Life on life's terms.

Once you get clean off all drugs, how are you going to live your life?

Just because you sober up and decided to leave the drugs and alcohol alone does not mean that your life is going to get any better. Honestly it could just stay the same.

It’s really in how you want your life to be, it is up to you.

You can decided that your life is as miserable without drugs as it was with drugs and give up and keep living that way


You could decide that your life WAS miserable with drugs and you refuse to let it be anything but happy without drugs.

Life is all in how you look at it. Living life on life’s terms is something every addict must learn. I am still learning this and sometimes even have a difficult time remembering all that I have learnt.

Life happens, that will not change. What will change are your attitude, your willingness, and your openness to face each situation.

Is it easy? By no means what so ever! But it is worth it.

My life has been way better than I ever imagined it could be. The friends and family relationships that I have now are more than I have ever had.

Just for today I am not trading that in for more drugs!


  1. Very wise post and I am glad I read this tonight. Thank You.

    There were times when Alex was using I would dream and imagine what it would be like if he stopped using. I am so glad that dreams are not true. The reality of him not using is so much more that I ever dreamt or imagined.

  2. Thanks Ron. So happy you for your family! It is great to see other people come out on the good side of this addiction!
