a common phrase heard in the rooms a lot. the recovery program is simple but not easy. the last time I spoke to my sponsor she “wrote me” a prescription. Text me once in the morning, once at night, call at least one other addict in recovery each day, attend 3 recovery meetings a week, spend 30 minutes doing step work each day.
These things are simple. recovery from addiction requires me to be willing. If I am willing, I act accordingly and follow the instructions of my sponsor, if I follow them, I recover. Recover doesn’t mean that my addiction suddenly fades away. recover means I recover my life back, I take back all the things I lose when I am in active addiction. simple right?
