For An Addict, It Takes More Than Hard Work!


Some people don’t quit get what I’m trying to translate in this picture and that’s O.K. Some do see the message and at the same time this picture just might mean something completely different and that’s alright also as long as it is positive and they get some kind of growth out of it.

Any kind of growth in life is good, even more for an addict which in turns help them for setting goals in their life. I am in no way knocking hard work, heck we all know it is going to take hard work to break the cycle of addiction, what I’m merely trying to convey here is that in different stages in life itself, whether addict or not, you will have crossroads and opportunities to make a change for the better for not just yourself but for others also.

I have decided to give back and share some of my life and hope someone can get something out of it. The high’s and the low’s teach us all in life and sometimes we might not learn from them until looking back later on in life.

I will try to give you a little break down on what I mean in this picture.

First like I said, there is nothing wrong with working hard as long as it is productive and for your return. Now when doing this for the better of a large corporation and their share holders well that just might be a little bit different. Will they return loyalty back to you? You really should ask yourself this? If so (which is rare these days) then it just might be worth your investment, which is your time and labor that you are trading them.

Most addicts struggle in the job market, some do work and are functional addicts but still are stuck in the cycle needless to say. So even if they can do their work and on time without accident, if they are asked for a random drug test and fail, well what is it really about? Is it about keeping a swinging door open for younger and cheaper labor, ask yourself where is the loyalty now?

On the other hand, if you are like self-employed and building your own business there are risks but the rewards are greater. You will be able to make your own decisions, schedule your own hours and learn how to be discipline, along manage both time and money. This important for anyone but even more so for an addict, finding and incorporated these skills with your recovery will go much smoother.

So for myself I find going into your own business out weights getting a job, (Just Over Broke)! Now on to invest, when I say this it does not necessary means finances. There is all kinds of investing you as a person can do that can help you with your addiction. You know they say that idle time gives the devil a footstool. Well you can invest your time with helping others, find something you have a passion for, whether it is volunteer  or starting out a new business or job, to be successful you need to have passion for it!

Well when you start to take these steps in your recovery and life itself, what you will see is that you will be separating yourself from the mediocre docile part of society which don’t even understand anything about addiction and is a large part of the problem. So I have decided to share what I have learned instead to judge and hope and pray that people like my friend Angel Face find a way towards recovery and live a long and prosperous life.
