Relapse (Temporarily) Averted

After struggling all day to avoid using and, subsequently, getting kicked out of sober living, I made an agreement with myself to keep me sober… at least for another week or two.

Basically, my prefrontal cortex cut a deal with my lizard brain whereby, in exchange for a longer, controlled relapse, my lizard brain has backed off the insatiable urges it’s been bombarding me with for the last several days.

Now, the question is whether my prefrontal cortex will shaft my lizard brain once I’m a little more stable or will my lizard brain have me on a plane to Greensboro next month.

I guess only time will tell…
