Ok, that’s it. I’ll give the Bear one freebie….because I’m a rookie.
Being new to living in the Kootnay Mountains of British Columbia, I learned the hard way that you have to keep your garbage indoors. Otherwise you’ll wake up one morning to a scene like the one in the picture above showing the can popped open, the bags ripped up and everything strewn about the yard.
Oh sure, he’s a cute “little” guy. Probably just a 2 year old and weighing in at about 220 pounds, he moves like a linebacker and has a paw bigger than my hand, as evidenced by the distance of his nail marks in that apple pictured below.
I’ve decided that he can have all the apples he wants but I’m keeping the garbage in the shed from now on.
The point is, around here “everyone knows” that you keep your garbage inside. I didn’t – because I’m new and no one told me – but I also didn’t ask.
It’s the same with addiction recovery. You can go it alone and slowly learn things the hard way or you can ask someone with experience that’ll show you how to avoid “rookie mistakes”.
At Alchemist Recovery, this is the exact kind of thing I do for my clients.
During the month of September, I’ll be looking to fill the two spots that have opened up in my schedule. So if you or someone you know would benefit from an effective, holistic approach to addictions treatment created from over 20 years of experience, shoot me an email with any questions you may have.
I looking forward to hearing from you!
