The Journey Begins

SURRENDER, IS NOT FAILURE

post
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

Those in recovery support groups and addiction recovery professionals can offer you a solution. They can show you how to overcome the compulsion to keep using alcohol and drugs, But the first thing you will have to do is turn over the control of your addiction. You will have to come to terms with the fact that you are powerless over alcohol or other substances. You will have to surrender to win. you have to trust that others can give you advice and direction that will help you to begin to lead a life free of dependence on mood altering chemicals

As long as you continue trying to control your drinking or drug abuse, you are only postponing the inevitable. there will come a day that you lose control, and something will happen that you didn’t mean to happen. When you have had enough misery and chaos in your life, you will be ready to surrender.
  
While it may feel like a blow to your ego at first, surrender is the first step on the path to freedom. Surrendering is not a sign of failure. instead it is the path to tapping into your greatest strength. By turning over the control of your addiction, you are giving yourself the opportunity to regain control over the rest of your life.

  2. This resonates with me! On my blog, I actually share having to leave my ex husband because he was an alcoholic. I wanted to change him and what you wrote reminds me of why I had to leave. You can’t change anyone. And it’s internal.
    I’m proud of you!!!
