old habits

I was impressed by this American Indian quote.

it is also said that, "old habits die hard"
we can't escape the fact that humans are by
nature, creatures of habit.

lucky for the other 90% of the world,
drinking and drugging are not part of
their daily routine.

while it is somewhat brute force when quitting our
drug of choice, (methadone maintainance excluded),
continued recovery requires a slow and steady
practice of learning healthy habits.

it's amazing how we can become accustomed
to praying in the morning; as opposed to our
former feeling of nausea, dread and despair.

we can use mental energy to plan our day,
rather than plotting the next drink or drug.

recovery goes against the instant gratification
grain, most of us are used to.
accepting the reality that there is no quick fix,
is a major factor in developing the patience
required for progressive wellness.
