Sponsorship – Recovered 1034

150 150 Mark S

As a newcomer, you will generally want to look for a sponsor who has been sober for a good amount of time and who is available to work with someone in early recovery. A sponsor is someone who you will exchange phone numbers with, talk to regularly, and use as your guide to working the steps. It is common for sponsors to ask sponsees in early recovery to call or text them frequently, meet with them regularly, to read 12-step literature, and do step-work.

Tonight, we talk about Sponsorship

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.

It might feel strange to ask someone to sponsor you for the first time, but this act is seen by those in 12-step recovery as an honor. Even if someone is not available to sponsor you, they will appreciate that you asked them. Sharing experience, strength, and hope with newcomers is viewed as one of the foundations of staying sober in 12-step recovery, so being a sponsee is just as important and helpful as being a sponsor.

What comes first to mind on this topic?

What is Sponsorship?
Why is it important?
What to look for?
What to watch out for?
How do you develop trust?
How do you get a sponsor?

Does changing sponsors mean giving up on the program?

Is it ever too late to get a sponsor?

How does sponsorship help the sponsor?
Can any member be a sponsor?
How do you get a sponsee?

When is a member ready for sponsorship responsibility?
What does a sponsor do and not do?

Forgiveness – Recovered 1032

150 150 Mark S

Regardless of how much time has passed since you were harmed or wronged by someone, it can be challenging to genuinely forgive. However, forgiveness is an integral part of addiction recovery, and being able to set aside past hurts is an important aspect of long-term treatment. The person holding a grudge is almost always the person most negatively affected by it, and that not being able to let go of old frustrations can lead to relapses. While it may take significant time and effort, and may require the help of a counselor trained in forgiveness, letting go of past hurts is critical for long-term sobriety.

Tonight, we talk about Forgiveness

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.

More often than not, lying is a habit for people because they fear the consequences of their actions and want to protect themselves. Lying is an unproductive coping tactic. It is normal to struggle with owning up to dishonesty, but the key is to acknowledge when it occurs as soon as possible. If not, you could struggle with feelings of guilt and put your sobriety in jeopardy. 

In the context of addiction, forgiveness can be complicated. Addiction can be fueled by past abuse, trauma, and hurtful actions by others. It can feel threatening to forgive people who have harmed you in such detrimental ways. Many addicts also struggle to forgive themselves for past bad decisions. Holding onto such resentments can be toxic for a person in recovery, and therefore needs to be addressed with forgiveness.

What comes first to mind on this topic?

Do you forgive easily?

What kinds of things are easily forgiven for you?
What are difficult to forgive for you?

Why is forgiveness important in your recovery?
Why is withholding forgiveness a threat to sobriety for you?

Have you ever asked for forgiveness?
How is this related to Step 9 for you?

How are resentments and forgiveness related for you?

What is your reaction to the expression “Forgive and forget?”
How is forgiveness a strength for you?
How is forgiveness a weakness for you?

Can you forgive someone without saying the words to the person?

How can you forgive someone who had died?

Can you forgive someone you are still angry with?
How? Or Why not?

What part of the program helps you with forgiveness?
How is forgiveness spiritual for you?

Honesty – Recovered 1030

150 150 Mark S

Of all the moral characteristics, honesty is one of the most respected. It is also the spiritual principle behind step one. Many people in recovery live by the mantra “we are as sick as our secrets.” Individuals need to pay special attention to honesty in recovery because they have to be truthful to others, and above all they have to be honest with themselves. People who do not develop honesty as a personal quality are more prone to relapse. This is why honesty has to become an everyday habit until it becomes second nature.

Tonight, we talk about Honesty.

Complacency in Recovery – Recovered 1028

150 150 Mark S

Much like other areas of life, when we first enter recovery, it’s new and exciting. Unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before, living life in sobriety after years spent toiling away in addiction is exhilarating and we strive for more. But what happens after the novelty of recovery wears off? Complacency in recovery is not uncommon
but can become dangerous if you let it take control.

Tonight, we talk about Complacency in Recovery

Complacency is insidious; it descends upon us gradually. Before we know it, if we’re not careful, our meeting attendance sharply declines from every day to five times a week, then to once a week, and then finally to one meeting per month. Our daily talks with our sponsors become weekly chats in passing, and our step work begins to collect dust in the corners of our rooms. We begin to encounter familiar feelings of emptiness or desolation. We have become complacent.

 

We have become prime targets for relapse.

 

What comes to mind first regarding Complacency in Recovery?

What is being complacent to you?

What does it look like for you?

 

What is the difference between being confident and being complacent?

For you, what character defect is in affect when you are complacent?

What is the opposite of that character defect for you?

 

How do you know when you are being complacent?

Can you tell when someone else is being complacent?

 

What is the difference between being complacent with your recovery and being satisfied with your recovery?

 

Why is being complacent bad for you?

How is it is dangerous?

 

How do you fight off complacency?

How can the following help?

Higher power

Steps, which ones

Slogans, which ones

Service work, what types

Meetings

Sponsor

Sponsees
