Help

Step :1    Commit to making a change.

If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, you need to realize that changes in all aspects of your life are required.   You will have to take a good look at the people you associate with.  What you do with your free time.  Look at the way you deal with negativity or stressful situations.

2.  Explore every treatment option available

Not all treatment programs work for everyone.  Find a treatment center that deals with more than addiction, leave it up to the professionals to decide whether you have outside issues such as depression that link to your addiction.  You want a facility that will be able to aid you in all aspects of your suffering.

Call 1-800-662-HELP to reach a free referral helpline from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

3. Reach out to all possible support. 

Search for positive influences in your life.  People that will be by your side.  Going through recovery with a solid support system will increase your chances at leading a clean life.

4. People Places and Things

Avoid anything that reminds you of your addiction.  Steer clear of people that you associate with your addiction, places that remind you of using and things that trigger cravings.

5.  Concentrate on building  a meaningful life.

Make your overall health your number one priority.  Take care of your body, respect it and try to make up for the damage you did to it.  You only get one, treat it better than any item you posses.  Find new healthy hobbies that intrigue you.  Set goals that are meaningful to you.  And my last piece of advice is to be proud that you’re clean.
