24 Hours a Day

Here in the United States, the holiday called halloween is upon us.  Ghosts, witches, bats, and violence are all around us which are supposed to arouse fear.

For us alcoholics, fear is an old companion.  One that was probably dealt with early on in recovery, it just comes back to visit us occasionally.

So let’s talk about fear, and let’s start by talking what it used to be like.

Before you came into the program, where you a fearful person?

Before you came into the program, how did fear contribute to your life?

Before program, how did fear contribute bringing unintended consequences?

Did you ever have a fear of sobriety?

Do you have a fear of failure?  Explain.

What about fear of success, what is your experience?

Fear of rejection is common, have you ever experienced this?

Some are fearful of recovery because they fear a loss of identity.  Your thoughts?

Some fear recovery because of perpetual misery, did you ever have this fear?

What about economic fears?

Have you ever had fear of people?

We have phone calls

want to take calls?

But here on the Recovered Podcast, we are about the solution.

Let’s talk about the solution.

How did 4th and 5th steps help you with your fears?

How about step 9?

What about service work?

How about sponsorship?

How did other aspects of the program help you with your fears?

What slogan, what step, what tradition, what service, what prayer, etc.?

What fears are battling today?

What slogan, what step, what tradition, what service, what prayer, etc.?

All right, let’s conclude the show by talking to the most important listener, the new guy.

Talk to the new guy who is overcome with fear.

Talk to the guy who has never been to a meeting and knows he has a problem and is fearful of AA.

What would you say to this person?

What advice would you give to these people?

This topic was put forth to us from listener Bronte.

Bronte writes

I would really like to hear people Share about their own personal evidence of a higher power acting in their lives.

 

Bronte writes that she would like to hear what their evidence is today, 

Bronte would like to hear stories, testimonies, your experiences.

 

Bronte writes, 

It's good to notice the beauty and grace in our Recovery even when things may seem insurmountable or when we are questioning whether our Higher Power exists.

I think the topic could reinforce people's hope.

Thanks, just a thought.

 

Awesome thought Bronte.

 

So, let’s start with a discussion on Step 2

Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity

 

Did you come into the program with a belief in a higher power?

How did your understanding of a higher power change change when you came into the fellowship?

What evidence do you have that your higher power is active in your life?

 

How has your attitude influenced your relationship with a higher power?

What specific things do you do to be in touch with your higher power?

 

we have calls

 

 

How has your experiences affected the way you live?

To those who are having a difficult time believing, what would you say?

How do tragedies in your life affect your relationship with your higher power?

How does your higher power keep you sober?

How does your higher power help you in your everyday life?

How does your higher power help you when bad shit happens?

How does your higher power help you when good shit happens?

How does your higher power give you hope?

What would you say to the newcomer who is confused how a higher power helps.
