Many people often wonder why addicts relapse so many times before finally achieving sobriety. Although there are tons of answers out there, research tends to point to self-trust as being one of the most crucial aspects to recovery. Somewhere among all of the drinking and drug use, we lose ourselves and we feel as if we are never good enough. We don’t trust ourselves and our decision making because of all of the hurt and pain that we have caused.
Somewhere along the line we finally realize that if we cannot trust and rely on ourselves, then who can we trust and rely on? Once you finally come to this conclusion, you are one step closer to mastering the art of recovery. Remember to trust yourself and your decisions while you are clean and sober.
