Holistic Recovery Minute – Practice Complete Abstinence

Practice complete abstinence. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you can moderate your alcohol or drug intake. It won’t workout in the long run. Abstinence is the state of completely going  without a drug, such as alcohol or heroin, on which one is dependent. Abstinence is of great importance in recovery because a little bit is never enough when you are in addiction. When trying to moderate you will spiral down into the very patterns  you are trying to abandon.
