    Step 11 in a 12-step recovery program holds significant importance for both straight and LGBTQIA+ individuals as it emphasizes the practice of spiritual principles and mindfulness. Regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, individuals in recovery often struggle with issues of self-acceptance, shame, and spiritual disconnection. Step 11 encourages regular prayer and meditation, fostering a deeper connection with a higher power or spiritual principles that transcend individual differences. For LGBTQIA+ individuals who may have experienced rejection or discrimination from religious or spiritual communities, Step 11 offers an opportunity to explore spirituality on their own terms, free from judgment or prejudice. By embracing spiritual practices that resonate with their authentic selves, LGBTQIA+ individuals can find solace, guidance, and strength in their recovery journey.

    Step 10 in a recovery program holds immense importance as it emphasizes the practice of ongoing self-reflection and accountability. This step involves a daily inventory of one's thoughts, actions, and behaviors, along with a prompt acknowledgment of any shortcomings or mistakes. By regularly examining their attitudes and conduct, individuals in recovery cultivate a heightened sense of self-awareness and honesty, which are crucial for maintaining sobriety. Step 10 serves as a preventative measure against relapse by enabling individuals to promptly address any resentments, fears, or character defects that may arise, thus preventing them from festering and potentially leading to a return to destructive behaviors.

    Steps 8 and 9 hold significant importance in the journey of recovery within Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Step 8 involves making a list of individuals harmed during one's active addiction and becoming willing to make amends to them. This step fosters accountability and self-reflection, encouraging individuals to confront the consequences of their actions and take responsibility for repairing the harm caused. By identifying those who have been affected by their behavior, individuals in recovery begin to understand the ripple effects of their actions and the importance of seeking reconciliation. Step 8 lays the groundwork for Step 9, which involves making direct amends to those harmed, except when doing so would cause further harm or injury. This step requires humility, courage, and a commitment to personal growth. By actively seeking to make things right with others, individuals in recovery not only address past wrongs but also cultivate integrity, empathy, and a sense of accountability, essential qualities for maintaining sobriety and healthy relationships.

    Dealing with challenges in recovery is paramount to achieving sustained sobriety and personal growth. One of the key aspects is the recognition that recovery is not a linear process; setbacks and challenges are inevitable. Facing these difficulties head-on provides individuals with an opportunity for introspection and self-discovery. Through the support of a community that understands the struggles of addiction, people in recovery learn to confront and navigate challenges with resilience. This process fosters emotional strength, self-awareness, and coping mechanisms crucial for maintaining long-term recovery.

Courage to go to first meeting

On July 6th 2022 I celebrated 8 years of sobriety ; this podcast gave me the courage to go to my first meeting.

I’m previous years I have emailed the show to thank Mark giving me the courage to go to
My first meeting. This year the area I live in experienced a mass shooting on July 4th making the week of my anniversary a different experience than previously and I forgot to send that email. The episode on the 12th reminded me and I’m listening to it now as I type it

Great show! Great sobriety!
