The Disease of Addiction

When in active addiction people are in the grip of their disease. After the

disease of addiction hits a person it is too late to do anything about it and the
more people try to help them to quit the more the person will resist. However,
when in recovery people’s disease is arrested. The disease of addiction is a
progressive and fatal disease which there is no known cure for, but it can
however be arrested at some point and recovery is them possible.
In active addiction people have to do footwork to get their drugs. People in
active addiction do a lot of footwork. They have to find their drugs, come up
with the money to pay for them, or steal for them. I’ve seen many people that
would go to any lengths to get their drugs. However, in recovery people have
to do the footwork to take care of the wreckage of their past. In recovery
people have to be willing, open-minded, and willing to go to any lengths to
get recovery. The best way to think of this is, go for your recovery like you did
your addiction.
People need other people in active addiction to get their drugs for them and
teach them how to use them in different ways. People don’t just wake up one
morning and become addicts. Most people are taught in one way or another
how to use drugs and the longer a person uses, the more ways they learn how
to use them. On the other hand, people need help to learn how to work a good
strong program. A person in recovery usually needs a sponsor to help them to
work through the program of Narcotics Anonymous. Just as in active
addiction people need other people to teach them how to use in different
ways, in recovery people need other people who came in years before them to
teach them how to live life without the use of drugs.
People use drugs to numb themselves for one reason or another. They don’t
know how to live life on life’s terms, so they find an experienced member of
Narcotics Anonymous to help them along the way and show them that they
never have to use drugs again even if they want to. The results of each person
are very different no two people work the program exactly the same.
