Sometimes we can look at addiction from the perspective of feeding something that is in us, a need, a desire, a craving… Learning to feed ourselves in a way that is nourishing and healthy can be a difficult task in sobriety.
Feeding the Soul is a good place to begin…
There are two types of food for the soul that help many people in recovery and other communities.
First, understanding for our warped mind. Reading recovery literature and learning recovery tools can be a way of feeding the mind in an area that we have been starving.
Second, incorporating a practice of prayer and meditation. In this sense a way of asking and receiving that in which we have been neglecting can help us to find meaning and purpose in our lives. Both of these methods can soothe many of the uncomfortable challenges ahead in our recovery journey.
Live for today, feed the soul, sobriety is possible!
