Hobbies are important for everyone: they can act as a fun and healthy outlet, or even something that brings more meaning to your life. But they’re crucial when you’re in recovery. Early in sobriety, you may only have energy for therapy and self-care. But as time goes on, you’ll need to spend the time you used to fill with alcohol or drugs in healthier ways — that’s where hobbies come in. We’re not here to tell you what hobbies to pick up: that can be an exciting journey for you to go on! But we do want you to understand how having new hobbies can benefit and shape your recovery:...

When you’ve been through the trials and tribulations of active addiction, you may have a hard time moving on. Those caught up in substance abuse often make poor choices and hurt others in the process. Sometimes, the 12-step recovery process can bring up shameful memories and negative thoughts about those actions. This is why self-compassion is crucial for those in recovery. When used as a recovery tool, self-compassion has shown to help people deal with the stresses of early recovery and better manage their emotions. It involves being mindful, but the practice also boosts self-esteem,...

The concept of “spiritual awakening” has many meanings. Keeping it simple, a spiritual awakening is really just a psychic change that, among other things, eliminates our obsession to drink. For some it can be quite a powerful and immediate experience, for others it is an ongoing concurrent part of working the 12 steps. The exact wording of step 12 is: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs. Tonight, we talk about Step 12. 3:25 To skip the intro This week, ...

Exploring spirituality in the 11th Step of AA Alcoholics anonymous can be a wonderful and illuminating experience. We now have a solid frame of reference built by the previous Ten Steps of AA. Our recovery has helped us to stay sober one day at a time and has allowed us to expand our capacity for new information about ourselves, and the world around us. This open-mindedness is one of the greatest things about AA. In AA the concept of a “higher power” and “God as we understand him” really affords every single person, from every walk of life, an unlimited choice of spiritual beliefs and...

The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

 

the dictionary says that worry is a state of anxiety and uncertainty

over actual or potential problems.

Worry refers to the thoughts, images and emotions

of a negative nature

in which mental attempts are made[vague]

to avoid anticipated potential threats.[1]

We commonly worry about personal issues

such as health or finances,

or broader issues such as environmental pollution and social or technological change.

Most people experience short-lived periods of worry in their lives without incident;

indeed, a moderate amount of worrying may even have positive effects,

if it prompts people to take precautions

But we are alcoholics, so I suspect our story will include the lack of said precautions

So let’s go to you first ??, and let’s talk about worry before program and what that looked like to you.

Before program, what was your most common worry?  How did you cope?

What is the opposite of worry?

How do you deal with worry in recovery?
