Addiction recovery podcast from Real Sobriety filmmaker and sobriety coach, Robert McClellan. Down to earth, humorous, inspirational and sometimes irreverent - always a good listen to help you in your recovery journey.
June is Pride month and I share how things have not always been smooth for our LGBTQ+ cousins in the recovery fellowships like Alcoholics Anonymous.
Getting Sober for Dummies
I found the first script I ever wrote for a 15 year old podcast! It is amazing how simple the program of recovery can be if we just do some simple things - Don't Drink, Go to Meetings, Pray, Talk to Sponsors, and Repeat. I share that first ever podcast idea with you and hope it applies to your successful recovery!
The Past and Future of the Recovery Community
Robert shares thoughts on the past history and the technology and innovation driven future of the recovery community.
Time For Some Tolerance
From polarized political ideologies to racism, classism, sexism and homophobia, it sometimes seems like the fragile threads that hold a society together are near the breaking point. It is almost enough to make a happy person in recovery relapse. Except - that at the heart of most recovery programs is a philosophy of tolerance, empathy, and service to others. It begins with us. In recovery we learn to get out of our own heads and reach out to help others.
The Detox Experience
The drug and alcohol detox experience is a tough challenge in the short-term, but the long-term benefits of getting clean and sober are worth it. Robert shares his own experience with detox.
Newcomers to Sobriety are Speaking Out
There is a well publicized and somewhat controversial situation involving a newcomer to sobriety who has been speaking out on TV and Radio. We live in a 21st century technological 24/7 connected world, where a newcomer can leverage the Internet and broadcasts to reach audiences of millions - we shouldn’t condemn them - we should encourage and admire their bravery to speak out and inspire others to find a path to recovery.
