Old Behaviors - Recovered 1073 show art Old Behaviors - Recovered 1073

Recovered Podcast

Think about what comes to mind when you think of patterns or behaviors. Likely it means doing something repetitive, over and over again, often without much thought given to the action. But when you’re in recovery, you can recognize that certain behaviors and attitudes have gotten you into trouble in the past. You learn in recovery that old behaviors from your addictive past have been destructive and that you can make important changes in your new life in sobriety. Tonight, we talk about Old Behaviors Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on...

Setting Boundaries - Recovered 1072 show art Setting Boundaries - Recovered 1072

Recovered Podcast

Your issues with boundaries come from your past. You may have grown up where boundaries were strict and harsh. This could lead to an inability to express your feelings or to keep everyone at arm’s length. Having no boundaries will lead to you and others being enmeshed. When this happens, your roles are interchangeable and blurred and you will not establish your sense of identity. As you get older, your relationships mirror those of the past and history begins to repeat itself. As you fall into the same patterns, you increase your risk of experiencing depression or anxiety and may fall into...

Triggers - Recovered 1066 show art Triggers - Recovered 1066

Recovered Podcast

One of the long-standing obstacles to recovery is the emotional and physical cues that we experience, which make us feel like using alcohol and drugs. These cues are most commonly referred to as triggers, and they can manifest differently for different people. For some, seeing old friends and loved ones is enough to trigger wanting a drink; for others, the stress of performing well at work or school elicits the old feelings of using performance-enhancing substances. Whatever the cause, triggers should be expected—and like many other facets of recovery, expecting and planning for them is the...

So you’ve made the decision to check out a Recovery meeting. Maybe people have been subtly (or not-so-subtly) suggesting you go, maybe you’ve heard good things about Recovery and think it might be able to help you, or maybe you’re just not sure of where else to turn. Whatever your reason, attending your first meeting can be a stressful experience. Will it be a bunch of people smoking cigarettes in a church basement, like in the movies? Will you have to get up and share your whole life story in front of strangers? After meny years of regular Recovery attendance, here’s what I can tell you: No two meetings are exactly the same.
