In this episode, we tackle the difference between sobriety and recovery. Sobriety is refraining but recovery is recovering your self-worth, gaining skills & moving forward.
Here are some of the highlights:
1. Sobriety can contribute to the addiction - An individual who is doing all of his recovery work to try to stay sober, he's doing it from a place of fear and control, and place of shame.
2. Compliance with your wife is not recovery - Doing everything right because she tells you to is sobriety. Recovery is not about checklist or how many days you are sober. Recovery is about "Surrender."
3. The best indicator of recovery is the ability to be vulnerable. If you recover your self-worth then you can be vulnerable - you can be honest, open and more connected to your spouse.
