    The recovery path varies from person to person. While one person may be a regular 12 step meeting kind of recovery person, another may attend church, read books, or attend counseling to help them refrain from drinking or drugging....

    What does your recovery path look like? What helps you stay sober?

    You have been a big help since I've joined as have other's i often tag probably annoying many but i do it at times when i feel i don't have enough to offer as i truly care.But aside from that i run alot.Im typeing this at 1 a.m. because my head is torturing me after my conversation with wife yesterday so even though i can barely walk due to upcoming knee surgery at 11:30pm i ran 3.73 miles and now im going to be stuck in bed for atleast 2 day's unless my head forces me back to the gym.Many say go see a Dr for your head and to them i say NEVER AGAIN..God bless and take care

    My family. I grew up with an alcoholic father, and I know what kind of pain and suffering his addiction put us through. I don't ever want to inflict that kind of hurt on the people I love.

    I don't want my son growing up with a mother in active addiction.

    I'm glad you feel that way, @Paigesmith041. Use that for motivation, my friend.
