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.
New Book Released: Sober Bob's Bathroom Book
Just published my newest book: "Sober Bob's Bathroom Book" - Advice to help you stay sober. And I traveled to the U.S. for the first time in two years! I almost didn't make it back across the Canadian border because of the Covid-19 protocols!
Is Marking Sobriety Time a Good Thing?
Is celebrating our sobriety anniversaries a good practice? Or should we stick to the One Day At A Time formula? Robert shares some personal news and talks about the dog days of a sober summer.
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.
Old episodes do not seem to download

Racism in Recovery
Not okay for you to use the N* word when telling a story. Even if they weren’t your words, you don’t repeat it.
