Recovery means surrender, not fight.

I would rather be beaten and be a man, than be elected and be a little puppy dog. Davy Crocket

Start each day with gratitude and empathy. It's a 'low risk' proposition.

Ask God for this each morning.

This will lead to continued stable recovery.

31 years sober and clean this month and 'lovin' it'. Life is good today!

Got a beautiful card from my 98 year old mother and loving sister. There's nothing like family unity. It's all possible through vigiilent recovery. I'm so grateful.

Johnny Manziel Gives Donald Trump Advice - Recovery Lesson # 1.

Lesson # 1 in recovery is to be a humble student and not the teacher.  Teachers do not get sober. Students can if they listen and learn how to get sober and clean. Overconfidence, resentment(s) and prescription pill abuse create relapses. Overconfidence is the worst as it is difficult to see and we confuse it with confidence/empowerment. Bigshots get drunk. Students get sober and clean.

Johnny Manziel offers Donald Trump advice before deleting Twitter account.

 

Shalise Manza Young,Shutdown Corner 9 hours ago

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was back on Twitter on Monday, offering advice to President Donald Trump before abruptly deleting his own account.

“Yo, POTUS,” his first tweet to the president read.  “Even I know to stay away from the notifications section on twitter. [Expletive] will drive you crazy, lead the country and let them hate.”

“Control what you can control and let the rest fall by the wayside,” read the next.

Manziel then deleted his Twitter account which is why neither of the above tweets are embedded.

Trump has long been obsessed with public opinion of him, and in recent days there was a report that the stories of the size of the crowd assembled on the National Mall for his inauguration bothered him deeply.

But Manziel, who has heard his share of public opinion and shaming over the last few years after several public missteps, wants to see Trump step away from his mentions. Manziel made a confessional of sorts on Twitter last week, saying he allowed himself to get “#LostInTheSauce” (aka he was drinking too much).

Thanks to his fellow Texas A&M Aggie Martellus Bennett, Manziel and a friend attended the AFC championship game on Sunday night. Manziel wore a Tom Brady jersey and winter hat with the vintage Pat Patriot logo, and basically live broadcast his experience through his Snapchat account.

This isn’t the first time the two men have found themselves in the same story regarding Twitter. Trump implied teams would regret not selecting Manziel as he fell toward the bottom half of the first round of the 2014 NFL draft.

Manziel has not played in the NFL since 2015.

Studying the brain will not produce sobriety/clean time or recovery.

Analyzing is what the addict/alcoholic needs to do less.  Intellectualizing gives the illusion of control - again what the addict needs to do less.

Recovery means drug free actions that produce recovery; actions taken by thousands of successfully recovery people who have years and decades of continued abstinence and successful lives.  

Call me if you want to learn how. (407) 786-1913

I have over 50 years of study, addictions training and private practice that has bred much success.I have never accepted a grant. I am sober and clean for over 30 years.

I will never accept a grant. Recovery should not be driven by money.  Saving lives comes first!

Families are vital in helping addicts get and stay clean and sober!

I have much respect for the families who have allowed me to coach them over the years.  Without them to provide information, set boundaries, inspire and coach, recovery would have been very, very difficult.

Thank you.
