Popsicle Sticks is not really a topic but rather a style of meeting here in Southeast Michigan. Tonight, this show will be presented in the form of a popsicle stick meeting. A popsicle stick meeting is a meeting where we let our higher power determine what we need to share on. Here in the studio, we have a can full of popsicle sticks. Each stick has a recovery topic written on it. We will take turns, randomly picking a stick and then sharing on that topic that was chosen. Tonight, we do popsicle sticks Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on...

Recovery Goals - Recovered 1053 show art Recovery Goals - Recovered 1053

Recovered Podcast

In our program, it’s our responsibility to make plans. Making plans help us to achieve goals. Goals to improve our well being. Goals to help us be happy, joyous, and free. We are told, it is okay to plan, just that we should be careful not to plan the outcomes. We can make a plan, we should just be careful that our plan doesn't turn into an expectation. An expectation that is unreasonably high can turn into a premeditated resentment. And resentments are dangerous for us alcoholics. Tonight, we talk about Making Recovery Goals. Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self...

Alienation and Loneliness - Recovered 1051 show art Alienation and Loneliness - Recovered 1051

Recovered Podcast

Feelings of alienation and loneliness are difficult, but they are also normal. They are a part of the human experience shared by all, whether recovering or not. Many deep thinking philosophers have attempted to make meaning of it these emotions. We all try to find ways to bear what sometimes feels unbearable. Spiritual traditions also describe these negative emotions. Some have talked about these feelings as a sense of disconnection from the divine. The fact that so many philosophers and spiritual figures have grappled with alienation and loneliness is an indication of how pervasive these...

How often have you sworn off your drug of choice only to pick it up moments or hours later with a new found explanation for doing so? How often have you convinced yourself that your actions were right, even justified, when you knew deep inside that they weren’t? How often have you battled back and forth in your brain between what you should and shouldn’t do until you finally find the excuse that would let you give in? Tonight, we talk about rationalization.

Recovered Podcast

Powerlessness is not meant to disempower. Although you may be powerless in the fact that you struggle with addiction and have no control over it, you are not powerless over the actions you can take because of that knowledge. By accepting the things you cannot change and understanding that it’s possible to change the things that are within your control, you open yourself up to options that can help you heal. Tonight, we talk about Powerlessness Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions.  If you would like to join us,...

The inherent value of identification cannot be ignored when dealing with those suffering from substance use disorder. Until the suffering person is able to lower their guard, lower their sense of distrust and sense of difference enough to engage in treatment and recovery, no positive movement will take place. In order for the individual to do that, they must trust the person trying to help them. That trust comes from believing that the people trying to help know how they feel. They know what it’s like to suffer and they truly do understand what it’s like to in early 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 three ways.

  1. Episode Sponsorship  We will recognize you by first name only at the top, mid, and end of the episode.  Any amount will qualify.
  2. Premium Membership  This is the single most effective way to support the show.  Watch the video in its entirety and learn how to become Premium
  3. Sustaining Partners  We have three ways in which you can participate in this 12-step mission We invite you to be a partner is this work.
