When #Joy is Hard to Find
Read More: http://cleanslaterecovery.com/11/06/2013/joy-hard-find/

In the realm of the science of the mind, this is called anhedonia. Anhedonia comes from two Greek word parts meaning “without” and “pleasure.” This is a painfully true description. For meth users, anhedonia may originate in deep molecular changes in the brain, particular in the areas related to feeling and pleasure. #drugabuse

Travel Tips for the #Sober Adventurer
Read More: http://cleanslaterecovery.com/10/30/2013/travel-tips-sober-adventurer/

When first sober, the routine of being near home and a #safety net of trustworthy friends and family can be quite a #comfort. Eventually it will be time to try traveling sober. Whether in a group, with friends or with family, some people have a very real fear that #traveling can cause a #relapse. By preparing appropriately for travel there is nothing stopping one from making lasting memories and living life to its fullest adventure.

Meetings make for solid #recovery
Read More: http://cleanslaterecovery.com/10/23/2013/meetings-make-forsolid-sobriety/

Meetings often address the issues that led to #addiction and offer a variety of literature for deeper reflection. Time attending the meeting may be spent studying a specific theme and sharing is generally #encouraged. Many people use share time to express frustrations or #epiphanies they have had. Contribution to a group in this manner has been known to provoke thought and effectively #influence others in a #positive way.

Managing Disruptive #Behaviors #Triggered by #Addition
Read More: http://cleanslaterecovery.com/10/16/2013/self-sabotage/

Cultivating #mindfulness is a daily #practice for many people in #recovery. Part of mindfulness is the monitoring of internal self-talk, keeping exposure to #toxic people to a minimum and beginning to accept change as #progressive rather than seeing it as undesirable.

#Krokodil a Devastating Drug
Read More: http://cleanslaterecovery.com/10/09/2013/krokodil-devastating-drug/

It is important to create #awareness for drugs like krokodil in the hopes that a little bit of #education will make people think twice about this substance. Parents need to talk to their children about new trends in illicit drugs, and help their children see the #dangers of trying #drugs like krokodil. #Russia

#Marijuana  is Not ‘Just Pot’
Read More: http://cleanslaterecovery.com/10/02/2013/marijuana-just-pot

Some may feel shame and/or guilt that use of such a “minor” drug has such a major effect on their lives. An #addict  can fall into the trap of #comparing  one #addiction  to another, one’s recovery program to another and can become judgmental of themselves. This is not rational thinking and doesn’t assist in the #recovery  process.

What is #Dilaudid
Read More: http://cleanslaterecovery.com/09/18/2013/dilaudid/

Is Dilaudid #addiction  different from an addiction to #morphine ? No, not really. They both work on the #brain  in the similar manner. A person who #abuses  Dilaudid goes from tolerance, dependence and addiction in the same way that most other #narcotic   #substanceabusers  do.

RX #DrugAbuse  Can Lead to #Heroin  
Read More: http://cleanslaterecovery.com/09/04/2013/rx-drug-abuse-can-lead-to-heroin/

After #abusing   #painkillers  for some time, the user often wants to try something new, or needs something stronger to feel the high. It is at this time that heroin begins to take the place of #prescriptiondrugs , and before the person knows it, they are #addicted .
