I Am Not Defined By My Addiction

Addiction recovery is a never ending journey, and a journey that takes patience. I have learned in my experience as a recovering alcoholic, that my behaviors still must coincide with my thought processes. 

You must stay positive for recovery to remain an active part of your life. Sometimes, the good ol’ saying “fake it until you make it” resognates true in a person’s daily approach. You must be real to yourself though, and know the difference between the talk of you or your disease. I am able to rationalize with the best of them, but for 5 years and 8 Months, I haven’t been able to rationalize picking up a drink. This is because I’ve stayed true to myself, and I seek positivity in my day. 

What are you doing or not doing to seek positivity in your day?
