Trying To Be All Things To All People?

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW presents:
Entitled to Overcome (Solutions for Life Today)
with Dave Fleming & the Monty’man

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Sometimes our lives get so busy and so filled with the expectations of others that we attempt to meet everyone’s needs. In recovery, we may say yes to every service position that comes available. In doing this we may become somewhat of a Chameleon specializing in adapting to whatever situation we are in and losing our true self in the attempt to be all things to all people. When this happens, burn out is sure to follow and we can run the risk of relapse. Our recovery fellowships just as our families are filled with unique and different folks. It is easy to become a different person when we walk into our Twelve Step meetings and an entirely different man or women once we arrive back home, our workplace or our social network. Are we trying to fit in everywhere at all times and juggle everything to please others or fulfill the unreasonable expectations we have put on ourselves?

Independent or Dependent?

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW presents: Entitled to Overcome (Solutions for Life Today) with Dave Fleming & the Monty’man

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Independent or Dependent?

We celebrate Independents Day as a victory celebration over the freedom we now have as a country that is independent of others. Whatever your opinion is on that matter, one thing we know to be true is that we never want to become completely dependent on anyone or anything other than our God, but is there ever a healthy dependency in our journey of recovery? Is there a time to be dependent and a time to break away and become independent? What about our dependency on substances and needing the approval of others. When does independence demand that we become emotionally sober?

Inventory Takers

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW
With Toni J., Denver W., Marv R., and the Monty’man

ABOUT THIS SHOW: The Fourth Step in most Twelve Step fellowships states that we are to, Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Though this Step does not suggest that we take other people’s inventory, is there ever a time when to do so would be appropriate? Is there a difference between making an observation and taking someone’s inventory? Have you ever been confronted with a harsh word from someone who was taking your inventory? Have you ever taken another person’s inventory and felt that it was the right thing to do?

Pain and Anguish

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW

About the Show:

It has been said that in life pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional, but is it? The truth is, we sometimes give these pat answers and comments without considering what a person’s pain and anguish has been like. In this episode of the Take 12 Recovery Radio show we will be discussing the difference between pain and anguish and share some of our experience with both.

Why Do You Stay Sober?

ENTITLED TO OVERCOME
(Solutions for Life, Today) A Take 12 Recovery Radio Broadcast

Topic: Why do you stay sober?

After reading over 200 responses to this question, it became clear that there are as many answers to this question as there are people in recovery, but one thing most of them had in common was that people stay sober today because they don’t want to go back to the life they lived while in their active addiction. But, is there more to it than simply wanting to avoid the consequences of our actions while drunk or high? Tune into and find out as we discuss the topic on this episode of Entitled to Overcome.
