Recovery/HopeWhen you have finally had enough, you're ready to throw in the towel, possibly end your life through suicide. You are at a point of no return, either you go on abusing and slowly dying or you get straight/sober/drug free and start your life anew. I have personally found that this transformation can/will not take place effectively without faith, a Higher Power which I choose to call God. I placed my faith in everything but God for many years and all those things failed me, never holding up for any length of time.
I am not unique, nor are the millions who have conquered their addictions. It does take time but the results are more than worth the effort. Freedom from your addictions results in a peace which passes all understanding, freedom from fear, from want and a sense of belonging that really and truly satisfies the soul. You take on a new/fresh awareness all around you, similar to the spring air, the flowers budding and new life.
