The Recovered Podcast Community is not a glum lot.  They contribute to the show and what they share is exactly what someone else needs to hear.  The new guy needs to hear your story.  So honor your 12th step obligation by calling in and help the guy who has not yet gone to his first meeting, you may make the difference in his life.  There are two ways to add to the show:

  1. Speakpipe Use your mobile or computer and leave a message.  This is the preferred method because the sound quality is excellent.
  2. 1-734-288-7510 is our voice message line.

Anyone who’s in long-term recovery knows that it’s not all good times.
Sure, there’s the great feeling you get from knowing
that you’ve started your journey on the road to recovery.
But that’s just it – it’s an ongoing journey, not a destination.

This means that there are bound to be many
twists and turns along the way, and some of these can prove
frustrating, difficult, or downright confounding.

How do you know what to do?
Tonight, we talk about how we make difficult decisions and
How we choose from the good, the bad, and
the in-between in recovery.
