What is Recovery?

"Inspiration for Recovery can come in an instant....no need to search for it. It will arrive inside--a moment of knowing--to awaken your senses to your true Self." ~Barbara Sinor, Ph.D.

My son, Richard, used to say, "Recovery is nothing but a moment in time when I feel normal." In his life, Richard was 'in recovery' many times. He would call himself a "recovering alcoholic" at these times. At those times, I assumed him had recovered his true Self again.

This question is a good meditation:  What do you recover, or uncover, when you choose to stay sober and straight for a period of time?
