Old Behaviors - Recovered 1073 show art Old Behaviors - Recovered 1073

Recovered Podcast

Think about what comes to mind when you think of patterns or behaviors. Likely it means doing something repetitive, over and over again, often without much thought given to the action. But when you’re in recovery, you can recognize that certain behaviors and attitudes have gotten you into trouble in the past. You learn in recovery that old behaviors from your addictive past have been destructive and that you can make important changes in your new life in sobriety. Tonight, we talk about Old Behaviors Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on...

Setting Boundaries - Recovered 1072 show art Setting Boundaries - Recovered 1072

Recovered Podcast

Your issues with boundaries come from your past. You may have grown up where boundaries were strict and harsh. This could lead to an inability to express your feelings or to keep everyone at arm’s length. Having no boundaries will lead to you and others being enmeshed. When this happens, your roles are interchangeable and blurred and you will not establish your sense of identity. As you get older, your relationships mirror those of the past and history begins to repeat itself. As you fall into the same patterns, you increase your risk of experiencing depression or anxiety and may fall into...

Once you get sober, it can be incredibly easy to get caught up in the chaos of daily life, and forget that taking care of yourself is not an option, but a priority.

Tonight, we talk about Self Care Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions.  If you would like to join us, there are three ways.   We will recognize you by first...

Triggers - Recovered 1066 show art Triggers - Recovered 1066

Recovered Podcast

One of the long-standing obstacles to recovery is the emotional and physical cues that we experience, which make us feel like using alcohol and drugs. These cues are most commonly referred to as triggers, and they can manifest differently for different people. For some, seeing old friends and loved ones is enough to trigger wanting a drink; for others, the stress of performing well at work or school elicits the old feelings of using performance-enhancing substances. Whatever the cause, triggers should be expected—and like many other facets of recovery, expecting and planning for them is the...

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.
