Surrender to Win!? ---------------------->

 

Click here for article on Genetic Code and Alcoholism.  This article provides interesting news on relationship between genes and alcoholism.  It may be possible in the future to identify a gene that presupposes a person to alcoholism.  Would you want to know if your kids are carrying the gene?

 

When I first came into the program I kind of hated the slogans like surrender to win.  But ultimately, I learned them to be true in my life.

Dido ------------------------>

 

I begin this podcast with a reflection on the disease concept of alcoholism as Dr. Silkworth set forth in our book Alcoholics Anonymous.  When I first came into AA, I wasn't sure I was alcoholic because of my preconceived idea of what an alcoholic was didn't match with my self perception.  However, the big books description of an alcoholic fit me perfectly so I was able to admit I was alcoholic.

 

Our Alcohol and the Media segment focuses around this article.  Here, the media's presentation of Alateen is very confusing.  The article says that Alateen is for teens struggling with alcohol.  Actually, Alateen is for teens struggling with loved one who struggle with alcohol.  There is a big difference.  According to Alateen's website

Alateen's Purpose

Alateen is part of Al-Anon, which helps families and friends of alcoholics recover from the effects of living with the problem drinking of a relative or friend. Alateen is our recovery program for young people. Alateen groups are sponsored by Al-Anon members.

 

Ed M. completes his Open Talk with part 4.

Open the podcast on reflection on making Amends and the 9th Step. 

 

I know you people hate when I cover stories outside of recovery, but I have interests out side of AA.  In this episode, we play a clip about the Apple iPad

 

I always feel better after a meeting.  Now there is statistical proof that new comers are more depressed than the general public and that long-timers are less depressed than the general public.  Here's the story on AA and Depression that we cover in this episode.

 

Scots Drink alot and we cover the story.
