Will first and foremost an addict must admit to themselves that they have a problem! Then it is like Einstein said,”we cannot solve the problems with the same kind of thinking that created them.” This rings so much truth in life itself and really doe’s need to be incorporated into your recovery process for true success.
This battle the addict goes through is tough, first the physical, that is hard but depending how long you have been dependent on the drug will be the easier part of the battle. The spiritual and mental battle will continue for the rest of your life. Relax it does get easier to manger your habits. But you need another approach in life for a real change to evolve.
Surround yourself with positive people who will encourage you, read and study about personal development and growth. This is the complete opposite of what you have been in, this is needed for recovery and take it as you go. But start as soon as you can, the sooner the better your life will be. What you will find out once you are free of this curse is that life itself is beautiful and yes you are worth it 🙂
