Dream On.

 "Dream on,
Dream on,
Dream until your dreams come true" - Aerosmith


Have you ever had a dream?  When you were a kid, did you ever dream of being as strong as Superman, as fast as The Flash, or as beautiful as a Princess?  We all have dreams at some point in our lives about who we want to become.  It is part of human nature.  Unfortunately, most of us give up on our dreams long before it’s time to quit.  

A dream is simply, “a strongly desired goal or purpose.”  When you wanted to make the honor roll as a kid, you had a dream.  When you wanted to win first place in your swim team competition, you had a dream.  When you want to be Teacher of the Year, you have a dream.  And, believe it or not, when you want to break free from the chains of addiction, you have a dream.

Sobriety, for many drug users, is nothing but a distant dream.  It feels unrealistic.  It seems impossible.  It feels way too difficult to achieve.  Many addicts disregard their dream and choose to remain in the shackles of addiction.  

Do you dream of freedom from addiction?  Do you dream of never having to chase after another fix ever again?  Do you dream of living your life full of love, laughter, and sobriety?  Then why don’t you go get it?  Dreams are nothing if you don’t take action.

So dream until your dreams come true!
