Key Quotes:

  • “In recovery, we teach people to pick up what you need and leave the rest. So apparently, I needed to pick that up and remember that memory, and all the good stuff that came with it.” – Tracy Juenger Hathaway
  • “Once things start going good, things fall apart. That’s how you handle it to get through it. I tell a lot of clients I work with, it’s not about getting stuck in it, it’s about how you grow through it instead of getting stuck in it.” – Tracy Juenger Hathaway
  • “It’s so hard to watch someone die a little bit each day and not say something. You’re not trying to offer help or not do something. But, it’s just as hard for that person who’s in the middle of active addiction to sit there and know that you see them doing that, that they’re not ready or they just don’t have it in them to change yet.” – Tracy Juenger Hathaway
