Most of us made all kinds of promises to ourselves and to our families. We could not keep them. Then we came to recovery which said, “Just try not to drink or use today." (If you do not drink or use today, you cannot get drunk or high today.)
In recovery, we do not tell anyone to do anything. We just talk about our own drinking/using, the trouble we got into, and how we stopped. We will be glad to help you too.
We tried all kinds of ways. We made our drinks weak, or just drank beer, or we did not drink cocktails, or only drank on weekends. You name it, we tried it. But if we drank anything with alcohol in it, we eventually got drunk. If we used any drug, we eventually got high.
Do you “need" a drink or drug to get started, or to stop shaking? This is a pretty sure sign that you are not drinking/using “socially."
At one time or another, most of us have wondered why we were not like most people who truly can take it or leave it.
Be honest! Doctors say that if you have a problem with alcohol and/or drugs (DUI/DWIs, accidents, etc.) and keep on drinking/using, it will get worse. Never better. Eventually, you will die, or end up in an institution for the rest of your life. The only hope is to stop drinking and using.
Before we came into recovery, most of us said that it was the people or problems at home that made us drink or use. We could not see that our drinking/using just made everything worse. It never solved problems anywhere, anytime.
Most of us used to have a “few" before we started out if we thought it was going to be that kind of party. And if drinks were not served fast enough, we would go someplace else to get more.
Many of us kidded ourselves into thinking that we chose drinking and/or using because we wanted to. After we came into recovery, we found out that once we started to drink/use, we couldn't stop.
Many of us admit now that we “called in sick" lots of times when the truth was that we were hungover, drunk or high.
A “blackout" is when we have been drinking or using for hours or days which we cannot remember. When we came to recovery, we found out that this is a pretty sure sign of addictive using and/or alcoholic drinking.
Many of us started to drink or use because mind-altering substances made life seem better, at least for a while. By the time we got into recovery, we felt trapped. We were drinking and/or using to live and living to drink or use. We were sick and tired of being sick and tired.
If so, you are probably struggling with substance abuse issues. We can show you how to stop!
