    Y is for You Oughta Know

    Alanis Morisette references abound in this episode about a recent Atlantic article entitled: 'America Has A Drinking Problem'. Lots of hot takes on a piece we suspect was written for normies but makes a lot of good points. Thanks for listening!!!

    X is for eXamine Your Life

    X is for eXamine Your Life

    Today we touch on a various topics including Jerry's penchant for being mildly insufferable and John reads a little something about his ice cream addiction. Sobriety brings perspective and new eyes with which to see the world and hopefully our own place in it. What we see is not always pretty but what we do about it is always important. Thanks for listening!

    W is for Why I'm Still in AA with Jerry Wagner Sr.

    W is for Why I'm Still in AA with Jerry Wagner Sr.

    Today we are joined by Jerry Wagner Sr. who is working on 32 years sobriety this year. This kind of experience brings with it a perspective of grace and patience the world needs. Even though struggles continue far into sobriety we can take care of our program so that it might help take care of us. Thanks for listening!

    V is for A 'Vision for You'

    V is for A 'Vision for You'

    Today we discuss Chapter 11 from the Big Book, 'A Vision For You'. We talk about hope and God and what constitutes a "spiritual experience" and whether or not God is necessary for recovery. As always this podcast is filled with suggestions, opinions and tangents. Thanks for listening!

    U is for Unconditional Love

    U is for Unconditional Love

    Loving someone unconditionally doesn't mean accepting all their behaviors or even having them in your life if those behaviors are a detriment to yours. We also talk about John's love life (ugh) and so much more on this tangent filled episode. Thanks for listening!

    T is for This Too Shall Pass

    Today we talk about the transitory nature of life. How we survive in the liminal spaces of our recovery is just as important as the focused and active parts. There is a rhythm we must dip in and out of as best we can and remember to appreciate the impermanence of this time we have. Thanks for listening!

Like sober old friends

Feels like hanging out with old friends. Sober old friends! One of the many tools in my toolkit that help keep me sober.
