First Things First

When in crisis, we may spend a lot of time and energy trying to put out all the fires, jumping chaotically from one thing to another. When we deal with problems one at a time, we become more organized. When our lives become more organized, our minds become less overwhelmed, and our feelings of fear and resentment begin to diminish. The Three C's help us to put our problems in perspective as we try to gain understanding in the matter of addiction. We didn't cause it, we can't control it, and we can't cure it.
