Sobriety: Straight Up!
Delbert Boone emphasizes that an important part of recovery and sobriety is to recognize and understand that not everything that has happened in an addict's life 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. He illustrates how addicts engage these qualities while actively pursuing their drug of choice, and outlines how these same positive qualities can be used during recovery to maintain sobriety.
