Good afternoon! My name is Lauren and I'm a recovering alcoholic/addict. I had a friend of mine relapse, and was upset about making a mistake and going back out there. Sometimes you fall off the horse, but if you get up and try again, that is progress. If you stay down, you can't blame anyone but yourself. Don't make excuses, make progress. You have that choice to try again. Some may fall off time and time again, but if you get back up and try again, that is progress. Alfred A. Montapert said, "Don't confuse motion with progress. A rocking horse keep moving, but does not make any progress." If you want it bad enough you will stay on. There are some rocky roads out there that you will travel, but if you hold on tight, you can make it through anything. You just have to keep your head up and keep looking forward. And if you keep looking back you might fall off too. Look back only to see how far you have come. One day at a time, one step in front of the other. There are always people out there that want to help, but sometimes, we don't see that someone needs help unless their hand is held out. So call out when you need help, before you take that drink. Have someone you can call anytime, and that understands you, and always have a backup. Pick up that 100 lb. phone and reach out. That's all for today! Have a great one!
