Release Date: 05/30/2018
Popsicle Sticks is not really a topic but rather a style of meeting here in Southeast Michigan. Tonight, this show will be presented in the form of a popsicle stick meeting. A popsicle stick meeting is a meeting where we let our higher power determine what we need to share. Here in our virtual studio, we have a can full of popsicle sticks. Each stick has a recovery topic written on it. We will take turns, randomly picking a stick and then sharing on that topic that was chosen. Tonight, we do popsicle sticks 3:25 To skip the intro This week, Todd, Betsy,...info_outline Popsicle Sticks - Recovered 1248
When people give up abusing alcohol and drugs it does not mean that their trials in life are over. They are still going to have to deal with the ups and downs of life just like everyone else. The only difference will be that they won’t be hiding from reality through substance abuse. One of the things that people in recovery are almost certain to face is fear. It is unavoidable. Those in recovery are no longer interested in hiding from fear. Their focus is on learning to manage it effectively. Fear can be defined as a distressing emotion aroused by impending pain or danger.
