Happiness - Recovered 1040

Recovered Podcast

Release Date: 10/23/2019

Step 12 - Recovered 1121 show art Step 12 - Recovered 1121

Recovered Podcast

If nobody was doing any 12th-step work, the program would simply cease to exist. Without the service work of those who came before, no members would be here now.

Recovered Podcast

For many AA members, they say they have discovered their higher power and form a better understanding of that power.

Step Ten suggests that it's time we take responsibility for our actions and to promptly clean up our role in all matters.

Step 9 - Recovered 1115 show art Step 9 - Recovered 1115

Recovered Podcast

By making direct amends to the person harmed the temptation to skirt the issue because of embarrassment or pain is avoided.

Step 8 - Recovered 1113 show art Step 8 - Recovered 1113

Recovered Podcast

Making the list is one thing. Become willing to actually make amends to those harmed is another. It can be a very humbling, but growing experience, to actually admit wrong-doing, especially to the person harmed. But the process can relieve those trying to recover from so much guilt!

Step 7 - Recovered 1111 show art Step 7 - Recovered 1111

Recovered Podcast

We have taken the very difficult moral inventory and admitted to our wrongdoings to ourselves, our higher power and to another human being. It’s now time to remove those wrongdoings from our everyday lives and we need help to ensure that we completely remove our shortcomings and don’t continue to fall victim to any of addiction’s ill effects.

Step 6 - Recovered 1109 show art Step 6 - Recovered 1109

Recovered Podcast

The sixth step can bring about significant and very noticeable change when it comes to the thought patterns and behavior that have been with us for a long time. It doesn’t happen overnight obviously, and there is nothing like perfection when working the twelve steps of AA. It’s about making a commitment and being content with patient improvement.

Step 5 - Recovered 1107 show art Step 5 - Recovered 1107

Recovered Podcast

Step Four has prepared you for step five, and by finding the courage to overcome that fear of rejection or the shame of your inventory, you experience honesty on a deeper level than in your first step of admission, and you break the pattern of denial that often plagues those suffering with alcoholism.

info_outline
Step 4 - Recovered 1105 show art Step 4 - Recovered 1105

Recovered Podcast

While working on our step inventories we get a new perspective on the bigger picture, on patterns, selfishness, our responsibility in situations and in this process we are building up an accurate self-appraisal with true self-worth as the reward.

Step 3 - Recovered 1103 show art Step 3 - Recovered 1103

Recovered Podcast

When working on step three we take a look at how acting on self-will means behaving with the exclusion of any consideration for others, focusing only on what we want and ignoring the needs and feelings of others. While we were busy pursuing these impulses, we mostly left a path of destruction behind us, and we definitely lost touch with our conscience and a Higher Power.

Sad, depressed, bored. That’s how many “normal” people think recovering people must feel. This, actually, couldn’t be farther from the truth. Anyone who visits an AA meeting or meets a former addict who is active in the recovery community might be in for a pleasant surprise. Recovering addicts and alcoholics are not miserable. They are happy, content, and have found new, profound meaning in their lives.

That’s not to say that everything is rainbows and unicorns for recovered alcoholics. Trials and hardships are a part of everyone’s life. The difference is that people in active recovery have tools for coping and a support system that helps them through the tough times. It has been my experience that the 12 steps and the fellowship make for a beautiful way of life.
