"Piss in a cup and drink it everyday and you will know the mental compromises it takes to be an addict." - Sarge

This is dedicated to those who have touched the fires of life... To those who fall but stand back up. To those who get weak but find new strength. To those who break but rebuild themselves. To those who lose hope but believe again. This is for those who chance upon the recovery road. There is a life that awaits you. Your story matters. Write it...



"To speak of powerlessness to someone who has already been disempowered runs the chance of victimizing them again. Wether we want to admit it or not, the use of alcohol or drugs is not always because of a brain disease, but can be a way of coping for some who have experienced trauma or abuse. Drinking or drugging helps them bury that which they do not want to feel, so that they can live. To get sober means to feel again and face their trauma. This needs to be respected." - Recovery's Heart
