Every Day We Stand Strong.

The disease of addiction is a journey walked by many. We take steps forward. We take steps back. This is the real life story of that journey: of the struggle of good people living their lives and fighting a disease. It is a story of hope. A story of bravery. It is a story we share so that others may be inspired, so that others will know they are not alone. It isn't easy. But this is our truth. Because #WeAreShatterproof.

Give yourself a chance, it might seem like a scary road but you have made it this far. The road to recovery is an amazing thing. You can do it just take one step at a time, you are worth it!

You have to be ready to surrender some things. But you're not giving up these things. You're trading them in for a way of life that is miles and miles above the way life is now.

It's so worth it. Find people like you, with the same struggles. Learn to love you

If you have even the slightest bit of hope for a better future then quit NOW because on drugs, there is no better future. You cannot respect yourself and others on drugs. You cannot focus enough on the important things. Drugs will become your first priority then eventually your only priority. Then after that, it is yourself that pays.

Make the decision to not let your addiction define you. Find that person who can see your value and identity instead of your current circumstances and listen to them. It's not easy, it hurts, but it's possible and beyond worth it.

Chris DelSanto Read more

That the program of recovery is a WE program and WE are here to walk beside you as you recover. You never have to be alone again but you have to ask for help and find a power greater than yourself that will enable you to trust that everything will be ok.

The best piece of advice I can give to a person wanting to get sober is to ask for help right away and know that there people willing to help. I would tell them I know how much pain they are in and how scary it is but that there is a different way of life out there and a lot of help available. I would be more than willing to show anyone what I have done. I know how powerful my disease is and there were many times I said I wanted to get sober and tried, but almost instantly my disease wanted me to back out and run away from it that desire to get sober. That's how powerful it is, and I it was vital for me to jump on that moment of clarity I had and dive in full speed to recovery. The second rehab I went to, I was dying and so hopeless and seriously thought that I would die this way, but a tiny piece of me wanted help because I actually got on the plane to go. As soon as I got to detox, my disease and fear instantly turned into rage and threatening the staff and my father to get me out of there and I just want to get high "just one more time." My disease is always going to convince me it will be different, but that's so far from true. The only thing that will be different is that I am that much more sick and closer to death. It's a vicious cycle; so many attempts and more and more failure until death or suffering a long, miserable, alcoholic death.

You have to want to die before you can live! I would have rather died than go through the torture and hell of getting clean. Every battle wound you receive getting sober makes you stronger in your journey!

Jeca Read more

There is a mountain of evidence that you can get clean, stay clean and have a good life if you follow directions. You have a disease. You are not a bad person trying to get good. You are just a sick person trying to heal.

DO IT! Stay clean and sober with the help of others who have been there (and have been clean for a while). DO IT! For 90 days. Give it a chance and be willing to change. If you stay the same - the craving will stay the same and your circumstances will stay the same. DO IT! Come into the rooms and sit for a while. If it isn't your "kind of meeting" go to another one right away. Stick with it bravely and with willingness you will find all that you need to connect an HP that you have never known and a way of life you never could have imagined.

Focus on the things you want in your life. Sometimes we focus solely on the things we DONT want. At some point, its better to think about the life that you want, and the types of people you want in it. If getting high or drunk is causing problems in your life, its time to really examine what continuing down that road is going to create for you-- or take from you. I can say that life is real and beautiful without.

Go to meetings!!! Get a sponsor! Shut up and listen because you might think you know everything but obviously you know nothing about stopping & staying stopped. On a softer note I'd say don't leave before the miracle happens. You stick around long enough and it will.

The best thing to change in order to get clean is everything. Don't be in such a hurry either. Some things take a lot longer to mend than others. The easiest way to make amends to people is by showing them with actions, not words, your progress.

They have to truly want to get clean and mean it. If they are just doing it because of everyone else, it's not going to work. They have to be committed and follow through with it, each day.

It's a decision you have to want to make, and in the beginning it is not easy and you will sometimes want to just give up. But I assure you the hard work and effort is well worth it.

You are not alone, and there are so many in the recovery community who are willing to listen, support and guide you. Just speak up, and ask for help. With faith, hope, and love, anything is possible!

To have faith in the process and know that the struggles you experience early on are worth the fulfilling life that it leads to. Also, if you do decide to get clean, do it for yourself, it is the only way you can truly succeed.

Not using, is the hardest thing or the easiest thing you will ever do, just don't do it...helping someone else will help you ! (only you can prevent forest fires)
