Final Words/thoughts

Jul 11, 2013

In this the 8th hour of the 12 Hour Podcast, Kyle, Chris, Mark continue their discussions.  The topic of having fun in the fellowship was discussed.  Can someone really have fun on a gold course of in a bowling alley and not drink?  Of course you can, but maybe not right away if you're new.

Our Dawn Farm Interview is with Charles Coleman, director of their Transitional Housing Program.  Dawn Farm is a Treatment Facility here in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area.  Charles describes the program along with the benefits and challenges for both the organization and the clients.

Jul 10, 2013

This topic is in reference to an article Bill W. published in 1958


What is Emotional Sobriety?

the development of much more real maturity and balance (which is to say, humility) in our relations with ourselves, with our fellows, and with God.

What types of emotions are most vulnerable to instability in sobriety?

Those adolescent urges that so many of us have for top approval, perfect security, and perfect romance -- urges quite appropriate to age seventeen -- prove to be an impossible way of life when we are at age forty-seven or fifty-seven.

What character asset (virtue) is most needed to achieve emotional sobriety?

Humility

According to Bill, why are peace and joy illusive?

How shall our unconscious  be brought into line with what we actually believe, know and want!

For Bill, what is the problem for him?

dependence on people to supply his needs

What was his solution to the problem

To love others first regardless if it is returned

What is the root of the problem?

unhealthy dependency and its consequent unhealthy demand
