Slogans For Recovery

We’ve all heard them. Some people like them and some could care less. Some love them and some hate them. But for many people in recovery, the slogans we hear and use, can be helpful tools in recovery. Sometimes they’re just a little reminder to re-center ourselves during the day. Sometimes they are words to live by. Sometimes they are a few words that are applied to daily meditations where we look for a deeper meaning and relate our experiences to.
