Ernest Hemingway once said his best work was a story he wrote in just six words: 'For sale: baby shoes, never worn.' The Guardian challenged some contemporary authors to be equally economical

I thought it might be be useful and healthy fun to challenge our joint communities to generate healing / recovery related stories in a similar fashion

my efforts

Recovery: Rejecting conditioning, choosing new life.

Recovery: Owning my past, relinquishing shame.

The Way Out: Recognition, Compassion, Acceptance

Addiction: Emotion management through artificial means.

My suggestions are:

It's never too late to change

SA's were not born that way

Good choices make a good life
