Speaking with a group of recovering addicts, Delbert Boone emphasizes that an important part of recovery and sobriety is recognizing and understanding that not everything that has happened in their lives is bad. He explains how most addicts have developed some very positive qualities such as creativity, consistency, diligence, determination and being able to deal with adversity. While most of these traits were developed in order to actively pursue their drug of choice, Boone outlines how these same positive qualities can be used during recovery to stay straight and maintain healthy sobriety.
