Recovered Podcast

People driven by envy carry a large boulder on their shoulders for all to see and touch. Everybody sees or senses it except the person who is being tormented by its consistent whisper. Envy will drive other people away from us when what we really need is to be involved in a recovering community to heal. Because recovery takes place in a community, envy ensures isolation which can lead to failure.

Detachment - Recovered 1081 show art Detachment - Recovered 1081

Recovered Podcast

For friends and family of a person dealing with alcohol or drug addiction, detachment can be a difficult concept to grasp. In the context of the Al-Anon program, "detach with love" is the idea that the family has to let go of their loved one's problem. It gives you permission to let them experience any consequences associated with their drinking or drug use and focus on your own health and well-being.

Recovered Podcast

When people decide to give up an addiction, they are agreeing to make a major change to their life. The benefits of such a dramatic alteration of course can be wonderful, but it will be a step into the unknown. The same can be said for the al anon. Change, even for the better, can be frightening.

The Big Book

The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

As a self-centered person,

I only see myself as the centre of everything

At my worst,

I do not consider what my actions would mean to others.

The big book says that

being self-centered is  

in direct conflict with our new way of living in recovery.

Let’s start with self-centeredness Chrissy

What does being self-centered mean to you?

How has recovery helped?

How does self-centeredness manifest itself today?

What part of the program do you use to combat this?

When I’m acting selfish

I want to receive more than give.

When I’m really sick,

I will give only if I think

that the return will be larger than my giving

But the book says…

Selfishness! That, we think, is the root of our troubles.

The Book also says…

Above everything, we alcoholics must be rid of this selfishness. We must, or it kills us!

So this is about as important of a subject as it gets.

What is selfishness to you and how does it differ from being self-centered?

What part of the program helps to defeat this selfishness?

Has the program made you less selfish than before?  How?

What does “This is a selfish program” mean to you.

How do you know when you have gone from self care to selfishness?

How do you do self care?

How do you know when self care has moved into being selfish?

Who would you rather be around,

Self-centered Mark or

Selfish Mark

Why?

If this character defect is so dangerous, would you point it out in someone else if you spot it?

How would you do that?
