The Media and Addiction
Perhaps when we are in recovery we evaluate more closely how the media, particularly TV, addresses addictions. Fortunately, not everything is negative.
How Do You Pray?
We all understand the power of prayer in recovery. When things are good, prayer is easy. But when life takes a wrong turn focusing on prayer may be more difficult. So before another day goes by, ask yourself, "How do I pray?"
Summer is usually a time for most of us to feel more relaxed or to have a more casual life style. The season can also be a slippery slope especially if we become a bit lazy in our recovery and forget who we are.
Drug Addiction and AA
The meeting rooms of AA are not without controversial issues. The one that repeats itself often is sharing an addiction, other than alcohol, with the group. Some say AA means only alcohol; others disagree. The author has her own opinion. What is yours?
Vivitrol and AA
Science continues to develop drugs that specifically target addictions. These are great advances but can a monthly drug truly help us recover body, mind and soul?
Women In Recovery
There is no addiction that encompasses only men or only women. Addiction(s) are not discriminating in any way. But women in recovery do have something very special...each other!
A Daily Focus
All of those daily prayer and meditation books we buy are great. But did you ever think about creating your own daily focus and making it what you really need? Every now and then it is a healthy alternative.
Denial is what keeps most folks away from recovery. We work Step One and we admit we are powerless over our addiction. But what about that defect that won't go away? Is it really a defect or are we denying that it is another addiction?
Progress Not Perfection
We love the phrase "progress not perfection". We have worked hard to rid ourselves of the need to be perfect. But do we truly mean it the way it was intended or do we use it as an excuse for old bevaviors?
The holidays can be a slippery slope for those of us in recovery. Nothing is more important than our sobriety but we can attend those holiday parties safely and have fun.
