Recovered Podcast

Much like other areas of life, when we first enter recovery, it’s new and exciting. Unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before, living life in sobriety after years spent toiling away in addiction is exhilarating and we strive for more. But what happens after the novelty of recovery wears off? Complacency in recovery is not uncommon but can become dangerous if you let it take control. Tonight, we talk about Complacency in Recovery 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...

Anger - Recovered 1022 show art Anger - Recovered 1022

Recovered Podcast

Addiction recovery almost always involves dealing with anger. Anger may be directed at oneself, at specific people, or society as a whole. Without learning to process anger in a constructive manner, a person with an addiction cannot move forward in recovery. Abstinence is prescribed for people addicted to drugs and alcohol. So, should alcoholics give up having ambition and setting goals? No. Ambition is not bad. We need to have a healthy relationship with ambition just as we need healthy relationships with all our desires. Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self...

When your life has been impacted by addiction, it’s easy to beat yourself up and feel excessive shame. But that kind of behavior will never drive you to commit to the life-long process of beating your addiction. Instead, you need to master the art of personal acceptance.

In recovery, our job is to start living a personally meaningful life, a life that matches who we are. We have to shift from “ambition” to “meaning.” We merely distract ourselves with “ambition.” The 12-step program tells us that our essential problem is not substance abuse, but that we allow our egos to run our lives. Those who live by the demands of the ego have several mistaken beliefs. First, they judge their worth by the amount of stuff they have; second, they believe they are what they do; third, their self-esteem is based on what others think of them.

We have to stop allowing the ego to control us and live a life that appeals to who we really are. We have to have the right kind of ambition to meaningful sober life.

What comes first to mind, what do you want to say to the new person in recovery about ambition?

What is good ambition?
What is bad ambition?
How do you know the difference?

What is grandiosity to you?
How is this related to ambition?

What is humility to you?
How can humility help to have proper ambition?

How can your higher power help with proper ambition?

Bill Wilson write in “As Bill See it”,
True ambition is the profound desire to live usefully and walk humbly under the grace of God.

Thoughts on this quote?

How does envy play a part in disordered ambition?
How can the program help?

What part of the program helps you with proper ambition
What steps?
What prayers?
What part of the fellowship?
Slogans?

How are you ambitious in your recovery?
What part of your recovery are you proud of?
How did you achieve that goal?
