Agreed and the above illustrates some aspects of why it is not necessarily easy, in fact can be very difficult, any yet the decision is possible to everyone.
I believe the perception of the difficulty is reinforced from exposure to those who 'know' how to state, use the pop culture lingo in such a away as to shield from view the fact that don't actually want to quit and continue to use the safe haven recoveryism provides them.
Regardless , one can really ever 'know' their 'own truth' , my BP , my pledge is unbreakable to me, and I'll never be really able to 'prove' it, yeah ?
