Garbage In, Garbage Out

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Garbage In, Garbage Out is about staying clean and or Sober but little else. Are we in recovery to stop using our substance of choice or is there more to recovery than abstinence? We should not be surprised if the only thing that has changed is our drinking or using. Why be shocked when we relapse when sobriety does not pair with a program of recovery. Our life tree will bear fruit, but will it be rotten fruit or good fruit?

Resistance to Change

On this episode of Entitled to Overcome (Solutions for Life Today). Join Dave Fleming, Denver Wolfe and the Monty’man as they discuss the resistance most of us have experienced to change. “Many of us cling to our fears, doubts, self-loathing, or hatred because there is a certain distorted security in familiar pain. It seems safer to embrace what we know than to let go of it for the unknown.” NA Basic Text, p. 34

The Broad Highway, Staying in Your Own Lane

ABOUT THIS SHOW: The Broad Highway (Staying in Your Own Lane). Because our recovery fellowships are host to many kinds of people from different backgrounds, beliefs, and social climates, we may experience people working the program in different ways. Is it ever appropriate to correct or suggest to others that they may be following short of working an actual program of recovery? When is it the right time to merge into someone else’s lane on the broad highway of recovery or do we simply mind our own business?

Pain Management in Recovery

ABOUT THIS SHOW: The use of pain medication or any medication can be a source for much controversy within the recovery community. Does taking pain medication disqualify you from counting your clean/sober time? Are we indeed clean and sober when taking pain medication and if so, are their qualifiers? Some would have us believe that we have lost our sobriety if we need to undergo pain management. Join the Take 12 Recovery Radio team as we discuss this controversial issue.
