Recovery brings restoration of healthy peace of mind. Addiction brings a false sense of peace. The reality of life is this……Everyone is looking for something to bring them happiness. In this never ending search for happiness, individuals can fall into false expectations and false hopes. No one dreams that they will grow up to be addicted to drugs, pornography, alcohol, food, gambling,infidelity, enabling others etc. The world we live in is definitely not perfect. We must learn from our past mistakes. Restoration is a rebuilding process. Learning to rebuild a broken life can be difficult. You do not have to do it alone. That is what twelve step programs and Celebrate Recovery are meant for. Restoring lives one step at a time. There is a saying in some twelve step programs……Keep coming back, It works if you work it. The key is you have to keep coming to the meetings. You cannot do it alone. Support groups offer recovering individuals tools to restore their broken lives. Hearing the success stories of those in recovery can give you hope and inspiration.
