The Rich Man and the Poor Man May Never Be Even. But let's take a moment to look at it through the lens of Addiction: The Rich Addicted Man and the Poor Addicted Man will eventually reach similar ends. The Common Ground that they share on Addiction Road is not at first known to them.
In Recovery, both the Rich Man and the Poor Man will find a Richer Life than they ever knew possible.
If that sounds like mere puffery to you, perhaps you've not been Clean and Sober long enough to discover it for yourself.
Row your Sober Boat on the River of Recovery for a bit longer. You will find the Wind at your Back and the Common Goals of you and your Fellows in Recovery with you.
Your Sober Boat will find Fellow Ship (horrendous pun absolutely intended).
We, in Recovery, are all Richer than Before Addiction took its Toll.
"For Richer, for Poorer, in Sickness and in Health," I've crossed some kind of line here, but won't give up the Ship! Silly me.
In Recovery, I will allow myself such silliness.
I am free.
We are Richer than Before.
I hope you enjoy BOTH of my BOOKS on ADDICTION & RECOVERY! (Print & Kindle Versions of Both are Available!)
