Drop the Rock…The Ripple Effect
by Fred H.

“…you reach a point in your recovery where you realize that to stop drinking or taking drugs isn’t the hardest part. …our real challenge is to stay stopped, because in the end, recovery isn’t merely about living life without getting drunk or stoned. It’s about living life on life’s terms, which can be downright difficult at times.”

-William C. Moyers, Foreward

Whether you’re at the beginning of recovery or you’ve got 25+ years, the challenge of living life on life’s terms is always present. Just because we stop using, we don’t get to live on a cloud away from all the toil, trouble, joy, sorrow, and just plain boredom of living. What we do get to do is take it one day at a time and show up for each moment. “Our words and actions naturally ripple out to the people around us – and then to the people around them, and the folks around them.” (Fred H., p. 71). Drop the Rock…The Ripple Effect is about making the program a way of life.
