    James Brown Author - a Tragic Addiction Story

    James Brown Author - a Tragic Addiction Story

    James Brown has his own addiction story. It's not dissimilar to stories we've told about children starting on alcohol or marijuana. But James' story has so much tragedy - the loss of his siblings - that it's a wonder that he survived and has been clean and sober for more than a decade. Not only is he clean and sober but he's written three semi-autobiographical books in an effort to hell his story and help others recover from loss and addiction.

“Gateway drug”

They say that marijuana is a big deal and a gateway to harder drugs, need I say any more? Clearly biased and not worth a listen.

"Can I Speak to the Manager" Lady, in podcast form

I try to be open-minded to many perspectives, unfortunately this woman parrots some pretty bad ideas. As someone with my feet planted in two ostensibly conflicting worlds, drug enforcement and harm reduction, I see it all. Authoritarian nobody's like this woman are a dime a dozen, and should be kept on the outside of complex issues like this. Hard pass.

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.
