A couple 20-somethings discuss existing in the current age as sober members of this world. Weekly guests, war stories, and visits from our resident non-sober member of the crew are all to be expected. We discuss our opinions on the current state of 12-step programs in Los Angeles, our personal experiences, and current life endeavors. "Like a speaker-tape, but more fun."

    Sleep, Dreams, and Endeavors

    We have Mike joining us for this episode out of the kindness of his heart. We discuss the importance of sleep in our lives, how we are staying sober with virtually no meetings (not recommended), and Mike's first impressions of working in addiction treatment. We talk about what we envision for our lives over the next couple years and how that differs between us. This is one of the best discussion episodes we've ever done. Enjoy! #oxfordcommagang

    Hi. This week we have our friend Jesse stop by to tell us his story of recovery. Jesse walks us through a tumultuous adolescence which led into a full blown heroin addiction before leaving high school. Jesse talks us through his stints in rehab and ultimately finding sobriety through the 12-step rooms without it. Thanks, as always, for listening, and tell your friends!
