It is necessary that recovering addicts puts a bit of effort into removing their more serious character defects. They will not be expected to fix everything overnight, but a continual effort to develop as a human is required. Those who fail to deal with their major character flaws will find that this prevents them from finding true happiness in sobriety – they become a dry drunk. It could even be a trigger for a return to substance abuse.

What comes to mind first regarding character defects?

Why is identifying your character flaws important to your recovery?

How has ignoring one caused you pain?

How has identifying one helped you?

How do you identify your character defects?
