To build a healthy foundation for a relationship, you make room for what you want and for what the other person wants, where neither party has to always meet the other’s expectations. Respecting each other as separate but equally important people with differences and unique needs strengthens your connection rather than disrupting it. To get to this place takes a lot of work. It takes a lot of soul-searching and rigorous honesty. We need to step outside of our comfort zone and face our false self—who we are not—so that we can become who we really are.
It’s the part of us that decides to drink or use regardless of consequences. It drives us to go to any lengths to get high and fights to protect its right to drink or use. When confronted, this addict self turns reality around to create confusion and doubt in others, as an octopus uses ink as a defense. The addict self is scheming, manipulative, and dishonest. Its major purpose is to ensure that it can continue to drink or get high. When we begin the journey of recovery, another self begins to emerge and vies for a more important position in our personality.

Emotional sobriety is critical to long-term recovery. In Stage II recovery, we begin to examine the remaining toxic beliefs and attitudes of our false self, we become more familiar with our inner addict, we become aware of unhealthy patterns in our relationships, we discover how to be of real value to others, and we move toward taking total responsibility for our lives.
