Response to No Vested Interest (Reply #5)

6. They have online meetings now and a chat room where you can go and do an example

I went into the chat a few days ago. It is amazing how well you feel just doing one example with some other, (in this case it was just one) recovery members spotting with you.

I used to go to regular meetings in my 20's and now I am 55 and I still remember several spottings. I think I say, "there is no danger" to myself more than anything when I have symptoms. I probably should say it the way it is written, "It is distressing but not dangerous"

I also take open up a word document sometimes and just start writing out all the spottings I can remember. I'm glad we are talking about this because it puts it back in my head. I think Recovery Inc. is one of the best self help programs ever to have existed.

Oh, and I can spot sabotage of myself for not taking my medication the way I was told to take it! And then endorse myself for spotting the sabotage.

For you
