Nice collection of quotes... I totally needed that. I googled "recovery blogs" and found yours...just looking for some inspiration as I struggle to cope with a family member's alcoholism. Funny, you'd think it would be easier for me to know what to do with my drunkard of a grandfather being that I am in recovery myself, but such is not the case :(

He agreed to go to outpatient drug rehab (for Norco addiction) today, though, so that's a plus.

Thanks for reminding me of one of MY fave quotes: "If nothing changes, nothing changes."

Great quotes all. I can't pick out one as a "fave" but I think this one comes closest:

If you want something you've never had, you've got to do something you've never done!
- Tangela

I like the Margaret Thatcher quote as well. So very true.
