Fear – Recovered 1236

150 150 Mark S

One thing that we alcoholics and addicts have in common when starting recovery is that we are afraid of the process.  Such fear is nothing to be ashamed of because it is natural. Our brains are hard-wired to become uncomfortable in the face of the unknown. Simply the anticipation of a potentially unpleasant or stressful circumstance causes the brain to go into flight or fight mode. And since fear is always about something that might happen, it is a reaction to an imagined, rather than a real, event.

Tonight, we talk about Fear.

Fear is always about loss; it is present only when there is desire. Fear arises when there is a conflict between what you want, need or love and what might happen if that want, need, or love is not fulfilled. Addressing fears in recovery is important because fears have the power to derail many of your recovery efforts.

Verse 23 – Living Without Fear

Be like nature: accept what is without fear.
A gale does not last all morning; it is only wind.
A cloudburst does not last all day; it is only rain.
Accept the actions of others just as we accept the actions of nature.
Practice the Way in all your affairs; then you can live without fear.
Do not fear success; then you can thrive in success.
Do not fear failure; then you can thrive in failure.
How is this possible?
By helping someone else overcome their fear.

The Paradoxes of Recovery – Recovered 1234

150 150 Mark S

People who work good Twelve Step programs have found a spiritual remedy that restores their faith in the universe and all things. They have found peace and reconciliation for their behavior during active addiction, and they have implemented a new system of behaviors and beliefs that seems to address all manner of problems. And whether they realize it or not, they’ve embraced the paradoxes of recovery. 

Tonight, we talk about The Paradox of the Program.

How The Program Works For You – Recovered 1232

150 150 Mark S

If you recently started a recovery program, congratulations! You have gotten over a major hurdle and have the opportunity to set a good foundation for a sober lifestyle. As you progress through your recovery process one day at a time, consider incorporating positive actions of recovery to help you create, and live, a better-than-normal life.

 

A big part of recovering from addiction and living a sober life is being good to yourself. For many people in recovery, taking care of your physical, emotional, and spiritual health becomes the focus of daily life. Rebuilding your life after addiction involves taking positive actions that reinforce your sobriety, and also allow you to feel fulfilled and to experience life in a way that is better than it was when you were in active addiction.

There is magic and miracles in AA.  Go to any meeting long enough you will see people recover from the seemingly hopeless illness of alcoholism.  No one thought they would survive. It took the power of the program to heal us. It is generally considered that the AA program, as embodied in the 12 Steps, works through its emphasis on five important ideas: Honesty, Openness, Connection, Spirituality, and No agenda.
