I Am Your Recovery Coach

Arlene J. Sherman

“Dear Addicted Friend:

You flirt with death, but you want to live. You are afraid to keep using, but you are afraid to stop. You may not know what life is without drugs, but you might be willing to try. You fool yourself into thinking recovery is unattainable for you, but maybe you’re wrong. Maybe you think you know everything about recovery. Chances are, you are unaware to some degree even if you have been in recovery and relapsed several times. And while a lasting recovery is attainable, truth is, it can be tricky.”
