Recovery is a processProcess

Just like any other process in our lives it takes time. This is not a quick fix for all our problems, it’s a day by day process where we simply try to be better today than we were the day before if we happen to be so blessed to see it.
Raymond Kyle

Founder Warrior Foundation.

Alot of times in this process, individuals tend to want to rush, like there is some kind of race with a prize for who gets there first. Well, sorry to bust your bubble but whether you get there first or you get there last,we are all winners. We a get the same prize, LIFE!
There is no need to rush, enjoy this beautiful journey. Take it all in, don’t skip the hard part’s. The struggles in this process is where we are created, this is where we are learning to tap into who we truly are. Just slow down and relax.

You don’t have to move mountains every day. You don’t have to hurry up and get to a certain point. Take your time, and enjoy this journey. When we rush is where we are more likely to make mistakes. If we allow down and pay attention then we are better able to get out of this process and out of life what we not only need but what we deserve as well.

Recovery is a process Click to Tweet

I challenge you today, as I do myself to slow down. Take this magical journey into the deepest darkest parts of your soul and allow it to do the work it needs to do. Enjoy being you, enjoying the progress even if it’s minimal, enjoy it. This process works if you work it and will allow it to work in your life. Remember you cannot rush greatness, and you my friends are great. God bless you and have an amazing day.

IS AA/NA THE ONLY WAY TO RECOVER?aa-chip

There seems to be an ongoing debate as to whether or not and individual can truly recover from addiction without following the 12 steps and the AA/NA program?

Let me begin by saying this, AA/NA has worked for millions of people for many many years, and it will continue to do so for years to come. The guidelines and principals taught in these programs can be very helpful in recovery, so I do believe the foundation of AA/NA is amazing.

Raymond Kyle

Founder Warrior Foundation.

But, yes there is a but, I very firmly believe in what works for one person may not necessarily work for the next. We as individuals are all made differently in so many ways. So it’s safe to say one program is not gonna work for everybody.

In today’s society it is becoming more and more often you hear of these amazing stories of recovery from individuals who work their own program their own way and are doing an amazing job.
There is no right or wrong way to recover. Long as you are moving forward,and are getting better in life then keep doing what you are doing.

IS AA/NA THE ONLY WAY TO RECOVER? Click to Tweet

Don’t ever let anybody tell you that you are doing it wrong cause there is no right or wrong way. Recovery is simply about living life on life’s terms and we each lead a different life.I will end with this! This should not even be a debate. We should all encourage and lift up each other no matter what program works for us. We are in this together and we will win, cause we do recover.

god-knowAs You Understand Him

Raymond Kyle

Founder Warrior Foundation.

Many people have many different reasons as to how and why they began a process of healing and recovery. You ask 100 different people you may get the same answers but in 100 different ways. Any of us that are in this process knows the only way it’s possible is with God.

I know some don’t believe in God and it still works for them. Well you right, they may not believe in God as I myself and you may understand him, but you have to believe in something bigger than yourself, your higher power of your own understanding. Whatever works for you then do it.

As You Understand Him Click to Tweet

I know In my process until I allowed God to direct me and lead me I was still lost. Yes I was better and yes I was making progress but I had stalled cause I too thought I could do it all by myself. I couldn’t and it’s by the grace of God that I am here today and still working my process.

If you haven’t done so already it’s time to find what God’s purpose is for your life. Not our own but God’s. When we find this and begin to work it then that’s when the true blessings come. God is the only way we make it thru a lot of our days. When we think there is no way he creates one. Let God lead you in your process you can’t go wrong.

A Journey Through My Mind

journey-through-my-mind

Raymond Kyle

Founder Warrior Foundation.

Allow me to take you on a journey thru my mind, a place many have wanted to go, some have had the chance, and very few could actually handle. Let me take you to a place that’s unknown to your eyes, but once you open them and I mean open them from your soul, then I can show you a world that you would soon learn to love, if only you was to give it a chance.

.
A Journey Through My Mind Click to Tweet

See my mind runs a hundred miles an hour, always thinking of ways to be different and unique, showing my intellect and intelligence, and inspiration to those who may need me. That is what makes me who I am and that is why I am so proud of who I am. My story is a story that is told by he that lives within my soul, he that was once so lonely and lost by his own mistakes and choices.

Llanwrst, Conwy, Wales

But now he has opened his eyes to his soul to see the beauty that lies within and has come to understand the greatness he was blessed with from his birth. He has let his flowers blossom instead of pulling his mind and body and soul with things of the world that for so long controlled who he was. Over time he has become a better man, a man that he can be proud of, the man he was so intended to be. Every day still working on his life and on his self to be better and to do better with his life.

in-the-end-we-only-regret-the-chances-we-didnt-take1

So do you understand what I am saying? We all take chances in life, we all make mistakes. Sometimes before we know it we are blinded by our own self, trying to understand life and our reason for living.

Nobody controls our destiny in this world but ourselves. Life is what we make it by the choice we each choose to make. Every choice has consequences and repercussions no matter good or bad. We all must answer for the choices we choose to make and be held accountable. None of us is perfect, and we never will be, but we must all strive to be better and learn from our mistakes. Sometimes you may end up paying for choices we made for the rest of our live, but that does not mean that we cannot keep bettering ourselves or helping others better themselves for true LOVE has no limits.

We all can make a list of reasons we could give up, but many of us choose not to. Why? Cause we all have more reasons not too. Life is sometimes hard, this I do know all too well. I also know that it will probably get worse before It gets better, but I know that each one of us is capable of fighting thru all ND making it thru.

sorry

Today you stop feeling sorry for yourself, you stand up, you shake it off and you decide that you are going to be the man and woman, the king and queen that you know you are. Don’t give up and waste your life. Love yourself, love yourself enough to help yourself and to make the right choices in life. Ladies you are a queen and a queen you shall always be. Men, you are kings and kings you shall always be. Claim it, live it, love it.

Just remember when life throws you a loop and it seems like nobody loves you or cares God does and I do. God loves us every day, all day, every second or every day. He never takes a day off. God bless you as you continue your journey.

A Simple Way to Survive the Loneliness of the Holiday Season

By: T.E. Pepper

Here’s the thing. A lot of us have burned through friendships and family, and no one wants to see us anymore. Some don’t know where we are, or if we’re even still alive.

When we drink and cause misery in the lives of others, sometimes it takes a long time to reestablish, repair, and resume those relationships. Sometimes we never can. And that makes this a lonely time of year for many of us.

A Simple Way to Survive the Loneliness of the Holiday Season

Being alone for the holidays is isolating and often depressing. But sobriety offers the opportunity to make new friends. I’m talking about people who are safe to be with during the holidays because they’re sober.

Most big cities sponsor recovery clubhouses and charities with round-the-clock AA meetings during the holidays. It’s a great idea to get out and attend a meeting if you’re feeling lonely.

Talk to people. Call another recovering alcoholic. Get out of your house or apartment and go to coffee shops. Be around people.

Sign up for a yoga class or go to a reading at a bookstore or library. Go to a holiday church service or a non-religious meeting like the Ethical Society.

A Simple Way to Survive the Loneliness of the Holiday Season Click to Tweet

A Simple Way to Survive the Loneliness of the Holiday Season

Offer to help people less fortunate than you. Volunteer at a homeless shelter. Get into the spirit of the season by focusing outward on others.

Find something you care about and dedicate yourself to that for a few days. Maybe it will become a lifelong hobby. Wouldn’t that be great?

The holidays can be a difficult time, and newly sober people are often seduced into relapse by the mental and emotional pressures bombarding them this time of year. We know we will find “friends” in a bar. But we also know those aren’t real friends. We won’t be happier or less lonely just because we drink.

Being sober means we find new, healthy ways to have relationships with people. The key is not to succumb to depression and isolation. We can’t allow the disease to regain a foothold in our lives again and drive us back to drinking and that kind of misery.

A_people holding hands

Yes, the holiday season can be terribly lonely. But not if you change your focus. See it as an opportunity. Take the next step in your recovery and make more sober friends, help others, investigate a new hobby.

There’s a wonderful sober world out there. Check it out. It’s worth the effort.

Beware of “Blackout Wednesday”

By: Allie Holbrook
Thanksgiving.  A day for gratitude, but also a time of excess.  Tables groan with turkey and pumpkin pie, wine flows freely, and there’s a sense that nothing bad can happen on a night of such goodwill.
In fact, Thanksgiving is bad news for people trying to stay sober. Not to mention the people who are unfortunate enough to share the roads with drunks.

This Wednesday evening heralds the beginning of the long weekend, a night the bar industry and law enforcement call “Blackout Wednesday.” Alcohol consumption will begin to spike tonight and with it the inevitable consequences.

Year after year, road fatalities are higher on Thanksgiving than at any other time of year, and that includes New Year’s Day. Revelers heading home in the wee hours after a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne are less likely to be driving under the influence than people who have taken advantage of a Thanksgiving cornucopia of booze.  In 2002, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported almost half of the motorist fatalities over the Thanksgiving weekend involved a drunk driver.

College students heading home for the last break before finals contribute to the toll.  But they’re not the only ones.  Alcohol Monitoring reported last Thanksgiving that drinking violations among people monitored for alcohol consumption go up by half over the Thanksgiving weekend.  These are people who have already sustained alcohol-related convictions and are under court orders. Yet they consistently drink and drive on Thanksgiving, knowing they’re being monitored.

Beware of "Blackout Wednesday"

Drunk driving isn’t the only spike over Thanksgiving. Alcohol-related injuries and assaults also rise.  ER staffs around the country brace for the usual flood of patients injured in drunken family brawls, as well as those suffering heart attacks from over-indulgence.  Nothing says “I’m grateful for my blessings” like having your stomach pumped, right?

Beware of "Blackout Wednesday"

If you’re struggling to moderate your alcohol intake, Thanksgiving is a dangerous time to drink.  Why not show your gratitude for friends and family by staying sober? Then they won’t have to pour you into a cab at the end of the night.

For those of you in recovery, congratulations.  Give thanks for your sobriety at the Thanksgiving table by celebrating with a big slice of pumpkin pie. You deserve it!

Like a Champion

Are you a champion doing what you do best? Or would you say there is room for improvement in your life
Mike Downing

Mike Downing Contributing Author

It is likely that you are one of the millions of people from around the world that have been watching the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Regardless of winning or losing the game everyone appreciates the level of dedication required to reach the top in their game. This intense training and performance of the body doesn’t display the confidential work an athlete must undergo to train the brain for maximum performance.

Champions-League-Final

As we watch the physical ability of the athlete- can you imagine what is going on inside of the athletes brain and the mental conditioning to reach those levels? Nobody earns that level of success without hard work, dedication, tremendous sacrifice and a coachable attitude. Athletes are excellent examples and model the coachable attitude that comes directly from discipline in the brain.

Are-You-A-Coachable-Basketball-Player-1024x650

Let’s look at what a coachable attitude really means and keep in mind the coachable attitude relies 100% on the athlete’s responsibility to think clearly. The athlete must be willing to accept feedback from a coach in a safe environment without turning negative or shutting down. Athletes understand the coach is working exclusively for and supporting the athlete’s goals. The coach earns respect by skillfully demonstrating the ability to hold the athletes focus to reach maximum potential in the moment of training or competing.

The skilled coaching conversation between the athlete and coach will open the mind to awaken and discover the missing pieces required to move forward like a champion. Unfortunately, we are not able to coach ourselves objectively or as effectively without a coach to frame an objective view of personal performance.

10590309_xl-e1418052564241

When we reach the top of our career or win the game we need to learn how to manage that level of success in a productive manner. It’s healthier to have a receptive mind at all times to cross check and allow our thinking to be challenged. There is nothing wrong with demonstrating self-control and no reason to be embarrassed or feel insecure at any time during the process of achieving higher goals while working with a coach.

77eb2a1ca333aa6836a25f0626484c37

Professional coaches create a safe and productive learning environment to draw out the best of each client. How would your life improve if you hired a personal coach to unlock strengths inside of you? That’s right, if you believe you are coachable and ready to move forward in your career or struggling with an addiction – why are you not reaching out for help? Studies indicate that people are responsible for placing personal and professional limits on themselves. Skilled coaches help you increase your limits with confidence and sustainability by connecting your strengths, core values, beliefs, needs and wants to confirm balance in your life.

Naturally, a coach will look for a strong commitment with a coachable attitude to create a dynamic relationship between the athlete and coach. During the private conversation the coach will deliberately stretch the client further to reach higher levels faster. This process requires a client to mentally and physically push through challenges every time the client feels like giving up, throwing in the towel or quitting.
Let’s be candid and get serious about taking responsibility for our personal growth and development. Today there are several books based on the brain and how the brain functions. The brain is empty and pure when we are born and continually develops and learns until we take our last breath. Unless, a medically diagnosed condition is found that prohibits the ability to learn or retain information.

conexiones-cerebro

We understand the brain activate when we use our five senses. (eyes-ears-nose-mouth-touch) Meaning everything we see, hear, smell, taste, and feel will record new data instantly and permanently in our brain. When this information is received into the brain it will become our responsibility to further challenge the new information quickly using our learned filters to process whether this information is good or bad for us. This is key because the filtering process is learned and will help us navigate decisions based on the facts. We learn the difference between right from wrong, good from bad, yes from no and all of these filters start applying when we are very young and learning from our parents, friends, family, school, television, games, etc…

Unfortunately, most people choose what they believe is bad for them because someone else told them it was bad and not to do it. Wow, that’s right! Notice when someone tells us not to do something we might do it without them knowing. When a person uses his or her free will to choose there is not much we can do for them when deliberately acting out and choosing things that have the potential to cause harm. Respectfully, how does that work for all teachers out there? It’s never worked for me. The first opportunity a curious person gets to find out what bad really means will immediately uncover the other side. Yes, the temporary good feeling of pleasure, rewards sensations being released inside of our bodies chemical factory.

Solutions:

Did you know, there is very strong evidence supporting the brains natural organic ability to learn, process and retain new information on how to set higher goals based on your strengths and core values? Yes, with the right program repeated several times the brain will eventually respond and accept the client’s decision for change. Training the brain will condition a new normal with confidence and sustainability to moving forward to break free from an addiction, manage time more effectively, improve relationships, health, fitness and life balance.

My guess would be that if you are reading this article you are ready for help or you know someone who is looking for help. My job, our job is to get real about who you are and why are you here reading this article. I don’t believe things happen by accident as much as divine moments in time. Tell me what’s happing right now in your life that’s not working and when do you want to get back on track?

My job, our job is to create a custom plan built exclusively for you and your situation that defines what your focus will include and what you want to achieve moving forward.
How would you answer the next set of questions: Are you struggling with an addiction or need help adjusting to something new? Do you want help? If so, when do you want to start? And who will trust to uncover those obstacles that are holding you back from moving forward?

Hopefully, this article will encourage you to reach out for help and find a program that matches your situation. Retaining a personal commitment, addiction recovery coach like Mike Downing will help you reach your goals faster with clarity. Help has arrived! www.PureCommitment.com

Why wait?whywait

Mike Downing

Mike Downing Contributing Author

Have you ever thought about why a person struggling with an addiction would wait and not ask for help when they can reach out and get help now? When was the last time you added up the cost of your addiction? How long can you afford your addiction?
Below are three examples of real client stories and how waiting only added to their cost. The names have been removed for privacy. Notice how similar the stories unfold even though they have different choice addictions.
T-gambling-enHD-AR12016-06-18_11-35-27Client #1

Struggles with a gambling addiction that started several years ago. At this point there has been hundreds of thousands of dollars gambled away with a few wins to keep the addict believing the next win will be the jackpot. Unfortunately, Client #1 wasn’t ready until the spouse gave an ultimatum to either get help or stop gambling or the marriage would end in divorce. That is almost like having a gun put to a person’s head. So, think about this: What if your spouse told you to stop or else? Would you ask for help or get a divorce? Tell me more about your choice?
The added stress from a spouse can be helpful to motivate a person to ask for help, but most likely asking for help won’t be enough to just quit without a carefully designed plan. If a huge financial loss of money wasn’t enough to stop gambling – add the cost of getting divorced! Client #1 is looking for help to save the marriage but really doesn’t want to stop gambling. How long can Client #1 keep gambling in secret?  How much money would you choose to lose before you would get help to stop gambling and save your marriage?

marijuana-joint-620x420Client #2

Struggles with drugs and alcohol addiction that has everyone in the family worried about client’s health and safety. Sadly the spouse moved out, hired an attorney and filed for divorce. Client #2 tried everything- even quit drinking cold turkey for ten weeks while trying to save the 20 year marriage. Unfortunately, his wife decided it was too late and she didn’t want any more of his false promises. She also said that she would rather live alone than be married to a drunk. Shortly after his wife moved out things only began to get worse. Why? Because Client #2 had nobody around to monitor his daily consumption that led to not being able to get out of the house for several days. This condition escalated to the point of exhaustion combined with a feeling of being paralyzed and depressed. He just stop caring about life while grieving over his loss. How many relationships and how much money are you willing to spend for your addiction?

95129-91622Client #3

Struggles with over eating. About seven years ago client #3 notice his life changing after getting married. His lovely wife supported and loved him unconditionally as he grew larger weekly by 2-3 pounds until he slowly gained 100+ pounds of additional body weight over a seven year period. He wanted help to lose weight but felt it was impossible. Also, how would he medicate his stress if not eating those favorite foods in large quantities? It was obvious he wanted to commit to a plan that would help manage his food in a healthy manner. His wife prepared his meal at home as normal but Client #3 used food to medicate stress. He would pick up fast food on the way home to secretly eat in the car before going home to eat with his wife. As soon as he started chewing he felt immediate relief.

The food would reduce stress by activating the brain to trigger and release natural chemicals so that he would feel pleasure right away while preparing to eat again at home and repeat the pleasure. His wife never knew about his secret eating habit and the weight never really bothered her. She tried to cook him healthier meals but he continued to gain weight. When we met he shared that he was concerned that his weight was over 300 lbs. and he needed help. How much is his secret costing him? How much is your secret addiction costing you?

Picture1

Most clients agree their addiction slowly turns into an automatic response without thought to feed the cravings and activate the pleasure circuitry and feel good in the moment. (temporarily) This becomes the daily routine without questioning WHY do I keep doing the same thing every day without asking for help? Having this same daily unchanged pattern results in an out of balance lifestyle.

Have you set a stop using date yet? Hopefully you are looking forward to beginning detox, rehab and recovery soon. Think about how good you would feel if you respond sooner rather than later…Why Wait? We are talking about saving you time, money and a lot of suffering all at the same time. Respond only if you are interested in reducing the cost or saving your marriage, saving your job, lowering your chance for an accident or injury etc…

When fighting any addiction we must agree and understand the meaning of the word and how the addiction is overpowering when left alone or keeping the addiction hidden from family and friends only compounds the situation. We know how controlling the daily fight can be especially for those not ready for help. For example: An addict that is honest and seeking help will openly explain how everyday it is a challenge to make better choices.

Powerless

The mind and body of an addict is exhausted and powerless against the need or craving to feel completely satisfied. Unfortunately, the brain of an addict releases chemicals that cause temporary satisfaction and the addict will need help to overcome the initial stages from detox to recovery. We also know from reading and studying addictions most addictions will escalate or increase as the body builds tolerance setting the bar higher to reach a new normal.

Here’s a question to think about: What is your normal? You have the right to answer this question any way you want. This article in not meant to judge, shame or condemn anyone into doing something.
I look forward to hearing from those seriously ready to get started with a pure and committed heart for authentic lifestyle full of endless opportunities and possibilities.

The Movie – Starring You!

Have you ever thought about making a movie starring you and sharing your personal story to help others overcome addiction? What would your movie look like and how would your story display on the big screen? Would it be a box office smash or a flop?

Would people be encouraged by how you pushed through obstacles and life challenges and survived to tell your story? Do you know why your story is so important to understand? I believe there is power, strength, and personal growth in your story that will give you and others the confidence needed to stay healthy and celebrate better lifestyle changes. Yes, when an individual is ready and wants to stop making excuses – the normal next step is to find help and learn how to deal with life as life unfolds naturally. Think about the building blocks of how your story will stack up.

Then as you prepare the outline use three basic steps. Notice there will always be a beginning, middle and end to every story.

Start by rewinding the tape in your head until you can find a spot called the beginning – the event or feeling just before your addiction started.

For example: find the pain point – divorce, rejection, the first drink, the first inhalation, viewing internet porn, the first needle, shopping, gambling or eating to comfort that moment.

In order to begin your story. Do you see yourself on the big screen at this point? Were you happy? Were you scared? How an actor would be portraying your experience. It is important not to get too hung up or stuck in all of the details in order to make a point of reference. This approach will help structure and move you through the details to keep you focused on where you want to end up. You will gain strength by skimming through the details (like a movie) and discovering you came through even when you believed there was no way and completely impossible. We want to spend time reviewing the good stuff – the positive aspects and what is working in your life and why did you stop appreciating those things? Or how did you lose focus on what was really important? Tell me more about your strengths?

Get to the middle of your story – the maintenance part. The part where you still thought you had control of your addiction. The middle of denial. Then move on to the finish. Has your story finished yet? What would you want people to remember most about how you choose to live your life? Yes, the key word to remember is choose. We all have to make choices that will be part of our movie and those choices will spill out and affect those in your life. You can change your appearance, your habits, your friends, your job…but you can’t change unless you want to change and that change will require structure, new discipline and many hours of practice for results.

When you are ready get something to write out your thoughts – preferably pen and paper work the best. I recommend hand writing over using electronic devices to get the most from this exercise. As your eyes and mind begin to open let the pen in hand feel your words flow freely into your notes for later review. Write your script and take your time and keep asking yourself does my mess turn into my message? Or was my story a test that turned into my testimonial? How does my story help people that are headed to where I have been? How can the ending of my story prepare someone for a strong finish? Allow the questions to guide your direction. Be honest because the truth will set you free!

How does your net worth impact your addiction?

Truthfully your addiction doesn’t care about you or your financial status! Matter of fact your addiction will eventually consume all of your assets and still want more leaving you unsatisfied again. Losing everything to an addiction is not the best solution to choose when you are in a position to retain professional help. Remember your net worth has nothing to do with your addiction controlling your life and holding you back from living a clean and sober lifestyle. Addiction lies to you and consumes you over time. Take a real look at yourself or someone you know struggling with an addiction. Do you or do they look better or worse today than when the addiction started?

However, your financial status will allow you to seek out the very best recovery service available. What would the ultimate VIP at home recovery service look like to you? What if you could privately complete a treatment program from home combined with a well trained professional addiction recovery coach to monitor your daily activity? Would this 24/7 exclusive companion service interest you? Clients truly experience the very best VIP service when retaining Mike Downing and his company to stand in the gap while learning how to live sober again.

Studies indicate the brain can be reprogrammed. This learning process takes time and must be repeated several times over days and months. This is similar to working your body muscles at the gym except the brain responds to mind exercise of thought training and choosing different option to replace the void. Learning how to exercise the brain is a lot like leaning how to exercise the body. Having a personal coach will help you stay focused and get your mind and body conditioned to where you want to go moving forward. Change is difficult and virtually impossible alone without competent help.

stop-sign-1444144-639x427 (1)How much more will you have to lose? When do you STOP your addiction? If not now, when?

Do you have a reason to STOP without a hidden agenda? Tell me more about your reason and why you are ready to make a Pure Commitment to live sober and I will help you bridge the gap to freedom. Help Has Arrived!

VIP-Clients are found online through articles like this or through word of mouth. Do you or someone you know suffer from an addiction and are ready for help? These articles have a way of finding help when help is needed. If you are looking for total privacy – you found your solution. I understand the importance of having a safe environment and respect all Clients that retain my service. Meaning you will never know the names of those I have helped transition from the darkest side of an addiction into clean and sober lifestyle unless my client shares with you personally.

Privacy-Policy---Confidentiality-Agreement-17063103web

VIP-Clients must complete and sign a total privacy agreement to prevent misinterpretation. Fortunately, to protect all VIP-clients we sign a legal and binding contract called the Pure Commitment agreement clearly outlining the coach / client relationship.
