A priceless definition of abstinence, by a former patient (shared with permission). All of us at SCH strive for this each and every day.
“Abstinence means waking up every day and dedicating myself to recovery.
Taking care of my body, mind and soul.
For my body, abstinence is avoiding toxic substances and eating nutritious foods to feel my body in a healthy way.
For my mind, abstinence means actively censoring my thoughts and effectively using my coping skills to manage stress and relieve anxiety.
For my soul, abstinence means truly being happy means that I make decisions that are consistent with my morals and values and take full responsibility for my choices.
That’s a very abundant definition of abstinence and not a definition I would in any way, shape or form associate with deprivation.”
