Essential for Survival
Of all the virtues we can learn, no trait is more useful, more essential for survival, and more likely to improve the quality of life than the ability to transform adversity into an enjoyable challenge
|When we take control of our lives and undertake a process of transformative personal change—such as recovery from addiction|
We give people in our lives a remarkable, unique gift
The gift of our transforming selves
It’s not a perfect gift!
Whether people in our lives choose to appreciate it, is beyond our control
Roots of Addiction
Addiction is a behavior intended to reverse a profound, intolerable sense of helplessness. This helplessness is always rooted in something deeply important to the individual.
