A healthy man wants a thousand things, a sick man only wants one.
The first time I heard this, I was blown away at how true this was for me. When I was using, I only thought about using more. How to get it, when I could do it, how to keep others from knowing, etc. That was my focus. As a sober person, it’s usually the last thing on my mind and my focus is on living my life and all the good things associated with that.
