Too Smart For Recovery? | Psychology Today

So, what does this quote mean and why should I write about it? Though I wasn’t able to ask Mr. Williams what he meant by it, my years of counselinginterprets such as being too smart for one’s own good and not letting go of one’s pride and ego in order to be humble enough to accept help, advice and guidance from others. Please understand that I’m not implying that Mr. Williams had an ego problem or didn’t try with great diligence to eradicate his addiction issues, I’m only inferring that one’s ego, self will and stubbornness may hinder one’s ability to proceed on a healthy recovery track.
