Recovery from addiction is a marathon. Just move forward.

Character building is the essence of recovery!

 

There are five feelings: glad, mad, sad, fear and guilt. All other feelings are subsumed under these. When you label the feeling, you can work with it. You can begin to let go.

We leave hardly anything behind when we give up alcohol and drugs.

We gain family, friends, self esteem and career...

My recovery  anniversary is today. The Best Day of my life!!!

 

One of the biggest joys is to share the same day with my friends, Alan and Bill. I now am part of a great Fellowship. Cards from my Mother and Sister have helped me today as they have for the time I've been sober and clean. I have one for each year. I am blessed. God is good!!!

Recovery from addiction is a matter of perception.

 

When I realize that I am now free and have a chance to fix any problem by using my recovery tools, I am happy. I enjoy chaos free living.

Recovery from addiction is a precious gift.

 

My recovery is a gift yet I had to do much work to get it and much work to keep it.

Most of the work is spiritual and mental.

Recovery from addiction means recovery from MORE!

Contentment is liking what you have.

In addiction recovery, we have to stand for our beliefs.

I believe in drug free recovery with God and those who show us how it's done. Money is not the goal.

Recovery from addiction is great, even in the rough times.

 

We retrain our minds to be positive through prayer, listening to our peers, reading and meditating because now we can. This is a gift available if we work for it.

Sober and sane. What a goal!

 

For most, it takes a year or two to settle down, detox physically, mentally and emotionally. The first step is honesty about our dilemma, followed with spiritual efforts to do whatever it takes to reverse the damage to self and others.

Successful recovery from drug/alcohol addiction means surrender not material success.

Successful recovery entails developing maturity and sound thinking, devotion to a higher cause. Money, job, relationships success will follow.

Drug/alcohol recovery is available to ALL.

 

Treatment consists of having a coach and a Daily Program of recovery learned from recovering people over the years. Abstinence and a lot of work, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically are necessary. The work is good work!

Recovery from addiction is first abstinence, then clarity of mind and peace.

 

Recovery should have quality - solutions to life's fears and greed.

Recovery from alcohol/drug addiction means surrender to another way after your way did not work.

The best way is to use the way of successful recovering addicts/alcoholics. It is a "doable" path to a successful life.

Persevere for the first little bit. Once you get the hang of recovery, you will like it.

The newest part is usually being sober and clean - dealing with reality. The good news is that you don't have to do it alone.

Recovery from drugs and/or alcohol addiction is a miracle.

 It should be honored and prioritized. Like a cornucopia, all good things with flow from it.

Real recovery means abstinence, lifelong commitment and giving it back.

 

Nothing heals the built up guilt and sadness, anger and fear from years of self centeredness as helping a newer person. While doing this, we are not thinking of self and our problems seem nonexistent compared to theirs.

Love and Inner Peace,
