Popsicle Sticks - Recovered 1248 show art Popsicle Sticks - Recovered 1248

Recovered Podcast

Popsicle Sticks is not really a topic but rather a style of meeting here in Southeast Michigan.  Tonight, this show will be presented in the form of a popsicle stick meeting.   A popsicle stick meeting is a meeting where we let our higher power determine what we need to share.  Here in our virtual studio, we have a can full of popsicle sticks.  Each stick has a recovery topic written on it.  We will take turns, randomly picking a stick and then sharing on that topic that was chosen. Tonight, we do popsicle sticks 3:25 To skip the intro This week,  Todd, Betsy,...

Fear - Recovered 1246 show art Fear - Recovered 1246

Recovered Podcast

When people give up abusing alcohol and drugs it does not mean that their trials in life are over. They are still going to have to deal with the ups and downs of life just like everyone else. The only difference will be that they won’t be hiding from reality through substance abuse. One of the things that people in recovery are almost certain to face is fear. It is unavoidable. Those in recovery are no longer interested in hiding from fear. Their focus is on learning to manage it effectively. Fear can be defined as a distressing emotion aroused by impending pain or danger. The trigger for...

The Fellowship - Recovered 1244 show art The Fellowship - Recovered 1244

Recovered Podcast

Alcoholics Anonymous refers to the fellowship as their group of people dedicated to a 12-step lifestyle which includes meetings and service work.  It’s not just about the meetings for them, it’s about the gathering of the people in the meetings. People who are there to support you and who need your support.  They will become a valued circle of friendship and fellowship in your recovery. One of the most important benefits of friendship and fellowship in recovery is the positive support you will receive as you work through the challenges you may face after starting your recovery...

Serenity - Recovered 1242 show art Serenity - Recovered 1242

Recovered Podcast

If you’ve begun your recovery from drugs and alcohol, you’ve already taken the first step toward finding serenity.

During recovery, on the other hand, you’ll learn about inner peace and spiritual healing – and how serenity can help bring you calm as you cope with the ups and downs of life without drugs and/or alcohol. Tonight, we talk about Serenity For information on the Book "Powerless Not Helpless" 3:23 To Skip the Intro This week,  Kendra, Karen,...

Higher Power - Recovered 1240 show art Higher Power - Recovered 1240

Recovered Podcast

Do you believe in God? What about a higher power? If you aren’t a religious person, the idea of a higher power being part of your recovery can make you feel hesitant about moving forward. But the truth is, following a higher power in recovery doesn’t have to be based on traditional or structured religion. Still, starting a program of recovery can be difficult if you don’t have a firm understanding of what a higher power is. Finding a higher power in recovery takes faith, and having faith in something can take time and patience. Just like going to your first meeting, belief in a higher...
