A DAY AT A TIME

Recovery from drug addiction or any other form of addiction for that matter is a long road which you need to travel for the rest of your life.

Taking it a day at a time is the best course of action. A step at a time, little by little. No rush.

This journey will be full of ”mountains, valleys, rain, sunshine, floods, droughts, famine, accidents and many other trials”. But in the face of all this, perseverance is key!

When you fall, get up and go on!

Never give up, you are capable of doing more than you can imagine. You are strong enough. Keep walking ahead.

Let go of the baggage (shame, guilt, resentment, fear, anger, anxiety and anything that makes you weary), travel light;  you are sure to feel better and be focused on the road so as to be able to avoid the obstacles that lie ahead.

Believe in yourself. Don’t do this alone, seek support from friends and loved ones.
