I share my experience, strength and hope with you regarding my own recovery from alcoholism through the 12 Steps in Alcoholics Anonymous. By the grace of God I’ve remained sober since I was 18 years old (1989). I started drinking and using drugs very young. I got sober during a time when there were not a lot of young people in AA. Moreover, I was homeless. I got sober in the very same location I drank. I’m passionate about recovery, and about sharing my incredible experience with others in every way I can. I am sincerely happy, joyous, and free.
The Big Book says we are powerless over one thing – alcohol.
Yet it goes on and on about our ability to impact those around us, in both helpful and in unhelpful ways.
Powerless means having “an inability to influence”.
And the definition of influence: the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effect itself.
In this episode I talk about this and I answer some of your questions.email: firstname.lastname@example.org
