Walking the walk beats talking the talk. When others tell their experience using the pronouns I, me, and my rather than you, we, and our, the message for the listener is less likely to be taken as one person trying to influence another. What works for one may not work for another, but may be taken as possible courses of action for another looking for ways to maintain their recovery. Meanwhile, I can tell you what works for me, but I cannot tell you what will work for you. Your program of recovery will always be your program of recovery.
