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 #222 - "Action Quiets the Brain"
It is action that quiets the brain.
In this episode I talk about how faith is not enough.
In fact, the Big Book says that on its own, faith is dead.
Unselfish, constructive action is necessary.
Episode #221 - "The Phrase, 'Life On Life's Terms'"
In this episode I talk about my thoughts concerning the phrase, "Life on Life's Terms."
- Why do "life's terms" sound so bad
My Instagram page.
Episode #220 - "Hitting a Wall in Sobriety"
In this episode I talk about how my sobriety has been an endless series of taller and taller walls to walk through.
Everything is a growth opportunity.
AA is an all terrain vehicle.
Episode #219 - "If I'm Looking for God, I've Found God"
When I was in early sobriety someone said, "God says, don't be afraid. If you know to look for Me, you've already found Me."
Here, I talk about this.
Episode #218 - "A Step Three Check-In"
In this episode I talk about some simple ways I can tell I need to remind myself I'm no longer running the show.
- Which side of the counter am I on?
- God is our employer
- Everyone a potential customer
Episode #217 - "Saying, 'I Shouldn't Feel This Way'"
I used to say to myself, "I shouldn't feel this way" because I intellectually knew I shouldn't.
But the fact is that telling myself that never helped me, and I found it to be not only counterproductive but actually destructive.
The recovery radio podcast has officially rocketed my recovery into the 4th dimension. This man has such a beautiful way of transmitting aa and big book. 🙌🏽🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
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.
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.
