The Problem with Instant Gratification



Why the hell do we constantly keep pampering to the continuation of the addictive lifestyle with all these "quick fix" scenarios?? Instant gratification is a huge problem for anyone trying to create their own recovery journey, and accepting the fact that there is no easy road to take is the start of any sustainable behaviour change.


"Instant gratification is a huge problem for anyone trying to create their own recovery journey"


Whatever the latest click bait trend happens to be doesn't change the fact that the vast majority of people who use substance or process in an obsessive or addictive way are coping with a personality system that is emotionally immature. We have to start teaching people that recovery is hard work. In essence, its about reparenting those child parts of your personality so you finally grow up, instead of making money off of offering people these easy and usually ineffective short-term solutions!!  


Every week, The Liberation Place offers a number of different online groups that are an open format conversation, designed for people to attend and get support. Whether this is to join in on the conversation, or sit and listen to the discussion we are having as a community of people trying to support each other with the behaviour changes we are trying to make.

On Sunday, Wednesday anf Friday there is a Recovery Chat room, as well as Saturday, I co-facitate a meeting on Dependent Relationships in Recovery. Please join me in any, or all of these meetings to explore whether or not this conversation is the right fit for you, and you requirements for support.
