Easy Does It

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW
Topic: Easy Does It

ABOUT THIS SHOW: “One of the most useful of the sayings that have been adopted in A.A. is that which advises,
EASY DOES IT. So universally workable is this good advice that it qualifies as the expression of one of the fundamental steps in a personal rehabilitation.”
~The A.A. Grapevine, July 1948

Join the Monty’man, Toni, Denver and Marv as they share their experience in this area of their own recovery and confirm the truth behind its importance.

Powerless, Yes or No?

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW presents:
Entitled to Overcome (Solutions for Life Today)
with Dave Fleming & the Monty’man

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Powerless?

The question is still being asked today. Are we powerless over our life-controlling issues or do we have the power? The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous states: “Lack of power, that was our dilemma. We had to find a power by which we could live, and it had to be a Power greater than ourselves.”
If this is accurate, where do we find this power and can we actually tap into it or are we simply left to our own devices? What about the issue of choice and free will? Can we simply choose to straighten up and fly right?

Keep It Simple or Keep Them Sick?

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW Topic: Keep It Simple or Keep Them Sick?

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Some would ask, “When did we go from KEEP IT SIMPLE TO KEEP THEM SICK?” Is it possible that in some of our 12 Step support meetings we are guilty of this? Though we may think we are keeping things simple, have we been contributing to creating meeting dependent people rather than God dependent people? Have we strayed away from Dr. Bob’s prescription for recovery, Trust God, Clean House and Help Others or have we been doing a good job of following the directions found in the program of recovery laid at our feet? Things get a little heated on today’s show. Come join the fun as we discuss, Keep It Simple or Keep Them Sick.

Preference or Conviction?

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW presents:
Entitled to Overcome (Solutions for Life Today)
with Dave Fleming & the Monty’man

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Am I a person of preference or conviction?

Preference means that if I find myself in a situation that could be inconvenient or difficult, I would choose or look for a way out, basically saying, “I prefer to do something else, so I will.” This may be safe but it isn’t always right.
Conviction, on the other hand, says, “If I’m in a situation, no matter what the consequences, I must follow God’s direction.”
Taking a stand based on conviction may not always be easy, but its rewards are worth the effort. It is the right choice to make.

The Good Ole Days

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW
Topic: The Good Ole Days

ABOUT THIS SHOW: We ask the question, What do you miss about the good ole days? Are there better days ahead? The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous states, “But we must be careful not to drift into worry, remorse or morbid reflection…”(BB pg 86).
As men and women in recovery, do we wish for the good ole days in this manner? Can we reflect on those days gone by with a smile or even a bit of laughter or are we doomed to let the past beat us down? Some of us are extremely nostalgic, allowing the good memories of the past to haunt us as much as the unpleasant ones. Can we learn from the “Good Ole Days” and move forward with positive anticipation?

Trying To Be All Things To All People?

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW presents:
Entitled to Overcome (Solutions for Life Today)
with Dave Fleming & the Monty’man

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Sometimes our lives get so busy and so filled with the expectations of others that we attempt to meet everyone’s needs. In recovery, we may say yes to every service position that comes available. In doing this we may become somewhat of a Chameleon specializing in adapting to whatever situation we are in and losing our true self in the attempt to be all things to all people. When this happens, burn out is sure to follow and we can run the risk of relapse. Our recovery fellowships just as our families are filled with unique and different folks. It is easy to become a different person when we walk into our Twelve Step meetings and an entirely different man or women once we arrive back home, our workplace or our social network. Are we trying to fit in everywhere at all times and juggle everything to please others or fulfill the unreasonable expectations we have put on ourselves?
