Recovery Growth

“If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we are not really living. Growth demands a temporary surrender of security.”  – Gail Sheehy

I attended a self-help meeting yesterday and the topic was change.  I heard quite a few interesting tidbits as the group members took their time sharing.  If you have ever spent time with me or read my blog or articles you know that I often point out how good life is.   Life is Good!  I remember the first time I saw a T-shirt that said “Life is Good”, I thought “wow, that is great”!  Life is Great!  However, when it comes to recovering from alcoholism, drug addiction or any other life effecting substance we are essentially starting over in many areas of our lives.  Often it feels overwhelming and difficult.

Change is essential in our lives as human beings, the recovered life does not hold a patent on the concept of change it is not unique to us.  Everyone must go through changes in life in order to grow and become better and better.  Yet, for the recovering individual if we do not change starting with the basics, “People, Places and Things that lead us to using or drinking.  We want to give ourselves the best opportunity to overcome the addiction.  Therefore, steering clear of the temptations are highly suggested.

As we progress in our recovered life there are many areas of life we will want to address and eventually change.  We begin with where we are and go from there!

Go, Go, Go…
