WHAT AN HONOR

Rockers In Recovery® – Media


Susan Israel, wife of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel

“My husband and I participated in Rockers in Recovery’s fundraiser for the Special Olympics and we were impressed with how organized and professional the RIR event was. RIR and the Rockers in Recovery band are making a difference because they are leading by example. People believe recovery is possible when they realize they are not struggling alone.  RIR’s message is one that resonates with every community. The great lengths they take help those who cannot help themselves is truly inspirational.”

Rockers In Recovery will be holding a fundraiser for The Special Olympics and The Sheriff’s Foundation

Gratitude Is Not Simply A Word

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

Therapeutic Corner

“Gratitude”

When I facilitate groups on gratitude, I mention that one of the things we should be grateful for is our addiction. Most, if not all, clients look at me and consider me crazy. While I tell them I am crazy (though a good kind of crazy today), I am very serious about what I say and ask them to just listen while I explain. I’ll ask the same of you. Please continue to read before you disregard this message.

Many people that have never become addicted to drugs and/or alcohol have had similar experiences. They’ve experienced trauma, felt that they were not good enough, made bad decisions, done things they regret, hurt people they love, felt like they have not been loved, or have a co-occurring disorder that has not been addressed; they’ve just never chosen substances as their coping device. Maybe they have a different addiction, maybe they have other self-destructive behaviors, or maybe they hide their pain well on the outside but feel empty and alone every single day of their lives. The point is….if we only took the drugs and/or alcohol out of our lives before recovery, we would still not be happy. We would just not be using; we would become one of these people.

Had it not been for our addiction, we would have never had the privilege that most people don’t have… to literally take a break from life and do nothing but focus on ourselves. We had the opportunity to work on ourselves, get the therapy we needed, work through trauma, start feeling better about ourselves and love ourselves. In recovery, we can learn how to become whole and healthy. We can literally choose the kind of person we want to be, and as long as we are willing to do the work, we can become that person. Even after treatment, we have a whole community of people who care about us telling us to “just focus on you”. Other people sometimes get therapy; we get that and so much more.

Regardless of where we were at financially or legally toward the end of your active addiction, we all reached the same emotional bottom. The despair that came was overwhelming and we knew we couldn’t go on. We chose to give life a shot. As we continue in recovery and more to the point because we are in recovery, we acquire the gift of appreciation. Because we know what can be lost, we appreciate things that many people take for granted. The gift of a true friend, laughter, beautiful weather, walking a child to school, family game night, a smile; we appreciate each and every single moment we have because we know how easily those moments can be lost. We can have fun and act crazy and not care what “society” thinks. As long as we are not hurting ourselves, our loved ones, or others, who cares? We are grateful for each and every moment; we cherish them and show it…that is gratitude.

01_RIRARNLet’s take it a step further. Many people really put everything they have into recovery. They find that life is truly amazing. They’ve changed their lives in such a drastic way and became someone they never thought possible. They become so grateful that they want to share this experience with as many people as possible. At this point these people have become not just grateful for their addiction, but because of their addiction and the passion and hard work they put into recovery, they are now grateful for the gift of this new life and want help give others the same opportunity …this is true GRATITUDE.

Here are just a few examples of true gratitude at work: The late James Dube, who helped so many people in so many ways I could write a book. Richie Supa, who reaches so many people with his gift of words whether speaking or singing; for being proud of who he is today and not ashamed to tell anyone where he’s been. RIR All-Star Band, who have chosen to show their gratitude by dedicating their time to showing people that life and music can be so much more in recovery. John Hollis, who spends most of his time on the phone and computer spreading the message to anyone who will listen and trying to get the support needed to make things work. Lori Sullivan, who spends her time often in the background doing things that go unnoticed publicly and without her dedication, RIR wouldn’t have worked. Sunrise Detox, who puts the needs of clients before dollar signs (a very rare quality even in recovery). Ira Levy, who advocates for anyone in need along with his teammate, listed next, and whos gratitude for life is so great it has been passed on to his daughter Sassy. Lynda Micheletti, who leads by example and shows her gratitude for life in everything she does, both in her personal and professional life.

If you’re in active addiction or early recovery, you probably won’t understand this kind of gratitude yet. That’s O.K. You have something amazing to look forward to. If you have been in recovery for a little while, many of you will understand this and are living this now. If you aren’t, I urge you to consider changing your view on what gratitude means on a larger scale and start “paying it forward” as you should be doing with the gift you have been given. Gratitude is not simply a word. If you are truly grateful, your gratitude shapes who you are and will show in your actions.

I Know You’re Ready, But Are You Willing?

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

To make any positive change in your life, you have to be ready and willing to make that change. When a person decides to seek help for their addiction, they are told that if they have these two things, they can leave active addiction behind move toward recovery.

Ready is simple enough and if they’ve made the first step, such as detox, they’ve got that one nailed. Willing is another story. Willingness is a word thrown around in the recovery community with the assumption that people truly understand its meaning. Willingness as it applies to change and recovery is the choice to surrender, to open your mind and let go of the idea that you somehow know how to do this on your own…..not just for a moment, not just for a few weeks or a few months…you have to keep that willingness with you always. You can’t and don’t have to do this on your own. The wonderful thing about recovery is that there are so many amazing people ready and willing to help you if you will just let them.

Here’s the irony: Recovery and change would be easy for simple minded people. Think about it. If I were a simple minded young lady deciding to change my life and someone was helping me, I would do anything they suggested without question; my path to a happier, drug/alcohol free life very easy. The problem is we are not simple minded!!! We are very, very intelligent…all of us, regardless of socioeconomic status or educational level. We are so smart, we out-think ourselves. When a counselor/sponsor/mentor gives us a suggestion, we must first analyze it to see if it applies to us, question why it applies, and then find the loophole (or make one if we need to).

In the beginning stages of recovery, some people surrender and have the willingness for a little while. They feel great for the first 30 days, 90 days, or even a year or two. They take all the suggestions, at least on the surface. At some point along the road they stop being willing and start thinking that they have learned all they need to know, believing that they no longer need support and guidance. They are “cured”. They can now do what they want which usually entails some sort of unhealthy behavior. Sooner or later, relapse occurs.

Now we have come back to the role of willingness. In order to get and remain clean and sober you must have the willingness to listen to all the things you don’t want to hear, talk about all the things you don’t want to talk about, and do all the things you don’t want to do. Even when it hurts emotionally, you don’t want to, you don’t understand the reasoning, or you don’t think it applies to you…do it anyway. Many times we won’t understand the “why” of something until we are much further down the road. Something that sounds perfectly logical to us at this moment, we will often later (maybe a year or two down the road) realize how much destruction it would’ve caused for us if we had actually acted on it. Don’t ever get cocky and think that you can stop talking to others and getting their feedback. Our ability to twist and distort reality is what gets us into trouble.

I’m a very curious person and thus have had many conversations with personal friends, talked with clients, and have spoken with colleagues regarding the phenomena of the “one hit wonder”. This term is applied to those individuals who go through treatment once and as of yet have not relapsed. My question was of course “What makes those individuals different than others who’d relapsed many times and now have quite a few years (5-25) clean”? There were so many similarities and only one difference I discovered. WILLINGNESS. Everyone I spoke to, whether they had only been to treatment once or 33 times told me that they finally got it when they surrendered their will and became willing to listen to people who cared, people who wanted to show them how to get and stay healthy; how to live and enjoy life without drugs and/or alcohol.

Willingness is the greatest gift you can give yourself; you now have the willingness to allow others to help you become the person you are meant to be; to find out who you are without drugs/alcohol. If you’ve been free from drugs/alcohol for a while then keep that same willingness and apply it equally to maintaining your recovery from substances and working on another aspect of yourself or your life you’d like to change.

Though not always to the same degree, we must recognize and be willing to see that our thoughts and ideas can always get in our own way. Life is not meant to be a solo journey.

When Will Enough Be Enough

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

Post by Lori Sullivan, Co-Founder Rockers In Recovery – Many of us in the recovery world are trying to change the stigma regarding people with addiction to the “normal” people in the world who don’t understand, yet we still have the stigma in our own RECOVERY COMMUNITIES!!

Here I am after just celebrating 16 years of recovery and I can say I am amazed…but not in a good way. What I have seen in the last several years within the recovery communities makes me sick. People who have taken away from what the founding members of AA created by putting in their own ideals and just plain watering down what is considered by many a “God inspired” thing.

Just yesterday I saw where a newcomer posted on FB how they didn’t understand how a meeting room could deny a person a AA Big Book because she was a relapser and how she needed to pay for it. There were of course the people trying to be funny. One person who responded with “maybe she collects them to sell”…. Really folks? This is a woman that keeps trying to get recovery by coming back time after time only to be told “sorry you’re a relapser so you’ll have to pay for your book”. Really? This is a woman screaming for help…not just asking. Why do I say this? Because it takes REAL courage to come back to some of the rooms of today because of the people in it. It took real courage for this woman to ask for a book. No wonder people who are struggling with addiction either give up and continue to use till they die or they just commit suicide.

STOP THE STIGMA OF ADDICTION I was a chronic relapser at one point and I don’t forget that “There only by the grace of God could go I”. I had experienced peoples comments like “oh your back…what cha add another minute to your story?” Luckily I just kept trying REGARDLESS OF WHAT SOME PEOPLE SAID and with God’s help and the help of some really good people in the program. Here I am today a Co-founder of an organization that was created to help people and to show them (especially the young people) that recovery is possible regardless of where you come from, and it can be fun, not the doom and gloom that I thought it was when I attended my first AA meeting at the ripe age of 20 years. My first drink was at twelve and my first of many alcohol related blackouts was at age 15. That was 1978 and I remember that meeting clear as a bell today. It was a room filled with all older people passing a microphone around (I was very shy without my liquid courage) so I wanted nothing to do with that. I sat till the end meeting as many shared their experience, strength, and hope. After the meeting some people gave me a Big Book and told me to come back. Very kind people. But I wasn’t ready I was only there to appease my parents so they wouldn’t throw me out of their house. So on I went trying controlled drinking and using on and off for years at times achieving at times 22 months or 2 ½ years before relapsing. Many times when I relapsed I felt like a rubber band that snapped. Never seeing it coming. I didn’t plan it…but it still kept happening. I experienced the jails and institutions. This went on till September 14, 1999. They say some a sicker than others and I was one of them. I was homeless many times over a four year period at one point in my life, and stayed out there because I found that at least I wasn’t being judged by those around me.

Maybe this is why I’m for the underdogs.The people who relapse over and over but still keep trying. That in its self takes real courage. See I was taught that at anytime, anywhere if a hand reaches out…I AM RESPONSIBLE. I always say “where there is breath there is hope”. What can I do to help them not give up? Trust me I’ve been hurt in this belief many times and in many ways. I’ve even fallen short myself because of my hurt and anger. But God always has brought me back to what I believe. The belief is no matter what don’t give up on a fellow human being and I will continue to stand on this belief because I know deep down there is good in most human beings. I have had to learn to separate the addiction (the dark side) and all the sick behaviors that go with it, for the human being filled with the goodness that GOD created. GOD doesn’t make junk.

RIR-All-Star-Band1  Yes, some are sicker than others, and trust me it is both outside and INSIDE the rooms of recovery TODAY. I have seen the sickest of the sick who state they are in “long term recovery” yet judge people who were in recovery and because they relapsed (usually from mental, physical, or spiritual issues or all the above) and the insanity that comes with it. They stand in judgement of that person’s character while they were using, or while in a dry drunk. Or worse yet, the person has found his or hers recovery again (by the Grace of God) and these people continue to kill them with their tongues and their better than thou attitudes, agendas and egos. Even more concerning is some of them are now treatment centers owners and government employees in long term recovery payed to help others with addiction, SCARY. I guess they have forgotten where they came from or they never experienced a really low bottom or maybe their recovery isn’t as solid as one would think. I would think that with long term recovery there would also be some maturity, not the behaviors of grade school or high school students…talking about a person to their clones’ to persuade others to not like this person or that person and if they do then they can’t associate with them OR it would be a conflict of interest! What?? A conflict of whose interest? If that’s what the long term recovery has made them (sickos filled with agendas, ego’s and afraid of the relapser) then it’s no wonder people stay away from the rooms of recovery after they relapse. Especially the ones that had obtained long term recovery and then relapsed. He or she are the ones that just end up killing themselves sometimes quickly sometimes slowly over the sick attitudes and behaviors of some of the people IN RECOVERY!! It’s so sad. I guess that’s why there are those special sponsors that take on the challenge of a chronic relapser.

Then you have the people who put a time frame on a person’s recovery with things like I’m a person in “Long Term Recovery” or “sorry but you can’t share because you don’t have enough time” must be a six months or year before you can share.  No sorry you can’t join this recovery committee you don’t have enough time. Where did that come from? Who am I to put a time limit on when someone can carry a message of hope and what might be THEIR purpose to stay?

RIR Music FestWhere would we be today if the founders of AA (Bill Wilson and Bob Smith) and the founding members had the attitudes of today? I can tell you…there wouldn’t have been anything. Period. Just what they already had, jails, institutions, and inevitably DEATH. If someone wanted help, they got them through the steps as quickly as possible many in a day! Then out the door to help another. They never gave up on the sick and suffering inside and outside the rooms and that included the families. I have never heard of them excluding someone who relapsed. Back then they would pay that person a call to see how they were doing (in person) and see if they could help. They didn’t wait for the person to call them when they were ready. But if the person wasn’t ready they prayed for them, and then wasted no time working with another, because they didn’t want to spoil a future opportunity if it presented itself at later date. Hey they at least planted the seed of HOPE even if it’s a mustard seed.

All I can say is if you don’t have something nice to say then say nothing at all. Something most of us learned as children…words hurt and words can Kill. People who do this in recovery only show me that they might not have had a drink or drug in quite some time, but they truly aren’t practicing the spiritual principles that was freely given to them.

In closing I want to say that I thank all the good people I have met during my recovery journey. You have been instrumental in my personal recovery as well as helping me carry the message of hope (without judgement) in my business. You are all winners in my book because you believe as I do that we all have to work together for the common goal to help others afflicted with the disease of addiction regardless of who they are and where they’ve been. For all the others I leave them to God and pray that they don’t kill someone.

God Bless us all as we trudge this happy road of recovery!
