"I look inside myself to find my peace"


There IS Hope - Never Give Up!

When we are in our addiction..we believe that we are alright. We fool ourselves into thinking that we are doing fine. We have our drink or drug of choice & the world seems surmountable. But whats really going on with us is, we are headed for a "head on collision" with life. We WILL hit bottom at some point. Hopefully it won't be at the medical examiners office. If we're lucky we will have a rude awakening...in jail. Or perhaps with a friend who will have the courage & love for us to tell us we need to STOP KILLING OURSELVES! If we're sick enough of being sick, we'll listen, get help & change our lifestyle. We will realize that we can exist without our addiction. We will learn to overcome the triggers & cravings that can cause us to relaspe. We will see that we were so wrong about how we saw our lives & we will do all we can to make it better & to make ammends for all the wrong we did to our loved ones & others. Eventually as life happens...we will have the opportunity to help someone else that is walking the same path we just walked. We will reach out to help them. And once we've helped them & we see that our efforts were not in vain..at that moment we'll realize just how fortunate we are to have come through the haze of our addiction. There is always hope! Never give up!

  1. Everytime I watch this, I realize how fortunate I was to choose the right path & get rid of my addiction & get my life back. When I think about it, I was abusing alcohol & drugs ever since I was 12 until 7 years ago when I hit the bottom of the bottom. It was difficult to see past the addiction. But after doing awful things to my family & myself & realizing I have 3 choices, death, jail or sobriety. I'm grateful I chose wisely. The road will be difficult but its well worth it. It beats the hell out of the other 2 options. Please if you need help, reach out & take it. You are NOT alone. You deserve to live a sober, UNaddicted, happy life. You merely need to step on the path.
