Recovery: restoration or return to any former and better condition
Ok folks now that we’ve set some parameters, let’s get strapped in and embark on your journey of Recovery.
Since there seems to be a lot of misconceptions as to what Recovery actually is and what it involves, let’s start by taking a look at what Recovery isn’t.
Recovery IS NOT;
Being clean and/or being sober
Getting a job
Saying “I’m sorry”
Doing service work
Working the steps with a sponsor
While all these things are good and will help you on your Recovery Journey, of themselves they are not Recovery. Being returned to any former and better condition involves much more that what is listed above. The Recovery Journey does take time, energy, patience and discipline.
But most importantly, Your success is dependent upon you giving yourself over to three character traits: willingness, open mindedness and honesty. If you will employ these into a planned program of action, Recovery is very possible for you.
Simple-just not easy.
Give this some thought for a bit and we’ll pick it up here next time.
Until then ……. be sure to tell a friend about us.
Thanks for visiting us – come back soon.
Remember: “It is what it is and “it ain’t nothing but a thing!”
