    S4; E2: Alcoholism, AA & The Big Book explained with "Mrs. Jones."

    Trigger warning: Sexual assault is briefly mentioned early in the interview. Please be advised. 
    My friend, who was one of the recovered alcoholics who guided me through the 12 Steps & who we will call, "Mrs. Jones," shares about her experiences drinking, getting sober and today, a recovered alcoholic. She explains some misconceptions and some confusions about Alcoholism, AA and The Big Book through her own experience.  Her Cat , ‘Netty’ will often chime in during the interview. 😆
    Some examples of what you will hear:
    ~Triggers - "dangerously underestimates what it means to have an alcoholic mind... " ~"Mrs. Jones." 
    ~What it means to be recovered (vs. recovering)
    ~If reason and logic keep her away from the first drink.

Sober Gratitudes is inspiring, enlightening and even poignant, whether you’re a newcomer or an old-timer, a single person, married or a mom…it’s the next best thing to an AA meeting….Sarah is so sincere about helping others and every episode attests to that!!! She’s the epitome of service. Listen and learn while you don’t drink no matter what!!! Sarah, thanks for carrying the message with so many heartfelt and relevant episodes!!!
