Today is going to be straight forward and simple. Recovery really is about a choice, it is about choosing to do something to help change your life! Can you slip? Yep. Will it take effort? Yep! But it all starts with a choice!
And before everyone starts with the whole ... "but I'm powerless" shit. Let me ask you something. What drug are you currently CHOOSING to use? That's right, you choose meth over opiates, or oxies over roxies. You DO have a choice! Stop buying into the 12-step bullshit mantra about you are 'powerless'. You are only powerless when you are HIGH! After that, you have free choice again.
Are their factors that you have to overcome? Yep. Are there things you must, unlearn? Yep. Do you have a valid choice to work on those things, or not? Hell Yes!
Stop the excuses! Stop pointing out the window, and start looking in the mirror!
You are only powerless, if you choose to be!
