The Best Gift You Can Give

The Holidays are stressful for pretty much anyone in the US.  They’re especially stressful for people who are actively addicted to alcohol or drugs.  That’s if you’re even invited to the family gathering in the first place.  After all, a lot of alcoholics and addicts aren’t even welcome around their families anymore.  Those that are welcome have to worry about what everyone is thinking about them.  And let’s not even talk about how many gifts we’re expected to bring.  As if those of us with serious substance dependence issues have any money to spend on gifts.

What if you could put an end to all of this stress?  What if you could find a gift so perfect that your whole family is happy?  A gift so awesome that it makes everyone tell you how much they love you.  That would be the best feeling.  What kind of gift would this be?  A winning lottery ticket?  Well, maybe.  But I mean something different.  A gift that ONLY alcoholics and addicts can give……..  The gift of YOU.

The Best Gift is One of a Kind

The truth is that YOU are what your family really wants.  They want you back.  Not the you on alcohol or drugs.  Not the one that is angry, depressed, reckless or steals and lies.  The real you.  The you that still exists under the mess of drug and alcohol abuse.

Nobody can buy this gift, you can’t hire someone to custom make it.  This is something that only you are capable of offering to your family and friends.  And be warned – it’s not an easy gift to find.  It doesn’t immediately show up.  It takes work every single day.  It’ll literally take blood (maybe), sweat (probably), and tears (definitely).  But thousands of people across the country have managed to give this gift to their family.  And to themselves.
