– Baz Luhrmann
Trust may be hard to come by. But are so different from everyone else that somehow you can’t get sober, when millions of others have, and are actually doing it? You trusted that whatever you put into your body wouldn’t kill you, or you didn’t care if it did. Recovery is open and available for anyone who wants it. There is nothing inherently wrong with me that I can’t get it also. So then the question is do I want it? It may sound strange to say, but what prevents you from wanting sobriety? My life has become unmanageable because of my use, and yet I can’t imagine my life without my drug of choice. There is a wonderful, fulfilling life without substances. All you have to do is want to stay sober, more than you want to use. Start by thinking of what your hopes and dreams are in recovery, and then a day at a time start working towards it. Each day you stay sober will get a little easier than the day before. Today, I will trust that I can get sober, because so many others have shown me that it is possible. I will go after my sobriety like I went after my drug of choice. When I put in that kind of effort, nothing will stop me.
