🔷Чудо после волшебства! Мы сидели в аэропорту воскресным утром после 37-й Мировой Конвенции АН в Орландо, штат Флорида. Наш рейс должен был вылетать в 7 утра. Как вы понимаете, накануне мы наслаждались Конвенцией и легли довольно поздно, поэтому почти не спали. Незадолго до посадки прозвучало объявление о том, что наш вылет задерживается. После чего было еще несколько объявлений о задержках и изменении выхода на посадку. Другие пассажиры начали расстраиваться, а некоторые из них – довольно громко жаловаться. Тогда моя жена сказала: «Мы же в духовной программе, надо что-то делать. Нам нужно собрание». Было очевидно, что в той толпе у выхода было еще несколько энеевцев, так что я нашел наши карточки в телефоне и сказал им: «эй, давайте проведем собрание!». Несколько человек подошли ко мне, мы сели в кружок прямо на пол в зале ожидания и собрание началось. По мере того, как оно продолжалось, к нам присоединились еще несколько человек и очень много людей постоянно ходилои мимо нас. В какой-то момент во время собрания к нам подошел муж- чина и сел рядом с нами. Когда настала его очередь высказы- ваться, он объяснил, что недавно в сообществе и ему пока что с большим трудом удается оставаться чистым. Он сидел около другого выхода на посадку сам по себе и ждал свой рейс. Он сказал, что обычно, когда у него тяга, он идет на собрание, но поскольку он застрял в аэропорту и тут нет собраний, он решил пойти в бар. Когда он проходил мимо нас и услышал, как мы высказы- ваемся, его первой мыслью было «да ну на фиг!», но пройдя несколько метров он передумал и вернулся. Сначала он просто встал рядом, глядя в окно, и слушал наши высказывания, пока не убедился, что это и в самом деле собрание АН. Пока он гово- рил все это, мы переглядывались, не веря своим ушам, со сле- зами на глазах. Когда он закончил, мы все дружно захлопали, начали его обнимать и благодарить за то, что он к нам подошел. В конце концов наш рейс отменили. Нам с женой пришлось арендовать машину с еще тремя энеевцами, которых мы встретили на нашем импровизированном собрании, и ехать 15 часов – всю ночь напролет – чтобы попасть домой. Это была невероятная поездка. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Grief is many things. ⠀ ⠀ Grief does many things. ⠀ ⠀ Rude, invasive, gentle, unsuspecting, reminder, and can even be an encourager of love. ⠀ ⠀ What grief doesn’t have is a watch. ⠀ There isn’t a time limit. ⠀ Time doesn’t heal. ⠀ Private and public grieving helps. ⠀ Connection helps. ⠀ Find your community. ⠀ There is healing in connection. ⠀ ⠀ #butyourmotherlovesyou #endthestigma #endthementalhealthstigma #codependencyrecovery #anorexianervosarecovery #12stepstorecovery #12stepstofreedom #ptsd #bipolar #emotionalintelligence #emotionalsobriety #spiritualawakening #mentalhealthawareness #halfmeasuresavailusnothing #mentalhealthrecovery #grief #shameshame #icuTalks #ptsdrecovery #ptsdawareness #bpdrecovery #trauma #posttraumatic #traumarecovery #mentalhealth #mosaicclt #mosaicmetro #hishouseministries #mosaicme
Good morning loves! I am excited, and proud to say, that today I celebrate 1 year clean and sober from 🍷🍹🍺 alcohol! I wasn't privately active in my addiction, it was evident. So I won't be privately proud of my recovery! I want to publicly thank my family, friends, community and support people for their prayers and encouragement. Especially my husband Paul and son Camden. I can't say that this journey has been easy, but I can say that it has been worth it. I am more healthier now than I've been in over 5 years, and with my healthy lifestyle, God saw fit for me to bring new life into this crazy world of ours in the form of Trenton! I am excited to see what amazing things are in store for me along this journey, and up for the challenges that may come! #myjourneytosobriety #soberlife #soberwoman #soberwife #sobermommy #wellbriety #wellbeing #healthyliving #12stepstorecovery #recovery #recoverylife #recoverywin #onedayatatime #itworksifyouworkit #proudofmyself #thebestisyet2come
Couldn't have a better quote for today. Nothing like a little thinking to get your shit in order, even when you think it is all crazy at the moment. The mind is a terrible playground and some days I just don't feel like playing. Everyday I wake up fighting anxiety and "what if" seriously? All I do know is that I am not having anxiety about where and what I have to do to get well. And no matter what, I am grateful for that. I'd rather be anxious about upcoming classes and bills and the fact we need a new vehicle versus how I am gonna get the $100 together just to get me through the day. Talk about anxiety. I wish I could help those around me everyday that I drive into the hellfire and see first hand who I was. Am. I just happened to have given up on life and was lucky to have been given the chance to fly. #recovery #recoveringaddicts #addiction #addictslife #addict #cleantime #chaseyourrecovery #secondchances #newwayoflife #newbeginnings #cleanliving #soberliving #cleanandserene #workingonedayatatime #onedayatatime #onehouratatime #anxiety #mentalhealth #abusesurvivor #survivor #warrior #saynopetodope #opiodaddiction #opiodepidemic #stepwork #12stepstorecovery
The gift of desperation Our disease always resurfaced or continued to progress until, in desperation, we sought help from each other in Narcotics Anonymous. Basic Text, pg. 13 When we think of being desperate, we envision an undesirable state: a poor, bedraggled soul frantically clawing at something sorely needed, a desperate look in the eyes. We think of hunted animals, hungry children, and of ourselves before we found NA. Yet it was the desperation we felt before coming to NA that compelled us to accept the First Step. We were fresh out of ideas, and so became open to new ones. Our insanity had finally risen higher than our wall of denial, forcing us to get honest about our disease. Our best efforts at control had only worn us out; hence, we became willing to surrender. We had received the gift of desperation and, as a result, were able to accept the spiritual principles that make it possible for us to recover. Desperation is what finally drives many of us to ask for help. Once we've reached this state, we can turn around and start anew. Just as the desperate, hunted animal seeks a safe haven, so do we: in Narcotics Anonymous. #justfortoday #basictext #dailymeditation #recovery #recovering #recoveringaddict #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #addiction #addictionrecovery #addictionisreal #addictionisadisease #drugfree #drugssuck #drugsarebad #cleanandserene #twelvesteps #12steps #12stepstorecovery #workthesteps #itworksifyouworkit #keepcomingback #onedayatatime #odaat #narcoticsanonymous #recoveryquotes #livejustfortoday #wedontrecoverovernight #recoverytakestime

Successful people make life look easy. But it’s not. Years of hard work, trial and error, and learning probably went into each success. . The key is this: We must choose to do what we really LIKE. If we want to be successful, we’ll have to keep working at it. We’ll have letdowns, and we’ll get bored at times. But we’ll be happy because we’re doing what we want, what we know is best for us. Real success has to do with our own happiness. . In our programs, we’ll meet many successful people. They’ve worked hard at recovery, and they’re still learning. And they’re happy to share their success with us. . #PrayerForTheDay – Higher Power, thank-you for the success the program has already given me. . #ActionForTheDay – I’ll list three ways I know I am a success today. Number one: I’m sober! .

#eatgooddogood all profits from our food truck go back into helping men and families get well from addiction. Each dollar invested in Fresh Start ends up saving the community over $6 in services that the community doesn't have to provide to individuals affected by addiction through policing, ambulance, shelter, hospitals and other human services. Some of the payback also comes in the form of tax revenue from people who formerly couldn't work and now are working and paying taxes. Just some of the ways you give back to community when you book our truck or eat a meal with us.
We have many sides, some good, some bad. Maybe we’re afraid to see our faults. But we don’t need to be afraid. After all, we need to know our dark side before we can change it. When we see ourselves clearly, we can stop our dark side from causing trouble. . When we shine light on our fears and secrets, we’ll begin to feel better about ourselves. We’ll feel more safe about sharing our worries. The more honest we are with ourselves and others, the better and stronger we become. The goodness and love in us will blossom. We have a Higher Power and a program to help us. . #PrayerForTheDay – Higher Power, help me be brave enough to see myself clearly. Gently teach me to see who I really am. Help me know enough to stay sober today. . #ActionForTheDay – Today, I’ll look myself in the eyes. I’ll spend two minutes looking into my eyes in a mirror. I’ll talk to my sponsor about what I see. .

Using our using dreams Do we fully accept the fact that our every attempt to stop using or to control our using failed? Basic Text, pg.19 The room is dark. Your forehead is bathed in cold sweat. Your heart is racing. You open your eyes, sure that you’ve just blown your clean time. You’ve had a “using dream,” and it was just like being there—the people, the places, the routine, the sick feeling in your stomach, everything. It takes a few moments to realize it was just a nightmare, that it didn’t actually happen. Slowly, you settle down and return to sleep. The next morning is the time to examine what really happened the night before. You didn’t use last night—but how close are you to using today? Do you have any illusions about your ability to control your using? Do you know, without a doubt, what would happen once you took the first drug? What stands between you and a real, live relapse? How strong is your program? Your relationships with your sponsor, your home group, and your Higher Power? Using dreams don’t necessarily indicate a hole in our program; for a drug addict, there’s nothing more natural than to dream of using drugs. Some of us think of using dreams as gifts from our Higher Power, vividly reminding us of the insanity of active addiction and encouraging us to strengthen our recovery. Seen in that light, we can be grateful for using dreams. Frightening as they are, they can prove to be great blessings—if we use them to reinforce our recovery. #justfortoday #basictext #dailymeditation #recovery #recovering #recoveringaddict #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #addiction #addictionrecovery #addictionisreal #addictionisadisease #drugfree #drugssuck #drugsarebad #cleanandserene #twelvesteps #12steps #12stepstorecovery #workthesteps #itworksifyouworkit #keepcomingback #onedayatatime #odaat #narcoticsanonymous #recoveryquotes #livejustfortoday #wedontrecoverovernight #recoverytakestime
