    Fighting cravings and feel like giving up?

    “The moment when you want to quit is the moment when you need to keep pushing.”
    - unknown.

    A habit is only a habit until you can observe it. And then it's a choice.

    No excuses once you notice you have a problem. Deal with it.

    Sometimes there is no next time, no timeouts, and no second chances. Sometimes it’s now or never.

    “Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.” ~ Wayne Dyer

    There is no chance, no fate, no destiny that can circumvent, or hinder, or control a firm resolve of a determined soul.

    “If we stay where we are, where we're stuck, where we're comfortable and safe, we die there. We become like mushrooms, living in the dark, with poop up to our chins. If you want to know only what you already know, you're dying. You're saying: Leave me alone; I don't mind this little rathole. It's warm and dry. Really, it's fine.

    "When nothing new can get in, that's death. When oxygen can't find a way in, you die. But new is scary, and new can be disappointing, and confusing--we had this all figured out, and now we don't.

    "New is life.”

    Your breakthrough can come after decades of nothin'.

    You can be fighting something for twenty years without progress, and then suddenly one day, you hear a saying or have an experience or simply wake up one day and the struggle is gone, with you victorious. I've seen it in my own life and others' life. Addiction is not the last word!

    As long as there is one upright man, as long as there is one compassionate woman, the contagion may spread and the scene is not desolate. Hope is the one thing left to us in a bad time.

    Really like this one, not only from a recovery from addiction standpoint but just as a good message for life in general. If we aren't learning and growing as people then life gets kinda dull, boring and lonely!

    Do not allow anything to be an obstacle, see everything as a stepping stone to victory.

    There are always ten better things to do than to give up.

    Today everything is possible... Yesterday is gone.

    All the best!
