As far as being receptive to happiness and all my feelings, I don't have a clue to either, but I know these are things i'm going to have to address. Easy for me to write about these things, but I don't have the foggist idea how to do them. When said "get in touch with your feelings", I always thought that sounds nice, but I never understood it, or how to do it.

If you don't mind me asking, are you recovering also? Don't want to put you on the spot, but I just did. Ha!. Thanks,

The higher power issue is a struggle for everyone, just about. And it is an experience that is unique only to the individual.
But the process of feelings, happiness and such you already have those. And like most of us may have confusion at times about what to do with certain mixes of feeling. It is what we do within that confusion that is telling. Some people may respond immediately with a judgement or a plan, sometimes they may do nothing.

Have you ever been in any type of talk therapy?

No, I am not in recovery. But I also see recovery in a broader sense.
For what it's worth I struggle with cigarette smoking.
