  • (((((((Pledgers))))))))) Here's my promise not to drink or drug for this 24!

    I have noticed that almost always, when anyone steps into the circles of recovery reaching for solutions, the greatest need is not advice and rules of how not to drink or use.....they come needing to be heard. Addiction is the great silencer. The last thing anyone needs to hear coming into recovery is only to "sit down, shut up, and listen.

    There comes a time for becoming quiet and opening the mind to new and better possibilities, but first and foremost.....we need to not just listen...but to deeply and sincerely hear them. What we judge to be ramblings, nonsense, or excuses could well be the first releases of the shame, pain, and isolation they have felt for a very long time.

    There comes a time for holding up signs for guidance when it is wanted and needed...but we need to first hold up mirrors. The newer person needs to see reflections of themselves....maybe for the first time in a very long time. Reflections that give them back the gift of themselves that say things like..."I am heard...I am important...I can do this....I belong."

    Let's all be mirrors of each other again today gang!
    Big Hugs on Everyone! thomas

“Sometimes you don’t make progress, you hold on.”

“Sometimes you don’t make progress, you hold on.”

When I was new in recovery, there were many days when I felt I just wasn’t going to make it. I would see others take chips and cakes on their anniversaries, and I was pretty sure I’d be drunk tomorrow. When I met with my sponsor, he told me that even if I couldn’t see the progress I was making, others could. When he saw…
