Envy - Recovered 1082 show art Envy - Recovered 1082

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.

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.

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.

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.
How did you cope with these feelings in early recovery and before you were practicing steps?
