(AA cliches that actually work)
SMART Recovery tool chest
Meditation in recovery
@Elle nothing particular, just wanted to create a section for links to different avenues of recovery all in one place. We’re always talking about what works for us all over this forum so I thought it would be easier to find it all here. Recovery can be other things besides addiction. Do you have a link for the worksheet you posted earlier?
Entertainment in recovery
Hobbies in recovery
Great idea @Melrm
These are awesome @Elle, thank you.
Baby steps @Elle. I was in bad shape this time last year to the point I had to do something even if it meant meds. I was a complete mess…couldn’t eat or shower or function properly. I missed a month of work. I got help and feel different. Just be patient, okay?
Hope this is still on topic. Just some tools, or maybe just distractions? Some useful for stress relief…
I found #5 helpful:
“Player 2 is a tool that helps you deal with conflict or any problem really. It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure game, but for solving personal issues.”
I thought #12 was a little creepy until I got a hug from a unicorn. Just give it a try if you need a Hug.
Nutrition in recovery
Drinking/using dreams in sobriety
Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS)
Sex in recovery article
Hey @Gemstone123 this topic has a lot of good links to look into. I can personally recommend the Smart Recovery tools. The handbook is around 12$ on Amazon or you can download their worksheets on their website for free. For me, having the handbook available to physically write things down has been a great distraction and really helped me figure out my cravings/triggers, work through them, And focus on my long-term goals. But I’d look into all the links and find what works for you-
