For a long time, I may have felt like my drug of choice was in control of me. But in reality, it was our values and priorities that changed while using, and I had the power to stop and seek help at any time. Think about it, What is bottom? What led me to seek help when I did? I was the one who made the choice. It may have been influenced by family, jobs or court, but ultimately made the choice. If substance had that kind of power over me, I’d never be able to change. Now, in recovery, it is important to understand the power I have to create my destiny. I have the power to create a future for myself substance free. Today, I will not allow myself to have my life dictated by my drug of choice. I am taking power and control back, and using it to better myself, and not using the excuse that I am helpless, but rather that I am powerful. Today, I am a conqueror of the lifestyle of use, and will be a force n recovery..
