Dick B. discusses some excellent suggestions for focuses he received recently concerning some very dynamic Christian recovery meetings in California. In today's broadcast, he highlights the growing and diverse needs of the new Christian recovery fellowship meetings.
In recovery meetings it is common practice for one person to share their experience, strength and hope and then to pick a recovery topic for the group to discuss. We thought it would be great to recreate that concept here on The Bubble Hour. Hearing that there are other people just like us...with the same experiences, thoughts and feelings is revolutionary. Tune in to this week's episode to hear our guest Lisa B's story and our discussion.

Getting sober is not easy and many say the first 90 days are critical. This is a time when we are learning a whole new way of life and it can be very difficult and confusing. Celebrating milestones, whether it’s 24 hours, 30, 60, 90 days or years, helps us to see how far we have come and re-commit staying sober. Most recovery programs celebrate milestones by giving out a token (chip, keychain, etc.). This is helpful to the recipient and to others members of the group to see that long-term sobriety is possible.
On this episode of The Bubble Hour, we will talk about how celebrating milestones has helped us with our recovery and some of the special things we have done to celebrate.

Encouragement & Inspriation. Let's Talk About It, Let's Pray About It. Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose Hope is the Lord. (Jeremiah 17:7) HOPE defined is the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best: to give up hope a particular instance of this feeling: the hope of winning grounds for this feeling in a particular instance: There is little or no hope of his recovery a person or thing in which expectations are centered: We hope that our children will be successful. Something that is hoped for: Her forgiveness is my constant hope to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence to believe, desire, or trust: I hope that my work will be satisfactory to feel that something desired may happen: We hope for an early spring to place trust; rely hope against hope, to continue to hope, although the outlook does not warrant it: We are hoping against hope for a change in her condition.

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 7 - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, from NYC, author of the book “Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 7: "Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings." Step Seven is about humility (realistic, selfless, and modest) and asking for help to make the changes you are now prepared for. Consider Step Seven as a portal into openness for change. Once you take Step Seven, you step out of the way so your Higher Power can handle the rest of it. The combination of humility and asking provides a survivor with a perspective beyond the traumatic events. Sadly, you can form an inaccurate perspective based on how you internalized the traumatic event(s). Through prayer (humbly asking), you can trust that your prayers are heard, shall be answered in God's time only. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery is grateful for the spiritual recovery she found in the 12 Steps of AA. She's been active in the 12 Step community for over 17 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 8. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: email@example.com
In the beginning there is the Emergency Room (ER). Away we go – off on a journey – trying our best to re-build our shattered lives in a society that ill equips us to deal with our new selves. The loss. The Pain. The Fear. The lack of self-confidence and self-esteem makes everything harder! Families caught in the middle desperately trying to help and understand our issues and new lives. Friends want to help but don't know how. We try – we fail – some will try again – some succeed – some don’t. To become a victim creates a partnership with dysfunction, and the brotherhood of misery and distain! We must look deep inside ourselves to find the discipline to persevere and not become a victim. The road to recovery begins with the person standing in front of the mirror. It also takes personal responsibility to get better and move on. We must hold ourselves accountable for our actions and well being. It is our obligation to rebuild our lives and not be held back when people don’t understand the consequences of a brain injury. We must find hope – because hope enables us to try again – you can make it – keep trying until you succeed! Learn from this experience and move on. I don’t care if you are a caring professional or a person with a brain injury. We must speak to each other and hear what we are saying and try our best to overcome the burden this tragic turn of events has created in our lives. We must trust what each of us has to say and not dictate our values and prejudices into each other’s lives. Trust flourishes and is nourished when we hear and understand what each of is saying. Respect and dignity is something everyone needs to survive and thrive. Call in tonight and talk about your journey and recovery. Our knowledge is based on experience. Let people hear what you know and how to live!
