What an interesting topic. Making yourself available? For what? 

 

FOR OTHERS IN RECOVERY!!!

 

If there is one thing we’ve figured out by now, a sure fire way to get out of self is by helping others. In order to do so we must make ourselves available to those who may still be suffering. Easier said than done sometimes. Luckily, we have a great many-a-people we can look to for advice if ever we get perplexed. Oh look at that! They too have made themselves available! THIS IS HOW IT WORKS.

 

This week’s topic is inspired by an incredible warstory from Will.  Growing up in New York, Will had a fairly normal childhood, experimenting with weed. In College, he met his match. Heroin became all he cared about and had him stealing and resorting to things he never thought he’d do to get his next fix.

 

Interestingly, Will always wanted to become a recovery coach and even when using was trying to attend school to pursue this career. Hear what it took for him to finally put down the needle and apply the surrender necessary to get the help he needed. 

 

Thanks Will for sharing your amazing story!
