A successful recovery requires a positive mindset. People can struggle to find a positive attitude when at rock bottom. Sometimes, encouraging words can give someone the strength necessary to get and stay sober.

Use these famous quotes about sobriety and finding addiction help to get you where you want to be in your recovery.

“If you can quit for a day, you can quit for a lifetime.” - Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Take recovery one day at a time. If you get through the first day, you know you can get through the next day and each day after that.

People struggling to get through the first day of sobriety can call the professionals at Hollywood Hills Recovery to learn about inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation services.

“The best way out is always through.” – Robert Frost

People like to ignore their condition. However, ignoring a disease only keeps it alive in the background. One day, it will come to the forefront again.

Do not live in denial or put off recovery. Face it head-on. Go through the forest. While you may have a few scrapes and bruises when you get out, you will get out alive.

“People become attached to their burdens sometimes more than the burdens are attached to them.” - George Bernard Shaw

Drugs and alcohol attack the brain, similar to unrequited love. The addict cares so much, but the substances don't have the same attachment. Like you would do with a significant other who doesn't show you love, you need to release yourself from these burdens to find happiness.

“First, you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

When the disease takes over, it becomes a monster. It starts small with a drink that leads to another and then another.

Famed alcoholic author F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote about how the decadence of the 20s hid some dark secrets, and his own well-documented struggles with alcohol took over his life until his slow death from alcoholism.

“I understood, through rehab, things about creating characters. I understood that creating whole people means knowing where we come from, how we can make a mistake and how we overcome things to make ourselves stronger.” - Samuel L. Jackson

Many people don't know that Samuel L. Jackson missed out on two Broadway roles due to his disease. Despite his problems, he fought to become the critically acclaimed actor we love and respect. You can do it, too.

This quote shows us that one moment in time or one action does not define a character. It's part of a whole. Choose to make the rest of the story better.

“The idea that the creative endeavor and mind-altering substances are entwined is one of the great pop-intellectual myths of our time." - Stephen King

Some people make the mistake of thinking that substances can improve creatives processes. Take it from the king of horror himself to learn it isn't true. You can't write, draw, or play music if too intoxicated. That time should be spent honing your craft- you'll see better results.

“Just because something is familiar doesn't mean it's safe. And just because something feels safe, doesn't mean it's good for you.” ― Brittany Burgunder

Drugs and alcohol become somewhat of a comfort blanket for people. The drugs and alcohol make them feel safe, but the feeling is a mind trick. They become so used to the sensations that they mistake the temporary good feeling for a true sense of security. Making drugs and alcohol unfamiliar will force the addict to find an alternative way of feeling safe and secure.

“What is addiction, really? It is a sign, a signal, a symptom of distress. It is a language that tells us about a plight that must be understood.” – Alice Miller

Many people abuse substances as a cry for help. They may suffer from mental illness or personal issues that cause them to numb the pain with drugs and alcohol. Addressing the source of the pain can make someone feel so much better that they don't need drugs or alcohol anymore.

Individual and group therapy at Hollywood Hills Recovery can help you get to the root of your substance abuse. Therapists can help you create a dual-diagnosis treatment plan designed to treat both the addiction and the mental illness.

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb

You can't turn back time. We can hope and pray, but it can't be done. Instead of thinking about what you didn't do 20 years ago, think about what you can do today. The alcohol may have hurt the liver a bit, but stopping today can prevent further damage. Don't give up. It's never too get to get healthy and happy.

“Remember, just because you hit bottom doesn’t mean you have to stay there.” – Robert Downey Jr.

Climbing from rock bottom is a very long climb. It's intimidating. However, you can pull yourself up and out from the bottom. Don't think that because you put yourself in a bad situation that you need to live that way for the rest of your life.

Robert Downey Jr. struggled with drugs and alcohol in youth only to find support in rehabilitation that helped him become Iron Man to millions of people. Find your inner Iron Man to pull yourself up from rock bottom.

"Experience is not what happens to you, it is what you do with what happens to you." – Aldous Huxley

Trauma and environment can contribute to a person's actions later in life. However, we have the autonomy to change the behavior. Stop reacting by instincts that may not guide you correctly and take control over your reactions. You have the power to step back, examine the things happening around you, and make evolved decisions on how to respond.

“One of the hardest things was learning that I was worth recovery.” – Demi Lovato

Guilt attacks the soul and the mindset, making someone think they don't deserve a second chance or the acceptance and support they receive in recovery. Get those negative thoughts out of your head! You are worth it. Don't go to recovery for the people around you. Instead, go for yourself.

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” – Confucius

Not everyone progresses at the same rate. That's okay! Some people take longer to achieve their goal than others. However, any progress is progress. As long as you take little steps in the right direction every day, you should be proud of yourself. Just keep yourself on that forward trajectory.

“Quitting smoking is easy. I’ve done it a hundred times.” - Mark Twain

People slip up, even after recovery. Getting sober is the easy part. Staying sober takes hard work. Set yourself up for success with aftercare. However, if you fall, pick yourself up again. We know it's difficult, and we want to help you get clean for the 100th time if that's what it takes.
