The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

Creativity can be defined as the ability to generate or recognize ideas, alternatives, or possibilities.

Is it possible to be creative in recovery without having to stimulate your mind with alcohol or drugs?

My Opinion?

Of course it is!

The problem is that you may have to convince your brain of this at first. And that can be a bit of a challenge.

But I want to know what you think.

Let’s go to you matt

what types of creative things are you involved in?

Where you afraid that your art would suffer?

Did you know any creative types in recovery before you came in?

What was it like when you first came into recovery and you were new?

Did your creativity suffer?

Did recovery take time away from your art?

What about fuzzy thinking in early recovery, how did that affect you?

What about PAWS? Did you suffer from Post Acute Withdrawl Symptom?

What were some of your experiences?

What were your fears?

How did others in the field react to your sobriety?

Did you have support from fellow sober artists?

Did you have to give up some relationships?
