Recovery

Posted by Thomas3.20.2010 Dec 30, 2018

Why do we refer to Addiction Freedom as Recovery? Because nicotine, like all addictive substances, robs you of YOU! Recovery literally means finding yourself. 

Each man's life represents a road toward himself.

Herman Hesse - 1877-1962 - Poet - Novelist - Painter

You can make 2019 the Year that you find your true self. All you have to do is stop your addictive behavior. Your brain will follow. This is one time - there are many others - when you can't just trust your thoughts. You have to step up to choosing which thoughts to "listen" to. For example, have you ever been tempted to haul off and slug somebody? My guess is that you decided not to do that because it isn't worth it. Well, you can decide not to give in to stinkin' thinkin', too! The decision part of your brain is different from the thought generating part of your brain.It's the reason positive affirmations work. It takes a lot of work to stop negative thinking, right? But we can re-learn and train our thinking to be positive - first by giving your brain positive thoughts and second by ignoring negative thoughts. Now, here's where some of us get confused because we try to fight with our negative thoughts - but it doesn't work! We have to stop paying attention to our negative thoughts and yes, pay lots of attention to our positive thoughts! We decide! Simple - not easy! 

Decide to ignore your cravings - not fight them and they will fizzle out. Decide to build yourself up for your Freedom Journey and you will see yourself become stronger, clearer, more perseverent than ever! You will see the you that doesn't need a Sickerette! It's here right now - trying to get your attention. Otherwise you wouldn't be reading this! So pay attention! Let you grow into the Real You!
