What Do I Do Now that Someone Broke My Anonymity at School?
Call your sponsorThere is no cookie cutter solution to what you should do in your specific situation, but your sponsor or your therapist can help you process the situation. By making good choices to work through the disappointment you are feeling and not let the ignorance or malice of that person have power over you, you will have a much better chance at not relapsing.
Tell your parentsYour mom, dad, or guardian will want to know what has happened to you at school especially if it is negative in nature. They are there to protect your well-being and can help you to assess the situation at school to figure out how to handle the staff along with your classmates.
Calm yourselfThis is an epic time to use the recovery tools you have been learning to your benefit. The person(s) who broke your anonymity is really just clueless with what they are saying about you. A 12-Step program is a great program to adhere to and follow the suggestions. At the end of the day, if you keep doing what you are doing you will have exactly what you need and will not have to worry about missing out on opportunities that might make for a better future. The farther you get away from the drugs and alcohol, the fewer people will be concerned about what you have done in your past. Someone breaking your anonymity is pretty awful, however, take a minute to remember how far you have already come in your sobriety. Now that everyone knows that you are sober, maybe you will be able to help someone else who is struggling in their addiction and wants to get sober like you.
