Withdrawal symptoms? The First 90 Daze
I've never noticed anyone sharing here about the 90-day phenomenon that people in some other 12-Step programs have dubbed "The 90 Daze" - can others identify with this?
After a period of lurking here but not participating, I jumped in and started actually applying PA Tools and Steps - and the first few months felt like an actual withdrawal period. Physical and emotional turmoil became acute, and the temptation to procrastinate was stronger than ever at times. But this seemed to ease after the first few months, as I built the new PA recovery habits that I strive to apply daily now. In retrospect I think I was just noticing more, once the sedative/adrenaline effects of procrastination were absent.
What was your experience? Did you suffer anything like withdrawal? In the spirit of Step 12*, please share experience, strength and hope about your first few weeks/months of PA recovery. Thanks!
