    SCI Encouragement Group--The Best of Times

    In the latest edition of the Encouragement Group, host David Gerber takes a line from Charles Dickens "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" and applies it to addiction. Hitting bottom is something no one wants to experience. However, bottom represents the first time for people to realize what worked yesterday, no longer works today, and represents a time to do something different-opening the door to so many good things. Michael Boccia adds to the discussion by sharing about the value of waiting and self-checking like a copy machine. Listen in as miracles will be shared.

However, David points out that every sober thing we do today, and is to make a better tomorrow. Even the song from the popular musical "Annie" talks about the gray and lonely today while promising  a better tomorrow. Listen in as miracles will be shared.

    In the latest edition of the Encouragement Group, host David Gerber takes paraphrases a portion of legendary NFL football coach Bill Parcel's induction speech into the Hall of Fame where he talks about winners and losers and relates this message to treatment and recovery. In treatment, those who are negative tend to find fault and complain in small groups, whereas those who are more successful understand the healthy concept of we, and have gratitude. Michael Boccia adds to the discussion by discussing how we often complain about things that we have control over, and we have capacity well beyond our self-imposed limitations.

    SCI Encouragement Group - Courage to be Imperfict

    In the latest edition of the Encouragement Group, host David Gerber discusses the concept of perfectionism, and how it exists among those addicted to substances. In recovery, perfectionism is a common cause of relapse, as many give up when things in recovery don't go perfectly. Michael Boccia chimes in by discussing how like a pebble thrown into the water, in recovery, we send out ripples to the world, and how we have the power to send out positive or negative ripples. Listen in as miracles will be shared.
