The Struggles & Stages Of Recovery.


In life we all go through phases and grow, and as an addict it life rewards seem to be focus on only the substance that we are dependent on, or so we believe at the time we are under its influence.

We go through struggles and pain during these phases and usually in a shell or cocoon, then if we do decide to make a change for our self’s then we break out of the cocoon and become a caterpillar eventuality transforming into this  beautiful butterfly.

I’m using this example for a reason, this will always stick with me for the rest of my life and I do hope and prayer that by me sharing this it will some how and some way encourage someone to help them self from this disease called addiction, or for any other kind of challenges that life might throw at you.

I will share this briefly with you, about the part of the journey my mother was on. You see back in around 1987 or so, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Lord knows she fought the good fight and had many operations, and I won’t go into this so much because this still today in 2013 makes me feel very sad and angry.

But while she was on her death-bed in hospice I’ll never forget what she said to me, “Robert, I’m in my cocoon now, shortly I will become a butterfly.” She understood this suffering from her disease I pray that maybe you have the very same vision, God Speed and Peace 🙂


We are here to share our experience with drug addiction how it affects both the addict and their families along with their friends. Bringing awareness about the war on drugs an how it has failed in many ways. You are welcome to comment even if you might disagree with the post, we here are a free speech zone. We will post it as long it's constructive towards solutions rather then being to harsh and judgmental causing it to be part of the problem.
