 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.

Love and Peace,

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.

Love and Peace,

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.

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

Addiction Treatment - Keep Trying!!!

 

Never give up. Make a decision that you will get sober and clean. Sometimes, when there is resistance, you simply have to do the best that you can until you are ready to be coached.

Do not be ashamed of your addiction/alcoholism or your addict/alcoholic.

 

No one asks for addiction/alcoholism. We do not put this n our career goal list. What is important is to work on the solution. Go to Meetings to learn how.

Sober and Stable!

 

Stability is the goal. To come back from hell and become spiritually, psychologically, socially, and physically fit takes a clear head, drug free, and time.

Addiction eventually involves using to get relief from the problems caused by using.

 

Some people use because they need relief from abuse issues, loss... However, they will seek other means to cope when the drugs and/or alcohol no longer work. They will stop! The addict/alcoholic cannot unless he or she enters recovery.

There is no magic pill to help with years of built up guilt. shame. anger, fear and sadness let alone the shock of waking up to find you have these feelings. Recovery means much work. It is worth it and easier than the slow death of addiction.

Trust the recovery from addiction process!

Drug/alcohol abusers quit drugs and alcohol. Addicts do not. Get an accurate diagnosis.

 

When abusive drug/alcohol use creates consequences, the abuser quits because it is not relieving pain. The addict keeps abusing because of loss of control and cravings. This information will give you a start on how to treat the problem.

Addiction Recovery Programs should have integrity.

 

When choosing a recovery program, look for an 'abstinence from all mood-altering chemicals' rule. Otherwise, it is not an abstinence recovery program.

Above all other goals - Do not drink or drug to cope!!!


If you are an addict/alcoholic, getting high will result in failure. When sober and clean, our problems are temporary and solvable.
