When you’ve been through the trials and tribulations of active addiction, you may have a hard time moving on. Those caught up in substance abuse often make poor choices and hurt others in the process. Sometimes, the 12-step recovery process can bring up shameful memories and negative thoughts about those actions. This is why self-compassion is crucial for those in recovery. When used as a recovery tool, self-compassion has shown to help people deal with the stresses of early recovery and better manage their emotions.

Addiction is an all-encompassing disease that can impact various aspects of a person’s life. Someone recovering from years of drug or alcohol use needs to heal in all of these facets. While everyone is different, there may be benefits of meditation in recovery to help some people in this healing process. Meditating allows you to set time aside to stop and relax. Some research has even shown that meditation can help people become less reactive to stress and recover from stress more efficiently. Tonight, we talk about Mindfulness Meditation.

The concept of “spiritual awakening” has many meanings. Keeping it simple, a spiritual awakening is really just a psychic change that, among other things, eliminates our obsession to drink. For some it can be quite a powerful and immediate experience, for others it is an ongoing concurrent part of working the 12 steps. The exact wording of step 12 is: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs. Tonight, we talk about Step 12. 3:25 To skip the intro This week, ...

Exploring spirituality in the 11th Step of AA Alcoholics anonymous can be a wonderful and illuminating experience. We now have a solid frame of reference built by the previous Ten Steps of AA. Our recovery has helped us to stay sober one day at a time and has allowed us to expand our capacity for new information about ourselves, and the world around us. This open-mindedness is one of the greatest things about AA. In AA the concept of a “higher power” and “God as we understand him” really affords every single person, from every walk of life, an unlimited choice of spiritual beliefs and...

Now, back to the show…

Tonight, the topic is 

Recovery in the Digital Age

When we use digital media, we are responsible for our own anonymity

and for protecting that of others. When we post, text, or blog, we should

consider whether we are publishing at the public level. When we break

our anonymity in these forums, we may inadvertently break the anonymity

of others.

Conference approved literature clearly defines how to protect anonymity.  Conference approved literature states:

 A.A.s do not publicly identify themselves as A.A. members using their full names and/or full-face photos.

What technology tools do you use in recovery?

How does it help?

How do you use it?

How do you get it?

What about

  • Google groups
  • Texting
  • Facebook
  • Online recovery support podcast
  • Online meetings 
  • Audible books
  • CDs
  • Phone calls
  • Group texting apps
  • email

What about open talks?

Isn’t that breaking anonymity?

Is there anything special you use with sponsees

What do you recommend to new people?

How does technology hinder your recovery program?

Are you concerned with privacy?

How do you protect your anonymity?

Do you worry about “Normal” people finding out you are in recovery when online?

 

Does your home group have a technology outreach?
