The Medicating of America - Substance Abuse treatment should be drug free!

 

Drug/alcohol treatment takes much work. We need to be clear headed and motivated, not drugged.

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.

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,

If you are truly an addict, Recovery means abstinence from all mood-altering chemicals!

First, get an accurate diagnosis from a seasoned trained therapist.

Abusers, i.e., absence of cravings when abstinent and able to maintain emotions and connections with others, make up for harms done and not get cravings ever again, can just abstain. Otherwise, the quality of life is a major concern.

Addiction is for quitters.

 

Recovery allows us to finally find the Power to do our dreams. The cost is a little work.

Recovery from addiction means Hope for a useful life. What is better than that?

 

'Give me hope, help me cope with this heavy load.' - George Harrison.

Sometimes life is a matter of coping. Drinking or drugging at it gives you a new, perhaps unsolvable (?) problem.

Use your program. Ask for help when stressed.

We give up nothing when we get sober and clean.

 

We eventually realize that our recovery is a great gift. When you're on the bottom, going back up can be easy. And it gets better when you are awake.

Recovery gives us choices.

 

Choose between love or fear. One breeds happiness, the other depression.

We don't forget where we buried the hatchet.

 

 

Anger/fear is a major issue in early, middle and late recovery. At times, we can be shocked that we are still angry and petty.

When in recovery from addiction, we give  back; then we get back that which we lost.

 

Recovery from addiction entails asking God for release from the bondage of addiction and then making up for harms done to others.

Keep recovery from addiction simple.

 

 Try not to use your old thinking to worry and predict the worse. All things work out if you work for them. Use a coach who has been there..
