Thought For The Day

Quote #1

“Relapse starts long before the drug is put into your body. So when your friends and loved ones recognize you are in relapse mode and call you out on it, don’t get mad. Be grateful they cared enough to notice.” (Unknown)

Quote #2

“Relapse is often a part of one’s recovery. Don’t beat yourself up about it. What matters is whether you let your relapse destroy you or strengthen you to remain in recovery despite them.” (Unknown)

Quote #3

“A chat with the grim reaper should be enough to scare away any thought of relapse. Wish it were that easy, but not even days conversing with death can disintegrate the claws of addiction.” (Ellen Hopkins)

Bonus Quote

“The most important thing is to help the person understand why the relapse happened, and instead of punishing and shaming them, encourage them to reflect and grow.” (Dr. Adi Jaffe) 

Peace, love, light, and joy,
