Guidelines for Addicts

The below was submitted by another Med Help member and I think it is incredibly on target. Please share it with anyone who may benefit from reading it.


You will not STAY clean IF YOU…

Refuse to admit you’re an addict.
Keep your addiction a secret.
Trade your drug of choice.
Continue to drink either frequently or occasionally.
Take any other mood altering substance.
Refuse to seek and embrace aftercare.
Continue to hang out with friends that use.
Stay with a spouse (boyfriend/girlfriend) that uses.
Hang out in places in which you used.
Think you can control your use.
Continue to use the same plan to quit thinking this time will be different.
Think willpower will keep you clean.

What does "trade your drug of choice" mean?

To me it means trading your drug of choice for an alternative such as clean living.

How are you going?
