Recovered Podcast

In our program, it’s our responsibility to make plans. Making plans help us to achieve goals. Goals to improve our well being. Goals to help us be happy, joyous, and free. We are told, it is okay to plan, just that we should be careful not to plan the outcomes. We can make a plan, we should just be careful that our plan doesn't turn into an expectation. An expectation that is unreasonably high can turn into a premeditated resentment. And resentments are dangerous for us alcoholics. Tonight, we talk about Making Recovery Goals. Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self...

Alienation and Loneliness - Recovered 1051 show art Alienation and Loneliness - Recovered 1051

Recovered Podcast

Feelings of alienation and loneliness are difficult, but they are also normal. They are a part of the human experience shared by all, whether recovering or not. Many deep thinking philosophers have attempted to make meaning of it these emotions. We all try to find ways to bear what sometimes feels unbearable. Spiritual traditions also describe these negative emotions. Some have talked about these feelings as a sense of disconnection from the divine. The fact that so many philosophers and spiritual figures have grappled with alienation and loneliness is an indication of how pervasive these...

Powerlessness is not meant to disempower. Although you may be powerless in the fact that you struggle with addiction and have no control over it, you are not powerless over the actions you can take because of that knowledge. By accepting the things you cannot change and understanding that it’s possible to change the things that are within your control, you open yourself up to options that can help you heal.

One of the fears that people have when they give up alcohol or drugs is that a life of sobriety will be boring. Once people spend a bit of time in recovery they realize that this is a complete myth. Sobriety opens up a world of opportunity, and most people complain that there is not enough hours in the day to do all the things they want to do.

In can be hard for those who abuse substances to understand how anyone could celebrate anything without mind-altering substances to help things along. These individuals can later find out that it is not only possible to celebrate without alcohol and drugs, but that it is significantly more rewarding to do so.

Reasons to Celebrate in Recovery

When people give up alcohol and drugs they already have something to celebrate. The longer they stay sober the more reasons they will have to feel good about life. There will also be plenty of special occasions in sobriety worth celebrating such as:

 

* Birth of a child

* Sobriety birthdays

* New job

* Passing an exam

* Winning an award

* Getting a promotion

* Getting married

* Holidays like Christmas

* Recognition for a job well done

 

Once people escape an addiction, they are sure to have some great days ahead of them. These celebratory times are to be enjoyed, but they can be treacherous for people who are in the early days of their sobriety.
