I'm not sure if I'm going into this with courage or stupidity.
why not both?
the courage to change, and the wisdom to acknowledge that we do not have all the answers [well, actually we do, but we need the perspectives of others to help us realize it]
i believe that one who maintains an attitude of ignorance is 'teachable'. you can't learn if you already know everything.
and you are going into it with a positive attitude, so that is going to take you far in your healing.
best of luck with your endeavors in this area,
your brother in recovery,
