Information, inspiration, motivation

The interviews, discussions, and personal reflections are extremely intelligent and informative, yet simultaneously relatable, witty, and unpretentious. I love how genuine and kind the hosts are when they speak with guests, and how open and honest they are about all the aspects of this life, big and small, that can lead us both to, and through, our addictions. Charlie’s wealth of knowledge about recovery is truly impressive.

You guys are great! Gift from God. Thank you.

This podcast has reallllly helped propel me forward and back into Recovery. I fell back into the depths & darkness of addiction after getting sober for about a year. I thought I was good, worked a 12 step program, but then slowly I started getting caught up in a whirlwind of other substances.. not my original DOC! Still 2 1/2 years sober from alcohol and with that I had hit ALL the bottoms. These other substances started to take control & before I knew it I was back in the squirrel cage. This time addicted & dependent on two different drugs. Luckily I haven’t lost it all again, but coming back has been MUCH harder this time around. Trusting God to give me the strength to keep doing the next right thing. Anyways.. thanks for all that you guys do. I am benefiting from these podcasts on a daily basis. Know that your helping this young 29 yr old (me) from Chicagoland area! I’ve so much life left to live and I’d like to walk out the rest of it in freedom my alcoholism & addiction.
Much love! ☮️♥️✝️
