Those living in active addiction often blame someone else for their affliction. Instead of taking responsibility for one’s actions, addicts will often play the victim card and accuse the rest of the world for abandoning them and blame others for using drugs. However, those in recovery soon begin to learn that recovery is a lot more than stopping all drug use. It’s about reinventing one’s self. It’s about taking control of your life rather than allowing addiction to make poor lifestyle choices. It’s about being accountable for your feelings, your actions and your happiness.
The Publisher of Kill the Heroin Epidemic Nationwide™ recently posted content on the heroin addiction & recovery discussion forum about taking control and true happiness. See “Taking Control of Your Own Happiness” for more information. He also published a video related to the role of responsibility and accountability in recovery. Click here to view it.
Living in active addiction is about being controlled whereas living in active recovery is about taking control. You have the power inside of you to stop using and choose recovery. But you have to want it. You have to be tired of letting addiction make you miserable when you have direct control over your own happiness. You have to become accountable and responsible for your actions and take a stand against addiction and for health and wellness. Those in active recovery know that the only way to beat addiction is to stay in control and practice responsibility and accountability on a daily basis.
