Thanks Susan for making this forum whole and balance. In the sense that there is for emotional, mental, and spirtuality aspect.
Thanks for noticing. Early in recovery, as I was analyzing all my addictions in light of what I was reading and learning in AA, I decided that our problem was a combination of things, and our emotions, our minds, our bodies and our souls needed to be healed. Until I got to AA, I had tried everything except healing the soul. That was the missing element which is why I place spirituality in such high regard.
It is interesting that you should mention this at this time. I am reading Thomas Moore's, "Care of the Soul." I always thought he was a theologian, but he is a psychiatrist who like Jung and others has learned the dangers of leaving the soul unattended. You are so kind C. As always, it is an embarrassment of riches to have you and the board in my life.
It lifts up my soul. It is my home. It brings up such tender feelings. My head is reeling. God . . . May I stay a little longer.

Your recovery is worth the pain of your withdrawal. Remember that "the pain you feel today will be the strength you feel tomorrow." Fantasy-based relationship is a lie. Face your reality and stay well!Kind Regards to all LAA members here, - Codepnomore
I just wanted to share some of my favorite sites for spiritual information: 1-youtube: search Supersoul Sunday and watch some of the guests Oprah has on there. Michael Singer is great, Brene Brown is good and So is Alanis Morissette. They all speak of ways to improve our lives. 2-books like The Untethered Soul, The Alchemist, The Book of Awesome and so many I can not list them all. 3-watching Dr drew Pinsky on YouTube-some of his interviews on addictionHe is an addiction specialist that understands addiction and is an advocate for addicts to get clean. He is also a fan of the 12 step program. 4-SLAA or CODA or AA-realky any 12 step you feel would help you on your road to recovery 5-regular meditation, exercise and time out in nature. These have been so essential in my healing. 6-this forum
