    Popsicle Sticks

    Popsicle Sticks

    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

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

    Fear

    Fear

    When people give up abusing alcohol and drugs it does not mean that their trials in life are over. They are still going to have to deal with the ups and downs of life just like everyone else. The only difference will be that they won’t be hiding from reality through substance abuse. One of the things that people in recovery are almost certain to face is fear. It is unavoidable. Those in recovery are no longer interested in hiding from fear. Their focus is on learning to manage it effectively.
    Fear can be defined as a distressing emotion aroused by impending pain or danger. The trigger for this emotion can be real or imaginary, and it may or may not be rational. When people feel fear, they may go into panic mode. This means that are unable to think clearly or make good decisions. It is usual to view fear as a negative emotion, but it can also be highly beneficial, as it helps to keep humans out of danger.
    Tonight, we talk about Fear

    People can be afraid of getting better in recovery. This is because so much of their identity has been wrapped up in their addiction. It can be impossible for people to imagine a life where substance abuse is no longer so important. The idea of a person who is happy and sober can be frightening. It can feel like they need to give away their current identity in order to become a stranger. Getting better is undoubtedly a step into the unknown and it does take courage to press forward into sobriety. But it’s worth it.
    This week’s topic of
    Fear
    was inspired by
    Chapter 31 - Surrendering the Weapons of Fear
    Of Buddy’s book, Powerless But Not Helpless
    Get the book at BuddyC.org
    So, here is
    Verse 31 - Surrendering the Weapons of Fear
    The weapons of fear are selfishness, dishonesty, and resentment.
    When we start this path, these are the only defenses we possess.
    The result is weakness, despair, and death.
    As we surrender to this new way of life, we begin to lay down the weapons of fear and pick up the gifts of Love in their place.
    We see that our enemy was not the target of our fear.
    There is no enemy, only ourselves.

A Lifeline

This 12-step recovery podcast has been a lifeline for me, especially during Covid! Each episode is like a meeting in a podcast! I am so grateful!

Explicit

I like your show but the explicit language makes it hard for me to listen.
