Overcoming drug addiction can be a very difficult process, especially if you’re going through detox. Sometimes knowing that you’re not alone in your struggles can provide you with that final push you need to stick with treatment. Finding motivational drug addiction quotes can help you find a mantra to make the process a little easier.
Drug Addiction Quotes Said By Past Drug Users
The most important thing to remember when you’re fighting addiction is that you’re not alone. Almost 10% of the United States population over the age of 12 used drugs in 2013, and the number only continues to climb. Drug addiction doesn’t discriminate. Even famous people have had to find the help they need to get through. Here are some of their words to help you get through the tough days:
“I got sober. I stopped killing myself with alcohol. I began to think: ‘Wait a minute – if I can stop doing this, what are the possibilities?’ And slowly it dawned on me that it was maybe worth the risk.” – Craig Ferguson
“A lot of people think that addiction is a choice. A lot of people think it’s a matter of will. That has not been my experience. I don’t find it to have anything to do with strength.” – Matthew Perry
“I have other obligations now – the show, my family, my life… though I know that without my sobriety I wouldn’t have any of those things.” – Rob Lowe
“My identity shifted when I got into recovery. That’s who I am now, and it actually gives me greater pleasure to have that identity than to be a musician or anything else, because it keeps me in a manageable size.” – Eric Clapton
