Recovered Podcast

In our program, it’s our responsibility to make plans. Making plans help us to achieve goals. Goals to improve our well being. Goals to help us be happy, joyous, and free. We are told, it is okay to plan, just that we should be careful not to plan the outcomes. We can make a plan, we should just be careful that our plan doesn't turn into an expectation. An expectation that is unreasonably high can turn into a premeditated resentment. And resentments are dangerous for us alcoholics. Tonight, we talk about Making Recovery Goals. Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self...

Alienation and Loneliness - Recovered 1051 show art Alienation and Loneliness - Recovered 1051

Recovered Podcast

Feelings of alienation and loneliness are difficult, but they are also normal. They are a part of the human experience shared by all, whether recovering or not. Many deep thinking philosophers have attempted to make meaning of it these emotions. We all try to find ways to bear what sometimes feels unbearable. Spiritual traditions also describe these negative emotions. Some have talked about these feelings as a sense of disconnection from the divine. The fact that so many philosophers and spiritual figures have grappled with alienation and loneliness is an indication of how pervasive these...

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.

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.  If you would like to join us, there are three ways.

The Fourth Step is necessary to continue the progress we have made in the first three Steps. The AA Big Book uses the analogy of taking a business inventory to describe our Fourth Step work. The purpose of an inventory is to identify the stock that is old, obsolete or spoiled so that it can be thrown out and replaced with stock that can be used or sold. Our moral inventory serves the same purpose.
