How Do We Know?
Blog post by: Alumni Relations Specialist
When I got sober I started to notice I had this thing inside of me- I guess I could call it a conscience! Others call it a gut feeling or even their Higher Power speaking through them. For so long in active addiction I disregarded my conscience to continue running on my will. When I got clean and sober I had to learn my will was not working and it landed me in rehab. I had to know that I really did not know! People helped me along the way with suggestions or their experiences. Many of the “good ideas” I had in my head needed to be talked about with members in recovery and this helped me spot self deception better. The “good ideas” were not so great after all. However, by talking those out it did teach me different perspectives and with the help of my network I always and still get through anything.
