Hey everyone! Another meeting tomorrow at 7:00pm at the Bountiful tabernacle in classroom 4. We're going to talk about what goes into maintaining recovery and sobriety after it feels like we're got it figured out. It's not uncommon to hear about others who, after large amounts of sobriety and recovery are achieved end up relapsing. This occurrence can trigger trauma and emotions of fear, anxiety, shame, and defeat. I want to say that recovery and sobriety can be achieved, but it is not a one-and-done process. Recovery is a lifestyle change and needs to made a priority and maintained throughout life each and every day. If daily effort is not contributed to recovery one day at a time it is easy to see old behaviors or thought patterns come creeping in slowly. We're going to focus tomorrow on what can be done not only in relapse prevention, but also progressing and sustaining healthy living, recovery, and sobriety so that we can live life without fear. I hope to see tomorrow! . . . . #shameless #shamelessrecovery #support #addictionrecovery #sobriety #surrender #denial #addictionawareness #pornkillslove #love #supportgroup
Back on the couch with this guy... I now have bronchitis and the beginning stages of pneumonia. 😭🤮 I just finished heavy doses of steroids and now I’m back on heavier doses of them. 🤢 I had to leave work because I couldn’t breathe and my lips were purple. Sigh.... #spoonie #chronicillness #chronicallyfabulous #fabulouszebra #pots #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicpain #eds #ehlersdanlossyndrome #endometriosis #hysterectomy #hysterectomyrecovery #autoimmunedisease #gastroparesis #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #god #godisgood #addiction #addictionrecovery #addict
This is not what anyone ever wants, but it is an unfortunate outcome for many, when someone they love is addicted to drugs or alcohol. Choosing the right Addiction Recovery Program is important in taking steps to making sure this never becomes a reality because of addiction. #addiction #addictions #addictionrecovery #addictionrehab #drugaddiction #drugaddictionrecovery #alchoholic
Forgiving self and other to heal from addiction... And remember: Forgiveness is not just a nice idea— it’s a practice, and an eminently pragmatic training. It can be undertaken in concrete fashion. And ultimately it has the power to reorient us into a radically liberated new stance toward the world... #forgiveness #mindfulness #suffering #liberation #buddhism #addiction #addictionrecovery #love @refugerecoverylosangeles

Read this in the big book today. Really spoke to me. Put those thoughts into action! Action Action Action! Went to the gym today, then healthy grocery shopping, lunch time AA meeting and now group therapy! Big dose of Monday to get this week started. #SoberSimonSays What are you putting into action today?
Resistance is what’s holding you back from everything that you want. Resistance is that voice in your head that snoozes the alarm, tells you that you can’t do this, and that you don’t deserve that. Resistance only wants what it knows, what it believes is safe and familiar, which is good in some cases (that’s why it’s there), but if you want to grow, to change, to expand, to do shit that you’ve never done before, resistance is what’s fighting you internally every step of the way. And in order to buck resistance and grow, you first have to become aware of how resistance is already showing up in your life. Once you can see it, then you can overcome it, but frankly, resistance is a deceptive mf’er so you have to be diligent in recognizing it. We’ll talk much more about resistance here, but first, here’s a quick list of how resistance has shown up in my life in different areas: 1. Sleep. 🛏 (Not getting up early enough; prioritizing comfort) 2. Money.💰(Holding into limiting beliefs that I’m not good with bread) 3. Cannabis.💨 (Lack of accountability around self-medicating) 4. TV. 📺 (Netflix, etc. Prioritizing entertainment comfort > shit I actually want) 5. Instagram.📲 (Mindless scrolling; similar to #4 ) 6. Fear of failure. 😬 (Not starting projects, not writing, etc.) 7. Fear of abandonment. 😓 (Not putting myself out there; shutting myself off to new relationships/opportunities) Acknowledging resistance is the first step to that growth you want! Feel free to share your own lists in the comments to start overcoming that shit RN! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼

‘Nuff said 👏🏼
No one can save you except yourself! This is a sad fact but true. If I didn’t take a chance at becoming sober, I’d still be the blackout drunk- miserable, full of self hate, shame and guilt! That chance has taken me thus far on the most eye opening wonderful journey! Sure there has been hard as fuck days but the good days outweigh the bad! Take a chance! Cx

Learning to combat the compulsion to use your drug of choice is extremely challenging. . . The compulsion starts with reoccurring thoughts, that perhaps to start with you may be able to bat away easily. But those thoughts are devious as they reoccur and come with a bargaining agreement this time I.e. “This is the last time and then we’ll stop”. It’s more difficult to move past them now but you might manage. But the thoughts come again, this time bargaining widely and they are accompanied by palpable fantasies of how it’s going to make you feel. At this point, if you don’t have the tools to combat the compulsion, you’re dialling your dealer. . . Find someone who can help you gather those tools. Without them, we cannot recover. . . #compulsion #wedorecover #sober #soberliving #mentalhealthquotes #drugsandalcohol #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #addiction #addictionrecovery
Both gentlemen have contributing and complementary talents and experiences coupled with the desire to give back to the recovery community. They want to not only help individuals stay sober, but also to teach skills that include life experiences much more compelling than the past. . They know and understand the path to sustainable recovery, how to follow the 12-step practices and principles and apply that design for living to continuing quality of life. . Lasting recovery is what drives and determines all of their decisions. . Bee Cave Recovery Opening Fall 2019 Austin, Texas .
