Self Care – Recovered 1070

150 150 Mark S

Once you get sober, it can be incredibly easy to get caught up in the chaos of daily life, and forget that taking care of yourself is not an option, but a priority. Taking care of yourself sounds like an easy and simple task, but the reality is that most people struggle to find healthy ways to take care of themselves, whether they’re in recovery or not.

Tonight, we talk about Self Care

Addiction and substance abuse disorders are quick to take over your life and everything that’s important to you. When you’re in active addiction, drugs and alcohol become your main priority, and the importance of things like physical and mental health, work, school, and family gets drowned out by your need to not be sober.

 

Once you get sober, it can be incredibly easy to get caught up in the chaos of daily life, and forget that taking care of yourself is not an option, but a priority.

Now, back to the show…

 

Listener Jenny has one year today

Congratulations Jenny and we are looking forward to meeting you at the 2020 convention here in DETROIT!

 

Tonight, the topic is 

Self Care

 

The idea of self-care doesn’t have to be overwhelming or scary, though it definitely can be at first. In today’s culture, self-care is often thought to be taking a long bath or treating yourself to a new clothing item, but it’s so much more than that. Self-care is different for everyone, and can look like a variety of different things. For some, self-care will be doing the dishes after coming out of a depressive episode, for others, it will be buying a ticket to see a movie after a stressful week. Self-care looks different for everyone, and that’s okay.

 

Let’s start at the beginning

What first came to mind when you heard that 

Self Care was going to be the topic?

 

How did you do self care before program?

After program?

Now?

 

Why is self care important to you?

What steps do you work which are self care to you?

 

Everyone is different and there are different way to do self care.  

I have listed are nine basic steps for creating a successful and 

balanced self-care plan in recovery.

Let’s talk about them.  

 

Under the category of Physical Self-Care

Exercise

Get sleep

Eat Healthy

 

Now, let’s talk about Spiritual and Emotional Self-Care

Love Yourself

Relax

Find Balance

 

Finally, Social Self-Care

Find Support

Talk to Someone

The goal is to keep your mind on healthy things so your life can begin to change for the better. Addiction tends to keep our mind focused on a single thing, the actual addiction. If you can learn to refocus your mind and keep it busy in other areas than it will be easier to ignore the addiction.

What are your first thoughts on this topic?
What do you want to say to the new person about Staying Busing in recovery?

What did you enjoy doing as a kid?
Sports
Band

Art

Collecting
Pets
How did drugs and alcohol affect these activities?

When you were new, was free time a challenge?
Was free time dangerous to your program?
How did you fill your free time?
Was recovery a “hobby”?
Was recovery a “new addiction”?

How about today, how do you stay busy?
Meetings
Exercise
Social Media
Reading
Journaling

Triggers – Recovered 1066

150 150 Mark S

One of the long-standing obstacles to recovery is the emotional and physical cues that we experience, which make us feel like using alcohol and drugs. These cues are most commonly referred to as triggers, and they can manifest differently for different people. For some, seeing old friends and loved ones is enough to trigger wanting a drink; for others, the stress of performing well at work or school elicits the old feelings of using performance-enhancing substances. Whatever the cause, triggers should be expected—and like many other facets of recovery, expecting and planning for them is the best course of action for success.

Tonight, we talk about Triggers

Identifying a trigger is not always easy as they can sometimes have no direct somatic effect (a physical effect on your body). However, there are several common types of symptoms brought on by an addiction trigger. These symptoms are broken down into categories—physical and psychological symptoms—and knowing about both can help you protect your recovery.

First thoughts?
What are triggers?

When you were new, what triggered you to use?
Exposure to the substance itself.
Seeing other people using.
Contact with people, places, times of day, and situations commonly associated with using (such as drinking buddies, parties, and bars, getting home from work, weekends).
Particular types of emotions (such as frustration, fatigue, feeling stressed out); even positive emotions (elation, excitement, feelings of accomplishment) can be triggering.
Physical feelings (feeling sick, shaky, tense).
HALT: Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired
Emotions
Stress
Over-confidence
Mental or physical illness
Social isolation
Sex and relationships
Getting a promotion or new job
Reminiscing about or glamorising past drug use
Social situations or places where drugs are available

What did it feel like?
Did you ever succumb?
What happened?
Relapse is a process, what does this mean?
How did you fight off triggers early in recovery?
What part of the program helped (sponsor, fellowship, meetings, prayer, slogans, etc.)?

Today, what triggers you to bad behavior?
How do you fight off?

What are some other methods?
Engage in some form of distracting activity.
Talk it through.
Challenge and change your thoughts.

 

What would you say to the new person about Triggers?

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

I first experienced “Popsicle Sticks” at the Thursday Midnight night meeting at the Northwest Alano Club in Wayne Michigan. At first I hated it, then I got used to it, then it became my favorite meeting.

Flash forward to 2008ish when the PC Alano club started in Canton, Michigan. On September 28, 2008, the Canton Candlelight meeting started at the PC Alano Club. Soon after that, this style of meeting started on Thursday nights. This style of meeting continues at Canton Candlelight every Thursday at 10:00 pm and in led by are own Matt O.

Here’s how it goes.
Pick a stick
Announce the topic to all
Share on the topic
Keep the stick
Pass the can
