Healthy Living: Boundaries in Conversation | Tuesday, December 13, 2022 7:00 PM-8:30 PM

We all have been in situations where we have to decide what to say and who to talk to.  In this meeting we will talk about personal boundaries in conversation.   When are you telling “too much?”   What things you should share about yourself and in what situations should you share?  Please join us for a lively conversation and bring examples to share of times when maybe you said a little too much.  As always, if this is your first time coming you will receive a gift card ( useful with the Holidays approaching). If you have attended in the past and recruit a new person to attend you will also get a gift card!  Hope to see you there! ~Elizabeth Reeve

How much is too much?  This month, Elizabeth Reeve will continue talking with us about addictions.  We will discuss three common chemical addictions: alcohol, Marijuana, and nicotine. We will also talk about how to keep yourself safe in social situations where drugs or alcohol may be available. This is an important topic for all of us especially as the holidays approach and you may be attending more social events.  Please join us and remember that all new attendees will get a gift card for their first attendance. If you have previously attended and bring someone new with you BOTH of you will get a gift card!  See you soon!

**Note date change to Monday for this month**

Welcome back  to Healthy Living.  I hope all of you had a wonderful HEALTHY summer.  We are going to start our meetings this fall with a two part series about addiction.  This month we will focus on describing and understanding addictions and what they are and next month we will talk more about specific issues related to drug and alcohol use.  We will tackle questions like “How do I know if I am addicted to something?”  “How can I get help if I need it for an addictive behavior?”  “How much alcohol is too much?” “Can an addiction ever be a good thing?”  and “How do I talk to a friend who I think has a problem with an addiction?”  
I would love to meet some new Bridging Hearts members this year during our Health Living sessions.  Please consider joining us, there is lots of support and lively discussion.  See you there next week!  (please note that the first session is on a MONDAY instead of our usual TUESDAY time) ~Elizabeth Reeve
