Inspiring Personal Stories

Thanks to Joanie and Jason for this podcast. The format is straightforward: personal stories of hope and redemption. I learn something from each episode (I am entering my 12th year of recovery). I’ve found the show features people from many walks of life, given rein to discuss what have been their greatest sources of strength and inspiration. The more stories I hear, the more ideas I get for transforming my own life. Whether a person is an advocate of Narconon, the 12 steps, or another form of recovery, I’m sure there is something I can learn from his/her story…if I listen. The Addiction Podcast gives me that opportunity.

Do you remember the DARE program?

Addiction is a serious issue in this country. When I was growing up we had the DARE program that taught kids how to handle situations dealing with alcohol and drugs.

In addition to the DARE program there we also had after school specials and Saturday morning tv shows That dealt with drugs and alcohol and what you should do if you or your friends had a problem.

So even if parents didn’t quite know how to initiate the conversation with their children these things gave them an “in”.

This podcast reminds me of the things that I grew up with.

Hearing the stories first hand really puts things in perspective.

This podcast isn’t like the ones you’re use to. The ones that are full of fluff, condescending and stuffy.

Although drug addiction is a serious matter the show is (for lack of a better term) interesting and engaging. These are real people sharing their real life experiences.

I plan on sharing this podcast with the group of young adults that I mentor.

Thank you for your time and effort.
