Old Behaviors – Recovered 1073

150 150 Mark S

Think about what comes to mind when you think of patterns or behaviors. Likely it means doing something repetitive, over and over again, often without much thought given to the action. But when you’re in recovery, you can recognize that certain behaviors and attitudes have gotten you into trouble in the past. You learn in recovery that old behaviors from your addictive past have been destructive and that you can make important changes in your new life in sobriety.

Tonight, we talk about Old Behaviors

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.

We are reluctant to change. It may be more that we’re afraid of change, so starting something new is impossible. The fact that others tell us that change is beneficial does little to stop the fear of change. Overcoming the fear is a unique and personal process that we have to go through on our own. This does not mean we cannot rely on the advice and encouragement of others. Indeed, it is in listening to stories that we may be motivated to start making important changes in our own life. So, recognizing patterns is first and foremost the initial step that people in recovery need to take.

What comes first to mind when you hear the expression “Old Behaviors”?
What are some of your old behaviors that were self destructive?

When you were new, how did you learn you needed to change?
What did you need to change to stay sober?
What part of the program helped you identify old behaviors?
What part of the program helped you change old behaviors into new ones?

What stops you from changing self destructive attitudes?
Some examples may be:
Stubbornness: needing to always be right
People pleasing: at the cost of your own happiness or health
Obsessing about perfection
Blaming: inability to accept responsibility for your own mistakes
Procrastination
Inability or refusing to ask for help
Fear of taking healthy risks
Negative self talk
Self guilt and feeling undeserving of good things in life

For you, when an old behavior is recognized, what do you do that is healthy for you?

What is most likely to trigger old behaviors today?
What are your triggers?
How do you replace negative habits?

Do you think about your old self and feel guilt and remorse?
What is stinking thinking?
How do you fight these emotions?

Have you changed an old behavior into an asset?

Setting Boundaries – Recovered 1072

150 150 Mark S

Your issues with boundaries come from your past. You may have grown up where boundaries were strict and harsh. This could lead to an inability to express your feelings or to keep everyone at arm’s length. Having no boundaries will lead to you and others being enmeshed. When this happens, your roles are interchangeable and blurred and you will not establish your sense of identity. As you get older, your relationships mirror those of the past and history begins to repeat itself. As you fall into the same patterns, you increase your risk of experiencing depression or anxiety and may fall into drugs and alcohol to help cope.

Tonight, we talk about setting boundaries

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.

Establishing boundaries in your life is important, especially in recovery. By setting boundaries, you no longer allow others to take advantage of you and you begin to find your voice and learn how to use it. Your communication with others improves as you express your thoughts and feelings. Healthy boundaries lead to healthy relationships with people who have your best interests in mind, support and respect you and are willing to work with you. An added benefit is that you begin to establish your sense of self.

First thought?

What Are Healthy and Unhealthy Boundaries?

For you, what is a healthy boundary?
How do you know when a boundary has been crossed?
For you, what family of origin enmeshments do you struggle with?
For you what are healthy boundaries you have developed in recovery and how do you develop these?

How do you know the difference between healthy and unhealthy boundaries ?

For you, what are some unhealthy boundaries you have developed before program?

Family reach out
Sovil media

 

Here are some possible examples

Telling someone else how to think or feel
Sacrificing your personal values and beliefs to please someone else
Forcing your advice or beliefs on others and pressuring them to follow your advice or think the same
Allowing someone else to define you and dictate your actions
Taking responsibility for someone else’s feelings

For you what are healthy boundaries you have developed in recovery and why?

Here are some examples
Encouraging sharing feelings and thoughts
Honoring your personal values and beliefs even if others may not agree with them
Respecting others
Taking responsibility for all that you do or say
Taking full ownership and responsibility in defining yourself

Today, when are you most vulnerable and allow unhealthy boundaries/

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.

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.

We have a confirmed location where the Recovered Podcast will have  tent. We plan to have food there for our listeners and an opportunity for our Recovered Podcast community to gather and support each other.  We invite you and we want to meet you and celebrate this thing we have, this gift of recovery. We will be located in the parking lot of St. John’s Episcopal Church.  Just google St John’s Episcopal Church Detroit and you will find our location.

 

The convention takes place at the TFC Convention center.  This is formally known as Cobo Hall, so that’s not confusing.  The evening Keynotes meetings will take place in Ford Field, where the Detroit Lions play.  Our tent location is between the TFC Center and Ford Field. For a map that includes walking directions from TCF Center to our tent and then walking directions to Ford field, just go to:

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

 

We have calls

Final Thoughts?

 

We have calls
