Expectations guide our progress in recovery, but having unrealistic expectations during the process sets us up for failure. When we set expectations so high, we add unneeded stress and decrease our chance of success.info_outline Next Right Action - Recovered 1210
What I have learned is that doing the next right thing brings about self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-love. This is a gift beyond measure. But the process of discernment can be tricky.info_outline Gigi Open Talk - Recovered 1208

One of the famous sayings used by Twelve Step groups is that you have to give it away in order to keep it. What this is referring to is that service work can help the giver as much as the receiver.info_outline Big Book Workshop Part 6 - Recovered 1205
And when we learn to finally drop those "rocks," we can become who we want to be, and our acts of humility, willingness, and courage will have a healing ripple effect on one another. And that's where the Steps come in: Step 6, Step 7, and Step 10 are designed to help you manage your shortcomings with grace and humility.info_outline Sobriety is For Anyone - Recovered 1202

There is no fear so intense that sobriety cannot bring relief, no relationship so twisted that peace is not imaginable, no noise of life so loud that harmony is not possible.info_outline Big Book Workshop Part 3 - Recovered 1199

Now, back to the show…
Tonight, the topic is
A popsicle stick meeting is a meeting where we let our higher power determine what we need to share on. Here in the studio, we have a can full of popsicle sticks. Each stick has a recovery topic written on it. We will take turns, randomly picking a stick and then sharing on that topic that was chosen.
I first experienced “Popsicle Sticks” at the Thursday Midnight night meeting at the Northwest Alano Club in Wayne Michigan. At first I hated it, then I got used to it, then it became my favorite meeting.
Flash forward to 2008ish when the PC Alano club started in Canton, Michigan. On September 28, 2008, the Canton Candlelight meeting started at the PC Alano Club. Soon after that, this style of meeting started on Thursday nights. This style of meeting continues at Canton Candlelight every Thursday at 10:00 pm and is led by are own Matt O.
Here’s how it goes.
Pick a stick
Announce the topic to all
Share on the topic
Keep the stick
Pass the can
