Encouraging quotes that see me through...

I would wish addiction's experiences on no one, yet its perspective on everyone.

I'm a quote guy. I read them and write them down to ponder later. Sometimes I come up with my own entirely. Other times I tweak someone else's (like the one above). Go ahead and share your own. Sixty days today, if I did the math right.

one that has seen me through many difficult times 'this too will pass' or 'this will also change' 'treat others, as you would like yourself be treated' or just be kind, relax.

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind always.

Leave your front door and your back door open. Allow your thoughts to come and go. Just don't serve them tea.

And I love the Suziki quote.

I think Dee's simple wisdom sums up most relapses, certainly mine.
