So What Now?

Now that you’ve had enough, what’s next? Every journey starts with the first step. Detoxing is not easy, you have to flush this crap out of your system. I switched my diet to a vegan diet. For example I juiced for nine days three times a day and drank plenty of water. You need to make sure you have a place where you can rest. Reach out to family and friends. Let them know you want to quit and are really dedicated this time. I’m sure they’ve heard this before, Right!? So what now? You’re going to have to prove to them and most importantly to yourself that you’re ready for this change. You had to learn how to use. It didn’t just happen over night. You’re going to have to learn how to stop.

Flushing your system

Flushing your system will help with the cravings and start repairing at a cellular level. I did all this while living out of my car. You programmed your brain to these chemicals, behaviours, and emotions. Now you have to reprogram it again. Delete the number of anyone who sales and still uses. You need to start hanging around people who don’t use. This is the perfect time to get into something you’ve always wanted to do. Find a new hobby that doesn’t require any gear to purchase and you can do for free. I started meditating twice a day. In the morning when I got up and at night before I went to sleep. Start by visualising the new you and there’s no better way than with meditation.

AA or NA

A.A. or N.A. facilities are great places to meet people who have plenty of clean time. If you use this option make sure you don’t hangout with anyone who’s only got a few days and is always in and out because this can get you to slip and use. Not everyone in these places has your best interest in mind. Some of you might not have any money and resources might be limited depending on where you live. Regardless it is still possible to make the change, we do recover, you have to chase your recovery like you were chasing your addiction. There are many paths to the same destination. So what now? You have to find the one that works best for you. If AA and NA is not for you, you might want to consider a spiritual coach for recovery.
