Loosid Sober Tip of The Day

You can turn a cucumber into a pickle, but you can’t turn a pickle back into a cucumber.

In recovery, we often use this term to explain that, once an alcoholic or addict, always and alcoholic or addict.

This great obsession of alcoholics and addicts is to think one day we can drink or use again in moderation.

To combat this ‘stinking thinking’, many of us admit our powerlessness over the drink or drug in our daily practice.

This allows us to withdraw from the debating society in order that we don’t waste energy on things we cannot change.

Remember, alcoholism and addiction is 100% treatable.

For this reason, many of us find ourselves beyond grateful for having a disease which we can put in remission on a daily basis provided we work a spiritual program.

Today, choose to accept being a pickle today. Life is too short to spend it trying to turn back into a cucumber.
