Addiction & Grief

By

Emotional Recovery From Addiction

Authentic recovery is more than an attitude. It is based on emotional work that involves an honest appraisal of one's life. It is through dealing with unresolved feelings of grief and anger that one can truly heal from addiction.

The emotional “bottom” of recovery. Just as one needs to hit bottom with drinking or using in order to begin recovery, eventually one will also hit an emotional “bottom” of fear, anger, and grief. And recovery can only start by first understanding how, when, and where those emotions took control. Author Barb Rogers challenges readers in recovery to investigate the unresolved grief and loss in their lives and helps readers navigate the impacts of those emotions—emotions that can lead back to using if not resolved.

Finding healing and happiness. Recovery from addictions involves more than getting sober. It involves finding happiness, which can only happen if the emotional work is done as well. Negative emotions have the ability to weigh on us and influence both our decisions and the way we handle life’s challenges. If we continue to live with fear, anger, and grief, we aren’t really free from our addictions. The steps to recovery—authentic and complete recovery—involve healing from the deeper issues in our life. Learn more about:

  • The emotional healing that goes hand-in-hand with addiction recovery
  • Dealing with grief and resolving underlying issues
  • How to find happiness after getting sober

If you learned from books like This Naked MindRewiredThe Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction, or A Gentle Path Through the Twelve Steps, then you’ll want to read Addiction & Grief.

If I Die Before I Wake

By

Barb Rogers' book begins with the tragic death of her teenage son, Jon, and delves into the horror that was her life to that point. Due to a home life fraught with substance and emotional abuse, Barb found herself bottomed out more than once, and homeless along the way.

"When asked in early recovery if I knew any prayers, the one I could think of was the child's nighttime prayer, 'Now I lay me down to sleep.' As I thought of it, I recalled the long nights when I simply wanted to go to sleep and never wake up."

Barb learned most of her life lessons through pain, tragedy, and addiction. This is not a glamorous book, it is real and it is raw. It is not about survival of the fittest, but the weak, the hopeless, the helpless, the truly addicted, not only to substances, but to drama, anger, excuses, and justifications.

She describes how she got to her lowest point, just what it was, and how and why she finally reached out to a 12step program for help. She shows the reader what it's really like to survive, to stay clean and sober, and find a way to the other side. Recovery was one of the most difficult things she ever did, but "worth every effort I put out."

Barb Rogers would be the first to tell you she's not specialshe's led a hard life, and she tells her story well and with humorreadersaddicts or not, but especially addictsare going to find the kind of gritty inspiration, that if Barb can do it so can they, that will inspire life changes.
