  • posted Central PA is experiencing cold temps with snow off and on. Not feeling like getting out of bed. Just freezing cold and blah. How does the weather affect your mood and recovery?
    • AndreaR Cold weather makes me sleepy and depressed, which causes me to have some triggers but when I have triggers there’s always a coping mechanism around to get rid of it.
  • posted How has everyone been doing?

  • posted I recently read an article about resolutions and how it is better to set goals. It discussed how resolutions can be a set up for failure. Instead, set realistic goals and work towards them! What goals have you set for 2019?

  • posted What did you learn during your recovery in 2018? Any valuable lessons to share with the group?
    • AndreaR I learned that it isn’t all about willpower. If we have a team surrounding us that will be there in a time of need (whether it be midnight or 4 am) that we can get through anything.

      Having a recovery coach is extremely important and crucial to recovery, as well as having a role model that you can look up to. Both have helped me tremendously this year.

  • posted Don’t forget that life is precious. It can end in an instant. Cherish each moment and make sure you tell your loved ones that you love them. Recovery is important, but family is important too.

  • posted Hello everyone! What's new? Anyone have any tips on surviving a stressful week without using?
    • AndreaR When I have stressful weeks, I try to take some time to myself and remind myself why I quit in the first place.

      Not to advertise or anything, but I go to YouTube and play the videos that are posted by Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle, that have a hashtag of #MyComeback

      I usually play the “Focus” video, and it will make me remember why I quit in the first place.

      My suggestion to you is to try those videos and find something or someone who motivates you to keep going.

      Happy Holidays.
