Today's guest tried to get sober so many times.  Most of the time he was more interested in getting, using and finding ways and means to get drugs, that he did not care about any single person surrounding him. This led to an overdose which almost left him paralyzed.  There was one last ditch effort by someone amazing people in his life, and the question was asked, "What are you going to do?"  He chose to finally get fully surrendered into the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. Today he is a business owner and is very passionate about leadership outside the rooms of AA. If you o ..read more

Today's guest has an incredibly inspiring story. She grappled with substance use disorder and untreated mental health issues for a significant period. We often refer to individuals facing both challenges as "double winners" within our program. You've got to appreciate a touch of dark humor, right? Somehow, she managed to achieve sobriety during the pandemic, partly because she had initial exposure to Alcoholics Anonymous and witnessed its success in the lives of others around her. Coming from an alcoholic family background, she tragically lost her abusive father at a young age when her mother ..read more

My guest today has tried to get sober many times.  His brother was able to get sober earlier than he did which provided some type of attraction rather than promotion.  This allowed him to see what life could be like not using drugs or alcohol.   He eventually got sober after numerous attempts, creating his own most pits (unbeknownst to others around him), receiving lots of physical injuries and everything else that comes with using.   Today his life is surrounding by amazing people who love him and want the best for him.  The word friends does not even do justice the ..read more

My guest today spent years working as a professional in a field where the stigma of addiction or sobriety is looked down upon.  She was able to maintain some time with sheer abstinence but found out over time it takes a little work on her part doing the simple things most people suggest.  After 5 years of what seemed to be a great length and strong sobriety, she found herself divorced and needing to start over a life she knew best.  This sparked the creation of the platform of supporting others in recovery which have time, short and long, or those who are just curious.  M ..read more
