How Do I Know If I Need Recovery? From What?
“Am I happy?” It seems clear that if you are happy you
are not going to want to change anything about yourself.
The key to seeing if you are happy is to ask yourself the followings
questions. “How completely do I enjoy being who
I am right now?” “Do I say or do self‐destructive things?”
“Do I feel anxiety much of the time, even when I am faced
with no important losses?” “Do I have problems getting
myself to do things that my judgment tells me I should be
doing?” “Do I feel lonely and isolated, but can’t get myself
to take any steps to connect with other people?” “Am I
ashamed of being who I am?” “Do I have problems obeying
the law?” “Do I abuse alcohol, other drugs, sex, gambling,
food, or exhibit any other addictive behavior?” “Do I find
myself unable to accept and let go of past disappointments?”
“Do I experience anger, resentment or rage when I
can see they do me more harm than good?” “Have I been
diagnosed with any emotional or mental disorders?” “Do I
tend to alienate people around me or leave them with a
poor impression of who I am?” “Am I frustrated about my
inability to help myself?“
If you have any of these kinds of problems, don’t feel
discouraged about them because you can greatly reduce
these problems and often can free yourself from them
entirely by taking the Five Gates Training Program as it is
found here. Don’t believe anyone who says you can’t.
