Recovery from withdrawal affirmation

Sent to me from a recovered benzo friend. Though this is a positive affirmative prayer for any withdrawal from any drug.

RecoveryFirst

From this website:

I may not understand this complex withdrawal process, but I accept that positive changes are taking place.

I trust that the outcome will be full recovery of my nervous system.

In the meantime, when a symptom persists, I surrender.

I know that resisting will only increase my anxiety and make me feel worse.

And so, I acknowledge what is happening without struggling or questioning why.

I know these symptoms are only present because I am on my way to being

benzo-free and fully recovered.

I accept any discomfort or other sensation as a necessary path to my recovery.

I know that when this process is complete – right on schedule – I will be well again.

With this knowing, I take control of my recovery by completely letting go.

I am able to exhale. I breathe deeply and relax into this moment.

I release all concerns about my symptoms,

trusting that like other benzo survivors before me,

I WILL recover. I cope well, today, and every day until then.

I am grateful for my healing. This too, shall pass.
