Do We Really Need a Sponsor?

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW
Topic: Do We Really Need a Sponsor

The question has been asked: If you have a Big Book and you can read, why would you need a sponsor?

“Any A.A. who has not experienced the joys and satisfaction of helping another alcoholic regain his place in life has not yet fully realized the complete benefits of this fellowship.” (A.A. Sponsorship Pamphlet.)
Question: What does the A.A. Big Book reference 123 times in the first 88 pages?
Answer: Alcoholics working with other alcoholics. This specifically means two alcoholics working together, putting the A.A. Program into action.
Some members call this sponsorship, being a spiritual advisor, a mentor, a trusted friend. Whatever you choose to call one alcoholic or one addict helping another walk through the Twelve Step process, one thing is for sure, we need each other, and it is irresponsible of us to think any newcomer can walk through this process alone. Tune into this show as we discuss the question, “Are Sponsors really needed?”

The Thorns of Recovery

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW

(The Thorns of Recovery, Jordon & Brandy’s Story)

Joyful, happy, enthusiastic, motivated, responsible and energetic. These are some of the words that describe our guest this week on this episode of the Take 12 Recovery Radio Show. But this was not always the case. Long before Jordon and Brandy Thorn were married, they both lived in a world that spun out of control through their active addiction. Narcotics including heroin, a social environment that was less than healthy and a drive to move toward the dark side of life was all that consumed them. But God had plans for their lives which included the faith-based recovery program of Teen Challenge in the Pacific Northwest. Join the Monty’man for this encouraging interview that is once again evidence of God’s great redemptive power through recovery and a restored life through hard work and faith in Christ ​

Why Do You Stay Sober?

ENTITLED TO OVERCOME
(Solutions for Life, Today) A Take 12 Recovery Radio Broadcast

Topic: Why do you stay sober?

After reading over 200 responses to this question, it became clear that there are as many answers to this question as there are people in recovery, but one thing most of them had in common was that people stay sober today because they don’t want to go back to the life they lived while in their active addiction. But, is there more to it than simply wanting to avoid the consequences of our actions while drunk or high? Tune into and find out as we discuss the topic on this episode of Entitled to Overcome.

Called to Ministry, Called to Crack, and Back

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW
THE VICTORY REPORT #8
(Called to Ministry, Called to Crack, and Back)

At twelve years of age our guest, Craig J. felt the call of God on his life to go into formal ministry, but through some unhealthy choices and the influence of the enemy of his soul, the call on his life was disrupted and later Craig would live out a 12-year addiction to crack cocaine. But God was determined to get Craig’s attention and after a series of events, twists and turns, our guest was directed into Teen Challenge by the prompting of the Holy Spirit and serves today as the Dean of Men for the Tucson men’s Center, part of the Teen Challenge of Arizona’s recovery ministry.
