I love quotes and sayings especially inspirational quotes for recovery.  Recovery is a journey that transforms your entire life and person.  You feel great, look great, and grow into a proud, sober individual.  Completely different from who you were in active addiction.  If you are having trouble adjusting to recovery, do not worry. Many people feel uncomfortable at first, we are adapting to a new way of life.

Take a look at these inspirational quotes and they may just give you that feeling of comfort that you need.  Quotes can inspire and empower a person which is what you need.  As recovering addicts, we expect instant gratification.  We just have to learn that is not the way of the world.  All that being said, one of these inspirational quotes for recovery might be just what you need to hear.  Sit back and take it in. Recovery is an amazing, never-ending ride.
