“One thing that the vicissitudes of addictive illness teaches us, it’s that in the last analysis what matters is not our circumstances or our experiences – let alone our thoughts – but our feelings: We need to feel and be felt by other feeling people. We need this more than we need therapy, religion, or any of the material trappings of so-called success.”
