First of all, congratulations on taking that step into rehab to face your addiction. It's a long, hard road, but we all have the strength within ourselves to overcome that addiction. I too feel a lot of guilt and shame. But you should be proud of yourself every day that you are seeking a change and a better life. Relapse is part of our recovery and only makes us stronger! Please smile, and keep your chin up! Be proud of who you are :)
