    Tribe Sober - inspiring an alcohol free life!
    ”Unfurling” with Lisa Bennett

    Tribe Sober - inspiring an alcohol free life!

      My guest this week is author Lisa Bennett.  After a career in marketing she ditched the booze in her early 50's, left her job and wrote a book about the joys of sobriety.  Her book is called “Unfurling” and emphasises how many aspects of our lives will change when we stop using alcohol to numb our feelings and our dreams. Lisa lives in Maryland with her husband, her mom, two cats and a dog.  She enjoys paddleboarding, yoga and dancing in the kitchen! In this Episode Lisa started drinking in her teens and says that her first 6 years of drinking created deep pathways in her brain. The heady combination of being away from home and having access to cheap alcohol together with the fact that she was a bit shy meant drinking was a great way to connect and fit in with the other students. On reflection Lisa realises she could have done so much better at college if she hadn't been partying so much! After college she went to live in the heart of New York City where the party continued! So easy to go out drinking and pour herself into a cab to get home. So she left NY at the age of 29 with a very well established drinking habit – 3 or 4 nights out a week was the norm and like many of us Lisa discovered she had no “off” switch She ended up in an AA meeting as research for a work related project – that experience simply confirmed to her that she was “not an alcoholic” as she didn't relate to the people there – so she had a drink on the way home to celebrate! This also happened to me and with hindsight we agreed that we shouldn't be comparing ourselves with the hard core alcoholics in AA – we should be comparing ourselves with the best version of ourselves that we could be – quite simply alcohol will prevent us from reaching our potential in life Going back to Lisa she of course tried to moderate – and set and broke “the rules” many times We talked about “rock bottom” and how crazy it is to wait for “rock bottom” – the trick is to get off that slippery slope the moment you realise you are on it! We talked about wake up calls – as she reached her 40's Lisa found she could no longer predict the effect that a few drinks was going to have on her – I also experienced that and now realise that it's a real warning sign of dependence She explained how a relatively modest amount of alcohol had led her to a blackout which ended in her throwing charcoal up to her bedroom window to wake up her husband in the early hours – as she puts in “she will never forget the disappointed look on her husband's face as he came downstairs to let her in!” We talked of the difficulty of being a woman who drinks – we mustn't “get drunk” because that's not cool but if we don't drink we are no fun! In fact Lisa's husband told her that he didn't think she had to give up drinking completely – this was a few months into sobriety so Lisa was able to remind him of all the things she had started doing that she never would have done had she still been drinking This attitude of well meaning friends and relatives is another reason why we need a sober community – they will just tell us to “cut down” – not realising that we've crossed the line into dependence and cutting down is not an option. Go to tribesober.com and hit “join our tribe” if you need a community who understands what its like to have tried (and failed) to cut down over and over One day Lisa very wisely realised that she was getting no “joy” from her drinking anymore – and that it was taking too much away from her For most of us it actually takes a period of sobriety before we recognise that we gain so much more than we lose when we ditch the booze – so well done to Lisa for having that insight when she was still drinking! Lisa's turning point was reading an essay by Laura McCowen called “Am I an Alcoholic” –  https://www.lauramckowen.com/blog/am-i-an-alcoholic We are great fans of Laura here at Tribe Sober and her book title “We are the Luckiest” just about sums up how we feel once we've ditched the booze and learnt to thrive in our sobriety Like all of us Lisa had to “do the work” in early sobriety – her husband and friends were still drinking so she would often go to bed early when the socialising got difficult She also had to work on “uncoupling” everyday experiences from alcohol – as she put it alcohol was so woven into her daily life she was not entirely sure whether she enjoyed various activities or if it was just the alcohol she was enjoying For example she thought she enjoyed cooking and it was part of her identity that she was a “good cook” but once she removed the wine from her cooking experience she realised it wasn't really her passion after all! This raises an interesting point about how we lose touch with what we really like doing when we drink – for example you may discover that your Drinking Buddies are not that fascinating after all and that you would rather be learning to do something creative instead of spending time with them Sobriety really is a journey of self discovery – bumpy at first and then full of joy – it's an “Unfurling” of who we really are Lisa explained that she has built a lot of emotional strength in sobriety – by pushing out of her comfort zone and engaging in new activities and just by learning how to socialise sober. She's gained so much confidence since being sober – confidence non drinkers would have built up at a much younger age! Alcohol saps our motivation to “Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway” to quote one of my favourite book titles. We stay trapped in our boozy little rut. Lisa's been trying so many new things since she got sober – aerial yoga, spinning classes and creative writing – and she's written and published a book. Her accomplishments are a reminder that we will never reach our potential in life if we are drinking – as she says “I'm so glad I gave myself a chance to see what I could do in sobriety” I asked her for some tips for newbies and she suggested journaling – obviously not everybody is a writer like Lisa but she recommended getting some journal prompts from people like Glennon Doyle Getting outside in nature is essential – it helps us to realise we are part of something so much bigger – and to be in the moment She also recommended doing a Challenge and finding Facebook Groups which means I'm going to give ours a plug We have a brand new Facebook Group called “Sober Sprinters” where we hosted our recent “5 day Sober Sprint” – that Sprint is over now but there is so much engagement on there we decided to keep it open as a home for all future Challenges.  Just search Sober Sprinters in FB and come join the conversation. Lisa's book is called “Unfurling” and describes how different aspects of her life “unfurled” as she quit drinking – it's available on Amazon and you can also find it on her website which is called www.lisamaybennett.com I loved Lisa's book which is a mixture of her story mixed with plenty of inspiration – her time in New York City as a twenty something made me think of all that cocktail drinking we used to watch in the Sex and the City series! We both agreed that stopping drinking was just the beginning and that's what makes the decision to quit such a gamechanger – it really alters the trajectory of your future More Info Subscription membership – you can join up HERE.

    Have you noticed that you're drinking more coffee in sobriety? Recent surveys from the National Coffee Association have found that 70% of Americans drink coffee every week, and 62% drink it daily. Surveys on people in AA found that 90% drink coffee daily. That's a big difference. Lots of people recently have been mentioning that they drink way more coffee in recovery, so Gill thought she'd try to find out why we do that. In this episode you'll learn how caffeine affects the brain, how the brain adapts when we drink a lot of coffee regularly, and some really interesting information about caffeine and cravings for alcohol. She will also compare caffeine to alcohol for a few different factors like addictiveness, tolerance, and withdrawal.

    Continuing to do anything in our daily lives usually means getting better at it. And so it goes with Step Ten of AA Alcoholics Anonymous. Nobody ever really enjoys admitting to being wrong, it's much easier to blame others. Admitting when we are wrong and promptly being accountable for our side of the street is absolutely necessary in order for us to maintain our spiritual progress in recovery. The best part about practicing the Tenth Step of AA in our daily lives is that the more we exercise self-discovery, honesty, humility, and reflection, the fewer apologies, and amends we have to make! The exact wording of step 10 is: We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it. Tonight, we talk about Step 10. http://recoveredcast.com 3:25 To skip the intro This week,  Todd, Betsy, Teresa, Becky, Kim, Shelly, Amanda, D&E, Christy, Lori Made their Sustaining Partner Donations http://recoveredcast.com/partner for more information This episode is sponsored by  Kurt, Teresa, Donald They used the donation button found on our website at recoveredcast.com/donation

    Courtney's backstory is not dissimilar to those who grew up in tumultuous families in which alcoholism was present. The seeming frivolity and celebratory aspects of drinking cloaked the actual dysfunction that was occurring in the family. By the time she was drinking on a regular basis in her teenage years, Courtney's budding alcoholism had become yet another family secret to bear. Though she was mostly a binge drinker, the negative effects of the disease were happening more frequently when, at 21 years of age, Courtney checked herself into an inpatient treatment center in Canada. Ironically, despite her emotional gloom and desperate need for help, her family tried to dissuade her from going into treatment. Fortunately, Courtney's desire to get help prevailed over the family denial of her problem. She got the help she needed in treatment and actually stopped drinking, for a while. But, like many alcoholics who believe inpatient treatment and some aftercare are an all-sufficient solution, she failed to truly engage with AA. She found herself drinking again within months. It took Courtney many more years of living in alcoholic despair and emotional turmoil for her to hit bottom. By mid-2014, with a waning desire to even stay alive, she entered AA and found hope at last. She began regular attendance of meetings and found a dedicated sponsor with whom she worked the steps. Her daily surrender to a higher power, combined with a close fellowship of women and regular service work, moved her into the proverbial center of the Program where she resides one day at a time. The many gifts she has given and received are indicative of her active involvement in Alcoholics Anonymous. In all respects, they are proof-positive of the change the Program can create for those who are ready and willing to go to any lengths to stay sober. Courtney's willingness to share her story has been a fine gift to me and I'm thrilled to share it with you. It's a story that has enough similarities for everyone to identify with, yet enough differences to assure even the most skeptical listeners that the program of Alcoholics Anonymous is effective beyond any shadow of a doubt. As you listen to this episode of AA Recovery Interviews, I hope you'll find Courtney's story as intriguing as I have. So, please enjoy the next 60 minutes with my friend and AA sister, Courtney P.

    Episode 390  - The Secret to Change   Today we have Jess.   She is 37, from Ontario, and has been sober since May 7, 2022.   Ditch the Booze Mindfulness Course starts 9/20.:  https://www.recoveryelevator.com/cafere/   Recovery Fit – Paul Lapine.  Lapine Fitness Center.  https://Lapinefit.com/recoveryfit Insta:Paul_Lapine_   Highlights from Paul   YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE IT! Anyone who doesn't quit quitting eventually creates distance from alcohol. “The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not fighting the old, but building the new.” Socrates. This journey is about transformation. It's an invitation to create a life where alcohol isn't needed. It's about letting part of you go. It's about saying goodbye to the aspects of your life that aren't working,   Paul suggests fighting the old is a waste, and addiction is a messenger letting you know your life is out of balance. Desperation leads to surrender, which leads to openness and willingness.   Don't resist change as it is one constant you can count on.   Music Submissions - email edited versions to: info@recoveryelevator.com   Better Help:  www.betterhelp.com/elevator - 10% off your first month. #sponsored                                                                               [11:31]  Jess has been sober for two months. She is an accountant for a rehab hospital and enjoys reading, camping, cooking, and paddleboarding with her dog. She lives in Ontario, Canada, and has two children.   Jess came from a family of drinkers. Her Dad was a heavy drinker. She started experimenting with alcohol in her early teens. At age 14, her Dad died suddenly, and her Mom's mental health deteriorated as a result.    Jess hosted parties and smoked pot. Since her family didn't talk about things, drinking was an escape. All her friends drank and smoked, so it seemed commonplace. At one point, she started skipping school, and her sister intervened. Jess slowed down and appreciated the attention from her sister.    After high school, she took some random jobs and habitually stopped working, excusing her behavior with feigned sicknesses. She made lots of excuses but never addressed the root problem. She quit her jobs before she got fired.   Her temper flared when her drinking hit a certain point, and she became a monster.   Jess moved back in with her Mom to curb expenses, and her drinking slowed slightly. Six months later, she moved in with her boyfriend, and they were drinking buddies.    Jess got pregnant and abstained throughout her pregnancy but picked up again as soon as the baby was born. She bought into the “mommy wine culture .”Her Mom had dementia. Being around someone with dementia was difficult, and Jess' drinking escalated. Eventually, she went to an online AA meeting and cried. She felt so welcomed. She counted minutes to hours, and finally, it got easier. She is now grateful to be present with her kids and is learning to like herself.    Kris's Summary   Kris is looking forward to Recovery Elevator's sober retreat. Kris has learned to listen to others, be present, and hold space for them. He has fun with his sober people. Kris encourages listeners to find their way to go deeper and have some fun.

    We're back in 1982 after a hiatus covering the seaborne operations and an update from the SA Air Force which had had a busy May as you heard in Episode 64. Things on the ground in SWA showed that SWAPO was almost fully recovered from the hammering they took during Operation Protea – their own Operation had killed three farmers and 8 security force personnel. 32 Battalion continued to carry out a number of projects – and in particular the long-term Operation Spiderweb hearts and minds initiative in the Kavango which I spoke about last episode. A number of other ops were planned to take place back to back and code named Operation Meebos which had actually started in March, aimed at the area around Xangona-Humbe-Ongiva. The aim of Operation Meebos was to keep FAPLA out of the two main southern Angolan towns Xangongo and Ongiva which had been seized during Operation Protea– in an area the Angolans called the Fifty Military Region. It's ironic that the biggest loss in the upcoming op was actually caused by a SWAPO team armed with AA guns.

And if you really like Your Anxiety Toolkit, I'd appreciate you telling a friend (maybe even two). EPISODE TRANSCRIPTION  This is Your Anxiety Toolkit - Episode 296.  Welcome back, everybody. I am so fired up for this episode. Oh, I just love this stuff. I love it. I love it. I love it.  Okay. Let's get started. First of all, let's do an “I did a hard thing.” This one is epic. This one is from Fisher and they said:  “I have OCD, health anxiety, and panic disorder. And last year, I was diagnosed with POTS,” which is postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. That is the chronic illness that I have also. And they've said: “This was very overwhelming for me. I was petrified of exercising because of the exercise intolerance that comes with POTS and worrying that it was a life-threatening cardiac issue.” Oh, I am with you, Fisher. So, for those of you who don't know what exercise intolerance is, it's like it's almost impossible to do exercise. When you stand up, you pass out. And when I've been triggered by POTS, it's hard to even do a block around, walk around the block of my house.  “My doctor did all the cardiac tests to rule out any underlying issues before diagnosing me with POTS and recommended cardiac reconditioning to help me get started with recovery. My first barrier to overcome this was to trust in my physician and their diagnosis and follow their recommendation for exercise therapy. My second barrier was facing my fear of exercising. I can now say that I'm in my last week of the program after going twice a week for three months, along with exercising on my own at home. It's been a struggle. There are some days where I flare up.” I hear you, Fisher. I totally get you. “And it seems impossible, but accessing self-compassion, budgeting spoon usage for the day, and moving things around to allow myself to rest have been invaluable tools to help me with the experience. A wise person told me after my diagnosis, the only predictable thing about living with a chronic illness is that it is unpredictable. So, I try to accept that uncertainty as a part of my life, living with anxiety and POTS.” Fisher, I just love you. You're killing it here. “I have a lot of work to do in learning to live with my chronic illness and my OCD and health anxiety recovery, but I make a little progress each and every day. P.S. Would you consider doing an episode on coping with chronic illness that mirror anxiety symptoms like POTS? I'd love to hear the skills that have helped you and some of you recommend coping strategies. Thanks for all the hard work that you do on this podcast.” Fisher, I would love to have you on the podcast. I am going to write it in my notes to reach out to you because I think this is such an important topic, one that I myself have gone through, and thank you for writing this. You are doing badass, amazing hard work. So, yay. Thank you. You will hear from me. If you don't hear from me, reach out, because I think that would be wonderful.  Okay. Let's take a breath because that brought up a lot for me. I just feel such deep compassion for Fisher and all of you who are just doing the hard thing. So, so cool.  All right. Quickly, review of the week from Mosley23. They said: “I've been listening for several years and can say that this podcast has helped immensely to understand my OCD and anxiety. Kim and her guests have provided very helpful ideas, strategies, and encouragement that have been so key in helping me to get to a good place with my mental health. Could not recommend it more highly if you or someone you love have an anxiety disorder.” Thank you so much, Mosley23. Your reviews mean the world to me. The world really. Really, it's so helpful. And again, if you give a review, and I know specifically what episode you're talking about or what specific thing, it means then I can do more of that and help more people. So, yay.    All right. Let's talk about recovery. It's taking all of my energy not to bang my hands down on the table and be like, “Let's do it.”  All right. So, I take walks every morning and I often listen to podcasts or audiobooks. I'm a big self-help, non-fiction kind of gal. And I'm often listening to these most motivating speakers and it gets me so fired up. This morning, I got so fired up because this is such a part of the work of being a clinician. We get trained on all the theory and the statistics and the diagnoses, but we don't get taught very well how to help a client identify what is your recovery goal. What are you here for? And so, even though you, listener, loving beautiful person, human friend – even though you're not here for therapy, because this is not therapy, I want you to be really intentional about your recovery goals.  Why is that important? Because, when you're dealing with a mental health issue, you've already got a full-time job. You're working your butt off to manage that. And sometimes we can put our attention so much on the disorder instead of making time and carving time and having a mindset towards, what do I want life to look like once I recover and how can I use that recovery goal to fuel the work I'm doing now while I'm in the trenches? So, what I'm not saying here is, list off 20 magical things that will happen to you in the future when you get rid of your anxiety disorder, because that just means now you have an additional list of things to check off and it's overwhelming and anxiety producing. So, I'm not talking about just lists. I'm talking about getting clear on what you want life to be like, even if anxiety is there.  So, let me ask you. You guys know, I love questions. First question, what does your recovery dream look like? What do you wish it looked like? So, often when I ask that to clients, their first response is, they put their hand on the buzzer and they're like, “Pick me.” I don't want anxiety and I don't want that to be your goal. So, the absence of an emotion is not a recovery goal. We need anxiety. If you didn't have anxiety, you'd put your hand on the hot plate. You'd jam your hand in the door. We need anxiety. So, try not to make that your goal. I'm talking about specifically, zoom in and imagine that you are the ring camera on your house. What would be happening in your house, around your house, around your life? How would you be interacting with the world? That's the stuff I'm really interested in knowing.  So, for me it's like, okay, if I was in my fullest recovery, I would be with my kids. I would be helping my clients and my listeners and my followers. I would be a connected wife. I would be a wife that shows up for my husband, even when it's tough and we've got stuff to work out. I'd be someone who still has good days and bad days. But the bad days I just keep showing up, like it's a beautiful day to do hard things. I'd be that person. I'd embody “it's a beautiful day to do hard things.” That's what recovery would look like for me. It might not be that for you. And please don't just use mine because mine is just for me. Make it specific for you and look at that, write it down. Because in those answers, in those questions and answers is all of the details in which you can start to implement today.  So, example being, if that was my recovery goal, what can I do today? I can get down on the floor and I can play with my kids, even if anxiety is there. I can go to my husband and say, “How are you? How are you really?” And practice staying in the moment and practice listening instead of letting my anxiety do all the talking. I still do the talking, but I'm listening to my partner, not to my anxiety. I'm practicing this and it's not perfect. I might even suck at it. That's fine. But I'm already working towards the recovery that I want, the life that I want, the dream that I want.  While I have anxiety, and if it's there, I'm also going to bring myself into intention that my goal was to help people, to be of service, to show up for you guys and have a couple of giggles and be myself because that's a huge goal for me, to be more myself, which means I have to share a few layers of professionalism and just show up as Kimberley, the imperfect, giggly, silly, goofy, all-over-the-place Kimberley. So, I'm working towards that, whether anxiety is there or not. And by practicing that, I'm already 20 steps towards the recovery goal because I got down-dropped into what was it that I was looking for? So, this is the work, guys. Don't use this recovery list as a list of expectations that you tell you, you won't ever get to. Instead, use it as a way to implement it today.  Now, what I just said is the perfect segue into identifying the next question I had in my prep for this. Are you living according to old stories or your recovery goal? Because often, if we've made mistakes in the past or we've struggled in the past or we have messed up in the past, as we're engaging with our goals, we're telling ourselves a story. What's the point? Look at that, what I wrote down. Like, I want to show up for my followers and listeners. I want to be a wife that's engaged and connected. I want to be a mom that's on the floor playing with their kids. I want to be a therapist that is just pouring my heart into the people. So, that's my list.  But if I'm living according to old stories, I'd go, “Yeah, that's not going to happen because you totally screwed up with that one client that time, and you totally said something inappropriate to that one person and offended them and harmed them.” And so, you're just, “Nah.” You think you don't deserve to have that recovery or it's just not possible for you, Kimberley. That's what we call a fixed mindset. You're living off of old stories. “No, I couldn't do it in the past. I tried. So, there's no point. There's my recovery list. I'll never get there.” That's old stories.  And the whole point of me talking with you every week on doing the “I did a hard thing” segment isn't just because-- well, yes, it's because I love it. I ain't going to lie. I love it so much. But the whole point I do that is so that you guys can see baby steps lead to medium size steps, leads to large steps. And you mess up and you totally screw up. I've done whole episodes about this in the past. Just recently actually. You mess up and then you go, “Okay, I'm going to just do one more.” It's going to try one more time, and one more time. The whole AA approach, if you have an addiction, if you go to alcoholics anonymous is one more day. And there's some research around that model because it helps you just to stay in the short term, doing today, not looking at the long term, and changing the story.  The next question I have is, are you really clear of what recovery will look like, and does that line up with your values? The reason I ask that, and that's the final question of this episode, is when I ask my patients like, “Okay, let's get a recovery plan together. What are your treatment goals? What do you want to look like once therapy is done? How would we define that?” Often, because they've been trained and conditioned from society to be this, they're like, “Okay, so I want to have a house and I want a car and I want to have 100,000 followers on Instagram and I want to be a size blobbidy blah.” And it's just like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Is that what society told you or is that actually what you want? Do you actually value those things? Are they coming from a place of getting other people's approval or are they coming from a place of what really feels good to you, really feels good? What feels true to your values? Because yeah, it's easy to say, “I want to have this many dollars in the bank,” or “I want to have achieved a certain thing.” That's fine. I'm not against that. In fact, I love that kind of thing. I love goals. But I first want you to ask yourself, why? Why do you want that goal? Is it because you want approval or is it because you want to prove you're worth? Because if it's any of those two things, it's probably going to be a painful process. Because, number one, you won't get approval from other people that's long-lasting because that depends on their mood and their values themselves, and you won't get up to a place where you feel worthy because you've based that on a conditional relationship. The only way we can actually build self-worth is to drop all the conditions and recognize that you're worthy right now, whether you reach this goal, this recovery goal or not. It's not a condition. The thing to remember here is your worth doesn't go up if you reach these goals. Please remember that. Your worth is the same whether you reach them or not. You're a valuable, important human being that deserves love and kindness. So, just keep an eye on that. I'm sorry, I'm going on a little tangent there, but it's so important as you embark on getting really clear. And I really want you to be really, really clear. I really do.  I'll use a really ridiculous example, and mind me, I understand that this is a very privileged example, but my daughter is going off to middle school. She's going to a school that's very far away. And so, I have to engage in a carpool. We have a four-wheel-drive that we use to do all of the outdoor stuff that we do. So, I need a bigger car to fit seven people. And so, I'm trying to get really clear on values as I buy this car. I understand this is a ridiculous example, but let's use it as an example. As I go to buy a car, what do I want to feel when I get in the car? What are the things that matter to me? Is it the brand? Do I have to drive a Mercedes Benz or is it the functions? Is it the way it makes me feel? Is it the color? Is it the way my kids feel? That will help me to make a decision. So, I drop down into, really what do I want? What's important to me? Is it important for me to have technology or is it important for me to have ease? Is it important for me to have technology or pay less for this car? And so, it's asking questions. Don't go overboard here, but asking questions so I get really clear on what matters to me, what values matter in this decision.  So, again, I get the ridiculous privilege of that whole question, but they're the questions I want you to ask about you, because you deserve that. When you make decisions about your recovery and your life, you want to ask the questions that are detailed so that you can pivot in those areas. It doesn't have to be perfect, but get clear on what you want recovery to look like. Because if you don't, you'll probably find that you're wavering around feeling directionless, not sure why you're doing all these hard things, feeling like, what's the point really? But when you know exactly what the outcome you want is, you'll know exactly the point.  Okay. I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you. Thank you for being here. It is a beautiful day to do hard things. I hope that was helpful. I will talk to you guys next week, and have a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful day. By the time you hear this, I'll be back in the United States from my trip. If you want to go back and listen to the old episodes, I encourage you to do that. All the goodness is right there in those early ones.  Have a wonderful day, everybody. Talk to you soon.

And in my conversations, I would really sell how good I was at “AA.” I got really good at telling these elaborate stories about my journey, who I was, and all the things I'd done and accomplished. And that worked with a lot of people, but just to the point where they would say “Wow you've done a lot for a young guy,” a stroke of my ego, which seemed to be what I was going for. What I realized very quickly, though, was the more I made the conversation about myself, the less referrals and introductions I got. I even had one person tell me “Donnie, I can't introduce you because I don't think my clientele is the caliber of business you need to be working with.” So all of those techniques I was using would have worked if I was looking to make zero profits and have zero sales. So if you're going into networking and making it all about you, all you're doing is making yourself non referable.

    Growing up in Brooklyn, New York, Gerry's road to utter ruin began with pot, pills, and intravenous drug use at 15. Living as a heroin addict for the next ten years, his sordid lifestyle supported his addiction until he was able to stop heroin through methadone treatment for the next ten years. With his life spiraling out of control after two decades as a dope addict, Gerry was finally able to get off the drugs thanks to vodka. Unfortunately, drinking upwards of two quarts of vodka, while still smoking marijuana and snorting cocaine, soon confirmed how out-of-control his alcoholic life had become. By the time Gerry found AA in early 1990, he entered the local AA club a broken and desperate man. Fortunately, the members of that club gathered him in and showed him through tough love the work he would need to do in the Program to stay sober. With little faith that Alcoholics Anonymous would work, Gerry did what was asked, including attending the men's meeting in which I first met him. Frankly, it took me a while to get used to this guy with the gravely voice and thick New York accent, but, eventually, his story melted my heart and we became very close friends. He's stayed sober the entirety of our friendship. Gerry's life in sobriety has always been chock-full of meetings and service work, mostly at his home AA club. I've seen him face some very difficult situations over the years with the kind of hope and perseverance that genuinely inspire other people. He never hesitates to welcome new-comers and those returning from a slip. His booming laugh in conversation manifests the joy Gerry gleans from sobriety and is a healthy invitation for others to share his mirth and his enthusiasm for the Program. I'm always glad when I see Gerry in a meeting and, though I'm usually sure I know what he's going to say on any given topic, I never tire of hearing it. His relaxed and jocular way of relating his experiences in sobriety is steeped in hopefulness and wisdom. His absolute assurance that AA works, if you work it, comes through loud and clear every time he's called on a meeting. I think you'll get a meaningful kick out of my interview with Gerry R. and invite you to gather up others to listen to this episode of AA Recovery Interviews.

    “Every A.A. has found that he can make little headway in this new adventure of living until he first backtracks and really makes an accurate and unsparing survey of the human wreckage he has left in his wake.” Remember, you have acted with courage working all of your previous steps in AA and staying sober! With Step Eight you have the opportunity to translate your experience of courage into developing a compassionate spirit. The exact wording of step 8 is: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. “The readiness to take the full consequences of our past acts, and to take responsibility for the well-being of others at the same time, is the very spirit of Step Nine.” At this point in our step work, we may be trudging the road to happy destiny, but we've reached the point where we must repair what we left behind us on a path of shattered relationships.  Step Nine of AA Alcoholics Anonymous is the perfect time to let go of the horrible way we feel about our past and to repair relationships radically. Living with the leftover guilt and shame from past wrongdoings prevents us from moving forward and puts us at risk of using again! The exact wording of step 9 is: Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

    Episode 389  - Journal Speak   Today we have Christy.   She is 42, from Denmark, and has been sober since April 5, 2022.     Costa Rica 2023:  https://www.recoveryelevator.com/costarica2023/     Exact Nature:  https://exactnature.com/RE 20   Highlights from Paul   Paul talks about “journal speak,” an informal, off-the-cuff style of journaling. The point is to get unprocessed, uncomfortable emotions out of you. It makes you feel less alone and more connected to yourself. This is a significant component connecting with the raw, unheard, vulnerable, pissed-off version of you. When you feel a craving coming on, this is one of the best times to do this because a part of you is screaming to be heard.   Paul suggests starting with 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes at night. Make it informal, with no spelling or grammar check, and toss or burn it when you finish. Generally, you will find that you feel better and have cleared your mind.   Better Help:  www.betterhelp.com/elevator - 10% off your first month. #sponsored                                                                               [10:58]  Christy has been sober for eighty days.   She lives in Denmark, is from North Carolina, and is an agile coach in IT. She is married with two children,   Christy describes herself as a boring child who didn't get into trouble. She was active in sports and music. Alcohol was always present in her life. She remembers the DARE program in high school and decided to avoid drugs and alcohol. She met her husband and married young. Christy drank socially, but there were no red flags.   In 2004, her father was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was age 47. Christy knew she needed to be strong. He passed in 2007. Unaware of how to process the grief, Christy pushed through, went through some counseling, and had a baby. After giving birth, she experienced anxiety and high blood pressure. She spiraled downward. Alcohol was a great way to shut down her brain. She gave birth to her second son and immediately returned to drinking and felt okay because the Mommy wine culture made it alright.   When moving to Denmark, she knew she needed to address her drinking because she had started sneaking alcohol. The geographic solution didn't work. The trauma of her Dad's death brought on emotions Christy could not process. She began taking days off and going to the liquor store early while her husband was at work and her kids were in school. Her drinking progressed, and she could secretly consume a whole bottle of wine. Her panic attacks got worse, and she didn't realize it was the progression of her drinking that was causing the panic attacks.    Christy told her doctor about her problem. She started listening to recovery podcasts and saw a new counselor to deal with her grief and health anxiety. Her self-talk was, “don't think, drink.”  The anxiety was debilitating. She was depressed and had the shakes and the shame of uncontrollable drinking.    COVID and having the kids home 24/7 was challenging. When she got to the point where her children had to put her to bed, she knew she had hit rock bottom. Her marriage was in jeopardy.    Christy enjoys Café RE and often hosts some of the chats. She attends AA and Smart Recovery as well. She has learned it is okay to be vulnerable and not strong. Leaning on her husband is okay.   She no longer has to be “the rock.”  Her anxiety has improved, and her counseling is helping. Her greatest joy is that her son says he has his mom back.      Paul's Summary   Paul talks about the anxiety that came with trying to fix his printer. He loves that he has learned to let emotions flow through him. Paul believes in all the listeners.   Upcoming events, retreats, and courses: You can find more information about our events   Resources Connect with Cafe RE - Use the promo code OPPORTUNITY to waive the set-up fee.
