Something hit me today. Thinking about early on recovery and how freaking scary it was. Just to take that first step. It’s the unknown. It’s the changes I was having to constantly make. It was as if I was working two full time jobs. It was hell! Scary! . . But also staying in my eating disorder or using substance to numb out is scary as hell. That leads to death. In literal terms. . . So weigh out you options tonight. You didn’t choose the addictions. It came on us as a coping mechanism to deal with the cards we were dealt. But we can choose recovery. And it’s a moment by moment choice. An hour by hour choice. A day by day choice. And you can recommit to recovery at any time! . . Keep fighting for your personal recovery because it’s worth it. And you’re worth it. You are enough! #recovery #prorecovery #addiction #addictionrecovery #substanceabuse #aa #na #12steps #itworksifyouworkit #edrecovery #edwarrior #anorexiarecovery #bulimiarecovery #ednos #orthorexiarecovery #bed #haes #2fab4ana #mentalhealth #depression #anxiety #bpd #bdd #mdd #gad #ptsd

In between our new Shark Week dvd and cooking dinner, we try and have a few minutes of chanting and spiritual music. The truth is, spirituality gets squeezed in between things that don’t look so “spiritual”. But through the meditation, chanting and devotional practices, we develop a conscious contact with our higher power at all times. The awareness that develops is quite tangible and beautiful. It doesn’t always have to be some yoga pose in the mountains or a meditation retreat. It is about that awareness when I’m stuck in traffic, doing laundry, dealing with my difficult job or when my bank account is in the negative. That’s when we see where our attachments and expectations live. Remember the saying “expectations are a premeditated resentment.” #music #parenting #sober #recovery #yoga #kirtan #life #bhakti #freedom #plantbased #addiction #recoverywarriors #spirituality #12steps #meditation #mindfulness #alcoholicsanonymous #mantra
Addiction, like other diseases, is progressive and chronic. Left untreated, it can be deadly. 💔⠀ We know that can be a hard pill to swallow, but it's important that we raise awareness about the societal epidemics we face with drug and alcohol abuse in a culture that glamorizes a party lifestyle.⠀ Just as you would receive treatment for any other disease, we strongly recommend opening yourself up to rehabilitation for drug and alcohol addiction as well.⠀ You don't have to go through this alone.. if you or someone you know is struggling, please don't hesitate to reach out and see how we can help!⠀ 😊🙏💙

Welcome @life_of_z_ to SOBERNAUTS 👨‍🚀🔻 ( Share your Sober Story with us @Sobernauts )Sober Date: April 29th 2018 I was always a party guy, I liked uppers with my booze. I use to be a binge drinker. Ya know the Friday and Saturday. Then Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Every week I started earlier. I was ruining my life, as a successful outside sales, installation tech. Etc. I was making too much money to fast. One day I woke up in a manic state and didn’t get out of it for months. One day I decided to drag myself from the depths of insanity at its finest.I stopped everything cold turkey and am now enjoying my Life!
🤘
Day 11 - Empty. Today has been just that, a little numb. Work was work but I got to see my littlest man this evening as my ex brought him over for dinner. As always it was amazing to spend time with him. What was hard though, was seeing how different my ex is with me, distant and strange to how I know her. Just watching us drift is difficult and when they left I was empty again... But I managed those feelings. An empty Day 11 #myrecoverylog #addiction #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #alcoholicsanonymous #narcoticsanonymous #12steps #healthylifestyle #mentalhealth #soberlife #soberliving #soberaf #alcoholfree #drugfree #wintheday #onedayatatime #stronger #makingamends #reflection #realisation #empty

Since @tellbetterstories2018 shared yesterday's post, I've gotten a tonnnnn of new followers! I shouldn't be surprised, but I cannot believe how many could relate to my story of the shame, sadness, and sickness behind so many of those wine/booze photos. I decided to do a few "fun facts" to get people up to speed on who I am.💁🏿‍♀️ - Name: Jocellyn🌻 - Age: 27🌻 - Single or mingle: happily taken😘 - When & where I got sober: Jan 10th, 2016 in Burlington, VT🌻 - Was it planned?: nope! I just realized one day that maybe, just maybe, by life would get a bit better if I stopped drinking🤷🏿‍♀️ - Recovery programs: 12-step recovery, as well as learning tips and ideas from women (and men) who don't follow that program🌻 - Favorite sober saying: so many, but probably "is the action taking you further away from a drink or closer?"🧐 - Favorite bubbly water: Saratoga Springs, though classic Pelligrino is a close second. My bae also got me a soda stream for my 2nd soberanniversary, and that's pretty lit. La Croix is overrated. Sorry, but it had to be said.🤣 - What I'm good at in recovery: being vulnerable and knowing what self-care tools to use🌻 - Biggest thing I did in sobriety: went to London on my own when I was 9-months sober!🌻 - Things I miss about the old life: absolutely nothing! 👏🏿 - Something I still struggle with: anxiety and depression, but it's gotten a lot better🌻 - Hobbies: reading, writing, and dorky dancing in the kitchen (why is it always the kitchen?)💃🏿 - Okay, tell me a few things about you! 🤗 - #sober #sobriety #sharingischaring #recovery #recoverylife #odaat #12steps #aa #funandsober #mentalhealth #community #awareness #hello
I love the people I have met in recovery. 💙 Some of them are now my closest friends. 👧👨👴🏾 What a gift it is to be able to relax and be truly myself around my people. Yet another blessing of sobriety. 💛💛🧡🧡 * * * Get your Step 11 meditation happening with our AA inspired MP3’s @ Meditations for Alcoholics.com.
Are you even into the big book if you haven’t been to a big book study at Bob and Anne’s house? So many cats!
I know, I know, it’s so self-righteous of us to suggest that the fellowship doesn’t solve all of your problems (spoiler alert: the steps will). 😂😂😂
Nearly four weeks work... I completed #step8 - not my first. But man that took some time. It’s my most honest. Thorough. Fearless. Yes. But. Gut-wrenching. Sickening at times. I thought I already knew what I had to change and learn about myself... the list just grew x10. So powerful. Incredibly emotional. And a great reminder of exactly how I do not want to live. I’ve caused so much chaos. To people I love. So much. And people I don’t know. And myself. I’m actually in shock. I am not asking for sympathy here. In any way. This is my record of my life. And my step work is my private record of me and my life in active addiction. #Step9 - you can wait my friend. I am nowhere near ready. #addiction #recovery #inshock #twelvesteps #12steps I am so #grateful today is not like is was. I know I can never make up for so many things. There’s no chance. I wish I could. I can’t. But I can do better. #justfortoday - I’m truly in shock. And I’m so sorry.

Where do addictions stem from? Some stem from trauma....a lot actually. Some stem from genetics (genes and/or environment) It also stems from a lack of self-love. We forget that all we are is love and light. We tend to get overwhelmed with being human and having human responsibilities. We stop listening to ourselves and our inner guidance system. We start judging ourselves how we aren’t perfect enough, skinny enough, old/young enough, smart enough, pretty enough, successful enough, etc. Then we numb out with substances/outside sources (sugar, caffeine, cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, shopping, sex, procrastination, thrill seeking, etc) Our emotions become frozen and it’s easier to grab for the quickest pick me up which takes us further away from our true selves. How loving is that? How can we give to others if we aren’t filled up ourselves? Self love and self care is not sel-fish. I’m sure you heard this plenty of times. Do you tend to give too much and then feel depleted and start to forget who you really are? Do you feel so exhausted and not sure how you got there and what to do to get back to Self Love again? We will be focusing on this on Friday. Press the re-set button and pour in the Love! 💕🤲🏼💕 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #yogihygienist #yoga #selflove #loveis #bountiful #beautiful #blissful #kundalini #wherethereislove #thereisnoquestion #kundalini #kundaliniyoga #12steps #step2 #cametobelieve #selflovejourney

Don’t bother me I’m attempting to employ my mental faculties!
#TBT - Yoga teacher training graduation circa 2012 - & my teacher Yoganand. . . Back to when I “knew it all” 😂😭🙏🤦‍♀️. . Just kidding. But honestly - I did think that I had a good idea of what I was getting into. . My plan (which I executed) was to start teaching immediately- and teach as many classes as my time allowed (10-15 per week). . Yoga had exponentially changed my life & I was (and still am) very passionate about leading others down this path. . However - I had no idea that taking the seat of the teacher meant that I would have to continue learning - and that learning would include swallowing huge chunks of truth about myself. . Nearly 6 years into teaching and - I am continuing to process and heal my own “stuff”.....and some days it literally feels like I have nothing to offer anyone............vs the girl in the photos who was going to change the world. 😉 . . What I’m learning slowly - is that I don’t have to fake this stuff. All I have to do is share my truth in an energetically responsible way & continue to be honest with myself. . . For me that has meant dropping the number of my classes per week dramatically & setting up clear boundaries for my own yoga practice - and cultivating a separate sitting meditation practice. . And yes - I learned these things the hard way through emotional turmoil and burnout. And I’m still learning. . . My biggest lesson so far is that to hold the responsibility of being a yoga teacher - I must continually do the work of healing myself........and when a student “triggers” me, often I need to take a deeper look at me.
