One of the goals of drug and alcohol rehabs is to help the individual get over these character flaws so that they can build a new and better life in recovery.

The Dangers of Character Flaws in Recovery

There is no expectation that people in Paisley will need to overcome all their character flaws in other to beat their addiction. This is not something that any human will be able to achieve. All that is asked is that the individual begins working on those flaws that are most likely to cause them problems in recovery.

This would include things like:

  • Dealing with anger
  • Managing negativity and developing a positive attitude
  • Overcoming a pessimistic view of the future
  • Letting go of cynicism and learning to keep an open mind
  • Thinking about consequences before taking an action – an end to impulsive behaviour
  • Spending more time thinking about the feelings of other people – addiction can make people become extremely self-absorbed
  • Learning to be more honest and open

When the individual overcomes their own character flaws they will not only find that staying sober is easy, but it will also improve their life in general.

This is because it is often these negative behaviours and attitudes that prevent the individual from getting the most out of life. This means that the person is not just trying to be a goodie two shoes, but is doing the right things to get the right results.
