Recovery Coaching

Standard

Straight from the mouth of Wikipedia – “Recovery coaching is a form of strengths-based support for persons with addictions or in recovery from alcohol, other drugs, codependency, or other addictive behaviors. Recovery coaches work with persons with active addictions as well as persons already in recovery.”

Coaching is not therapy and it is not sponsoring.  Clinical issues (past traumas) and 12 Step work are not addressed.  The idea behind coaching is partnership and collaboration.  It’s all about you (the client) and your agenda.  It’s about topics you’re facing in the present and it’s about goals you’d like to set, and then set out to tackle.

Coaching is an adventure, and all it requires on your part is a willingness to move from the thinking stage to the action stage.99

People might share the same path, but no two people can occupy the same space.

I welcome your questions.

Endeavour’s Last Trip

I can only imagine what it must feel like to sit in the front seat of that thing with the rockets roaring – knowing I’m on my way to the freakin space station – in space.   Envy isn’t cool but damn!                                                                                                                                            

Mt. Etna From Space – Smokin’! – She Was Starting To Get On My Nerves

“So you drink about four bottles a day.” She said, looking at her notebook. She was an enthusiastic note-taker.

“That‘s correct.” I answered.

“Of?” She asked.

“Of what?”

“That’s what I’m asking. You drink four bottles of what every day? Beer? Wine coolers?”

“Wine. Chardonnay.” HELLO? Had she not listened at all when I explained my drinking history to her earlier?

“Like the little four-pack bottles? Like the little bottles you can buy on an airplane?”

I eyeballed her for a moment – studied her. Was she shitting me? I supposed people went to treatment for drinking four of those little airplane sized bottles of wine a day. She was starting to get on my nerves.

 I have no clue what body of water that is.  Anyone?  I’m guessing it’s part of the North Atlantic.  It’s sunrise.

I’m following this astronaut on twitter – Ron Garan, and he’s taking these pics from the International Space Station.  I just think they’re beyond amazing
