I hope this message finds you in having an awesome life, making steady strides on your path to recovery!

You know, it’s a funny thing how we can sometimes be our own worst enemies. Have you ever taken a moment to wonder why you might subconsciously throw a wrench in your own progress?

We all do it: one minute, we’re committed to our recovery, and the next, we find ourselves pulled back into old, destructive habits. It’s as if a part of us is afraid of what success might bring, so we fall back into familiar but harmful patterns, telling ourselves we don’t deserve better.

If this resonates with you, you’re not alone. Self-sabotage often comes from a place of fear—fear of failure, of change, or even of our own worthiness. We question whether we are deserving and sometimes give ourselves an “out,” thinking it’s easier to say we never tried something rather than face the possibility of trying and still falling short. It’s a tough cycle to break, but the first step is awareness. We can’t change what we don’t recognize, right?

So, let’s take this journey together and build a better, healthier version of ourselves—one small, doable step at a time. It might not be an overnight fix, but it’s a start. And remember, if the going gets tough, we’re always here to help guide you through it.

Until next week, stay strong, and keep fighting the good fight.

All the best,

Ben Randolph
