There is sometimes tension between people who go to AA and people who don't.
Me, i'm not fussy, if you're long-term sober, it doesn't matter what you're doing, so long as it's working. Meetings or no meetings.
But I got this email from Emsyface asking for more clarification: “Can you could talk about the tension between people who attend AA, and other approaches to being sober. There’s always this unspoken tension between a family member and me because I don’t do AA, like I’m in disagreement or something.”
In this full-length podcast audio, I talk about how to have an open mind when considering being sober, how it feels to be sitting on this side of the microphone ... and even if you think this topic has NOTHING to do with you, you'll be glad you listened.
there's something in here for you.
This is a brand new podcast (episode 279) that is going out later this week to podcast subscribers.
I'm posting a link to the entire audio, and I'll leave it up for 48 hrs so that you can listen right now.
