Chemical dependency is an illness that isolates us and makes us feel alone and misunderstood. The more we can share with each other, the more guidance and inspiration we can provide for one another. When we hear another person’s story that touches us in a meaningful way, it often comes right when we need it, when we’re in a dark place and suffering. We need other people when we’re in this place. We need other people to help us feel less isolated and alone.
Sharing the story of your recovery can enhance, underline, and strengthen your own recovery journey:
When we recognise how much support we’ve gained from others’ stories of victory over addiction, we come to recognise our own ability to provide the same support for newcomers in return.

We have been met with so much criticism and judgment in the past, it can take us some time to get used to the idea of being received with openheartedness and understanding.If we think of sharing not as a burdensome obligation but as a gift to the people with whom we’re sharing, we can be motivated by our desire to help other people.
