I share my experience, strength and hope with you regarding my own recovery from alcoholism through the 12 Steps in Alcoholics Anonymous. By the grace of God I've remained sober since I was 18 years old (1989). I started drinking and using drugs very young. I got sober during a time when there were not a lot of young people in AA. Moreover, I was homeless. I got sober in the very same location I drank. I'm passionate about recovery, and about sharing my incredible experience with others in every way I can. I am sincerely happy, joyous, and free.

    Episode #3 - "The Obsession Returns"

    Episode #3 - "The Obsession Returns"

    At one year of sobriety, the obsession to drink returned, and remained for the next year and a half. Some people in A.A. told me to go drink again, that I was not "done drinking" and/or I had not really done the First Step.

    By the grace of God, I did not drink again, and was eventually led to a man who carried the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to me in a way that changed my life.

    Episode #4 - "My Guest is Dave - Part 1"

    Episode #4 - "My Guest is Dave - Part 1"

    Today, my guest is a close friend of mine in Alcoholics Anonymous named Dave.
    He talks about prayer, the "Big Book", A.A. meetings, the Third Step, and that time he was tazed by police officers right in front of his horrified neighbors. 

    After trying to get sober for twenty years, Dave received the same message I received, and it completely changed his life.

    Episode #5 - "The Problem & The Plot"

    Episode #5 - "The Problem & The Plot"

    In this episode I discuss my understanding of what alcoholism is, and is not, according to the first 164 pages of the "Big Book"; a clear understanding of the "problem" made the application of the "solution" much, much easier.

    Episode #6 - "A.A. Meetings"

    Episode #6 - "A.A. Meetings"

    In this episode I discuss how my relationship with AA meetings has evolved. I talk about practicing listening, getting out of self, the 12 Traditions, giving verses taking, the loving and tolerant nature of Alcoholics Anonymous, how easy it is to play God in a meeting, and finally, about how whatever I'm looking for, I will find it in a meeting.

The good stuff

This is a go to podcast for me and has been like a sponsor and a meeting in my pocket.

I don’t even want to know who I’d be without it.

Thank-you ❤️

This podcast changed my recovery for the better.

I started listening a few months ago, and it has changed EVERYTHING. The way I see A.A., the way I live my program, my relationship with my higher power, the way I am of service to others.. everything is just, increasingly more wonderful.

This podcast perfectly articulates what the program of A.A. ACTUALLY can do, & it makes it easy to understand.. Unfortunately he’s not that funny; TOTALLY KIDDING! He’s hilarious! OH and his books!! COMEDY GOLD! I buy a few copies of his books a month because I’m always giving them away to people I know in my community.. Watching my friends in the fellowship laugh, & appreciate every word in the Sarcastic big book is a bright spot in my day.. But, ABOVE EVERYTHING, hearing this mans experience is truly something I think anyone, whether you are currently struggling with addiction, in a 12 step program, or not, can benefit from. The more I listen, the more I find myself wanting to take action. I see the change in my way of life, and witness it in everyone else’s experience with me as well. I am forever grateful, & I look forward to every new podcast weekly.
