I had been a disciple for about a year and a half and had hit a slump. I was going through a very emotional time and couldn't understand why I wasn't growing spiritually. As a matter of fact, I thought I was losing my mind. One day, my sister-in-law asked if I would be her CR partner (in those days, it was known as CD, chemical dependency). I said yes, and was I in for a surprise! I sat and listened to the teacher explain "what are the characteristics of an addict". I thought he was talking about me! Everything he said seemed like it was taken out of my life story.
