As people in recovery we can not afford to allow worldly clamors to distract us from our relationship with God, ourselves and our families. One such clamor is the distraction of this year’s election, debates and the horrible way in which many people who claim to love God end up treating each other because of differences in political persuasion. On today’s show we ask the question: Where is our trust; Is it in God or man? Do we filter our politics and government through our faith in God or do we filter God through our politics and government? We will not tell you how to vote, nor will we disclose who we are voting for but these questions must be addressed.



Have you ever met someone who just didn’t like you and you didn’t know why? Perhaps you can think of people you don’t like and you may or may not be able to put your finger on the reason. Are there people in recovery, church or work that just drive you crazy and you hate running into them? Join Toni, Bruce and the Monty’man as they ask the question, “Is it alright to not like someone, does there have to be a reason and what is the solution? Who is the real enemy? Closing song: “My Jesus” by Todd Agnew


Addiction & Recovery In The News

Join Toni, Bruce and the Monty’man as they discuss several topics of addiction and recovery in the news. From the incredible rise in heroin overdoses, Game of Thrones heroin, drugs on the Darknet of the World Wide Web to the great news of a recovered Olympiad from Austria, a Face Book friend shares some powerful insight and even the bold move of a DCM from Alcoholics Anonymous on the convention floor. Today’s show is filled with recovery talk at its best, including political correct trivia.
Closing song: If I’d Known I’d Live This Long, I’d Taken Better Care of Myself” by Andy Anderson.

Self-Defeating Character Defects. SIX BIG ONES!

“Selfishness – self-centeredness! That, we think, is the root of our troubles. Driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity, we step on the toes of our fellows and they retaliate. Sometimes they hurt us, seemingly without provocation, but we invariably find that at some time in the past we have made decisions based on self which later placed us in a position to be hurt”.  ~Alcoholics Anonymous pg 62



For many, the topic of Jesus Christ being part of the original Alcoholics Anonymous structure brings forth controversary and even hostility.  But the truth bears out that Christ was indeed at the foundation of the building blocks of A.A.’s development and is alive and well regardless of what some would have us believe.
