Great Question!

Hello Shujit,

There are a lot of great tips to recover from drug and/or alcohol addiction.

– Join a 12-step program at AA, NA, or CA and attend 90 meetings in 90 days. By attending these meetings daily you will re-train your brain not to use drugs.

– Pick a sponsor that can help you any time you feel like using. A good sponsor can get you through the rough patches and help you stay sober.

– Keep away from ANYONE who uses drugs, going back to your usual environment is the quickest way to relapse.

– If you relapse DON”T GIVE UP, relapse is common but you must stop using immediately and back into treatment, the sooner the better.

– Connect with God, the more spiritual support you receive from God the more likely you are to recover.

– Work the steps of the 12-step program, or as they say in AA, the steps work if you work them.

– Get individual counseling or go into treatment, many times there are free services available if you seek them out.

– Go to a doctor and have a medical checkup, tell him/her about your addiction and make sure there are no under lying health issues that need treatment.

– Try to help others once you have been sober for a while, helping others makes you realize how far you have come and helps you to never want to go back.

Good Luck!
