Recovery, what does that really to me. I don’t have less of an urge to drink. I still pass certain things on the road that give me the desire to drink.
So, recovery means, to me, power, focus and desire to want a better life. Knowing the effects of alcohol will lead to being a shell of yourself and never living up to your full potential.
I want to make a better life for myself and my family. I want nothing more to see their smiling faces as I reach my next goal for my family. I want to be “present” with them when I’m home so I don’t miss the special moments of our lives together.
To recap, recovery is the desire and will to be the best you can be every day all day. Now, for various reasons you might not be that you all the time, but you have the ability unlike before when you were drunk.
I’m determined to have a great life and I know I can deliver every last dream my family might have.
