April is Alcohol Awareness Month, but are you Aware that addiction begins with pain—and ends in even more pain?

Are you Aware of where your pain originated? Are you willing to work at relieving the pain in a healthy way?

As a recovering codependent, I have to remind myself of the Three — wait make that the Four “C’s”. . . I didn’t Cause it. I can’t Contol it. I can’t Cure it. But by working my 12-Step Recovery Program I can Change it, and that “it” is Me!

Feel the pain.

Catch your breath, then join a recovery program and take to first step to Healing your pain.
