We hear often that acceptance is key in both getting sober and staying sober.
But what does this really mean? What does acceptance mean to you?
We know that in order to get sober, we must accept that we are powerless over drugs and/or alcohol. But even during sobriety, accepting things we do not have control over - which turns out is all people, places and things - is critical to maintaining recovery.
In this show we'll talk all about Acceptance: why it is important, how it can be elusive, what gets in the way of acceptance, what is means to us, tools we use to find acceptance, how we know when we're not accepting something and what we do to get it back.
We will also share stories of times lack of acceptance has made us struggle or suffer, and share our experiences with times acceptance has helped us not just stay sober but maintain a healthy recovery.
