"Past failures, poor decisions and missed opportunities result in feeling unforgiving towards ourself and cynical about life. Drugs, alcohol or other problematic behaviors may have been a source of coping but we have realized that the problems are still there and sometimes get worse. Learn about your addiction and you will learn about yourself. Making changes in our life begins by recognizing that changes need to occur. Our old ways of coping are no longer effective. Working with the right therapist can help you learn and apply new and adaptive coping skills to identify and maintain a life worth living."
