Self Help Methods for Addiction is not something I really believe in, sorry but I have to be honest here.
How many times have you already tried to stop drinking or drugging? Were you successful? Most likely not.
We speak about being in recovery and being a “dry drunk”. The difference between these two is that being in recovery means we are clean and working a program of recovery. Being a Dry Drunk is just abstaining from using. The character traits of being in active addiction are still there and very much causing problems in our lives!
Recovery = Being Clean + Higher Power + Working Program
