One Day at a Time
True addiction recovery lies in the ability to deal with root issues, not simply medicate the symptoms of them."

A fresh supply of new feelings is yours for the taking!

Recovery Poems by Dean
Dean B writes recovery poems and songs, here are a few of his poems:
by Dean B c.2000
Just beneath the surface of her pleasant, winning smile,
Pompous and indignant, it's been there quit a while,
Comforting, reliable, it keeps her in the dark,
At least a million reasons and subtle quirks remark:
"Sure it makes a lot of sense!" she'll deal with it tomorrow,
Sadly now the curtain falls, why does this seem to sorrow,
A chapter ends, a twist of fate, what could be the purpose,
For most of us the painful truth, lies just beneath the surface
by Dean c.1999
The addict is a special case,

Late one night, some years ago,
Recovery came in spurts and bites,
On habits past, now shone new lights.
For all alone, too big a task,
A daily chore, for help to ask.
A friendly voice came through the air,
O sponsor dear, can this be fair,
To give up all, how can I trust?
The fearís too great, I feel I must,
Begin somewhere, perhaps today,
To trudge the path another way,
Pray read a thought or think to pray,
And meditate, though day by day,
To any lengths, Iím not so sure,
Through all the tears, is there a cure?
And then one day, in Godís sweet time,
I asked for help and help was mine!
That heavy cross that once I bore,
Has lightened now, a lesser chore.
Iíve learned to trust in tried and true,
Iíve learned to trust the good in you.
Iíve shared my pain, my hopes and dreams
And given up those selfish schemes
Of grander plans and thoughts verbose.
I raise my glass and drink a toast;
ďA dozen Steps!Ē that line by line,
Most surely say, ďHis WillĒ, donít whine
For better things are sure to come,
Lifeís rythym now, a calmer drum,
Those fragile thoughts are overcome,
The strugglesí past, ďThy will be done.Ē
And still today, in Godís sweet time,
I ask for help and help is mine.
by Dean B c.1998
Give up the Sugar, who me.
Well, a sweet tooth
Runs down... my family tree!
But, one bite of sugar means ten!
So giving it up sure makes sense!
It all boils down to how much I want it,
My recovery tastes better,
I better not taunt it! ....
