Putting Recovery On The Map

Black-Friday Blues

11/24

Happy Black-Friday Sober Nation!

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. I’m currently freezing my ass off in Boston eating a plateful of leftovers and staying out of the mess of department stores! I would rather not deal with all the hustle and the bustle so I am personally am looking forward to Cyber Monday to get all my holiday shopping done from behind my desk.

Years ago I used to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Much like my using, I reacted with anger, self-pity, and defiance against anyone who got in my way. When I was using, all I wanted to do was to be accepted by another human being, and while shopping I just wanted to score that hot deal on the new “High-Definition TV.” All in all, I wanted that connection, whether that be to booze, another human, or an inanimate object at a good price.

However, when I got sober, I realized that the depths of the connections I made in recovery with genuine friends and with my Higher Power surpassed the ones I was trying to reach with other addictions and substances. Just like our actions of our addictions effects relationships, it does the same thing while we’re getting sober, with the adverse reaction. In sobriety I’ve mended relationships, been able to show up in a loving and joyful manner, and instead of reacting, I act. It truly is a beautiful life.

Anyway, enjoy your weekend and your week! We’ve got some great stuff for ya!

Much love,

Tim Stoddart
