Exhortations for Recovery

​Addiction lowers our consciousness and cuts us off from the source of ALL creativity. By disconnecting via mind-altering substances and other temporary distractions we attempt to avoid moving forward in life. 

F*ck Everything And Run

Fear of our ability to achieve our goals keeps us STUCK! We get frozen in time. We become like a deer in the headlights. We are miserable and unhappy because we are committing an unnatural act by not fulfilling our destiny. All major religions speak of sin. Some would say that the biggest sin of all is not fulfilling your God-given purpose. 

What are you waiting for?

Don’t let fear keep you from reaching your potential. You deserve better, your family deserves better, and most of all, your GOD deserves the best you’ve got. 🙂

  1. Addiction supplies the fuel for the default zombie mind that refuse to let the higher brain function speak up. Keeps it recycling in the mire, questioning esteem, downgrading ones own confidence and sending it back out for more of the addiction to justify that cyclic thinking. Cutting the fuel allows the higher brain function to wake up and start challenging the default reasoning. It can be painful to wake up to that and send one crashing back into thoughts of wasted time and negativity. That path is the one you eloquently phrased above…fear of achieving and expectation of failing. Why bother, stay as we are….

    Now what would higher brain function say to that given half a chance and a decent run away from the addictions?

    Good post Abbie

  2. Hey, Abbie! This is amazing – and probably it’s not a brand new concept to others. But I’ve felt this way for a long time – especially regarding maturity. As an ACOA, my mind has tried and tried to understand what was wrong in our dysfunctional family, insulated from all the other “normal” families… and recently, now years removed from that pain, I began again postulating that those stuck in addiction never grow up – they abdicate their maturity for the latest fix. Question is… am I doing that too, with substances that are more ‘acceptable’ – food or temporal distractions – so that I don’t have to face what is on my plate right now?

    • Hey, thanks for the comment! As far as “other” addictions, I’LL tell you what an addiction counselor said: “If it’s not a problem, it’s not a problem.”
      You know if something is doing you harm. If not, ask someone close to you. 🙂


  3. I’ve been sober for a long time but still consider myself “delusional ” in that my personal agenda for happiness rarely seems to line up with true happiness. It’s that very struggle that generates all my fear and blocks me from the peace and joy I’m seeking.
