    Being Kind to Self

    Being Kind to Self

    When taking the journey toward recovery and sobriety, it's important to be kind and patient with yourself. Not only does this help you to focus on your goals rather than your past mistakes, but it also helps you to build confidence in yourself and your choices in the future.
    For many people who struggle with addiction, being overly critical of themselves is common. Although it is important to acknowledge your faults to help you to establish and accomplish your goals, it is also important to be kind to yourself to move forward.
    Contrary to popular belief, being kind to yourself isn’t a selfish act. By understanding your disease and acknowledging your desire to do better for yourself, you are allowing yourself the opportunity to learn from your mistakes.
    Tonight, we talk about Being Kind to Ourselves.

    Quiet Time

    Quiet Time

    Neuroscientists have found that those who dedicate themselves to more quiet time develop a much greater capacity for empathy and deep thought. This is because these skills require a slower variety of thought processes in order to develop. Therefore, by focusing on making time to be alone with your thoughts you can become a better parent, sibling, partner, and friend!
    This type of exercise is especially relevant to those in recovery. Creating temporary physical and mental space away from your immediate life allows for reflection on the past, present, and future. Being a bit removed from the situation makes this a good time to assess who you truly are as a person and how you have been acting and makes it easier to see what might need to change in your life.
    Tonight, we talk about Quiet Time.

    Enjoying the Holidays Sober

    Enjoying the Holidays Sober

    The holidays are often characterized as a season of togetherness with family and loved ones, but for many, navigating through this time of year while sober is uncharted territory.
    There is so much support out there for people committed to their sobriety, especially during the holidays. However, the added stressors of gifts, events, parties, and relatives can intensify urges and vaporize a resolve in the afternoon that was solid in the morning.
    We, at Recovered, understand firsthand the potential challenges and we want to offer our experience, strength, and hope for surviving the holidays.

    Serenity Prayer

    Serenity Prayer

    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.
    This prayer asks positive power to help you peacefully accept those things you can’t change, and to have the courage to change what you can. In my experience, this often means changing my own whispered lies, words, and actions. If you’re confused about which things you can change and which ones you can’t, pause and ask for the wisdom to know which of the two choices is best for your situation.
    Tonight, we talk about the Serenity Prayer.

    Gratitude List

    Gratitude List

    When people are grateful for what they have, they will experience a great deal of happiness. When the individual constantly complains, it will be impossible for them to find peace of mind.
    Gratitude is not about what people have or do not have. There are billionaires who still do not feel satisfied and poor people who feel they have everything they need.
    Tonight, we talk about Gratitude.

    Hobbies in Recovery

    Hobbies in Recovery

    Hobbies are important for everyone: they can act as a fun and healthy outlet, or even something that brings more meaning to your life. But they’re crucial when you’re in recovery.
    Early in sobriety, you may only have energy for therapy and self-care. But as time goes on, you’ll need to spend the time you used to fill with alcohol or drugs in healthier ways — that’s where hobbies come in.
    We’re not here to tell you what hobbies to pick up: that can be an exciting journey for you to go on! But we do want you to understand how having new hobbies can benefit and shape your recovery:
    Tonight, we talk about Hobbies.

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!
