Courage is when you’re scared to do something, but you find the strength to do it anyway. Walking into an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meeting for the first time, or sharing takes immense courage. Admitting you need help, and seeking treatment is also courageous.
E.E. Cummings Quote
When you live your life courageously and addiction-free, amazing things start to happen. You develop high self-esteem. You’ll have emotional stability, and can easily bounce back from hardships. New experiences will arise, and you’ll have a willingness to experience them, rather than fear them.
Courage is necessary in recovery, but you don’t have to muster up all your courage by yourself.

Admitting you have a problem and becoming willing to make a change is the most courageous and important step to a healthy life.
