Honesty - Recovered 1030 show art Honesty - Recovered 1030

Recovered Podcast

Of all the moral characteristics, honesty is one of the most respected. It is also the spiritual principle behind step one. Many people in recovery live by the mantra “we are as sick as our secrets.” Individuals need to pay special attention to honesty in recovery because they have to be truthful to others, and above all they have to be honest with themselves. People who do not develop honesty as a personal quality are more prone to relapse. This is why honesty has to become an everyday habit until it becomes second nature. Tonight, we talk about Honesty.

Much like other areas of life, when we first enter recovery, it’s new and exciting. Unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before, living life in sobriety after years spent toiling away in addiction is exhilarating and we strive for more. But what happens after the novelty of recovery wears off? Complacency in recovery is not uncommon but can become dangerous if you let it take control. Tonight, we talk about Complacency in Recovery 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...

Anger - Recovered 1022 show art Anger - Recovered 1022

Recovered Podcast

Addiction recovery almost always involves dealing with anger. Anger may be directed at oneself, at specific people, or society as a whole. Without learning to process anger in a constructive manner, a person with an addiction cannot move forward in recovery. Abstinence is prescribed for people addicted to drugs and alcohol. So, should alcoholics give up having ambition and setting goals? No. Ambition is not bad. We need to have a healthy relationship with ambition just as we need healthy relationships with all our desires. Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self...

Addiction serves to numb unpleasant thoughts, feelings, and memories. While in recovery, many of these problems that were temporarily self-medicated away once again float to the surface.

Self-discovery techniques are essential in recovery and are often a part of 12 step programs. They serve to help you come to terms with your decisions and understand some of the reasons why you were vulnerable to addiction.

They also allow you to identify the best, most positive parts of yourself and make better use of them while letting go of the past and learning to forgive yourself and others.

What come first to mind?

Before program, did you think you were in touch with yourself, your emotions, your behavior?

How did your using get in the way of understanding yourself?
Did you use to medicate your feelings?
What feelings are most unpleasant to you?

How did you deal with feelings with your family of origin?
How did you express negative feelings with your family when growing up?

When you first came into recovery, did you have a hard time moderating your feelings and emotions?
Give examples so that the new person can identify.
