Recovered Podcast

Forgiveness is a major part of recovery because as long as you remain angry at the people who have hurt you, you’re inflicting new suffering on yourself. Anger isn’t good for you. Anger and resentment can keep you feeling like a victim. It’s giving someone who has hurt you in the past the power to keep hurting you. It’s important to remember that forgiving others isn’t something you do for them but rather something you do for yourself.

Envy - Recovered 1302 show art Envy - Recovered 1302

Recovered Podcast

Several faiths and philosophical teachings have put forth writings that note the harm that can be caused by envy. It is seen as an emotion that results in misery. Aristotle refers to Envy as “the pain caused by the good fortune of others.” One of the first things we have to do to overcome our envy is to begin letting go of our resentments. We must look at the people we envy and try to view them through a lens constructed of kindness, compassion, empathy, and possibly even friendship. Tonight, we talk about Envy.

Dealing With Conflict - Recovered 1299 show art Dealing With Conflict - Recovered 1299

Recovered Podcast

Every human has to deal with conflict. This is unavoidable, as people have competing needs and desires. This means that it will be wise for people to learn how to cope with conflict as well as learn how to avoid it. Sometimes, avoiding this type of interaction can be negative, because it means the individual is refusing to face their problems. Dealing with conflict is an important skill for people in recovery to learn. Tonight, we talk about Dealing with Conflict.

Many relapse prevention tools have been created to help people trying to maintain sobriety. The Acronym H.A.L.T. is helpful for identifying potential relapse triggers. In recovery, you are encouraged to stop—or H.A.L.T.—and pay attention to the smaller, everyday triggers that can lead to risky behaviors and potential relapse.

Progress Not Perfection - Recovered 1294 show art Progress Not Perfection - Recovered 1294

Recovered Podcast

When people in recovery talk about progress not perfection it does not mean that people should not be trying to be the best they can be. The point is that perfection is too high a goal and that people should aim for something slightly less ambitious. If the individual makes an honest attempt at overcoming their character flaws they will be moving closer to perfection, but it is not likely that they will ever fully complete this journey. Humans are fallible, and the only important thing is that they try their best. By setting the more realistic goal of progress rather than perfection the...

The Big Book

The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

My will

can get me in trouble.

I usually set goals

based on desire.

My higher power wants

to give me what I need

But, I want what I want,

not what I need.

and there is the problem

and I’m left dazed and confused.

My will usually seeks pleasure, avoids pain,

and generally keeps me concerned with

self and not anyone else.  

I think my higher  wants me to be concerned for

other people first.

So, I need a program to help me align

my will with God’s will

But how do I do this?

Well, that is the topic tonight

God’s Will and My Will

Cristie, let’s start with you tonight…

Let’s start with Self Will

What do you think “self will” or “My Will” means?

When do you think self will is good for you?

When do you think self will is bad for you?

What do you think is a healthy “self will”?

When do you think when “self will” becomes unhealthy?

How do you think self will and desires relate?

The 11th steps tells us that

we are to pray only for God’s will.

We may have also heard the prayer “Thy Will, not My will”

What do you think Thy Will or “God’s will” means?

Some people say,

the program gives me what I need

Not what I want.

What are your thoughts on needs versus wants

and how they relate with happiness.

Have you ever sensed God’s Will in your life? Explain, how did you feel, what did you do?

How do you use the program to align your will with God’s will?

We have calls!

Socrates once said

"Life contains but two tragedies.

One is not to get your heart's desire;

the other is to get it"?

let’s talk about this

Have you ever accomplished a goal and it felt empty?

Have you ever attempted to accomplish a goal and failed and you felt resentful?

What happens to you when your will doesn’t match up with God’s will?

Let’s talk about some recovery tools that can help us comprehend God’s will for us.

The acceptance statement and the serenity prayer

Are you familiar with the Acceptance statement on page 417 of the big book?

Acceptance is the answer to ALL of my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation- some fact of my life- unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing, happens in God's world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept my life completely on life's terms, I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes.

How does the acceptance statement help?

What about the serenity prayer?

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,

And the wisdom to know the difference.

Does the serenity prayer help? How?
