Escape Suffering – Recovered 1216

150 150 Mark S


By giving back to others, you give yourself a purpose. It’s a constant reminder of the fact that you are worthy of life, that you have something to offer, and that you deserve love just as much as everyone else. There’s nothing quite like feeling needed, and people who are fresh into sober living can certainly benefit from the lessons you have to teach them after you’ve walked the path for a while yourself. There’s also nothing quite like the satisfaction of talking to someone when they are suffering. Sometimes what we need most is just a friendly ear. Never doubt how much you provide just by offering someone a friendly ear.  We find that when we support someone who is suffering, our own suffering is eased. Tonight, we talk about Escaping Suffering.

Emptiness – Recovered 1214

150 150 Mark S

When we stop using drugs and alcohol, we can see the void we were trying to fill. We can see the emptiness that existed before our addiction.

Filling this void with drugs and alcohol did not work. But maybe this emptiness has a purpose. Maybe recovery can help us fill the void with what it was intended for. If you are new, you are beginning your recovery journey and the void is visible. And it is scary. Don’t worry! When you have the support of the fellowship, when you have a homegroup, when you work steps, when you talk with a trusted friend, you can see that this void can be filled with good things. Filled with things it was intended for.

Tonight, we talk about Emptiness.
