Addiction is merciless and it will stop at nothing to take everything you have away, bit by bit. As dramatic as this may sound, it is the absolute truth. The validity of this statement comes in the hands of people that have been addicted to a substance or a behavior. Very rarely do you see someone who has steered clear of being badly mangled by the addiction and its consequences. Instances of ramifications are different for everyone. Some people may lose everything from their house to their job, while other people will keep their material items and lose their significance.
Being robbed by an addiction is common and can take a course of action to regain back what was jacked from you. Attaining the material possessions may seem most important to you, but focusing on the things that reclaim a sense of security in your recovery life should be considered first.
What You Will Regain in Recovery
Your self-respect will come back slowly but surely in recovery. Working on yourself in different areas of recovery can lead you to increase your confidence level. Dignity is typically lost in the mix of addiction, but can be acquired back on the side of sobriety.
Functioning Member of Society
In the depths of addiction, you were probably more concerned about being addicted above anything else. Addiction is debilitating and causes the functionality of the brain to suffer. This makes many addicts lash out and do things they would not normally do under the influence. Recovery promotes a positive emotional shift which can lead you to contribute to society in a more appropriate fashion.
If you are working on yourself through recovery means, then you will have the capability to build healthier relationships. You may have burned some bridges that can possibly be repaired by the changes you are making. Finding mentors and friends in recovery can be a great asset to show you how to improve existing relations in your life.
Everything that you will regain in recovery depends on the work you put into it. Recovery must be your number one priority because when you put it first, everything else will come to order. Engaging the practices of recovery can help regain a newfound perception of self-worth which in return will help you gain other gifts of recovery,
