Addiction respects no ifs. It does not go away, not for a week, for a day, or even for an hour, leaving us non addicted and able to drink/drug/gamble/act out again on some special occasion or for some extraordinary reason — not even if it is a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, or if a big sorrow hits us, or if it rains in Spain or the stars fell on Alabama.
Addiction is for us unconditional, with no dispensation available at any price. Therefore recovery from Addiction must also be unconditional. We just don’t succumb to it… no matter what!
Thought to Ponder . . .
Addiction — cunning, baffling, powerful!
