Quotes

Alix: I found out how hard it is to change, really change. Even hell can get comfortable if you're used to it. All I wanted my whole life, was for that lonliness inside me to go away. But, it never did, no matted what I drank, or what drug I took, or where I went, who I was with. We all need something to help us get through life. All I needed was to find the right thing to rely on, something that would never go away, something I would never run out of. Turned out to be the same thing for everybody. ...

Excellent film on addiction to show in a Women's Treatment Program
27 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very realistic program that shows the serious risks to a recovering alcoholic/addict (even one who has had a long period of sobriety), of not honestly dealing with all her true feelings during her recovery, not going to regular AA/NA meetings, or not being able to call a Sponsor during high-risk situations. It dramatically shows that if that person doesn't have a tight Relapse Prevention Plan, she has NO contingency plan in place to help her maintain her sobriety. In addition, b/c she failed to have her RPP, she seriously risked her recovery when she decided to help a person still in active addiction to stop her addictive behaviors. By having that person live with her, she failed to take seriously the impact that it could have on her own life and recovery.
