Writing about traumatic experiences helps us grow past their negative pull. If we never fully explore our feelings about these situations, they become recovery scar tissue and block our growth.

Revisit a trauma in your life (perhaps the cause of your disorder or an effect of your addiction).

Jot down whatever details come back to you– the room you were in, the way people looked at you, the way you felt, etc. Include whatever bothers you about this incident.
