When aware of a drug/alcohol problem write it down.

 

When we own the problem, it is the beginning of the solution - a Higher Calling in life.  We are then on an honest endeavor to change for the better.

Alcohol/drug addiction can be very difficult to see, even in late stages.

 

The main concern is whether it is getting in the way of your family, health or work. Take an honest look at these issues. You deserve to be free from negative choices.

If someone else is concerned about your drinking or drug use...

 

Accept their feedback and question it. Try not to dismiss it. It's ok to doubt them.

Getting sober and clean is a process.

 

Sometimes it is a matter of not using for a while so you can see the benefits and also the harm done to self and others. Then you can have hope.

Acceptance of Addiction - There's no shame in changing your mind.

 

Most of us had a long period of adaptation to our drug of choice. When defeated, some of us surrendered to win. Now we're doing well.

Non medication, affordable solutions to drug and alcohol addiction works.

Without twelve step PARTICIPATION, most alcoholics suffer from depression ranging from confusion to built up anger, fear and restlessness to extreme detachment from life. Many resort to other mood-altering chemicals under the illusion that they now are sober and stable. Consensus is that peace and success can be found through a spiritual solution.

Demi Lovato makes first public statement since apparent overdose: 'I will keep fighting'

Great exposure. This can inspire many. I wish more people in the limelight would come out.

The key to long term recovery is surrender, not fighting.  God bless Demi!

We can all get and stay sober and clean by copying successful recovering people.

 

We can't all do what Stephan Curry does but we don't have to. We CAN do what other successful recovering people have done.

The window of opportunity opens infrequently for drug addicts and alcoholics.

We must surrender when we can because there may not be another chance. Watch the news for the casualties which occur daily.

Sobriety is the center of life for an addict and/or alcoholic.

 

All else revolves around my Program. Sober and clean, all is possible. When anesthetized from reality, I have a problem I can't solve.

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...
