SPIRITUAL PROGRESS NOT SPIRITUAL PERFECTION, What Does That Really Mean?

How often has this phrase been used as an excuse not to continue to grow and mature in our recovery and how often is it quoted out of context as “progress not perfection”. Join Dave Fleming and the Monty’man as they discuss this topic and perhaps disagree a bit. Hey, it’s healthy to have a difference of opinion.

CHEM-FREE Sobriety

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Special Guest Suzanne Laura Thistle MA, MLADC, and author of CHEM-FREE SOBRIETY, (101 Trailblazers share wisdom and insight about their natural recovery from substance use disorder). Monty asks “What is the difference between the recovery of yesterday versus the recovery of today?”. On this show, we discuss that though there is a place for Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) the truth is many addicts and alcoholics can recover without medication but are led to believe they cannot.

Why “Take What You Need & Leave The Rest” is Bad Advice

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Monty and his co-hosts may not have the same opinion on this topic. Join us as we unpack the issue of platitudes and sayings that the Monty’man believes may do more harm than good.
Monty says, “When I came into the rooms of recovery I had no idea what I needed so someone telling me to “take what I need and leave the rest” allowed me to customize my program and not apply THE program.It was a detriment to my recovery. CLOSING SONG: Sweet Friend of Mine by Bryan Duncan.

When You Feel Like Giving Up

ABOUT THIS SHOW: When You Feel Like Giving Up, Get Up and Get Out. We all have times in our lives and in our recovery when we feel like quitting, like giving up and just digging a hole and crawling into it. Today’s show addresses this issue and encourages us to all practice the solution to this horrible final choice that many have made just before the miracle. If you have ever felt like life was just way more than you could handle, tune into this show for some powerful encouragement. CLOSING SONG: Get a Bigger Pan by Karen Taylor-Good.

You Can’t Fix What You Don’t Acknowledge

ABOUT THIS SHOW: This show addresses the importance of admitting our powerlessness over our addictions before we can experience a solution and recover. We must be convinced of our malady before we truly are able to surrender it to a power greater than ourselves. If we don’t acknowledge the issues in our lives as out of our control, why would we seek a power to control them? Monty also addresses Christians who wonder what their standing in Christ is after they relapse time and time again.
