Vepesid (Etoposide)

It is your thinking that makes you unhappy. It is your mind and its attitudes that make you fearful, anxious, angry, jealous or full of self-pity. And it is these faulty attitudes that make you unhappy.
Let’s look at another example. Suppose you decide that it’s time in your recovery to get a job. You see a suitable one advertised. You write in for it and get an interview. But after a few days you get a letter saying that you are not getting the job.
Your emotional reaction is a negative one. You feel depressed and angry and worthless all at once.
Have a closer look at these feelings. What are the thoughts in your head? Here are some of the things your mind is saying: ‘It’s not fair. I’m doing all I can to recover from addiction, and now I get this kind of set-back. That firm have no right to do that sort of thing to me. The rejection might have made me go back to using. I’ll never get a job at this rate. I am obviously worth nothing. I’m a hopeless, worthless human being.’
These negative thoughts are what are producing the anger, self-pity and bad feelings in you. What db they say about your inner attitudes?
Well, one of your attitudes is obviously that: ‘I am owed special favours because I gave up using drugs.’ Another attitude, and this is a dangerous one, is: ‘If things don’t go the way I want them to, I can use drugs again.’ And here’s another: ‘If at first I don’t succeed, it means I never will get anywhere.’ And here’s a real downer attitude: ‘Not getting this job means I am a bad, worthless, hopeless human being.’
All these attitudes are irrational. There’s nothing in the order of the universe which says that recovering addicts are entitled to special treatment. Indeed, there’s nothing in the universe which says life’s joys and problems are going to be distributed fairly to anybody. Fairness doesn’t come into it.
It’s also irrational to let yourself think that if things don’t go the way you want them, then you can use drugs. Who will suffer from that? Not the firm who failed to hire you. You will suffer.
Finally, the healthy attitude to disappointment is one that gets on with trying, as in the motto: ‘If at first you don’t succeed, try, try and try again.’ Being rejected for a job really says nothing about you as a human being. Maybe somebody better qualified turned up.
