    • It really depends on the day. Some days I am in complete control and other days my emotions are so strong I can’t even listen to a sad song or watch TV for fear of a booze commercial starting the hungries. I think being honest about them with myself and others does help to create a distinction between my “real” feelings and feelings that are a product of mental illness or addiction. If I am feeling especially wonky I can look back at my day and say “Now what could be making me feel this way, or is this a normal mood?”
