Loosid Sober Tip of The Day

What does it mean to ‘work’ a program of recovery?

Many people get scared off by the word ‘work’ when we hear this phrase.

Working a program of recovery is very much like anything else in life.

If we are athletes, we know what it is like to go to physical therapy in order to recover from our injury.

When we want a certain career, we need to work to get a degree or a license that will allow us to enter that field, whatever it may be.

Whether it is a truck driver, a nurse, a doctor, an electrician, a lawyer… we need to work to be able to survive and flourish.

In recovery, the only difference is a big one because ‘the work’ is a matter of life and death.

So why are so many of us unwilling to save our own lives?

Since there are no ‘credentials’, ‘licenses’ or ‘degrees’ that are laid out, millions of us do not qualify ourselves as having a problem until it is too late.

Just for today, take solace in the fact that just by reading this, you are in the right place.

Once you know you are in the right place, give yourself the gift today to start your work.

In 12-step programs, the work is clearly defined and is typically gone through with your sponsor. There are many meetings you can go to at any given time.

If you wish to follow other spiritual programs of recovery, ask questions and begin your journey today.

If you have been in recovery a while and work a spiritual program of recovery, share below the work you do to remain (emotionally) sober one day at a time.

There are many people in the Loosid community who need to hear what you have to say.

With Love, Loosid
