It Works: How and Why

“What is meant by a “searching and fearless moral inventory?” We take stock of our assets and liabilities. We try to get at the bottom of who we are, to expose the lies we have told ourselves about ourselves. For years, we became whoever we needed to be to survive our addiction.

We can begin to stop being the person we have invented and find the freedom to be who we are.”
