Recovery from addiction is great, even in the rough times.

 

We retrain our minds to be positive through prayer, listening to our peers, reading and meditating because now we can. This is a gift available if we work for it.

Love and Inner Peace,

Sober and sane. What a goal!

 

For most, it takes a year or two to settle down, detox physically, mentally and emotionally. The first step is honesty about our dilemma, followed with spiritual efforts to do whatever it takes to reverse the damage to self and others.

Recovery from addiction is first abstinence, then clarity of mind and peace.

 

Recovery should have quality - solutions to life's fears and greed.

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.

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.
