The truth is, we are all in recovery; we’re all recovering from who we are to who we might yet become. In this book you will find quotes and stories of wisdom, compassion, and strengthening. Both addiction AND recovery are part of the human experience across time. And wherever you are at this moment in your life, take these three truths to heart:
1) You are not alone
2) There is no shame in being ill
3) There is courage in healing.
There is no magic to recovery from addiction. It is hard work. But in this brief life we repeatedly discover that success is often buried in hard work. Hopefully you love or will learn to love yourself enough to make your work a labor of love.
