If you want to recover, you must first believe that it is even possible! As if you don't believe your efforts will eventually be rewarded than most likely you will not do the work needed to reach that goal.
Much like, if I told you that you could fly the space shuttle. Really you could! If you started down a specific career path, started rubbing elbows with the right people, starting a strict training program and diet ... you COULD eventually fly.
HOWEVER! If you don't believe that you can actually do it, how much of the list of things that you need to do are you going to do on a regular basis? Exactly. Not a damn thing! Why waste the time, money, effort, etc. if its not going to happen anyway?
You must first believe that recovery is possible!
