So here is the question of the day ~ How many numbers did you have (or do you still have) on your phone that were either direct or indirect contacts that could help you get drugs?
Now, how many numbers do you have in your phone that is a direct contact or indirect contact that can help keep you in recovery?
WHY are those numbers not at least the same?! The day you want to stay clean, with the same verbosity that you wanted to stay high ... you will not fail!
Look at it like this ~ I want you to picture yourself on the top of an 8' phone pole ... it can be a brown one or a green one. Then I want you to put out your arms and start leaning back like you were going to do the 'nestea' plunge!
Now, before you fall back to far I want you to mentally go through your list of 'friends', not just any kind of friend but those friends that would have your back no matter what. That if you called them right now, they would be on the way! I want you to line those 10 friends up behind you so they can catch you ... five on each side.
Ok, do you have those 10 friends? No, you say? Well then you should work on your recovery support group! Because once you have 10 really close friends the likely hood that you also have several other friends that could also help out. Work on finding those 10 and you will be right on point with your recovery support group!
