Episode #20 - Normalising the Feelings of Discomfort From Joy & Happiness After Toxicity

Relationships In Recovery

28-09-2023 • 43 mins

Have you ever thought about happiness and joy in sobriety? We often hear that sobriety leads to serenity and happiness, but what about those moments when we question it? I recall my early days in sobriety and the awakening I experienced. It was like finding inner peace, surrendering, and accepting myself.

In this episode I take a closer look at the feelings of happiness, joy and pleasure and explore why it's so hard to navigate these feelings that are supposed to be good!!

I take a non judgemental look at not being ok with pleasure, joy and happiness and talk about:

  • The Hedonic Setpoint
  • Life after toxicity
  • Suggestions on how to re-establish happiness, joy and pleasure
  • Ways to celebrate

It's all a journey from self-loathing to self-love!

Experiencing happiness and joy in sobriety can be challenging, especially if you've spent years in a state of dysregulation. But it's a journey worth taking. Embrace these feelings, normalise discomfort, and remember that you are worthy of a joyful, toxic free life.
