Recovered Podcast

Sad, depressed, bored. That’s how many “normal” people think recovering people must feel. This, actually, couldn’t be farther from the truth. Anyone who visits an AA meeting or meets a former addict who is active in the recovery community might be in for a pleasant surprise. Recovering addicts and alcoholics are not miserable. They are happy, content, and have found new, profound meaning in their lives. Tonight, we talk about Happiness Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions.  If you would like to join us,...

Guilt - Recovered 1038 show art Guilt - Recovered 1038

Recovered Podcast

For many, the physical and mental restoration that is worked towards in recovery is only half the battle; there’s often a lingering effect of guilt and shame that also must be worked through. Addiction in and of itself is a secretive disease – and along with it being portrayed as a “weakness” or a “failing,” it’s not surprising that many in recovery still struggle with shame, guilt and stigma. Tonight, we talk about Guilt Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions.  If you would like to join us, there are...

Sponsorship - Recovered 1034 show art Sponsorship - Recovered 1034

Recovered Podcast

As a newcomer, you will generally want to look for a sponsor who has been sober for a good amount of time and who is available to work with someone in early recovery. A sponsor is someone who you will exchange phone numbers with, talk to regularly, and use as your guide to working the steps. It is common for sponsors to ask sponsees in early recovery to call or text them frequently, meet with them regularly, to read 12-step literature, and do step-work. Tonight, we talk about Sponsorship Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside...

Forgiveness - Recovered 1032 show art Forgiveness - Recovered 1032

Recovered Podcast

Regardless of how much time has passed since you were harmed or wronged by someone, it can be challenging to genuinely forgive. However, forgiveness is an integral part of addiction recovery, and being able to set aside past hurts is an important aspect of long-term treatment. The person holding a grudge is almost always the person most negatively affected by it, and that not being able to let go of old frustrations can lead to relapses. While it may take significant time and effort, and may require the help of a counselor trained in forgiveness, letting go of past hurts is critical for...

Honesty - Recovered 1030 show art Honesty - Recovered 1030

Recovered Podcast

Of all the moral characteristics, honesty is one of the most respected. It is also the spiritual principle behind step one. Many people in recovery live by the mantra “we are as sick as our secrets.” Individuals need to pay special attention to honesty in recovery because they have to be truthful to others, and above all they have to be honest with themselves. People who do not develop honesty as a personal quality are more prone to relapse. This is why honesty has to become an everyday habit until it becomes second nature. Tonight, we talk about Honesty. Our generous Recovered Podcast...

More Episodes

When you started recovery, you probably thought that drugs and alcohol were your biggest enemy. You fought hard in early recovery to rid yourself from drugs and alcohol. You probably believed that once you got away from them, your life would be easy again. You would be finally out of trouble. But there is so much more in recovery.

Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions.  If you would like to join us, there are three ways.

  1. Episode Sponsorship  We will recognize you by first name only at the top, mid, and end of the episode.  Any amount will qualify.
  2. Premium Membership  This is the single most effective way to support the show.  Watch the video in its entirety and learn how to become Premium
  3. Sustaining Partners  We have three ways in which you can participate in this 12-step mission We invite you to be a partner is this work.

In early recovery, you learned that overcoming addiction is not easy. It is not just about getting the drugs out of your system — you need to develop a whole new relationship with yourself through meetings and personal growth. As it turns out, addiction isn’t as much about the drugs and alcohol as it is about your physical and mental make-up and your emotional status. Recovery requires a complete personal lifestyle overhaul.

First to mind?
Where do you want to start?
What do you want to say?
What do you want to bring to the new person?

What do you want to get out of recovery?
Did you think that was possible?

What event event, what circumstances, made you believe that recovery was possible for you?

When did you realize that you wanted more than just sobriety?
What was it that you wanted?
How did you work toward it?
How did the program help you work toward that goal?

We can also watch people grow.
One of the best thing about recovery is watching people grow.
Tonight we received an email and I think we can relate to the joy of watching someone grow in this email
Lisa...can you read the email from Jennifer?

How has the program helped you grow spiritually?

Two things that every new person faces and needs to grow out of are:
The desire to escape
Fear

Many of us just wanted to escape from life and we found that drugs and alcohol were effective to achieve that goal.
Have you ever suffered with the desire to escape?
How do you deal with this urge?
How has the program helped? (Steps, prayers, fellowship, sponsor, Higher Power, etc.)

When you were new, what were you afraid of?
How has the program helped? Steps, prayers, fellowship, sponsor, Higher Power, etc.)
Today, how do you deal with fear?

They say, Addiction recovery is a long journey to yourself.
What does this mean to you?

Another piece of advice is Personal growth is a lifelong process.
What does this mean to you?

Another slogan is Idle hands are the devil’s workshop.
How do you stay busy, what hobbies do you have?
What hobbies would you recommend for the new person?

Life needs momentum — you have to be working toward something.
What goals are you working on today?
What goals would you recommend for the new person?

What service work are you involved in now?
What service work would you recommend for the new person?

How do you stay healthy and grow?
