Sample text

Sid Farrar, my editor at Hazelden, sensed that I was having trouble and asked me if I needed help. “Yes,” I responded, feeling both relieved and embarrassed. You see, even after all this time, it’s hard for me to ask for what I need and let someone else see that I need help. Sid was able to arrange for writer-editor Vince Hyman to help me develop the early drafts of this book, and I was immediately heartened. Vince had worked with me on 12 Smart Things to Do When the Booze and Drugs Are Gone. He gets my work; he understands how I think and the message I am trying to convey.

We stand for ourselves but not against anyone. We’re clear about who we are and what we want, but we’re not rigid. We change with time and circumstance. We strive to be compassionate and honest. We cooperate with those we love but don’t lose ourselves in the connection. If the path we’re on is right for us, it creates exhilaration and excitement, and fosters a positive attitude toward ourselves, others, and the world in which we live. It encourages feelings of love, contentment, joy, and creativity.

No one among us has been able to completely avoid falling off the path or getting lost during our trek. We are humans and therefore will make mistakes and poor decisions. The important thing is that we pick ourselves back up when we have fallen, find our way back when we are lost, and get on with the business of learning from our mistakes. This is the essence of real long-term recovery. It’s about learning, and learning is about discovering new possibilities. You’ll learn about these twelve more pitfalls in the following twelve chapters.
