That good you found a way to make it work. I had to do everything on my own after I visited with victims. If I didn't meet them I don't think i would've been able to kick it by myself. Gotta stay motivated for life bro
Wow, that really is an amazing story.
Really is a Nice story.
Although willpower has an important role to play in the treatment of any disease, no serious illness can be overcome by it alone. Diabetes or cancer cannot be beaten by just mentally resisting their progress. Similarly, addiction can also not be treated without seeking help. Over time, addiction creates some changes in the structure of the brain which makes it difficult to overcome, that is why getting help from medical professionals who can structure treatment plans accordingly is extremely important.
It stands to reason that if you quit your drug of choice but continue with your same routine, hanging around the same people and places, and not making any changes in your circumstances, that it will be much easier to slip back into your old behaviors and habits. Adjusting your mindset after addiction isn’t easy and it feels good when you stay sober in your life.
