I first experienced “Popsicle Sticks” at the Thursday Midnight night meeting at the Northwest Alano Club in Wayne Michigan. At first I hated it, then I got used to it, then it became my favorite meeting.

Self-care looks different for everyone, and that’s okay.

Recovered Podcast

It is no more cowardly to use help in recovering from a drinking problem, than it is, to use a crutch if you have a broken leg. A crutch is a beautiful thing, to those who need it.

Recovered Podcast

The rhythm of our own special routine has a soothing effect, and an apt principle around which to organize some orderliness is—yes, “First Things First.”

Recovered Podcast

Serenity is like a gyroscope that lets us keep our balance no matter what turbulence swirls around us. And that is a state of mind worth aiming for.

When we stopped drinking, we were told repeatedly to get A.A. people’s telephone numbers, and instead of drinking, to phone or text these people.

Recovered Podcast

Some of us insist that it was never the availability of the beverage that led us to drink, any more than the immediate unavailability kept us from that drink we really wanted. We live in a drinking society and we cannot avoid the presence of alcoholic beverages forever.

Today, most all of our activities revolve around technology. Social media is the new norm of communication, and most people would not be able to work or complete daily tasks without their devices. Most people have some type of social media: whether it is Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, or a similar platform. Social media has become a way that people interact with the world. “”Social media are increasingly affecting people’s everyday behavior, including their attitudes toward health and recovery.”

Ok, here is the question for tonight,
Is it possible to engage in recovery and safely connect with others through social media? The understanding of addiction as a medical condition has helped many individuals step out of shame. This shame that used to keep their condition from being shared. While isolation and lack of support can make addiction worse, connecting with other people and gaining a support system are proven to help individuals recover. While a sense of feeling connected is an important part of recovery, tonight, we want to talk about both the negative and positive outcomes of social media.

What forms of social media do you use in your recovery program?

What are the negatives of social media and your recovery?
What are some of the positives of social media and recovery?

How has your recovery toolbox changed with technology in your program?
What did you used to use but no longer use in you program?
What are your favorite
Web sites,
apps,
social media,
Podcasts
How do you use them?

What do you see in the future as far as recovery and technology?
