Here is a story, Marks story. Struggling with addiction is not an easy thing to do. From a cognitive-behavioral therapy point of view, Mark is learning that it takes serenity to accept that he does not control things outside of himself the he, she, it, them. It takes courage to change the three things that he does control his own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. And, it takes real wisdom to know the difference. As a take on what Aristotle has said about anger, I like to apply his words to abstinence: Anyone can become sober. That is easy. But to be sober with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way, that is not easy.  Please enjoy Marks story as a true effort to change ones thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Becoming Soul Mates and The Impact of Addiction

People often say, I married my Soul Mate. But, the fact is that no one marries their Soul Mate. Couples become Soul Mates after sharing their lives together through good and bad times. They eventually reach a point in their relationship when they are two bodies but one mind and one Soul.

Overeating Recovery:

Helping clients with Emotional Overeating Challenges

For the past 25+ years, I’ve been helping overeaters and imbalanced eaters heal their relationships with themselves, their bodies and food.  I’ve helped them stop dieting, lose excess weight and keep it off.  Even though overeating may seem like a simple act, it’s actually a complex behavior and its resolution requires a comprehensive, multidimensional approach.

Does Race Matter in the Rooms?

Transforming Tradition to Advance Racial Healing in Recovery

Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the A.A. name ought never be drawn into public controversy. 

The traditions keeps us safe.  

They preserve the sacred arena through which recovery unfolds and matures.  The traditions support a culture that nourishes one back to wholeness. The avenue they travel on is Acceptance, Compassion, and Love.
