Just to clarify I will be on a long term break from blogging about research, namely the neuropsychology of addictive behaviour and recovery.
I have found research quite obsessive and difficult not to get kinda addicted to it. I need to step away from it I think.
I have done enough research in 6 years to write three PhDs and a few books.
After a rest period, however, I will be returning to blog about my experience of recovery and helping others in recovery – that is my 6 month project moving forward.
In order to do this properly I have to lay the ground work.
Basically I have to accept that my recovery has gone off beam and that I need to go back to recovery basics myself in many ways.
It is a rare sign of humility for me, appreciating I need a good tune up.
I need to tighten my belt and start spending more time working with others. Especially those in early recovery. In order to be of service to them I need to get myself in fitter spiritual condition.
I did not realise how much my blogs mean to other people which is very humbling so I will continue with this project say from July to December, so hang in there as there will be lots more blogs on the experience of recovery, coming after a rest period to get back to a fitter spiritual condition.
