    The very first rule of recovery is that you don’t recover from an addiction by stopping to use it. You recover by creating a new life where it is easier to not use. If you don’t create a new life, then all the factors that brought you to your addiction will eventually catch up with you again.

    You don’t have to change everything in your life. But there are a few things and behaviors that have been getting you into trouble, and they will continue to get you into trouble until you let them go. The more you try to hold onto your old life in recovery, the less well you will do.

    Here are the three most common things that people need to change in order to achieve recovery.These are Hunger,Anger,tiredness and loneliness.
