The program which helped me to free from addiction

User Profile
HI all!

For many years, I and my family were suffering from my addiction. I was an alcoholic and did not hear anyone when was drunk. Hopefully, my wife helped me to start a new life and recovery. I was not a religious man, so 12 step programs did not fit me. That is why we chose LifeRing Secular Recovery program. The main idea is that everyone has “Sober Self” and “Addict Self.” After realizing these two and picking the Sober Self, an addict gradually become stronger and can fight back his desire to drink more and more. You can read about it and other similar programs on AddictionResource and choose the best fit.

Now, I'm happy that my Sober Self won over Addict Self. I freed of the addiction chains and can breathe chestful.
