Short & Sweet: The Old Math of Addiction VS. The New Math of Recovery


"The old math was calculating how many more drinks I could have and how many less hours of sleep I could sustain to come to with alarm clock blaring. The old math was calculating how many hours it would take the next day before I could begin the vicious cycle again. My old math measured time in ounces and quarts, in urges and surges and blurs, blaring and bounces, bangles and jangles and booze.
This new math is sane and sober: one is one is won."

"Nothing matters more than that we remain sober because when we remain sober everything matters more."
