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...

Families with addictive members suffer incredibly.

Too many times I have sat with mothers and fathers, spouses and children who have lost their loved one to addiction. And the person is sitting there. It is no longer the loved one they knew.

Trying to get sober and clean on your own is a fight with a pro.

 

We can attain a sober and clean lifestyle through support from a Higher Power and those who have been sober and clean. Our own efforts give us despair and depression. Twelve Step Programs breed JOY.

Relapse back to addiction is not necessary. Build your defenses.

 

Be inspired by adhering to a daily Program of recovery. Ask for release from drugs and alcohol in the morning; thank Him at night. Spend time with recovering people. Read recovery literature.Have a home group. Be a good person. Have quiet time. This is your daily PROGRAM.

                                                         

Best Wishes,

I was misinformed about addiction. Doc Pete

 

Getting sober and clean involved unlearning many things that I had learned growing up. For instance, I had to forget the ads that said that alcohol is cool and that glamorizing drugs makes for a great movie and that movie entertainers are cute when they get intoxicated, get in fights and go to jail and that the girls in the beer commercials love the guys who are drinking...

Take time to learn accurate information about social drinking, abusive drinking and addictive drinking.

Best Wishes,

There are problems other than alcohol and drugs. Abstinence is but the beginning.

 

In recovery, we clean up the harm we have done and grow to be the person we can be.

Holiday Recovery from Doc Pete.

 

Once sober and clean, do more recovery actions to stay sober and clean, not less. If something works this good, do more of it.

New Years is a time to stay sober and clean.

                

Use the 24 hour method. You can do anything for one day. If you don't take the first drink or whatever, you will not get high.
