I clicked on this article because I’m in this same boat. A pandemic has jokingly been my “hall pass” of sorts or a reservation I’ve had not knowing if I would survive through a global tragedy sober. I’m doing it by attending online meetings, but sometimes it feels like “What’s the use?” That’s the dialogue I get going from my time away from people and the spiral of thinking where this could go. Isolation plus not having to (for the time being) pay rent and having government checks sent out…it is a true test for addicts. Those who can hold on will be in a better place than when this began I believe both financially and with their recovery.
