What's New in addiction recovery

One of my favourite tools to use for gaining an understanding our challenging thoughts & feelings

The 3 Cs (Catch, Check, Change) offer a powerful strategy for reframing negative thoughts and emotions.

First, Catch yourself in the act of negative thinking. Notice the self-talk and the feelings it evokes.

Then Check the validity of your thoughts. Are they rooted in reality or are they distorted?

Finally, Change your perspective by challenging negativity with more balanced and empowering thoughts.

By acknowledging and validating your feelings throughout this process, you can navigate challenges with greater self-compassion and resilience.

Making a decision #BipolarDisorder #Survivor #Work #Career #Disability #AddictionRecovery

I love my job! I am a Certified Peer Advocate and I get to deal with clients on a daily via phone to follow them on their recovery from substance abuse. However, I keep making small mistakes that have now added up to a possible termination. As much as I love my job I also am more of a face to face type of person. The phone doesn't give me that option. So I remembered that when God wants to remove something from your life he throws roadblocks till I make that decision. I work part time as I am on disability and I have been wanting to get a full time job for awhile now. Maybe these minor mistakes are the road blocks! So with the help of friends I am talking out about this situation. Making a pro and con list, and I am writing it on here for some feedback. This is how my recovery works for me today. I reach out to others. WOW! I have definitely come a long way in my healing journey!

How’s everyone’s Monday? I’m taking a stay-cation this week, I decided before I go back to writing my book. I decided this week to do an ACT course to learn about myself. What’s something you can do (big or small) for your mental health this week? #ADHD #Neurodiversity #Anxiety #Addiction #MentalHealth #AddictionRecovery

As of today I’m 12 months and 1 day relapse free

What’s the best mental health advice you’ve ever gotten that motivates you in your mental health journey? Mine is before you help others you need to help yourself and also we’re more than our challenges and diagnosis. #ADHD #ADHDInGirls #MentalHealth #Depression #Motivation #AddictionRecovery #Neurodiversity

If anyone finds recognizing their progress challenging here’s an article I wrote on that topic.

Defining the way we relate to our mental health challenges, emotions, diagnoses, and obstacles is paramount in fostering resilience and growth.

By cultivating self-awareness, developing healthy coping mechanisms, and seeking support when needed, individuals can transform their relationship with their mental health challenges. Progress, then, becomes a reflection of one’s ability to navigate these challenges with resilience, compassion, and a sense of agency, highlighting the transformative power of the journey itself.
