Sitting here once again at McDonalds, I know get a life, it is labor day and everybody is out and having picnics, B.B.Q. and all kinds of outdoor activities. It is the official end to summer, kids are back or going back to school and fall is just around the corner.
The power of a humans mind is for better words, mind-boggling! You can will yourself to just about anything if you put your mind to it. For the drug addict, they have issues with controlling the urges that keeps cycling in their mind.
In any attempt to recovery you will have challenges, stress helps brings on these urges for the substance that the addict is addicted too.
So if there is any way you can avoid unnecessary stress and drama this is a start, build yourself around people who really care about your progress and do activities that will bring you harmony into your life instead of strife, this is called stress management.
Understand that this is also not a quick fix like the substance have fooled your mind to believe that it is when in fact it is the root to all of your problems. This is your battle, and only you can win it. The good news is that you can win it along with positive mind-set even mountains can be moved.
The funny thing about the mind is though that it is a double edge sword. What I mean by this is what ever you will, if it is bad, then it is bad, if it is good then it is good. That is what Jesus meant by “you reap what you sow.” The laws of the universe and nature are just that, they are set in stone!
Is addiction a disease? Yes, is it a demon from hell, or is it just my mind telling me this and I can over come this with help and a positive mindset and environment around me?
Well, it is what it is, and what ever the power your mind feeds it, the choice is yours.
