In recovery, motivation for me starts with the understanding of what I want. This comes from within for me. When times get hard and I lose track of myself, I remember what it is I want and then the whole cycle of motivation recycles itself, and then I’m back on track. Having something I want helps me learn to work with the level of motivation that I have in the moment. In recovery my motivation to have good healthy real friends is a huge motivation because I have not had that in the past. If I continue to stick to the script that is laid out in front of me, all that is possible and that’s my motivation for recovery.
