Saw this infographic posted on facebook today:


While related to an entirely different vice/addiction (smoking), which has very different and partly irreversible physical side-effects, it was interesting to see the timescale that the recovery period was being framed in.

Recovery from an addiction, be it physical, habitual or mental recovery, can take a very long time. I need to be mentally preparing myself for weeks, months or even years of recovery. Currently I have no idea realistically how long this will take and what the various phases will be, but the worst thing I could do at this early stage is to underestimate the duration and leave myself prone to relapse.
