From Sobriety To Recovery: An Addiction Recovery Podcast
Don’t over complicate it, Ep 101

Don’t over complicate it, Ep 101

January 20, 2021

False emotions appearing real. That's one of my favorite acronyms for FEAR and it is often at the heart of our procrastination, buffering, and down right quitting. When you over complicate something, when you are consistently getting ready to get ready to start, when you are attempting to plan out 117 steps in advance in hopes you will cover any possible issue that might arise - this is you over complicating something.

Let's get back to basics. Let's start with the next smallest step. Let's build moment. Everything you desire in your sobriety, addiction recovery, and life is on the other side of your mindset.

4 sober years, 100 episodes, and heaps of gratitude

4 sober years, 100 episodes, and heaps of gratitude

January 12, 2021

The journey continues, it's just a new day in my life, and yet the significance of each passing year is not lost on me, nor do I anticipate that it ever will be.

Four years sober, January 13th, 2021. And the 100th episode of this show!! In the same week!! This was totally not planned out a year ago. About 8 weeks out, when I realized this could all happen together, I began the "Back to Basics" series to move us forward on our journey while keeping a heartfelt admiration for where we have journeyed from.

I go over some of my greatest hits in this episode:

It's the journey NOT the destination that brings us the greatest evolution

The Power of Yet

The importance of the words and language patterns we use

Beating ourselves up and getting down on ourselves is counter-productive

Response vs Reaction

We choose how to respond or react to the world

Our choice is our power

And So Many More.

Above and Beyond I just want to thank everyone who listens to this show, those in my inner circle, second circle, and beyond. Just the gratitude I have for JR, Melissa, Thomas, Thom, Dad, Brother, Debbie, Anad, Melissa, Les, Armin - I am sure there are others due a loving mention in here and the last and definitely first on this list from my heart, my strength even though she may not believe it is my sister Leslie, aka Boo Boo. I am not sure what path I would have taken in the Fall of 2016, when I broke my leg, had you not taken the huge leap of faith and stepped into sobriety first. You are truly an inspiration to me.

Mindset + Understanding + Strategy = Success

Mindset + Understanding + Strategy = Success

January 4, 2021

Ep 99 - You can choose to change anytime you desire. New Year's and the whole resolution thing is just a procrastination mechanism that has shown a very low success rate. Yes, for some of you it has worked and I commend you for being on the better side of this law of averages.

When it comes to making changes in our lives it is natural human behavior to seek out strategies to show us a way to make the changes happen. The issue I have uncovered is that strategies work great when we have already stepped into the mindset of someone who is undertaking the change process with enthusiasm and vigor. If there is a chink in the armor that is your mindset then you will be tapping into willpower - which is all fine in good if it is just temporary and the enthusiasm and discipline arrive soon after the change journey has begun.

Let's dive into this as we start the New Year so you can get your mind right around achieving the outcomes you have laid out in your goal setting. Goal accomplishing is all about traveling on the journey with your best mindset available a majority of the time. Let's make that happen.

My Top-10 of 2020

My Top-10 of 2020

December 31, 2020

Ep 98 - In no particular order I go over my top-10 of the year. I mean, picking 10 out of almost 52 is not easy - and if you ask me again in three months I'd probably pick out 5 other ones to cover. The task was 10 so here are 10 - LOL

Sobriety is simple, my Bitcoin lesson was hard

Sobriety is simple, my Bitcoin lesson was hard

December 31, 2020

Ep 97 - Sobriety is simple. I said this to my therapist and oh boy did this start a conversation. Sobriety is the act of being sober. Everything else...well, that's everything else. Let's make sure you are using the right words when you discuss your world, the reality you are creating for yourself.

I finish up this episode by discussing something that has been troubling me for the last month and bring to your attention how there are areas in your life where stepping back, taking a breathe, and responding rather than reacting is your best move.

Secondary gain - the value in having the problem over the solution! Ep #96

Secondary gain - the value in having the problem over the solution! Ep #96

December 23, 2020

When there is more value in having the problem than the solution! Isn't that a conundrum to find ourselves in? For many of us, once we hear about secondary gain a flood of memories of how it has kept us standing still, stuck in our old ways, come rushing to the forefront of our memories.

This is like four episodes in one because I cover so much, and am a bit all over the place at times - but I like to think I tighten it up at the end :) 

I'll cover for your listening pleasure...why you would want to go back? What is the psychological hold substances have over you? How you have control over your thoughts - if nothing else this year, you have that. You are not your circumstances. You are an accumulation of your thoughts, feelings, actions, beliefs, values - and all that adds up to your general thoughts about who you are.

Oh boy, talk about a jam packed hour. And I recorded the whole thing as an IG Live so go check that out. It's titled, "episode 96 - secondary gain."

Alone vs Loneliness, Ep #95

Alone vs Loneliness, Ep #95

December 15, 2020

Alone. Lonely. What is the difference? They can be confused with one another yet they are very much not the same. As we step into 2021 let us learn the similarities and differences together so we can, as a tribe, move forward, not only with a better understanding of them both - but with a healthier mental awareness around how to combat the sadness, depression, or solitude that you may feel when you are lonely.

Lastly, we will discuss what you can do when you feel lonely and how you can go about increases the size of your social circle so your social loneliness doesn't firmly grip you. The script everyone else follows doesn't have to be yours. You get to decide, it is your choice point where your fork begins.

Resiliency, Reflection, and Remembrance, Ep #94

Resiliency, Reflection, and Remembrance, Ep #94

December 8, 2020

Being aware of one's sobriety and recovery journey is as important as ever in a world where uncertainty has fully sunk its teeth into our world. Be resilient in the face of a chaotic whirlwind - might be the working motto for 2020.

I'm gonna be up front here - this episode was going to be about how we experience the world around us and instead shifted to me talking about my mother's 65th birthday yesterday, the last conversations we ever had, how our trials and tribulations are literally the foundations which upon our strength and resiliency are built upon, and why who is looking back at you in the mirror dwarfs anything else that anyone else could possibly desire from you.

I talk bandwidth and knowing when to step back and I touch upon how living in a bubble actually leaves us more susceptible to the harms of the world and increases our fragility.

This is a hodgepodge episode that might possibly sum up in the best way possible this topsy-turvy year we have all just worked our way through.

The BIG SIX - magnetize your journey toward your desired destination, Ep 93

The BIG SIX - magnetize your journey toward your desired destination, Ep 93

December 2, 2020

These six questions are going to be your gateway to opening your mind to the possibilities of what you can achieve in 2021.

This has been one hell of a year. Wiping this one off the board isn't anymore possible than erasing the years and years we have under our belts of using and abusing ourselves.

So let's step into Gratitude and Thankfulness and get back to basics around these six questions. Answer these when you are thinking about your career, your relationships, yourself - anything you desire to manifest in your life can be born out the answers to these BIG SIX.

Ask yourself these questions and write down the answers because you will notice the answers change as you grow and evolve along your journey from Sobriety to Recovery.

What would I pursue:
1. If I didn't want money
2. If I didn't want to make a name for yourself?
3. If I didn't care what other people think?

Once you have the answers above ask yourself these questions.

4. Where are you?

5. Who are with?

6. What are you doing?”

We will revise these in the next episode as we begin the countdown to the next year, best year!

Beware of inviting other’s energy into your decisions, Ep #92

Beware of inviting other’s energy into your decisions, Ep #92

November 24, 2020

You choose to change. You choose to stay or go. To quit or continue. When you make these choices for yourself be mindful of inviting others into your decision making process. They will have their own mindset around what you are doing based on the experiences from their life. They may not be aware they are projecting their opinions, beliefs, and values on you but it is part of our human nature to generally give advice and help based on our life alone.

Even when we draw in comparisons from other people's lives, what we experienced from that other person is still run through the internal representations our mind creates around everything we have ever experienced.

When people start to hear about your plan they may inadvertently slide into the "spell caster" role - where they project their limitations upon you as if you will have the same outcome as them just because you are doing something they have a predetermined belief and value around.

Oh, and I laugh a lot in this one and use words I don't even know the definition to - so yeah, this episode is a myriad of hodge-podgy-ness. LOL
