There are so many slogans, acronyms, and phrases to help us recover. Some we love; some we hate. There is always one that works for you! What is it?
Reflecting on Amends
We may have formally taken Steps 8 and 9 but there may be certain people that prompt us to think twice about the amends we made and is there anything more to say.
Regretting the Past

No one in recovery can afford to be arrogant and believe they will never relapse. But why some people get a taste of sobriety and continue to go in and out any number of times still evades me. I understand it yet can't comprehend it. It's about being human. It has to be.
Relapse - Never Say Never
There are many ways to describe relapse and many reasons why it happens. Prevention is the key but regression doesn't happen overnight. Identify where you are in your recovery and know if you are entering the danger zone.
Remembering My Dad
This is the first Father's Day without my dad. He gave me so much but he also gave me a genetic predisposition to a disease called alcoholism.
Resentments are dangerous, yet no matter how hard we try we can still find ourselves in the middle of one. The good news is that we can now recognize a resentment and find serenity.
Responsible Online Recovery
There is a tremendous amount of information online for recovering addicts. We need to be responsible and careful about advice we receive and also the advice we give in a chat room, blog, or forum
How private is your recovery? When, why and to whom do you reveal your addiction? When necessary I prefer to reveal my recovery not my addiction. Recovery is the good news and evidence I am living in the now.
Articles and research sometimes do little to cite the dangers of alcohol. As a matter of fact, it seems that there is more written about promoting drinking than ever before. Is there really any benefits for anyone other than the alcohol industry?
