Is there an upsurge in 12 Step bashing?

3 Comments 23 July 2014

Ok! so now what?

7 Comments 27 June 2014

Picture courtesy of Kitchener/rogerstv.com   I haven’t written much in the past three weeks. There has been so much going on I was totally preoccupied and overwhelmed. I was trying to focus-or trying not too-I’m not sure which, on the issues at hand. I just wasn’t able to write. In fact I avoided it like [...]

I am not a happy camper these past few days. I’m decisively irritable and discontent. But why? Generally life is good. I have all I need. Kids are happy and all that stuff and I’m grateful. Like really grateful for everything. But still something is just not right with me. I’m like the proverbial cat [...]

My recovery embodies many aspects including addiction to chemical substances and food issues. The other aspects of my recovery are from life traumas which include chronic illness. But the one that is [...]

Why such reluctance to care for ourselves?

5 Comments 09 April 2014

(photo courtesy of National Association of Baby Boomer Women)   Something struck me lately about some of the people I’m closest to who are also in recovery. For some reason, some of us are reluctant to take care of ourselves properly. We are all aware of our not so good physical state when we come [...]

I slept a little late today. I’m not such a great sleeper anyway, and on top of that both my kids are sick, so the little sleep I usually get was even more disturbed tending to them during the night. No big deal, it’s all part of being a mother. Every morning I begin my [...]

My powerlessness over alcohol does not cease when I quit drinking. In sobriety I still have no choice—I can’t drink. The choice I do have is to pick up and [...]
