surrender...


𝗦𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿 is defined as 𝘨𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧 𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨. When we think about this term in the context of active addiction, it’s clear that #addiction forces us to surrender; when addiction is severe, we #surrender our thoughts, our actions, our relationships, our personal fulfillment, our dreams and our successes. ⁣

A common thought is that addiction “hijacks” the brain – forcing us to surrender. When substances become so entrenched in our daily lives and in our mind, body and spirit that we no longer have control over our use, we’re essentially surrendering ourselves. We don’t recognize it at the time, but we are.⁣

If you’re #struggling to surrender, I am here to tell you (for me) it was the hardest & best moment all at the same time. My next step was #death ⁣

You don’t have to get to the bottom before you stop. Sometimes sadly the “bottom” ends 6 feet under. ⁣

I hope you all have a #blessed Sunday, stay #sober my #sobertribe ⁣
