I am currently in the process of recovering from a painkiller addiction. I have been in the constant cycle of use/quit/withdrawal/relapse for the entire 2.5 years that I have been living in my current house. Thus I definitely have lots and lots of horrible memories tied to this house.
My lease is currently up, which means I have the opportunity to find a new house to live in. I am thinking that maybe this would be a good opportunity to get a fresh start in a new place where I have no memories of withdrawal. I hate moving and this house is the perfect size, but unfortunately the majority of the memories I have here are of being in a constant state of withdrawal.
Has anybody in recovery every gone to these extremes just to get a new start? Did you feel that it made a big difference?
