I mean…is that even possible? Maybe not with our children, because I believe we do the best we can with what we have while raising them.
But as adults I have always felt that if we stick to our personal “checkpoints” as I call them- we could prevent allot of problems.
When I watch a movie, I’m always curious as to that “ʍօʍҽղԵ” when things changed to start the downward spiral either in the form of stealing, cheating, lieing & addiction.
My very favorite example of this is an old movie with Bridgette Fonda & Billy Bob Thornton. Good Lord, talk about normal people’s lives being thrown to the wolves! A Simple Plan
Hindsite being 20/20 aside-; If we religiously ( I use that word loosely but completely IN context here) have a self -monitoring system that we can use to pull ourselves back from a path that will only lead to disaster, I believe we could catch allot of issues.
This system might actually be a weekly worship, a nightly prayer, a daily journal writing, or a friend who holds us accountable as simply as in the form of a conversation once in a while to help us see how far fetched our thinking is getting – lol.

Recently I discovered a great list right on the government substance use disorder website thats listed in my GET HELP section on MY site

Many companies have put their spin on it but it’s basically an expanded version of Maslow’s hierchy of needs.
When looking at this, it’s easy to see how far off the circle IN ALL AREAS addicts find themselves, so it’s no wonder how overwhelming it must be to even begin.
Luckily some wonderful recovery professional made a simple recovery model- which I love.
I hope these resources can help us see how important it is to stay true to ourselves on all areas of life so we can be a healthy, emotionally strong beacon for those struggling. Not to mention to keep US out of danger of going off track for living our best lives ❣️✨❣️
