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...info_outline Setting Boundaries - Recovered 1072
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...info_outline Self Care - Recovered 1070
Once you get sober, it can be incredibly easy to get caught up in the chaos of daily life, and forget that taking care of yourself is not an option, but a priority. Taking care of yourself sounds like an easy and simple task, but the reality is that most people struggle to find healthy ways to take care of themselves, whether they’re in recovery or not.

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...info_outline
The disease of addiction clouded how addicts related to others. It was a disease of perception. Isolated and lost in the self; they did not know how to communicate as addicts. But, in recovery, we learn how to overcome barriers to communication. It's like learning how to talk once again.
Recovery is a second childhood. Addicts learn how to be part of society and live with life as it stands. They do this by understanding themselves and others. Like everything else, they get good at it over time. It will be a painful, scary, and embarrassing process in the beginning. As they progress, they'll realise like with recovery, it was all worth the effort.

As a result of active addiction, addicts have lost the ability to communicate with others. A great majority of relapses have resulted from poor communication skills. Addicts have been unable to relate to their loved ones in mutual understanding.
