When most people hear the word ?desperation?, they certainly don't think of a gift. In fact, the dictionary defines desperation as, ?a strong feeling of sadness, fear, and loss of hope?. But as with so many other things in recovery, like surrender, vulnerability and powerlessness, desperation has an opposite meaning. Taking that first step in stopping drinking is extremely difficult for most of us. We can't even begin to imagine how to live our lives without alcohol…until we become desperate. When we are in enough pain, when we become desperate...we make a change. We surrender. We ask for help. This is why we call it, ?The Gift of Desperation?. On this episode we will discuss what the gift of desperation felt like for us and how we use that same gift as a tool in maintaining our sobriety.
