Recovered Podcast

Anyone who has battled a substance use disorder would have to admit that it took a significant toll on their relationships. While in the throes of active addiction, all energy is focused on meeting the demands of the substance. This, unfortunately, leads to actions and words that cause harm to loved ones. Over the course of the substance use period, loved ones stop believing anything you told them. Trust was fractured. Now that you are in recovery, attention is directed toward restoring those relationships and mending the broken trust. In fact, the process of making amends to loved ones in...

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. Tonight, we talk about Forgiveness 3:25 To skip the intro This week, Jennifer, Rebekah, Bryan, Dana, Kim, Tonja, Kendy, Karen, Sean, Tony Made their...

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.

I have come to know a lot of people in different stages of recovery. Some are happy and doing well and some are not. It’s clear that alcohol and drugs don’t lead to happiness. If you have worked the steps, you have learned that you used drugs and alcohol to cope with unwanted feelings. However, it’s been my experience that the amount of time spent sober doesn’t guarantee happiness and wellness, either.

So how do you find a feeling of satisfaction in your life and get over the feeling of depression in recovery? The answer lies within you.

Happiness in recovery is not a guarantee. The reality is that everyone is responsible for their own happiness. However, for some, it’s not easy for them to reach it. The path to happiness requires work on our part and doesn’t require a lot of money or worldly success.

Let’s go to you first...

What was first to mind when you heard happiness was going to be the topic? Why?

What is happiness?
Can happiness last?
Is it guaranteed?

What made you happy before program?
What made you happy in early recovery?
What makes you happy today?

What steps help with happiness and why?
What slogans help with happiness and why?
What prayers help with happiness and why?

How do you get happy?
How do you take care of yourself?
How do you give back?
Who are your loved ones that can bring you happiness?
What achieved goals gave you happiness?
How does forgiving give you happiness?

What is the difference between happiness and joy?
What os the difference between satisfaction and happiness?
What is the difference between serenity and happiness?
