I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE 3 YEARS SOBER
~ a QS graduate
Our online programme is three years long, and weaves it's way first through the chronic substance addiction that you joined for, and then becomes far more subtle. We go underneath the substance to its origin; why you began using in the first place, and the behaviours and beliefs that are driving the addiction forwards. .
In years two and three the course becomes a 'school of life', hardly even mentioning addiction as we traverse ever deeper within, asking ourselves the profound question: 'WHO AM I?'
The answer will change your life
It has to
And the addict is lucky to have this opportunity, because their situation has become so chronic, to travel along this path and get these gems of answers...
"I LOVE THIS!
I LOVE YOU!
I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE 3 YEARS SOBER.
I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE A RELATIONSHIP I DIDN’T NEED TO WORK FOR.
I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE PICKING AND CHOOSING MY WORK LIKE I AM NOW.
EVERYTHING IS SO DIFFERENT!

you can half write amazing,
hope giving, inspiring stuff ✨"
How? I don't understand. How has it been 23 years? It hurts. Down to my bones. It is still so new, so fresh in my mind. My heart bleeds it hurts so much. The pain is so raw. The time that was stolen from us. The memories we will never share. The son in law and grandchildren you will never meet. Never know. School trips, vacations, birthdays, weddings... all the things you never got to be a part of nor will you ever again.
It hurts. Do you have any idea the pain that was caused by one extremely selfish act? Don't get me wrong, I love you Daddy. I do. I always will. But I can still be angry with you. I understand mental illness, but that doesn't make it hurt any less. But why did you have to steal her too? Do you understand the life long pain and struggles you caused? It hurts so much! When my babies ask me where MY mama and daddy are... what am I supposed to say to them?
Jesus, please give me peace that passes all understanding today. Please give me strength on this horrible day. I hate this day every year, and now it's also tainted by the loss of another child, it's been a year since that as well. It hurts SO much. I hope they are with you, I can't bare the thought of the alternative. And I think that is the hardest part of this all, I don't know without a doubt that they were believers. Thank you that Cody is here, with me and we can be together on this day. Give him peace and strength today as well. I love them, I miss them... please fill me with your love, peace and strength today.

When I drank and used I sacrificed a lot. I went to bad neighborhoods to get drugs, I stole money, I sold things etc. I went as far as putting my life in jeopardy. Many addicts and alcoholics have done things that they probably would not do under normal circumstances to satisfy their craving or addiction. If you want to get sober and live, put as much effort in to getting as you did when you used. Your life depends on it. If you make sobriety your priority as you did drugs and or alcohol, you will see the results and feel much better about yourself. Don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself.
Many people with mental health issues use drugs as a coping mechanism. It isn't until completely destroying themselves do they realise they're underlying mental health issues have brought them to be where they are. By this time their substance abuse has usually caused more mental and physical health issues. For the lucky few who do manage to escape the grasp of substance abuse, the realisation that you didn't willingly or purposely do this to yourself can be an overwhelming sense of relief.... But it can also be scary. Suddenly they hear all these words like anxiety, psychosis, depression, dissociative and bi-polar.
The feeling they should understand everything that is happening and what it all means can be a lot, especially whilst trying to stay 'sane' and in recovery.
Not to mention trying not to self destruct in the meantime.
Mental health is hard, it can be confusing, emotional and scary.
But know you are not alone!! ________________________________________________
