When we are having a hard time or feeling overwhelmed by
life's demands, it helps to remember our most important priority. We
need above all to stay abstinent and stable. Without that we have little
real chance of sorting out life's complexities.
A lot of us tend to overcomplicate things. This simple
slogan reminds us that we can reduce things to their basic components
and deal with them in manageable sized chunks. By focusing on one thing
or one part of one thing at a time, the impossible becomes a series of
small manageable tasks.
Active addiction distorts our thinking. It takes time to
lift the fog of drugs and alcohol. It can take time to get our
medications adjusted just right. The slogan, Keep It Simple,
reminds us to be gentle with ourselves, enhances our recovery, and helps
us to reduce stress.
