Addiction Vs. Recovery
“Addiction is giving up everything for one thing; recovery is giving up one thing for everything”.
What does that mean?
Addiction is an ugly monster that has the ability to take everything from you that you hold dear. It likes to wear a mask and pretend to be a friend offering some relief from life’s chaotic struggles, but once it takes off the mask, all bets are off.
What often starts as one choice becomes one desire. You can’t fully enjoy anything else life has to offer without feeding the addiction.
One of the hardest, yet most important decisions an addict can make is to start down the road to recovery.
Recovery is a difficult, yet crucial step in reclaiming everything that addiction stole from you.
Recovery will not be an easy, pretty process. It is a scary, touch-and-go fight to reclaim what was yours.
Give up one thing to reclaim everything. It is that simple, yet it is incredibly difficult.
