Recovery meetings will bring Hope if you work for it. Put about 30% of the effort that you put into drinking and/or drugging. Prioritize recovery and you will get things back. Put job, money, family, play or a relationship in front of your recovery and you will lose the job, money, family, play or a relationship.
Put recovery, meetings, steps, sponsor.. first and you will get back or get to keep the job, money, family, play or a relationship.
Learn from me and not the disease and its pain. Be wise and learn from watching, listening and reading.
The good news - It's good work, pay is excellent and the pension is even better!!!
Dr. Peter A. Butkins
P.S. Recovery is a JOY!
