What’s Doing Push-ups Behind the Scenes?

There's a saying in the rooms of recovery that 'your disease is doing push-ups' while you're in there working on sobriety, abstinence, solvency or your form of mental and spiritual well-being. Translated, if you choose to go back...

Have You Been Scammed Lately?
