Envy - Recovered 1082 show art Envy - Recovered 1082

Recovered Podcast

People driven by envy carry a large boulder on their shoulders for all to see and touch. Everybody sees or senses it except the person who is being tormented by its consistent whisper. Envy will drive other people away from us when what we really need is to be involved in a recovering community to heal. Because recovery takes place in a community, envy ensures isolation which can lead to failure.

Detachment - Recovered 1081 show art Detachment - Recovered 1081

Recovered Podcast

For friends and family of a person dealing with alcohol or drug addiction, detachment can be a difficult concept to grasp. In the context of the Al-Anon program, "detach with love" is the idea that the family has to let go of their loved one's problem. It gives you permission to let them experience any consequences associated with their drinking or drug use and focus on your own health and well-being.

Recovered Podcast

When people decide to give up an addiction, they are agreeing to make a major change to their life. The benefits of such a dramatic alteration of course can be wonderful, but it will be a step into the unknown. The same can be said for the al anon. Change, even for the better, can be frightening.

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

We are reluctant to change. It may be more that we’re afraid of change, so starting something new is impossible. The fact that others tell us that change is beneficial does little to stop the fear of change. Overcoming the fear is a unique and personal process that we have to go through on our own. This does not mean we cannot rely on the advice and encouragement of others. Indeed, it is in listening to stories that we may be motivated to start making important changes in our own life. So, recognizing patterns is first and foremost the initial step that people in recovery need to take.

What comes first to mind when you hear the expression “Old Behaviors”?
What are some of your old behaviors that were self destructive?

When you were new, how did you learn you needed to change?
What did you need to change to stay sober?
What part of the program helped you identify old behaviors?
What part of the program helped you change old behaviors into new ones?

What stops you from changing self destructive attitudes?
Some examples may be:
Stubbornness: needing to always be right
People pleasing: at the cost of your own happiness or health
Obsessing about perfection
Blaming: inability to accept responsibility for your own mistakes
Procrastination
Inability or refusing to ask for help
Fear of taking healthy risks
Negative self talk
Self guilt and feeling undeserving of good things in life

For you, when an old behavior is recognized, what do you do that is healthy for you?

What is most likely to trigger old behaviors today?
What are your triggers?
How do you replace negative habits?

Do you think about your old self and feel guilt and remorse?
What is stinking thinking?
How do you fight these emotions?

Have you changed an old behavior into an asset?
