Rewards of Recovery

I read these 12 Rewards of Recovery in The Daily Ponderables (online recovery material) and I could really relate to how my life has changed for the better since being sober.  I have Hope, Faith and Courage, among other things and I kinda like myself these days.   A lot has changed for me in the last several years.     Whether you are in recovery or not, I hope you too have these rewards in your life.  


12 Rewards of Recovery

This is what I get in return when I live the program:

1. Hope instead of desperation.

2. Faith instead of despair.

3. Courage instead of fear.

4. Peace of mind instead of confusion.

5. Self-respect instead of self-contempt.

6. Self-confidence instead of helplessness.

7. The respect of others instead of their pity and contempt.

8. A clean conscience instead of a sense of guilt.

9. Real friendship instead of loneliness.

10. A clean pattern of life instead of a purposeless existence.

11. The love and understanding of our families instead of their doubts and fears.

12. The freedom of a happy life instead of the bondage of Addiction.
