Default Real Change Requires Real Change

Real Change Requires Real Change - At one meeting, a young woman who was ten days abstinent stated that she dreaded the thought of relapse. Her last ten days had been 'super.' However, she was under constant pressure to drink because there is drinking at her job, her friends drink, and there is drinking at all social functions. She did not want to give any of these up. This young woman did not have her priorities in order. We who say that you must change 'people, places, and things' are not being sadistic. We are simply conveying the accumulated experience that, if you do not eliminate the factors that are conducive to drinking, your risk of relapse is great. We make sacrifices when we realize that life is at stake. If you are reluctant to make changes to avoid a relapse, it is only because you have not realized how lethal addiction is. We must learn to put first things first.
