How can I get clean?

I was so distraught all I could do was drink, use and hide. This went on for a few months, I was living in two rooms of my large house the bedroom and the kitchen. I only left to get beer or pills. I was a prisoner in my home and I hated what I had become. call for help 949-292-2000 or text 949-324-3162 http://get.wirecovery.com/2015/02/how-can-i-get-clean-orange-county.html

Alcoholic’s have lost the dubious pleasure of being angry
In meditation samadhi. Staying above the manusha is my Divine flow moment by moment, the worldly becomes ever less important. My dear friends let our thoughts be unconfused by stressing of politics or the war du jour. Know this …. I am, you are, god is, all there is.

5 Question to ask when picking a Drug Rehab Center

5 Questions to Ask When Picking a Drug Rehab. I just read a story full of $25 dollar words explaining what the “right treatment” center must offer to be the one you should pick.      Well, I went to the most basic sober living house ran by a guy with less than a year sober himself. The house had several Harley’s in the garage, where I kept my $13 worth of ST Vincent De Paul’s wardrobe on a pool cover with a sheet.  A few people in the sober living pitched into a collection to get me some clothes, because I had only the one outfit I was wearing when I got arrested.        We went to 2 meeting a day. We had No therapist, just a nightly house meeting.  I wanted treatment and more answers so I read the Big Book and worked with my sponcer.        I was coming off of alcohol and a 16 year IV heroin habit.  Later on in my 1st year of sobriety I got myself into community college to study alcohol and drug treatment classes. I made that into my treatment program.  I have 24 years clean.  We just had a 25 year reunion of that sober living group. 19 of us showed up sober, and we received messages from so many more of us who are still in the program who did not attend the reunion.          I love treatment centers, my work is in treatment, and I deeply believe in therapy. I don’t think it is that big of a deal where you go for help.  The important thing is to get out of your home area, away from your friends & family and get help.  I have been talking to families on hot lines for over 20 years.         I feel so sorry for the people calling all over internet looking for the best, most perfect treatment center.       In my opinion, “Don’t spend all of your money.”  Quantity is more important than perceived quality” Go where you can comfortable afford the program with the intention of staying in a structured  setting for as long as you can.         I stayed in sober living for 2 & a half years. I still go to meetings regularly.  I have a successful full life & a good marriage.

Wreckage of the Past.  The program teaches that all power is in the Here & Now.No matter how much we worry about the past it doesn’t get any better.As a person passes from loaded to clean memories are not exactly crisp & clear. The people you were high with usually feel anger, hurt, or co-dependent attachment.  The citizens you were dealing with in your  active addiction tend to have clearer recall of  how you act went.  They may be full of thoughts that feature the worst of the worst. Here in lies the rub.  These issues often continues long into our recovery time.   Wreckage of the past.When you first start recovery it rushes at you hard and heavy.  Addicts often owebills in all directions. People are angry & hurt by the actions of active addiction.There’s trouble with the law, or trouble at work, or trouble with no job.  Maybe you can’t live at home with the family, or you are with the family and they aren’t crazy about you being there. It takes a lot of good concentration to get through each day of life.  When you try to lead you life under the influence, it comes to pass that here and there you are in a semi comma, black out, or just missed the mark on how high you meant to get.  That’s when the body and some exaggerated emotions walk around signing you up for stuff to be involved with that your organized self may not have elected to do. Even after you get sober it takes some time for the brain chemistry to repair to the point where the soul can take back over of the decision making process. Mind and body are tools of the soul.  Mind and body are temporary, the soul is the eternal.  The mind can flood with emotions, post traumatic stress, feelings of loneliness, anger, fear, co-dependency and is convinced that the past dictates the future.                    The body craves, knows addiction, lust, and the hunger.  When you have an internal conversation Feeler #1  “Should I just tell a little lie to get my way to prevail in this situation?           No one will even know” Feeler #2  “You said you were going to stop lying. Stop breaking promises to yourself”   Which feeler is your true self? Feeler #1 the one that sees all of the loop holes.            Or Feeler #2 the one that lines up with what you have been deciding? Do you believe your ‘high powered self’ is the one who justifies so that you can stay sane even in the face of your desires?Or …….Do you believe your ‘higher powered self’ is the one that pulls you in the positive direction and reminds you of you commitments to your newly found values?      Who you are.  Your Highest self is the one listening to the conversation.Living in the Here and Now Just the way that it is, and just the way that it is not.One women’s story.  Still dealing with the ‘wreckage of the past’ with over twenty years into recovery.    This gal has wonderful long term clean and sober time.  Her life has become a blissful  adventure of peace as a witness.  She appears to have actually declared peace on everybody and everything. This mind set moved in and replaced the constant feelings of confusion,  and an overpowering need to judge and control in the midst of chaotic whims in reaction to conditions.  Her past self had three speeds overkill, slough, and unavailable.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Addicts-Do-Recovery/265130883530881Dedicated to Mario SotoA fine young man in recovery changing his life.  It’s an honor and a privilege to observe him living as sober productive member of society. His focus is positive and inspired.  http://lagunaniguel.patch.com/users/loriann-witte-cac. 949-292-2000

Getting sober and staying sober is much more about changing your life than it is about having will power.

My recovery ministry loves MLK

Martin Luther King was a man of charity & peace. I urge you to look at this day off as a chance to give back. I ask, what have you done to be the voice for the oppressed, to see that human rights as well as civil rights are fair & equal to all, to be of service to your fellow humans? Be the voice to speak out in love. Bless MLk & his courage & all he did, may we have more people like him in our world.   I love Martin Luther King Jr. I all ways keep a picture of him on my wall & one on the walls of our recovery houses. His life is proof we can change our world, by changing our thoughts we change our experience. I am so blessed to have seen what I have seen in my life. As a kid living on Army bases in the South in the late 60’s and 70’s I experienced racism up close & personally. Now to see Obama be President.  In honor of MLK, I am doing my regular job. In my recovery ministry I talk to people everyday to let them know. Addict’s do recovery. http://www.wirecovery.com/sitepage.php?pageid=43
