Survivor Wednesday

Tonight is another episode of Survivor on CBS. I plan to watch it tonight on TV. That is great news for my recovery. I didn’t understand the first three steps when I picked up the Love Hunger Workbook while working at Borland..

I know now that the first Step in any recovery group is saying your name, and what your in recovery for. For example, when I realized that I was a problem gambler, I began to attend GA meetings. I would say something like my name is Brian and I am a problem Gambler. There are Step Studies, and other types of support. The problem with the Love Hunger Program was the fact that I was dealing with more than just Food.

Now the challenge for me is how to step out of denial. Maybe sometime in the next ninety days I will find the answer. All I know now is that I am at Gramercy Court. I have another appointment in two weeks down on Timberlake Way with my Eye Doctor. Today I finished Day four in my Daily Devotional in my CR Bible that I got this past Sunday.

I plan to go to Day 5 on Thursday. I will probably review today’s reading one more time today. I am not planning on getting to my third step until December.

Today is today.

Celebrate Recovery Day 3

I got an online gift for the CR Bible eBook. It was sent by a pastor at Vintage Faith Church down in Santa Cruz. As I think about my recovery, I find it best to read the Daily Devotional and the Road To Recovery.

Those are the eight principles that Pastor Rick Warren put together a few years ago. I know that with the stuff that I have been dealing with that the answer to my questions will be ready to give me a fresh start.

Thanks again to Dan Kimball who is a pastor at VFC.

With my Gambling Recovery under control, it is time to deal with with my Food Addiction. I picked up the Love Hunger Workbook while I was employed as a Customer Service Rep for Borland in Scotts valley from 1990 to 1993.

Celebrate Recovery

I have been through a Celebrate Recovery group, but I didn’t know how to explain my 4th Step. I am reviewing Step 1/Principle 1 from a sample copy of the Celebrate Recovery Study Bible on my iPad. I plan to stay on this step until October 31.

I might be able to get to Step 2 before November, but I have lost all my stuff. I hope to get to my 4th Step during the new year.

i am in recovery for Gambling and Food.

I get to eat dinner in the Dining Room around 5:00PM.

I hope to meet with my Behavioral Psychologist next Wednesday.
