Remeber what we read before from SAMHSA:
“Recovery is a process of change whereby individuals work to improve their own health and wellness and to live a meaningful life in a community of their choice while striving to achieve their full potential.”
This is a process. You need a support network, either from your friends and family, co-workers, buddies (not the drinking buddies), or from a rehab center.
You can do it alone but it is way harder. Do it with some help and you are going to enjoy the feeling when they say “You done good!”
