Respecting one's own self and believing in yourself is very important. If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will. There are countless examples of persons recovering from addiction, read those stories of hope and triumph over adversity.

Positive attitude always gives the much desired boast under any circumstances, that is why if anyone is planning to visit any rehab centers, it is better for them to retain the positive energy for staying in control even in touch condition.Also self confidence gives the stamina to fight back all the odds.
