Resolve to Get Clean - There's Help

 

Last updated 1/10/2021 at 11:33am

As a New Year approaches a common theme is setting New Year's resolutions for yourself.

As an addict I can remember setting goals of trying to do better in life. The one I would tell everyone was that I would quit smoking cigarettes. In reality I was setting a resolution of being clean going into the New Year.

Year after year I failed at this, but deep down I wanted it to be true. I wanted a better life. I was tired of living day to day under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

I finally came to realize that I could not do it on my own. I needed to go to treatment, away from everything and everyone to focus on myself and deal with my past. I learned to live in the present.

I can now go into this year with a whole different outlook on New Year's resolutions. I no longer have to stop attempting to get clean alone, I am clean! For those out there struggling, reach out for help! Start off the New Year in a program getting the tools you need to start each year clean and sober!
