Gratitude in Sobriety

Gratitude in Sobriety

The idea that gratitude is not just a sentiment but a spiritual principle is central to New Thought teachings (and many other faith traditions as well). While we are in no way claiming that gratitude plays a lesser role in 12-step philosophy, emphasis on it is perhaps not quite as obvious.

With that in mind, we are please to bring you a wonderful article from SpiritualRiver.com on the importance of gratitude. Happy Thanksgiving!

A Line of Coke

A Line of Coke

Moments ago I was back in time. I dreamed I did a line of coke. It felt too real and so stressful even in my dream. I just woke up and want to write it down while still fresh.

It went like this: I stumbled upon an unbeknownst bag of cocaine in my home. I felt a sudden surge of sneaky adrenaline as I determined what to do. I hurriedly filled up one of those brown glass gram containers that people used to use and maybe still do for all I know.

Being Human and Other Conditions

Being Human and Other Conditions

My friend is having trouble synching her Science of Mind understanding with Alcoholics Anonymous when it comes to saying “I am an alcoholic” in what sounds like affirmative verbiage. A core tenet of 12 Step recovery is saying “I am that”, recognizing and admitting that alcohol has taken a vice-like grip in the physical, mental, and emotional domains and is encroaching upon a balanced and peaceful life.

Meeting God Personally

Spirituality in addiction recovery can be a stumbling block for many. As there are myriad ways of “getting at” the spirituality of all things, it can be challenging especially when people have a passionate, particular religious bias or entirely repulsed by religion, period. Not so coincidentally, both of these perspectives and everything in between show up in addiction treatment regularly.

Asking for Help

Asking for Help

The question I am most often asked on here is this: how did you do it? How did you get sober? It seems like such a simple question, but the answer is complex. For some people struggling for years with addiction, I’m sure loved ones and significant others are always asking the question, “why now?” in terms of getting sober.
