"Man's main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is." - Erich Fromm
KNOWLEDGE, EFFORT & EXPERIENCE are Writ Large in Erich Fromm's take on Achieving Human Potential. Addiction slowed my Personal Growth, if not bringing it to a Full Stop. Essentially, after 30 years of Daily Drinking, I emerged as a 46-Year-Old Teenager Battered by Addiction. Not a pretty sight. That I survived and was able to give birth to a New & Sober Being took Time, Patience and Shared Courage.
Today, I have come to believe that RECOVERY is Possible, Doable and Irreplaceable.
