ADDICTION = Impatience \ RECOVERY = Impatience Decelerated


SLOW DOWN....Because if you haven't slowed down, you're still living in addiction, whether or not your drug of choice still inhabits every cell of your body, whether or not your mind is still in the Land of More.

(Surimi) [sums it up well, speaking to Vatchi (and Sotto, easily within earshot)]: Vicious cycles. Vicious circles. No vicious virtue.... You're right, Vatchi. Slow down, Jim. Impatience. If there's one character defect I've seen in most, if not every addict and alcoholic, it's impatience. Always waiting for and wanting the next hit, the next drink. The waiting and wanting have become character traits that have not yet stopped, even after the drinking and drugging stops. The waiting and wanting continue. It takes time to decelerate.

SLOW DOWN....Because if you haven't slowed down, you're still living in addiction, whether or not your drug of choice still inhabits every cell of your body, whether or not your mind is still in the Land of More....
Be still your beating heart. Recovery is here... , is now....
SLOW DOWNSLOW DOWN... !!! (slow down.... )
