I have had many clients tell me their vices are too strong for them. They report having no hope of recovery. Please listen to me and listen carefully.
YOU ARE NEVER STUCK. YOU CAN ALWAYS CHANGE. NO EXCEPTIONS.
You are never too far gone. You have never made too many mistakes. Your life can always get better. There are many things that are hard to change but if you are determined to find a solution it is there.
If you are not sure where to start, please read my article on 7 steps to change a habit for "how to" steps to move forward. http://www.revitalizecounselingservices.com/2012/07/steps-to-change-habit.html
Often times lack of hope is what prevents people from moving forward. Hope is a powerful way to change behavior. People do drastic things on hope alone but without it people can loose their will to live.
If hope is something you struggle to find, look for a person with this core value that can encourage you and remind you how strong you really are. We are as strong as we decide to be.
