Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions. If you would like to join us, there are two ways.
The Recovered Podcast Community is not a glum lot. They contribute to the show and what they share is exactly what someone else needs to hear. The new guy needs to hear your story. So honor your 12th step obligation by calling in and help the guy who has not yet gone to his first meeting, you may make the difference in his life. There are two ways to add to the show:
For you, Ms. New Person, Life is all new now that you’re in recovery.
For all of us, It’s all about a second chance,
an opportunity to create a
new direction in our life that
we never before thought possible.
If you are new,
You may be one of the lucky ones who are
brimming with excitement and hope for the future –
Now, on the other hand, you may be feeling terrible.
Don’t be disappointed if these happy feelings don’t come right away.
After all, you’re new
and you may still feel a bit uncertain
for some period of time.
But, Looking ahead,
you may wonder how to get recovery all at once.
This is why you may want to put together a
Workable plan of action for your recovery –
This is why you may want to set some priorities.
A plan to work recovery, one step at a time as it were.
That is what we are going to talk about this week,
Setting Priorities in Recovery.
Ok, Chrissy, you’re first.
When you were new, what were your priorities?
After some sober time, did those priorities change?
I would ask myself a question, “How important is it?”
Do I want to be right or do I want to be happy?
What steps help with setting and executing priorities/goals
What other tools help and how?
Just making the decision to work a program automatically made recovery a priority.
What specific goal are you working on now?
Maintaining a spiritual life
Picking up up to two more sponsees
Write a book?
Talk at a prison
Call sponsor more
Date nights/more romance
