  • For addicts and alcoholics and al-anons, the moment of clarity experience is usually the catalyst that turns despair into hope and the helplessness of addiction and codependency into the promise of recovery.

 

What does the phrase moment of clarity mean to you?

 

  • Addiction is an illness that blends fact and fiction to the point that users often find themselves in hard shells of denial. The birth of recovery starts only when the truth breaks through that shield. Sometimes it happens instantaneously.

 

How were you lying to yourself about your condition?

Why did you lie about your condition?

How did this hurt you?

What was the result of this way of life?

How did the pain of a double life manifest itself?

Was it hard to keep your lies straight?

 

Ready to take some calls?

  • Sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly, it always takes a moment of clarity for codependents, addicts and alcoholics to understand the utter futility of their lives under the influence.

 

What was your moment of clarity?

How did it feel just before?

What did you do?

How did you feel?

What happened?

 

What steps are part of this process?

How does a higher power work during this moment of clarity?

What about a sponsor, what role did he/she have?

How about meetings, did you rely on a group at all to process?

Thanks for supporting the Recovered Podcast by using our app.  I just wanted to send a note to our app owners that the 12 Hour Podcast will be help in June this year.  i recently was contacted by an Al-Anon and she wanted to listen to last years show.  This was my response

 

Thanks a bunch for contacting me.  The 12-hour podcast is indeed a fundraiser in the memory of my late son who died on July 2, 2012.  Andrew took me to my first meeting when he was 6 months clean and 16 years old.  That was 11 years ago this March 17th.  I have been clean ever since and Andrew saved my life. Sadly, tragically, Andrew struggled with his heroin addiction and then finally committed suicide on July 2, 2012 after another relapse. Our hearts are broken and we can never be the same.

 
In an effort to cope with grief, I came up with the idea to honor something that was important to Andrew.  Dawn Farm, a local recovery center, is a place that Andrew supported by taking their clients to meetings during their stay in detox.  I decided to do a fundraiser event and give the proceeds to Dawn Farm in Andrew's name.  Our Recovered Podcast community really supported us through the 12 Hour Podcast and we collected enough funds to support 6 people into detox in Andrew's name.  This is a miracle in our life.  A miracle that something good can come as a result of our tragedy.  We would be honored if you decided to join us.
 
The 12-hour podcast is part of our back catalog and can only be accessed by our premium subscribers.  The latest 20 episodes of the Recovered Podcast are always free.  But the older episodes are part of our back catalog.  Here is information about Premium Subscription.
