Humility, like so many other concepts in recovery that at first seem like weaknesses, turns our to be one of our greatest strengths. By thinking about ourselves less, alcoholic behavior patterns a truer identity emerges, a more peaceful and fulfilled sense of self that comes from being of service to and from helping others. While my ego may never give up the fight, I’m thankful I have this quote to remind me of the truth: I am always happier when I’m thinking about myself less – when I’m practicing true humility.

words of encouragement for sobriety An addiction can be the result of any number of things – an addict is not necessarily a bad person. Many people feel overwhelmed by the pressures and stresses of their lives and turn to drugs as a ‘get-away’.
