Video: Acceptance of Powerlessness

Being an addict in recovery can be a beautiful experience. First though, we all need to fully accept that we are addicts. As long as we have a part of us that wants to try to prove that we are not really an addict and that we can “use” like “normal” people, then we are forever in internal turmoil. A battles rages that will threaten our sobriety until we fully and completely accept who we truly are and love that part of us fully too. Once we are completely accept ourselves then we are able to feel at peace and begin to truly build the lives that we are capable of living.
