This is an audio clip from Sober Podcast #228 sent to sober podcast members.
This audio is a personalized response to someone who asked me “but what about these circumstances, my life is hard, these things and these things.”
And no matter what day you’re on today, there’s a message in here for you.
I received this from J: after she heard my personalized reply:
“It’s really interesting to me that you said (and of course this is true) that I would have ended up overdrinking whether I married my widower or not … I see that you are of course right – I’d be an overdrinker with an overdrinker’s brain whether I had this particular job or these particular kids as my responsibility or not. So. That’s the truth. Wolfie will tell my very receptive brain that drinking anaesthetic would be a good idea. NO MATTER WHAT”
Question: How tempting is it to think that our situation is different? (this is a trick question; wolfie is an anus).
below i’ve posted a 3 minute clip from the longer audio, all i ask is that you leave a message in the comments. If you’d like to listen to the whole thing, you can use the link to download at the bottom of the post.
