Move two feet down from your brain.

Get out of your head and into your heart. We alcoholics and addicts spend too much time manipulating, rationalizing, minimizing, worrying, intellectualizing, and trying to feel good by using our brains and not our hearts. All of this brain usage tends to fuel relapse. It's better to trust your heart, your good spirit, your childlike acceptance and your trust mechanisms. Your brain tends to create ego defenses. Your heart creates the humility which is necessary for sobriety.  Recovery takes little intellectual energy. The key is to humbly do what is suggested and to stay spiritually connected.  


I've never known anyone too stupid for recovery, but I have known people to be too smart so let your heart lead you to follow good recovery advice today.
