Grateful addicts don’t Use.

I’ve heard that said many times in meetings. That grateful addicts don’t Use. No matter what.

Well. Since my stroke I have a new found sense of gratitude. I’m grateful on a whole new level. I remember vividly how I used to take life for granted. I was un appreciative for the many years of blessings that I had received. I was being selfish and ungrateful. I realize that I need to get more involved in serving others. Giving back that which was so freely given to me. I share my life with you and others on a regular basis. I can be and need to be doing more. No matter what is a way of life for me. It’s not just a slogan. I suffered a major stroke and my beautiful mother passed away less than a month apart and I didn’t use that as an excuse to pick up. I share this as a means of hope for anyone who may be struggling with an illness and think that they cannot get through it clean. Yes you can. You never ever have to use drugs again. NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS.

God’s grace and mercy keeps me going strong. I only have a daily reprieve so every 24 hours that I stay clean is a day won. I coming up on 6 years clean next month. I am extremely proud of myself. I was the addict who just accepted the fact that I was going to die an addict. Boy was I wrong. I found a way out. I share my story with you freely in the hope that my story will inspire someone and help them believe that they too can get and stay clean.

Recovery Is Possible.

Peace and blessings

  1. Bless you for sharing this. I remember many years ago, and addict told me they picked up again because of the medications given to them during their bout with a severe illness. I didn’t know, hadn’t been there…but then the day came, where I almost died, and day 5 of taking the meds, I told the Doctors “It doesn’t hurt that bad”. They went all in about the surgery and the seriousness of it, and all that was to come. My response; “It doesn’t hurt that bad”. My Primary Doc, knew what I meant and he stopped the heavy narcotics. I don’t care what happens, but what I do know is, when I start to feeling like I felt that last day…Hmph, it just doesn’t hurt that bad! In Fact, Nothing Hurts That Bad!!! I love you so very much and it has been a Blessing being on this Journey with you. My Struggle, is My Strength! Hugs
