Recognizing Alcohol & Drug Addiction : Finding Serenity After Addiction


Hi, my name is John DePalma from New York
City on behalf of Expert Village I’m here today to help you recognize drug and alcohol
addiction. For me one of the most important things about getting sober and staying sober
was getting my spirituality back. It’s one of the first things you loose as a drug addict
and an alcoholic. You no longer become yourself, you loose your inner soul. My recovery has
taught me to be the person that I’ve always wanted to be, the things that alcohol and
drugs took from me. There’s a saying that encompasses it all and this is how I live
my life, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to
change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”
