QUIT YELLING, I CAN’T SEE MYSELF (Distractions in Recovery)

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Have you ever been yelled at until you couldn’t see straight? Those of us in recovery understand the yelling that comes from the voices of our active addiction, our self-centered egos and the worldly clamors that attempt to drown out our recovery practices. On this week’s show, we explore those things that can easily become the distractions that can pull us away from our focus on what’s truly important, our recovery program. ​

Take 12 Recovery Radio presents:

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Tom was homeless, a meth addict and on a downward spiral going nowhere fast. Tom was full of shame and trapped in the delusion that there was no way out. He had nowhere to go and had not a clue of what to do until an X-con spoke the truth of recovery through Christ into his life. Shortly after that Nicky Cruz, the former leader of the New York street gang the Mau Maus also spoke into Tom’s life. What was to happen from there would change Tom’s life forever. Recovery was not just a destination for Tom, but it has been a wonderful journey. Tune in and listen to Tom’s story of experience, strength and hope. Now Tom serves others as the Public Relations Coordinator at the Tucson Men’s Induction Center, Teen Challenge of Arizona.
