Powerlessness - Recovered 1047 show art Powerlessness - Recovered 1047

Recovered Podcast

Powerlessness is not meant to disempower. Although you may be powerless in the fact that you struggle with addiction and have no control over it, you are not powerless over the actions you can take because of that knowledge. By accepting the things you cannot change and understanding that it’s possible to change the things that are within your control, you open yourself up to options that can help you heal. Tonight, we talk about Powerlessness Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions.  If you would like to join us,...

Transitional Housing - Recovered 1046 show art Transitional Housing - Recovered 1046

Recovered Podcast

Transitional Housing programs provide structured living settings where newly-sober addicts and alcoholics learn basic skills for drug-free living.

Transitional Housing can provide a simple way off the streets and into solid recovery. Tonight, we talk about Prayer and Transitional Housing. 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. ...

Prayer and Meditation - Recovered 1045 show art Prayer and Meditation - Recovered 1045

Recovered Podcast

In the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, where the 12-step program is outlined, Step 11 reads: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for the knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out. If you’re new and these words seem like a tall order, rest assured that, like all the other steps, Step 11 can be practiced at a very basic level to begin with. Tonight, we talk about Prayer and Meditation Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions....

Tolerance - Recovered 1043 show art Tolerance - Recovered 1043

Recovered Podcast

Tolerance is one of the most valuable skills to be learned early on in recovery. Growth does not lie in an ability to avoid difficulties but in our ability to live with discomfort at times and learn how to pass through difficulties. The key to tolerance is to accept a certain amount of suffering as part of the human experience without judgment and with the critical understanding that it will pass.

Step 4 Inventory - Recovered 1042 show art Step 4 Inventory - Recovered 1042

Recovered Podcast

The Fourth Step brings us to a specific course of action that the AA Big Book describes as “vigorous.” It is a “personal house-cleaning which many of us had never attempted.” The Fourth Step strengthens the decision we made in the Third Step and helps us carry it out. Unless we make an effort to face the things which had been blocking us, our decision to turn our will and our lives over to God can “have little permanent effect.” Tonight, we talk about Step 4 Inventory Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions....

Frustration- Recovered 1041 show art Frustration- Recovered 1041

Recovered Podcast

When lack of results toward recovery goals brings about increasing frustration, it’s all too easy to get so caught up in the emotion that you miss out on the bigger picture. Recovery isn’t a straight-line progression of one success after another. Often, the learning curve takes a number of twists and turns before flattening out and heading toward a desired goal. Tonight, we talk about Frustration 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.

Happiness - Recovered 1040 show art Happiness - Recovered 1040

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...

Now, back to the show…

Tonight, the topic is 

Recovery in the Digital Age

When we use digital media, we are responsible for our own anonymity

and for protecting that of others. When we post, text, or blog, we should

consider whether we are publishing at the public level. When we break

our anonymity in these forums, we may inadvertently break the anonymity

of others.

Conference approved literature clearly defines how to protect anonymity.  Conference approved literature states:

 A.A.s do not publicly identify themselves as A.A. members using their full names and/or full-face photos.

What technology tools do you use in recovery?

How does it help?

How do you use it?

How do you get it?

What about

  • Google groups
  • Texting
  • Facebook
  • Online recovery support podcast
  • Online meetings 
  • Audible books
  • CDs
  • Phone calls
  • Group texting apps
  • email

What about open talks?

Isn’t that breaking anonymity?

Is there anything special you use with sponsees

What do you recommend to new people?

How does technology hinder your recovery program?

Are you concerned with privacy?

How do you protect your anonymity?

Do you worry about “Normal” people finding out you are in recovery when online?

 

Does your home group have a technology outreach?
