Even in ideal circumstances, addiction recovery can be difficult. Add a pandemic into the mix, and things can start to feel overwhelming.

COVID-19 presents unique challenges for all of us. We find that being at home, with little to no access to in-person meetings, is creating hardships and challenges for us in recovery.

Patience Versus Tolerance - Recovered 1084 show art Patience Versus Tolerance - Recovered 1084

Recovered Podcast

It's a subtle difference that has vastly different outcomes. With patience, you will eventually reach your goal. Tolerance, however, will only serve to keep you stuck in the status quo. Patience is you allowing others time to rise to the challenge; tolerance is accepting whatever mediocrity they give you.

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.

Changes - Recovered 1080 show art Changes - Recovered 1080

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.

Sponsorship is not about relating to another individual.
It is about getting better someone else’s way.

Everyone is told to get a sponsor
Not everyone is told how to get a sponsor

But there are some guidelines on how to get a sponsor
We are going to talk about that tonight.

I think a sponsor is to help someone work the 12 steps.

In you opinion...

Is it ever too late to get a sponsor? 11

How does sponsorship help the sponsor? 12
