Anytown, any person USA, as long as you are still breathing, you can choose to recover from whatever issue is in front of you. We will always have something to deal with, and recovery will always take effort on your part.
Don't be quick to judge how long it takes some people to get this recovery life. It is always a daily choice. Many people will suffer a lifetime in silence rather than reach out to walk a long arduous road of recovery. Nobody says it's going to be easy. In recovery we say, "spite your face to save your a--." It takes whatever it takes.
