THE IMPORTANCE OF A MENTOR

ABOUT THIS SHOW: A good mentor has the ability to communicate what they have learned in life, they are prepared, approachable, available and have good listening skills. A good mentor practices honesty with diplomacy, they are objective and fair, and they show compassion. Join the Monty’man and Dave Fleming as they unpack the importance of a mentor in the recovery process and in life.

Welcoming the Newcomer

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Is the Newcomer the most important person in a Twelve Step meeting? How should members of our recovery groups approach the Newcomer who perhaps is scared, shaky and bewildered? What about the way we talk about our personal views on outside issues in a meeting? Can this cause a newcomer to feel alienated? Monty shares several stories of listeners as they share their experience as Newcomers and how they were treated when they first walked into the rooms of recovery.

HIGHER POWER SPECIFIC in the TWELVE STEP ROOMS

ABOUT THIS SHOW: A listener writes in to share how she was shut down in her AA meeting for mentioning her Higher Power by name. Monty and the team discuss the issue of being Higher Power Specific in the Twelve Step Rooms. Also, Monty slams the commercials and half-time show broadcast at this year’s Super Bowl. He’s not at all pleased and makes no apologies for his view on the issue.
