Here are few addiction and recovery quotes that have caught my eye recently. Some wise words and poignant reflections that are worth savouring.
I used to think a drug addict was someone who lived on the far edges of society. Wild-eyed, shaven-headed and living in a filthy squat. That was until I became one…
Every habit he’s ever had is still there in his body, lying dormant like flowers in the desert. Given the right conditions, all his old addictions would burst into full and luxuriant bloom.
Addiction is a relationship, a pathological relationship in which… obsession replaces people.

The further I get into recovery, the less I know.
I think we need to educate our doctors about addiction.
Not why the addiction, but why the pain.
You are in recovery if you say you are.
Recovery is contagious. Get close to it. Stay close to it. Catch it. Keep catching it. Pass it on.
