The Tools of Recovery

No one ever told me that recovery was going to be easy. It is something that we all have to work at on a daily basis. Life is full of ups and downs. It is how you deal with these which defines your recovery. I would always use a bad day or a personal problem as an excuse to go gamble instead of facing that difficult situation in a healthy and constructive way. Thankfully I now have tools which help me to deal with problems so that I don't have to run away. These tools may be different for each person. It could be talking to someone in recovery, turning to your Higher Power, going to a meeting, seeing a professional counselor or any number of other things. The most important thing is that you need to have something you can lean on when things aren't going your way. And guess what?! Things aren't always going to go your way. This is life and sand traps and speed bumps are a part of it.

I am here for any of you and would like to hear what your tools are..

Happy Recovery!
