Addiction is a soul sickness and Recovery provides the medicine. It’s a journey NOT a destination. One that we can not walk alone. For we only see ourselves in true perspective within relationships. We, humans, have a tendency to rationalize & justify any and all behavior and can continue on always feeling self defeated.
Until we allow another in. This is the premise of Fellowship and begins the TRUST walk of Recovery. This may occur even before one begins (knowingly) to build a relationship with a Higher Power. We may have not yet trusted that this Higher Power will provide the balm to ease our pain, even as provisions are put in our path, in the form of another one, who understands.
