None of us ever wanted to be addicts. Many see addiction as an obstacle that slows us down and holds us back; while that might be the case, in recovery we learn that our disease can give us a new level of understanding. Now that we are sober, we are blessed to be open to others and patient with ourselves. Helen Keller, who was blind and deaf, told of how her problems became her biggest gift.
