Enjoy your sober life by being in the moment, take your time and don’t rush anything, never lose focus on your goals and strive to be happy.
You went to rehab and now you are clean and ready to start your life again, but you now realize that you lost the trust of your family. This doesn’t return with a simple apology.
Life after recovery is not easy, but it has a purpose and a meaning. I still have problems like anyone else, but I find solutions. I still get mad, but I control myself and I don’t do stupid things anymore. Sobriety is beautiful and having tools to use will help you become better and better every day.
You are a magnet — Likes attract likes
Peer support has been shown to be a key factor in helping people.
Be the inspiration that others need and be the good thing that happens to others.
If you are in recovery, sit, relax and take a deep breath—you are doing the right thing and you are doing great.
You have dreams to achieve and you have places to see, so make the change right now and then be the reason someone else gets clean.
A recovering addict is a lot like a newborn, trying to learn and experience so many things for the first time, and everything is new in his reality. The food tastes new, lots of emotions are new, the sunrise that he sees every day suddenly looks different in his eyes, music has a different meaning and effect on him, and he will start to enjoy the simplest things that, for a fact, didn’t affect him before.
I just woke up one morning and I decided that I don’t want to feel like that anymore. So, I changed.
