I found out that getting and maintaining sobriety is a skill that I can learn. That's why I stick with what works for me. SMART Recovery has a host of tools (skills) that have taught me how to be the agent of change rather some external force or whatever the other recovery camp uses to get the same results I get. Its I do the work, I get the results...and so far the results of having a empowering personalized addiction treatment plan have been lifesaving as well as personally very rewarding.

The mindset that has helped me the most is one of; patience, persistence and perseverance. Its a mindset that helped from being a bottom dwelling hopelessness chronic alcoholic/drug addict into a functioning member of the human race.
