Life

Compromise & Communication

"Every over paid marriage counselor (which is every one that exists) will tell you that compromise and communication are the most important aspects to any relationship; Especially the relationship an addict has with the junk.

On The Same Bus

"Recovery for me is about connecting with myself, connecting with my higher power, and connecting with the people that walk the path with me. The 12 steps give me the path, and my higher power is there whenever I'm in need. Movies are an important part of my recovery. Whether or not the movie is about recovery, in movies I can find examples of insanity, surrender, change and serenity. I need those examples to remind myself that I am on the same bus with the rest of us and that there is more hope than I can imagine." - E

6/5/14

Honesty

"Sure I would nod my head and agree with you, I had to. But I know I always had a choice. I was an addict not an idiot. Telling me I had a disease completely diminished my trust in you. As long as you allow a substance to define me, you will never see me. Recovery came when I found honesty. Honesty in my truth, not yours." - R

6/4/14

The Drink

"I can ask for help as easy as I can ask for a drink. But the drink always seems to come quicker." - R
