Together, we unravel the intricate journey toward sobriety, shedding light on the often elusive cycle of self-sabotage. Steven's profound insights serve as a guiding compass, steering us back to the foundational principles of recovery and offering invaluable advice on navigating the challenges of relapse and complacency.

We kick off by exploring the crucial role of rhythm and routine in establishing a sober lifestyle, drawing parallels to a ship's plimsoll line that marks safe submersion levels. Steven emphasizes the dangers of self-imposed limitations and the temptation to retreat into familiar comfort zones when faced with life's uncertainties. He stresses the importance of staying true to recovery practices, especially during challenging times, and highlights the power of community support in weaving a safety net beneath our journey to sobriety.

Throughout our conversation, personal anecdotes underscore the risks of complacency and neglecting recovery efforts, with Steven candidly sharing his own experiences. We delve into the psychological barriers of unworthiness and guilt that often accompany addiction, exploring how the 12-step program can help individuals shed shame and live without regret. Understanding the 'why' behind recovery principles is key, as is the unwavering commitment to consistent practice.

Ultimately, this episode serves as a beacon of resilience in the face of addiction, reminding us of the transformative power of self-awareness, community, and unwavering dedication to the path of recovery.
