So, if you’re into being sarcastic, it’s time to consider whether you’re just being humorous and light-hearted, or if there’s something deeper that you’re working on hiding. Yes, you’re in recovery, but does that affect how you communicate with others? For example, if you’re spending time with strangers, are you very likely to make comments that are dripping with sarcasm as a way to keep them from asking too many questions?
This is common, so if you find that you tend to communicate in this way, you’re not alone. However, you might find that you’re doing yourself more harm than good when you embrace it too much. Since sarcasm can often be fueled by anger, you might actually be trying to hide much of the hurt, anxiety and fear that your addiction has left you holding.
Sometimes, sarcasm can be a fun way to make a joke or communicate with others who “get” you. Other times, sarcasm is angry and can be hurtful. If you find that you’re often sarcastic with those who might not understand where you’re coming from, you might be hiding from something much deeper. (Elite Recovery Center)
