“EMOTIONAL SOBRIETY” The conclusion of CoDA’s Service Concept Seven reads: “... Since issues over authority, will, money, property, and prestige can and do arise in service work, trusted servants need to practice emotional sobriety, including anonymity, humility, tolerance, gratitude, making amends, and forgiveness.” Since being in service work in CoDA, I have discovered the need to practice emotional sobriety (emosbr.)

The CoDA Literature Committee is asking for your contributions to a new piece of literature called Growing Up in CoDA: Becoming Emotionally Mature.

Many of us have, at times, felt like a child impersonating an adult, of feeling “little” in a grown up body, of over-reacting to small affronts, o ...Continue Reading

Sponsorship In CoDA

January 26th 2019

Giving feedback as sponsors, we can develop skills to be honest without advising, lecturing, or being verbally abusive. Sponsorship is a tool of recovery that helps the process of healing. It is not a requiremen ...Continue Reading
