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.

Love and Inner Peace,

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.

Drug and alcohol addiction is highly treatable.

 

Treatment works when the addict/alcoholic does the recovery actions that has worked for millions.

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...

The Medicating of America - My new book.

 

We are becoming more and more clouded by dependence upon unnecessary drugs to include alcohol and Cannabis. This way of life leads to a desperate need for power, control and self sufficiency, reliance only on self. Thank God for those who fight for abstinence and clean living. Our way of life is worth its weight in gold!

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 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.

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.
