First Things First

Silverado

intervention silveradoYears ago, when I first hit bottom and ended up in a substance abuse center, I learned that I was allergic to drugs.

I was told I suffered from a disease that had no cure but that it could be arrested and that recovery was possible.

My substance abuse counselor was a recovering addict who had sixteen years clean.

He explained that the very first thing that I needed to do if I wanted lasting recovery was to accept that I could not use drugs successfully.

It has been difficult for me to accept this.

I have always had a reservation.

This reservation has taken me out several times.

Today I’m working on first things first.
