Discusses the King Baby personality – (the childish ego traits seen in people who have reached adulthood without acquiring emotional maturity), which is common to people with addiction.
“Recovery can be delayed, even abandoned, due to the King Baby ego. True, all of us were born as King Baby, at the center of our universe. The problem is, many of us never shed the King Baby characteristics that chemical dependency helps us to sustain. King Baby tells us about the childish personality traits we must surrender before true recovery is possible. By following the suggestions in these pages, thoughts such as I must get my own way or else will be replaced by the words humility, gratitude, and forgiveness.”
