In the event that you are perusing this agenda then I sincerely compliment you for making the right stride. It may not even altogether have been your decision, it may not be near your thought or it is possible that “mental breakthrough” that is frequently heard in the blessed corridors of AA. Truth is that it doesn’t make any difference how you made it to the “Recovery Checklist”. What is important is that you have your bag, trash container or cushion case out (contingent upon voyaging style). Presently you simply need to sort out what to bring, the amount to bring and WHAT NOT TO BRING.
1) Pack more garments than you might suspect you will require, you will require them all – If you figure you needn’t bother with chilly climate garments, bring them. Assuming you figure you don’t require blistering climate garments, bring them. Assuming you think 5 changes of garments is all that anyone could need bring 10 or 15. You likely could be there for a LOT longer than you might suspect. I can totally ensure that you meet companions and offering a comfortable coat on a cool night can be extremely fulfilling.
2) Photos of loved ones – You will be cut off from your friends and family. You will miss them profoundly. Bring some photographs and keep your spirits high.
3) Bring desserts and little bundled snacks – You will pull out and your psyche will need something to replace the substance. You will observe a larger number of individuals needing sugar in Rehab than you might potentially envision, including you. Permit yourself a little solace, a little solace food.
4) Cigarettes on the off chance that you smoke – If you smoke and you are thinking about stopping during recovery, I wish you karma. You will just wind up mooching smokes from individuals around you. Try not to commit the error of not being ready there are consistently individuals in recovery that take without giving. Try not to be one of them! Assuming you conclude that you can stop then you will probably be assisting many new companions by surrendering the smokes that they frantically need. Bring them!
5) Electronics and PDAs – It relies upon the recovery concerning whether they will permit PCs, Ipods and other electronic gadgets. Some remove them and others take into consideration restricted utilization. PDAs specifically are quite often remini bongs for salemoved, siting the camera that is introduced in them (HIPPA rules). You might need to get a dispensable telephone that has a ton of minutes and no camera before you go assuming you want to keep in contact with people outwardly. It is this creators assessment that the more reach you have with the external the more probable you will have inconvenience in early recuperation, such a large number of feelings in an exceptionally enthusiastic time.
6) LEAVE THE SUBSTANCES OUT! – We all go into recovery “hot” (well around close to 100% of us do). We as a whole ponder the last possibility exertion, similar to we need to be pretty much as high as could really be expected so we can get our funds worth. Avoid it with regard to your pack, don’t get the ball rolling severely by getting things observed when they search you, and they will. Assuming you have toiletries with liquor or other over the counter meds that can get you high, simply fail to remember it or find an item that works in its stead.
Things most likely look exceptionally faint for you right now, you are restless, apprehensive and embarrassed. You are in good company or soon you won’t be distant from everyone else. The moment you stroll into recovery you will see that everybody you experience is feeling very much like you. Very soon you will have many companions and snickering harder than you at any point anticipated.
