Some people think that recovery is not possible when someone has an alcohol or other drug problem. I don't believe this. In fact I'm inspired every day by people who work hard at overcoming these problems and go on to live a healthy life. There are definitely stops and starts along the way don't get me wrong. Slipping up and using again is part of the recovery story, that's what people need to understand and accept. I've never known anyone to go from drinking coffee or eating chocolate to never doing that again. It's no different with alcohol and other drugs. Because change takes time and each time there is a slip up then great lessons can be learned about what not to do next time and how to stay safe. Tash Sultana is someone who inspires me and helps me remember that recovery from drugs is possible.
