When breaking free from a life of addiction, your sobriety takes center stage in your life. Recovery takes all your time, energy and focus.

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. Here in our virtual 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

One of the famous sayings used by Twelve Step groups is that you have to give it away in order to keep it. What this is referring to is the idea that service in recovery can help the giver as much as the receiver. This giving should not be done in the hope of a reward or praise. Instead the individual does it because they know that it is helping to keep them clean and sober too. Numerous studies have provided evidence that helping others in recovery provides great benefit to the helper.

Self-awareness is the foundation of addiction recovery and good mental health. It is a key skill of emotional sobriety and is the basis for the other skills of self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills.

Long-term recovery is all about perseverance. Some common reasons why people enter recovery include being desperate for a change, wanting to appease loved ones, or being motivated by avoiding jail time. During early recovery, there’s often a period where these individuals feel motivated and optimistic about their long-term prospects. However, recovery goes on and on. Perhaps the biggest challenge is keeping at it when your lowest point is a distant memory and there’s no end goal in sight. There is no shortcut to perseverance; you just have to persevere.
