Is recovery easier or harder for a frum person?
 

CLICK HERE
for a recording of the unique Shiur/Workshop by Dov from Thursday, Feb 11

This unique Shiur/Workshop by Dov deals with a lot of the confusion that frum people sometimes experience in the program, and also with the issue of why some people's yiddishkeit gets weaker in recovery.

Editor’s Note
 
The "get-yourself-happy" recipes

GET YOURSELF HAPPY BY____;

1. Appreciating all that you have------ make a list-oral or written, and just enjoy all the abundance that is        yours.

2. Overcoming doubts -------perhaps just say the word 'done' over and over again-ridding yourself of doubts    and letting in the corresponding joy.

3. Utilizing happiness as a spiritual battle strategy ---------AND THEREBY FIGHT OFF ALL SOURCES OF ANTI-HAPPINESS.

4. GROOVING ON SOMEONE'S JOY------ENJOY AND SHARE WITH SOMEONE THEIR JOY OR JOYOUS OCCASION.

5. DANCING.

6. APPRECIATING HASHEM'S LOVE FOR YOU ----AND YOUR LOVE FOR HASHEM.

7. APPRECIATING YOUR LOVE FOR OTHERS----- AND THEIR LOVE FOR YOU.

8. APPRECIATING THE FACT THAT YOU ARE JEWISH--------AND ALL THE WONDERFUL AND HOLY JEWISH EXPERIENCES THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU, SUCH AS Torah and mitzvoth.

9. Listening to music------especially the kind that comes from a pure and holy place.

10. Enjoying self improvement---and the Commitment and subsequent changes.

11. Appreciating your own  unique points.

12. Switching focus from helping yourself  to helping others.

13. Having the chutzpa to do the right thing----------despite all the difficulties.

14. Forcing yourself to be happy------even in an external fashion [the externality awakens the internality].

15. Focusing on the fact that everything is for the best.

16. Being silly-------when nothing else works.
