You can say my recovery relies simply on the connection I’ve made with not just others but myself. The connection I’ve made with those I surround myself with has helped me go beyond my comfort zone. Making a connection with another addict in the program or a supportive friend or family member is the most important factor in my recovery, in my opinion, because without reaching out and getting to know people will only leave me by myself and this is what my inner circle prefers. So the connection I’ve made with the others in my recovery has taught me how to reach out when I need help when I’m in a bad headspace, or even just to have a helpful hand in a simple favor. More importantly, making a connection with another human-being is the essence of life. On a more intimate level, getting to know someone for who they are – to realize and really understand, only influences me to become the best person I can be and over time the connection I’ve made and choose to continue making will help strengthen my progress in my recovery.
