Forgiveness - Recovered 1304 show art Forgiveness - Recovered 1304

Recovered Podcast

Forgiveness is a major part of recovery because as long as you remain angry at the people who have hurt you, you’re inflicting new suffering on yourself. Anger isn’t good for you. Anger and resentment can keep you feeling like a victim. It’s giving someone who has hurt you in the past the power to keep hurting you. It’s important to remember that forgiving others isn’t something you do for them but rather something you do for yourself.

Envy - Recovered 1302 show art Envy - Recovered 1302

Recovered Podcast

Several faiths and philosophical teachings have put forth writings that note the harm that can be caused by envy. It is seen as an emotion that results in misery. Aristotle refers to Envy as “the pain caused by the good fortune of others.” One of the first things we have to do to overcome our envy is to begin letting go of our resentments. We must look at the people we envy and try to view them through a lens constructed of kindness, compassion, empathy, and possibly even friendship. Tonight, we talk about Envy.

Dealing With Conflict - Recovered 1299 show art Dealing With Conflict - Recovered 1299

Recovered Podcast

Every human has to deal with conflict. This is unavoidable, as people have competing needs and desires. This means that it will be wise for people to learn how to cope with conflict as well as learn how to avoid it. Sometimes, avoiding this type of interaction can be negative, because it means the individual is refusing to face their problems. Dealing with conflict is an important skill for people in recovery to learn. Tonight, we talk about Dealing with Conflict.

Recovered Podcast

Many relapse prevention tools have been created to help people trying to maintain sobriety. The Acronym H.A.L.T. is helpful for identifying potential relapse triggers. In recovery, you are encouraged to stop—or H.A.L.T.—and pay attention to the smaller, everyday triggers that can lead to risky behaviors and potential relapse. The acronym stands for Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired Tonight, we talk about HALT.

Progress Not Perfection - Recovered 1294 show art Progress Not Perfection - Recovered 1294

Recovered Podcast

When people in recovery talk about progress not perfection it does not mean that people should not be trying to be the best they can be. The point is that perfection is too high a goal and that people should aim for something slightly less ambitious. If the individual makes an honest attempt at overcoming their character flaws they will be moving closer to perfection, but it is not likely that they will ever fully complete this journey. Humans are fallible, and the only important thing is that they try their best. By setting the more realistic goal of progress rather than perfection the...

When we first start a recovery program, we’re often told to take things slow. We don’t want to overwhelm ourselves and jeopardize our recovery by taking on too much too soon. There comes a time, however, when we have to start thinking about what we want out of life. What do we want out of life? Ambition can be the greatest antidote to stagnation. It’s what got us off drugs and alcohol, into recovery and back on our feet and we should never stop thinking about our futures.

We don’t have to shrink from life because we’re in recovery. If we use the tools and knowledge we’ve gathered in our recovery program and keep up with our therapy and meetings, there is virtually no limit to what we can do. This is just a reminder of our extraordinary potential and the fact our recovery is not a hindrance, but rather an opportunity. It’s true that we should take things slow at first, but once we get to a place where we can start thinking about ourselves, we should be asking ourselves one question: “What’s next?” Ambition begets accomplishment and accomplishment begets confidence, emotional strength and growth.

Before program, did you have ambitions?
What were they?
Did your disease affect what you were ambitious for?
How did your addiction affect your ambitions?

In early recovery, what were you ambitious for?
How did the program help or hinder?
Did your ambitions change with experience in recovery?

What are the things in life that will make you satisfied and
contented?
What are the traits that a person must have to achieve his/her
goals?
Why do you think people have ambitions?

When are ambitions good?
When are they bad?

What is your greatest recovery ambition in life? Why?
How important is your ambition to you and your recovery?

Which of your goals have you already achieved in recovery?
How would you feel when you have achieved your goal?
What will you feel or do if you fail to achieve one of your goals?

Quote from Matt
It is the doing that makes for continuance. It is not the knowing how the doing is done.
