Is your recovery thriving?
Starting out in recovery but not sure where to begin?
Have you been trying and failing to succeed in your recovery far longer than you’d like to admit?
When I (Josh) was in my addiction I was struggling…again and again I would try to stop certain behaviors that went against my values. Again and again I would fail.
I felt shame, guilt, and remorse. I swore I would never go back to those dark places. And yet I would find myself there. The cycle continued. My behavior and my shame got worse.
Eventually I swore this insanity had to stop and I gathered up the courage and told friends about my struggles.
Over a few years I met regularly with trusted friends and tried to be honest about my secrets and my struggles.
It helped to be in an accountability community.
But it wasn’t enough.
It wasn’t until I combined the power of community with applying the right knowledge that I could change.
I began to grow and heal when I finally understood my addiction, the brain chemistry, what created my addiction, my triggers, different recovery tools and skills, and how to get the support and take necessary action.
It’s no different for you.
You can use rTribe, you can stay connected to your friends, but if you don’t have a good program where you are learning, growing, and applying what you learn to your life in a structured process…you will likely stay stuck.
Recovery is about connection and applying truth to your life.
That’s why I’m so excited to announce that we have partnered with a non-profit and implemented their videos into a recovery series of courses in rTribe called Freedom Fight.
This is an engaging video series with thoughtful questions that will help you learn and grow. It is solution-focused video that is both scientifically and faith-based (since many of our users value spirituality and their faith in recovery, and others are open to this approach if it helps them in their recovery).
This video course series will help you take necessary steps forward to thrive in your recovery.
If you haven’t deeply committed to following the steps of a successful program you probably won’t see the progress you’d like to see.
I’ve talked with many people who think they are unique.
- I don’t have to go to a 12 Step group.
- I don’t really need to read the book.
- I will read the book but not complete the questions.
- I will complete the questions but I’m going to skim them and not really think about it.
- I’m going to thoughtfully complete the questions but not share them.
- I understand all about addiction, I don’t need to keep showing up.
- I’ve got some sobriety, I can stop the program early.
Do any of these sound familiar? I’ve thought some variation of all of these.
What excuses do you make that prevents you from progressing in your recovery?
If your recovery isn’t thriving, and you haven’t followed a program, it is time.
- It is time to say no to that little voice in your head that is afraid.
- It is time to say no to that little voice in your head that is too prideful to ask for help.
- It is time to say no to the excuses and the denial that keeps you stuck.
- It is time to say yes to the life you deserve.
- It is time to say yes to taking a course or investing in a program that has helped many others before you.
Taking the Freedom Fight course could help you discover powerful new skills and insights. Begin today.
If you like the first free videos, we suggest you go through the course with your friends so you can progress together and encourage one another. Our personal and professional experience of being in groups and leading others through groups tells us this is the best way to experience a thriving recovery.
Whether that is taking our course or some other program or both, don’t hesitate to invest in yourself.
So that you may be free and thrive,
Josh, Alex, and the rTribe Team
