A 1 hour show exploring how and why AA "think" gets in ones head, how to undo it and how long will that take? Each person will be different. There is no one size fits all. Join host Monica Richardson to tear up the once adored fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous as we explore tools for getting free from 1935 dangerous self doubt promblamatic thinking and negative self talk taught by poorly written Big Book Speak zombies!
We talk about Jacob's upcoming trip to Vikings Training Camp and potential MLB trades before the deadline. We're sorry if this one sucks, it's our first one.

Our guest this evening is Lance Dodes, MD, author of The Sober Truth: Debunking the Bad Science Behind 12-Step Programs and the Rehab Industry. Dr. Dodes is a Training and Supervising analyst emeritus with the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and recently retired assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
We were very excited to have Greg Williams, Creator of the full length documentary film The Anonymous People on our show!
The Anonymous People is a documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. Courageous addiction recovery advocates have come out of the shadows and are organizing to end discrimination and move toward recovery-based solutions.
The Anonymous People story is told through the faces and voices of citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, public figures, and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them.

Pope says about two percent of priests are pedophiles:
"Many of my collaborators who fight with me (against paedophilia) reassure me with reliable statistics that say that the level of paedophilia in the Church is at about two percent,"Francis was quoted as saying.
"This data should hearten me but I have to tell you that it does not hearten me at all. In fact, I think that it is very grave," he was quoted as saying.
The pope was quoted as saying that, while most paedophilia took place in family situations, "even we have this leprosy in our house".
Jacob talks about his time at Vikings training camp, while Tanner attempts to get into thinking about DHes in a different way. Also, Salary Cap Pros and Cons, and Trivia.
Jeff and Chris chat—and laugh—about getting to the truth in recovery (both in general and in the context of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous,) the shame we accumulate during our active addiction, and how it all sort of ties into our big, messy addicts' egos.

Practical experience shows that nothing will so much insure immunity from drinking as intensive work with other alcoholics. It works when other activities fail.
But you can't give away something you don't have
Until we have spoken with complete candor with someone and they have done the same with us, we still didn’t belong, Step Five was the answer it was the beginning of a true kin ship between God and Man. Not only are we to SPEAK a Fifth Step, we are also to HEAR a Fifth Step, who hears a Fifth Step? In most instances a sponsor, so until you have heard a Fifth you still did not belong, you were circling the field waiting to run out of spiritual gasoline, and then its another crash and burn Vern.
The problem with willingness is that it takes discipline, the problem with discipline is that it takes motivation, the problem with motivation is that not now becomes manana.
