Joe and Charlie Part 5 - Recovered 961
Release Date: 12/08/2018
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...info_outline Forgiveness - Recovered 1304
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...info_outline Fellowship of the Spirit 8 of 8 - Recovered 1303

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.

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.

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.

You will see several references on this site to "Joe & Charlie". Their names are sometimes heard at local Twelve Step meetings. So, who exactly are Joe and Charlie? They were two long-recovered alcoholics who traveled the world for several decades, sharing their insights into the Big Book of AA. Because all Twelve Step programs are derived from the AA Big Book, I suspect their recordings might help anyone in ANY Twelve Step program....not just AA.
The Big Book Study (officially called "The Big Book Comes Alive") recordings are not conference-approved literature. Any sponsee interested in listening to the series should ask their sponsor first. I can recommend the talks with confidence because many long-sober speakers have openly given credit to Joe and Charlie with their own recovery. I have heard people say said they never really "got" how Twelve Step recovery works until they heard the free-wheeling and good-natured recordings of Joe P and Charlie McQ. I know that was true for me.
