As a divine being you are capable of anything in life! The only limitations you have you set on yourself, or are those you accept from other people!
With that being said, we also need to evolve to grow as a spiritual being and this growing is not attained while we are 'zoned out' or 'numb' from the 'pains' of life! How are we supposed to learn the value of having things if you numb yourself anytime you 'lose' something? How do you learn that life is sometimes 'painful' if you always numb any pain?
I have a new motto for you all: "Learn to LOVE the pain, for when the pain subsides only strength remains!"
In order to actually 'recover', you must work through the driving issues in your past; you must learn how to think again; you must balance your neruo and bio chemicals; you must repair your body; you must repair damage done during the addiction itself; you must learn who you are again and what makes you happy in life; and anything else that needs to 'evolve'. NONE of these things can be done effectively while you are 'high', 'numb', 'foggy', or otherwise adding outside chemicals to your natural homeostasis!
Look at it like this: if you go into Algebra high because you don't want to 'deal with' the class, and don't pay attention to anything ... you are going to have to be forced to take it over and over again until you finally 'learn' the material. This COULD be what 'life' is trying to do for you as well.
"Pain" makes us change ... don't run from it, EMBRACE IT!
