Does it feel as if you have been living under a dark cloud for a long time? Do you see that alcohol, drugs, or some other addictive process is moving your life in the wrong direction, yet you seem unable to stop? Do you suspect that there is a better life you could be living?
Waiting for things to improve so you can quit an addiction is like waiting to get fit before taking up exercise.Waiting for the right time to quit is dangerous because the mind will always be able to come up with another reason to delay.
A balanced recovery is a strong recovery, and this is where we have a good mix of spiritual, physical, and mental activities in our life. A common mistake we make in recovery is to put all of our eggs into one basket. We become obsessed with exercise, work, or a new relationship and it leads to imbalance.
Our conscious mind is like the monkey who is giddy on power and constantly barking commands, but it is really our unconscious mind that determines our behavior. The reason why so many of us struggle to make positive changes in our life is because our monkey doesn’t have the cooperation of our elephant.
