In this podcast, we discuss how with the benefit of four years of continuous sobriety, Tony is able to recollect with some objectivity his downward spiral and his path to recovery. Here we learned that:
- Parents are always at a loss of what to do, as they are not educated on the nature of the disease that has taken over their child.
- Tony's mom, burdened by anxiety and fear, was nonetheless ready to sacrifice everything to help her son get sober.
- At some point, even Tony knew he had a problem but couldn't figure out how to resolve it with or without help. His was what we call the "revolving door or relapse".
- Only when he was truly sick and tired of living in guilt and shame did the "teacher" appear. That is when he made the decision to find a sanctuary and surrender his old ways of thinking.
