Active addiction robs us of one of our most valuable resources which is to have hope in our lives. We all need hope in order for us to keep believing that our lives can change from the depths of the misery of active addiction to the freedom of recovery. With hope we can discover the second most valuable resource which is to find a selfless meaning in our lives. Helping someone else have a better day with no reward for ourselves is the answer and the freedom. This also applies to everyone on the planet whether they’re an addict or not.
