Thank you Mark for all you do! You and your guests do a fantastic job at carrying the message! I listen to y’all all day at work. I love the way God moves through this program! I found you through Spencer on The Recovery Show and come to find out you are the reason I found him. I lead a 12 step study in ACA and I have recommended your podcast to all of them because I feel like understanding this disease is key to the forgiveness that they need to find in order to heal. My heart also goes out to you Mark in regards to Andrew! You are doing a wonderful thing while keeping his spirit alive. You are touching more souls than you’ll ever know! May God bless and your wife and keep on pressing on! Sending love from Raleigh, NC!

If you suffer from anxiety and a substance use disorder, you might not understand how they interact, but you can definitely feel it. The tension, stress, worries and feeling of restlessness start to creep into your day; or maybe it hits you first thing when you wake. You try to go about your life, but all you can think of is your anxiety. It can consume you if you let it.  But there are ways to cope.  

That’s what we will talk about tonight.  Tonight we talk about anxiety

Let’s go to you first Matt,

When you think about anxiety, where does your head go first?

What is your experience?

What did it used to be like?

What were you anxious about before program?

How did you cope?

What happened in early recovery?

What is it like now?

Usually there is an underlying problem that causes anxiety.

I have to check myself, usually I’m hiding something.

Sometimes, anxiety can be good

Anxiety got my into program

Thoughts?

For me, I need to check myself and be honest as to whether I have done something wrong that causes my anxiety

Am I hiding something?

Trauma can be a source of residual anxiety

Illness

Poverty

Violence

Just wired that way

How can getting honest help?

How do you use honesty to help with anxiety

Sometimes, getting honest takes courage too.

What is your experience?

How can stinking thinking affect your anxiety?

How can you deal with stinking thinking?

How about amends?

How can steps 9 and 10 help?

How does being alone affect your anxiety levels?

New Tricks to Use When Anxiety Hits:

Deep breathing: When you take in deep breaths, you are telling your body to relax. The best way to do this is breathing in for four counts, holding the breath for four and letting it out for four counts. Repeat this at least four times or as long as you need.

Progressive muscle relaxation: This involves tensing specific muscles and relaxing them. Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Start by balling your fists and tensing your arms. Hold the tension for four counts and let go. Move on to your stomach, your legs, and your feet. Repeat the cycle at least three time or as many times as you need. Before you know it, you’ll feel loose and relaxed.

Challenging your anxiety: Sometimes you let your thoughts take over. However, using “thought stopping” and “reframing” helps you take on your thoughts and push them out of the way. Whenever you have a paralyzing thought, literally tell yourself “stop!” and switch it out for a positive thought.

With practice and consistency, the change in your routine becomes second nature and effective.

Practicing humility in your recovery makes you teachable,

Practicing humility makes you a better listener and it allows you to examine yourself without shame or judgment.

The hardest thing about practicing humility is that most of us want to feel that we have some kind of power or importance in our own lives. Lowering our importance goes against what is natural to us.

Humility is not low self-esteem.

Humility means taking credit for what you are responsible for and giving credit for what you are not responsible for.

Humility means learning from others.

Tonight, we talk about Humility

First to mind?

What comes first to mind?

Where do you want to start?

When you were new, what was your opinion of humility?

What is your understanding now?

What does humility look like for you in a practical way?

Why is humility important to you?

How has your attitude toward humility changed during your time in program?

How did you learn about humility?

What steps helped?

What prayers helped?

How did the fellowship help?

How did your sponsor help?

How does your higher power help?

What is the difference between humility and humiliation?

Why is pride dangerous?

Why is pride bad for your recovery?

When is pride good?

When does pride cross the line from something that is ok to something that threatens sobriety?

How do you know when pride is moving into dangerous territory for you recovery?

Rank #6: Celebrating in Recovery - Recovered 1012

Podcast cover

One of the fears that people have when they give up alcohol or drugs is that a life of sobriety will be boring. Once people spend a bit of time in recovery they realize that this is a complete myth. Sobriety opens up a world of opportunity, and most people complain that there is not enough hours in the day to do all the things they want to do.

Tonight, we talk about Celebrating in Recovery

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 three ways.

In can be hard for those who abuse substances to understand how anyone could celebrate anything without mind-altering substances to help things along. These individuals can later find out that it is not only possible to celebrate without alcohol and drugs, but that it is significantly more rewarding to do so.

How did you celebrate before recovery?

What did you celebrate in early recovery?

How did you celebrate?

What did you learn about yourself?

Were you fearful of celebrating in early recovery?

How did the program help?

What are difficult places to go sober when you were new?

Where are the difficult places today?

How do you have fun today?

How are you celebrating the fourth of July?

What is the holiday known here in america as fourth of July?

Sobriety countdown?

How do you celebrate when you don’t want to?

How do you celebrate a death?

Reasons to Celebrate in Recovery

When people give up alcohol and drugs they already have something to celebrate. The longer they stay sober the more reasons they will have to feel good about life. There will also be plenty of special occasions in sobriety worth celebrating such as:

Birth of a child

Sobriety birthdays

New job

Passing an exam

Winning an award

Getting a promotion

Getting married

Holidays like Christmas

* Recognition for a job well done

Once people escape an addiction, they are sure to have some great days ahead of them. These celebratory times are to be enjoyed, but they can be treacherous for people who are in the early days of their sobriety.

Rank #7: Addiction Replacements - Recovered 1008

Podcast cover
Read more

Whether it is a dependence on drugs, alcohol or gambling, the general assumption is that once a person enters recovery for an addiction, they should be “cured” of all Addiction Replacements. However, the prevalence of addiction replacement shows the true nature of addiction for what it is — a disease.

We alcoholics suffer. Before program, our obsession with drugs and alcohol led to the destruction of everything important to us. Even after program, new obsessions can also cause us to suffer, even without the alcohol. Sure, it’s obvious that our addictive behavior is the source of our own misery, but we may still seem unwilling to change. We are unwilling to change because of many things, but usually, it’s fear. We people with addictions must learn how to find courage.

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 three ways.

  1. Episode Sponsorship  We will recognize you by first name only at the top, mid, and end of the episode.  Any amount will qualify.

Addiction replacement is substituting one addiction for another. This typically occurs after the recovery process for the original addiction.

What is Addiction Replacements to you?

What kinds of compulsive behavior did you have as a child? What kinds of compulsive behavior did you have before program?

When you were new, did you find a substitute addiction? What was it and what did you get out of it? Did you suffer from this behavior? Did you have guilt and shame? Did you do it in secrete?

What types of behaviors do you have to pay attention to? Food Tv Gossip Porn Risk taking Sex Shopping Gambling Exercise Dieting Meetings Work Perfectionism

What emotional need are you trying to fulfill? ________ We asked our listeners about this topic.

https://www.surveymonkey.com/analyze/rf9dI3HZL8FQhYcsPUgwcmsDgnK8o5joAlei6NvYcZvnS7mDuLR1k8v9pYByLMTH

What would be your answer? ________

They say: Individuals in recovery may also experience a lowered level of dopamine in the brain, which would limit their ability to feel happiness or excitement during the early stages of sobriety. This can influence recovering addicts to transfer their past addictive behaviors into other activities or substances as a way to fulfill the craving, and reduce the unpleasant side effects of withdrawal. Can you relate?

They say: So while on the surface an activity like shopping can appear as a healthier alternative than abusing drugs, both addictions can produce similar consequences. Signs that an addiction replacement has taken place are:

Constantly thinking about your new activity or vice Losing sleep to participate in new activity Trouble at work, school or at home Relationship issues with spouse or loved ones Neglecting self-care and personal hygiene Experiencing stress or anxiety if unable to complete new activity You thoughts?

What about today, what Addiction Replacements are you fighting against?

Do you think you are unique in this?

Solutions? Steps, prayers, higher power, sponsor, therapist?

Some view entering a 12 step recovery program as a step that only follows hitting “rock bottom” with a drug or alcohol addiction. Some even view entering program as a sign of weakness because that person does not have proper self control. And while recovery can come at the point when an addiction becomes life inhibiting, it remains a courageous choice nonetheless.

Tonight, we talk about courage. Tonight, the topic we discuss is “Courage in Recovery.”

Your first thoughts on courage and our recovery program?

Did you have courage at first? What did early recovery courage look like? Did you become more or less fearful when you first came into program?

What is courage in program to you? Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear Courage is the ability to do something that frightens one. etc. Why is courage important to your program?

Talk to the new person… Why were you fearful when you were new? Did you think others in program were courageous? Why? How did you lose fear and become courageous? What was the first thing (other than steps 4/9 and other thank coming to your first meeting) you did in recovery that was brave and you knew it would take fortitude? ________ We asked our listeners about this topic.

What is the bravest thing one of your sponsees has done? What was the bravest thing you have done in recovery? (Other than coming into the program and other than steps 4 and 9)

When has fear held you back? Do you have regrets and how do you deal with that?

What steps takes courage for you? What steps has given you fortitude? What parts of the program (steps, service, higher power, fellowship, traditions, etc.) help develop courage?

Rank #9: Feeling Inferior in Recovery - Recovered 995

One of the emotional similarities many of us with alcoholism have with people with mental illness is that of an inferiority complex. The Al-anon can relate to this topic as well.

Addiction serves to numb unpleasant thoughts, feelings, and memories. While in recovery, many of these problems that were temporarily self-medicated away once again float to the surface.

Self-discovery techniques are essential in recovery and are often a part of 12 step programs. They serve to help you come to terms with your decisions and understand some of the reasons why you were vulnerable to addiction.

They also allow you to identify the best, most positive parts of yourself and make better use of them while letting go of the past and learning to forgive yourself and others.

What come first to mind?

How did your using get in the way of understanding yourself? Did you use to medicate your feelings? What feelings are most unpleasant to you?

When you first came into recovery, did you have a hard time moderating your feelings and emotions? Give examples so that the new person can identify. How did you cope with these feelings in early recovery and before you were practicing steps?

Which steps helped you discover yourself? What steps assisted you in this journey? What did you discover? Where there any surprises? ________ We asked our listeners about this topic.
