Mary loves her three year old son, Adam, more than anything in the World. Her Court Order says that if Mary relapses, she will lose all visitation of Adam until she can prove that she is clean for one year. She successfully completes 30 days of inpatient. She successfully completes Aftercare. She has been sober for 90 days, and she is certain that her love for her three year old son will keep her sober. She cuts back on meetings to spend more time with him. She cuts back on calling her Sponsor. She runs into an old using buddy after a bad day at work. A bag appears. That old voice inside her head tells her, "Just one." A few hours later, she overdoses and dies.
Remember you can't stay sober just by remembering what will happen if you relapse. Your love even for your own child will not keep you clean and sober. You must daily nurture a spiritual, intellectual and personality overhaul. The latest research shows that active participation in 12 step programs helps. Good for you for using this App right now!
