Did ya ever think you were broken? That you weren’t normal? Most alcoholics and addicts do, I know I did. I used that type of self destructive thinking to justify my actions to the point of my own destruction. Because I believed that I wasn’t ‘worthy’ or ‘loveable’ I ran my life to the brink of my own extinction. What did I have to lose? Who would care, right? WRONG!! Addiction has ‘played’ us all, it used it’s power of letting us escape reality briefly to blind us then bind us. Did it make our life better? Did we improve ourselves? Did we make ourselves better by using? Ever hear the rumor about the successful alcoholic or drug addict? I didn’t think so. Recovery is a different story, it gives us the opportunity to rebuild our lives from the shattered addiction pieces, we have the chance to recreate ourselves to something bigger and better. We have the chance to be happy, we have the chance to live life again. We can finally give and receive love. The decision has always been there, it’s up to us to make the best choice for us. Thank you for reading :)JR WeaverThe Addiction Manifesto
