In his own words he describes what he sees as the next frontier for recovery, not only from addictions of all kinds but also from what lies in its wake. Sobriety is only the first step. “I think that many oldsters who have put our AA ‘booze cure’ to severe but successful tests still find they often lack emotional sobriety.

13. It’s easy to reflect on the past and get stuck on what you should have done differently. Sure, there are constructive lessons to be taken from past failures. However, hyper-focusing on what you wish you could have changed can lead to unhelpful negative thought patterns. You may think “Had I never tried heroin, I wouldn’t have gotten addicted”. Or “If I had gotten sober ten years ago, my life wouldn’t be such a mess”. Sure, that’s a possibility, but this way of thinking causes unproductive shame spirals, paralyzing us from taking action now. Although we can’t change the past, we do have a say in what our futures will look like. Focusing on what you haven’t done will only draw you away from accomplishing new things. Don’t let your past stop you from getting help today. There is no better time than now to invest in a better future. Contact a treatment center to learn more about recovery options.

68. What Drew Barrymore Learned From Getting Sober
69. Sometimes, the risk of failing can hold us back from taking action and moving forward. It is easy to become parlyzed by a fear of failure. Some are so scared of relapsing, that they don’t fully invest themselves in the recovery process. Others have already relapsed and as a result, don’t believe they are capable of healing from addiction. Although using substances after getting sober can be extremely dangerous and increase the chances of overdose, like in the case of Demi Lovato’s relapse, when one does occur, it’s how you respond that matters most. Learning how to respond to losses in healthy ways is a big part of recovery. Empower yourself by getting back up instead of allowing failure to defeat you. Work on constructive ways to approach potential failures. If you are afraid of relapsing, educate yourself on how to recognize signs of relapse, build a system of support and learn what to do in case one occurs. Although we will all experience failure, it is our resilience that determines the outcome.

77. What makes addiction so challenging? The disease creates an internal battle that people with substance use disorders struggle with on a constant basis. Many addicts desperately want to stop using drugs and alcohol. At the same time, they struggle with physical and emotional compulsions that lead them to continue. The thing they want to get away from also provides temporary relief from the physical and mental challenges it causes. It can feel like being imprisoned, with your mind and body at war with one another.
78. May you recover soon and be strong and healthy for the remaining days of your life. Good Luck with your surgery.
79. This is true for the addicts, alcoholics and their loved ones. As the partner of an addict, you too play an important role in the recovery process.

Avoiding criticizing them or pushing them to progress faster. Also, do not blame yourself. There are many ways in which you can offer support, while avoiding codependency. Allow your loved one to take ownership over their sobriety and recognize their small victories. Recovery is a continuous journey and some days will be harder than others, but do not stop.

176. If you are the romantic partner of an addict and are looking for love and addiction quotes, this truly applies to you. For the partner, the first step is recognizing that you cannot “fix” your significant other’s addiction. You also cannot force them to accept help, but you can care for yourself by creating healthy boundaries and seeking support. Addiction takes an emotional toll on those closest to the addict. Self care includes seeking therapy and attending recovery support groups such as Families Anonymous and Nar-Anon. Creating boundaries with your partner, and allowing them to be responsible for the consequences of their addiction is a big step. In some cases, caring for yourself implies knowing when to leave a relationship.

However, recovery is a process. Bearing the weight of others’ expectations can actually be counterproductive to one’s recovery. If your parent, significant other, daughter or son struggles with addiction and you want to support their recovery, rather than adding additional pressure, help keep your loved one focused on the present and provide positive reinforcement by recognizing what they have accomplished thus far.

If you are in a codependent relationship with an addict, it can be especially hard to focus on your own needs. Some even describe this relationship dynamic as addictive in nature.

379. “You try every trick in the book to keep her. You write her letters. You drive her to work. You quote Neruda. You compose a mass e-mail disowning all your sucias. You block their e-mails. You change your phone number. You stop drinking. You stop smoking. You claim you’re a sex addict and start attending meetings. You blame your father. You blame your mother. You blame the patriarchy. You blame Santo Domingo. You find a therapist. You cancel your Facebook. You give her the passwords to all your e-mail accounts. You start taking salsa classes like you always swore you would so that the two of you could dance together. You claim that you were sick, you claim that you were weak—It was the book! It was the pressure!—and every hour like clockwork you say that you’re so so sorry. You try it all, but one day she will simply sit up in bed and say, No more, and, Ya, and you will have to move from the Harlem apartment that you two have shared. You consider not going. You consider a squat protest. In fact, you say won’t go. But in the end you do.”

381. So often we feel powerless in this world. Experiencing trauma, injustice, neglect or abuse can make a person feel like they have little control over their own life. In fact, a recent study found that individuals who have experienced stressful childhood life events are more likely to lack a sense of autonomy and self-connectedness, which can lead to several negative consequences, including emotional challenges and difficulties managing new situations. One way people cope is by turning to drugs and alcohol. For some, when they feel powerless, abusing substances provides them with the illusion that they have control over something. In the long-run, however, addiction makes a person feel even more powerless then before.

"386. One day, I woke up in the hospital after a long and drunken stupor across the country. On the outside, I was a compilation of scars, bruises, and crappy CVS makeup. On the inside, I was broken and scared. Who was I when I wasn’t getting wasted? I couldn’t stand to look at myself in the mirror. I was terrified to live and terrified to die. That day, I had my last drink. The emotional bottom that I had hit couldn’t compare to the possessions I had lost and the close calls with death I had encountered. I went to detox and immersed myself into the recovery world that was around me.
Through time, persistence, and taking a hard look at myself, I have come to find a life that can’t compare to anything I have ever imagined. Today, I have the best of friends and best family, and I’ve had some of the most amazing adventures because I am sober. Unfortunately and fortunately, I’ve had the chance to live two lives, one of deception and one of triumph. Because of that, I have become set free from the chains that once bound me down. I have come to know true happiness, joy, and serenity.” —Tori Skene, 25, sober for one year"

451. While using substances may take away our inhibitions and anxieties, it also dulls wonderful parts of ourselves. Drugs and alcohol become a central part of an addict’s life over loved ones, careers, personal interests and other passions. Recovery gives us a chance to learn to live without substances while embracing what makes us unique. Rather than putting a bandaid over a gaping wound, recovery helps us address these issues head on and heal. Those in addiction recovery work to accept the parts of themselves they may have obscured with drugs and alcohol. This can lead to wonderful things and many new adventures. When we are able to accept ourselves without relying on substances, we have the opportunity to learn who we truly are and what we want in life.

461. “OK,” he said. “I have a question. I hope this doesn’t sound rude, but if you don’t drink, smoke, or do drugs, what the hell do you do for fun?” “This,” I said. “This.” I understand this question more than i understand most questions about sobriety. I understand it because I know exactly where it comes from and exactly why people ask. And I understand why it seems so incomprehensible. I understand it because it was my question. How do you vacation in Mexico without tequila, eat dinner without wine, brunch without champagne, party without shots? How do you live without the distinct pleasure of being silly drunk? Prior to October 2012, if you would have asked me what sobriety looked like, I would have said something that sounded like a fart noise while pointing two thumbs down. A life without alcohol might as well have been a death sentence of boring. A life half lived, with half smiles, that smelled like Clorox bleach. What I have discovered on this side of the bar scene is the exact opposite. Instead of the boring life I had anticipated before quitting booze, my life without alcohol is where my actual living began. Nothing was as half lived, forced, sad, or redundant as an existence that required alcohol to have fun.”
