Recovery Takes Time

Recovery in the program is a slow process. You just can’t skip certain steps and then expect to be miraculously healed from your addiction. One of the most important tools of the program is finding a sponsor. A sponsor is a member of the twelve step program who is preferably the same-sex that you are. Your sponsor is the individual that you needs to call when you feel like using. If you are unable to reach your sponsor, call another member of the twelve step program. Under no circumstance should you be calling your former buddies who still use. This would only make matters worse. Don’t be so willing to give up your sobriety so easily. Stand up and be proud of yourself. You’ll get through life’s rough spots Always remember…….This Too Shall Pass. You sponsored may require to call them everyday or every others day. Remember that the program only works if you work it.
