I am cured!  I can go show everyone how super I am doing and put myself in dangerous situations of temptation and triggers.

Right?     NO, WRONG!

If you are a pickle, you can't go back without a very high risk of setting yourself up for failure.

We say at the Center.... "The Juice Ain't Worth the Squeeze".   Essentially, no good can come out of putting ourselves in bad situations.

Building a house and building our recovery seem to have similar parallels.  What is your recovery house made of?

Mine includes meetings, ( different kinds), avoiding people, places and things, learning and sharing.  Helping others is another fantastic tool to help in our own healing as well.

Take a look at what works best for you.  Try new recovery tactics and explore what may benefit you.

We all are different in what works, but we...

Are you trying to control everything?
Is your ego getting in the way?

Can you surrender the weight you can't carry to your Higher Power or are you holding onto it?

It is humbling to surrender.  There is a correlation between gambling and using again and hanging onto all that crap that doesn't serve us.

 Today's topic of arguing is interesting to me.  I had never thought of the question I ask you here before.

Have you ever changed someone's mind by arguing your point?  I am not sure that I have.

Also, does arguing have to do with our self esteem?  Very curious today.

Today's reading is about fear.

 Getting to 4 years bet free required a lot facing fears and I still have a long way to go on this topic.

Celebrating is the theme today with a bit of reflection on fear and progress. At the 10X conference last week, I heard a mantra that I love.  It was said in the context of business..

Isn't it amazing all the things we can process and see within ourselves once we are on the recovery journey?

I hadn't really thought about intuition or identifying my .feelings this way when I was gambling.

Maybe you haven't found this point in your life yet.  That is ok too.  It is an interesting concept to navigate as we grow.

551- Living in the present is a skill to learn.

We can't dwell in the past or worry about the future.  Do you want to take in the smell of fresh mowed grass, hear your children's laughter or see a vibrant sunrise?

You need to really see and experience these things and the key to truly appreciating them are in being present.

I am sharing the link to the book I mention here.  I have read it a few time now and continue to learn e...

Are we acknowledging the freedom and opportunities we are given each day?
Do we notice that we have freedom to make choices for ourselves and our lives?

Are we still under the gambling spell that robs us of our freedom?
What freedom are you taking for granted?  Can you turn that around to gratitude?

Don't rob yourself of freedom!

There is no value into hanging onto self loathing and anger towards yourself and past actions,  other than learning from them and moving on!

Be kind to you!  Know that hanging onto those feelings increase the likelihood of you going back out again.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
