My journey

It's been a while since I posted my own words...
Truth is I have been struggling to maintain, due
to family issues and stress.

I have fallen at times, but have always bounced back

Having owned a sober living home for 11 years, I
have witnessed the triumphs and difficulties of maintaining sobriety

The nature of addiction is, that it is resistant to treatment;
You can witness it for yourself...just look at the folks going to
multiple rehabs, the relapse rate at AA meetings

Kudos to the 5% that traditional recovery works for...
you are the fortunate ones.

For the other 95% , it remains a constant battle

My experience has been , that there is no "one size fits all " solution
to addiction

Contrary to what you hear at rehabs or meetings...
relapse IS part of recovery

one reason why i quit going to traditional 12-step meetings was the attitudes toward relapse... their model just didn't seem to fit my experience and try as i might i couldn't seem to "fix" it (me). i have support, i have a "plan" that i follow-- it's been healthier for me, i think. good luck to you on your journey.
