When humility leaves, the grace of a Higher Power goes, addiction recovery goes.

 

We are sober and clean by the grace of a Higher Power, not our brilliance, not our greatness, not our power. We have been given a gift and have to work to keep it.

P.S. The pay is good; the pension plan even better.

Love and Peace,

Over-thinking your addictive symptoms - Stop this and trust others who have successfully recovered!

 

Successful recovered (or recovering people) have undergone your dilemma. Let them coach you back to life. What do you have to lose besides "face."Alcohol and/or drugs have already taken that away.

Love and Peace,

Recovery consists of an initial spiritual connection, sometimes unknown to the recipient.

 

Most of us have asked for help at some time in a blackout or a brownout and don't remember. It worked anyhow.

Recovery from drug/alcohol addiction - I'm at a meeting to save my life, not to say something special.

 

Sometimes there's a tendency to say something impressive.

The most valuable thing I have to give is usually my kindness.

Parents and spouses are in a great place to help their loved one to recovery from addiction.

 

Your pain and loss is the addict/alcoholic's pain and loss. Communicating this to them with love and assertiveness boundaries can bring them back long enough to get him or her to treatment. The secret is to work on your healing. This can be a win/win.

Love and Peace,

Family recovery from addiction - All can heal.

 

The family suffers alone, like most helpers at times. We think that we only heal others and do not need healing. Humility that leads to Self Care is the solution.

In addiction recovery, Serenity is of the most value.

 

With serenity, we find contented recovery. With contentment, we find joy through helping God and others.

Addictions, mood-altering chemicals, deprive us of this connection.

The healthy recovering person learns to value spiritual things, then self, then family.

God,  Recovery, and Self become the same as fear lessens. Then we can give to others.

Recovery from Drug/Alcohol Addiction - Parents and Spouse create change, not more drugs.

 

Loved ones are the best ones to influence addicts and alcoholics. Love and limit setting can wake up an addict. This is easier than it seems. Real love for self leads to power to help others.

Love and Peace,

 My recovery world with its support helps me conform to recovery ways.

 

In my earlier days, we called ourselves non-conformists. Every generation individuates in its own way. When I was struck sober and clean, I liked helping to contribute without insisting on having my way.

In recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, we find an invaluable peace of mind.

There is hope for all who want to escape the darkness of addiction. There is hope for those who have escaped the perils of addiction for a while.

I wake up now and say, "Thank you God!" instead of "Oh God!"

 

The only time I have ever felt peace of mind and absence of fear is when I became sober and clean.

Get sober and clean, still work and be with your family.

 

We must adapt to the world of beer commercials, movies with drugs and alcohol abuse and liquor, beer signs all over town. Start getting used to this and have a Program to help you through the tough times.

Getting off of all mood-altering chemicals, including alcohol, is easier than you think.

 

We need support and direction from people who have been there and know about detoxification and viable treatment. Then we need to get rid of all excuses. Call me @ (407) 786-1913.

Love and Peace,

Getting sober and clean is so much better than being drunk, high and lost.

 

If you get this opportunity put everything you have into it.
