Most people are aware that alcoholics, whether they are heavy drinkers or not, will experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, both physical and emotional, when they first get sober. Some of the more obvious signs of this “acute” or early withdrawal include: shaking, sweating, racing heartbeat, muscle twitches, insomnia and acute anxiety. These symptoms are mostly physical and may last as long as 2 weeks, but we are prepared for them and if we stay sober, most people think it will be smooth sailing going forward. It is true that people may feel better after the first couple of weeks, however it is the sobriety–based symptoms, known as Post-Acute Withdrawal (PAWs) that cause many people to relapse. PAWs may last as long as 2 years, so understanding what it is and learning ways to manage these symptoms is critical to maintaining long-term sobriety. On this episode of The Bubble Hour we will discuss these symptoms are share ways to deal with and relieve the effect of PAWS. Whether you’re just getting sober or have been sober for a while, this is a very important show for YOU.

The legendary “Horse Whisperer,” Monty Roberts, is running free, resilience-building workshops for veterans and their families. The three-day program involves working closely with horses. The individuals and horses develop a special bond built upon mutual trust and respect. Join-Up offers everyone an effective tool to rediscover themselves through the eyes of the horse. This self-awareness exercise deals effectively with emotional trauma, anti-social behavior and withdrawal, anger, stress, combat stress and even Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI).
Roberts holds two Ph.D.s in Behavioral Sciences. In these workshops, he demonstrates the deeply healing power of establishing a trusting relationship with horses without the use of force. With his soft-spoken, nurturing style, Roberts assists veterans as they learn to cause a partnership with the horse. After three transformational days, veterans can better understand how to control their anger, confront painful memories, cope with real-life situations and move on with their lives and relationships. situations and move on with their lives and relationships.
We have been working with veterans suffering from PTSI, over the course of five separate recent clinics this year. The results are coming in, and the outcome is fantastic. We have people laughing and getting back to a normal life who have been afflicted with PTSI for upwards of 35 years.
All the way from Vietnam to Afghanistan, these injured warriors come home in a terrible state and need our help to reconnect with their communities. The horses are doing their work with incredible efficiency. Individuals are welcome to bring a spouse/significant other to attend the workshop with them. Contact email@example.com.
From the Amazon description of Inside the Lufthansa HEI$T: The FBI Lied by Kerry Whalen, our guest this Friday night:
It was a bitterly cold autumn night in 1978, at a deserted end of the cargo area of John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. At 3:00 a.m., the most notorious armed robbery in American history started to unfold, and so did the meticulous planning of the mastermind.
Thirty minutes into the robbery, a Lufthansa German Airlines cargo worker arrived at the back of the building and crossed the path of three heavily armed wiseguys from Brooklyn. A bloody encounter ensued and the wiseguys took control of the building and all ten of its employees. The wiseguys, later to be known as Goodfellas, emptied the Valuable Room and made their record-breaking cash withdrawal.
In just over one hour, the wiseguys drove away with the Mother Lode, five million bucks in untraceable cash and supposedly a big payoff for each of them.
Forget everything in the newspapers about the diligent investigation initiated by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn.
It never happened.
What is true? The bloody trail of murder; a dozen people including a wife and a girlfriend.
From the very start, the investigation into the $5,850,000 heist was bungled by the feds with their incompetence, disregard for the law, lies, threats and one-way street attitude. A newspaper reported, “It’s disorganized law enforcement, against organized crime.”
I crossed the path of the wiseguys and FBI. I was that cargo worker. I kept notes. This is my story.
Methamphetamine is a dangerous drug that is illegal and mostly sold on the streets, though a weaker prescription form of the drug with the brand name Desoxyn is occasionally prescribed to narcolepsy patients. If you or a loved one is addicted to the drug, you will need a methamphetamine recovery program to help break the addiction.
Due to this big change in how a person feels, most meth users will continue to use more of the drug, needing a bigger dose each time in order to get the same rush and euphoric feelings. Continued use of larger dosages can lead to dependency, abuse and addiction. It can also lead to some fairly dangerous side effects, some of which can be severe or even fatal. They include:
The Five Stages of Recovery from Crystal Methamphetamine
Stage 1: Withdrawal (Days 0 – 15), Also known as the “sleep, eat, and drink” stage, your body and brain are in healing overdrive
Stage 2: The Honeymoon (Days 16 – 45), A lot of people will relapse here because of this overconfidence. But not you.
Stage 3: The Wall (6 Weeks – 4 Months), The Wall is often where people will relapse.
Stage 4: Adjustment (Months 4 – 6) ,Adjustment” because that’s what characterizes this time period—adjusting, physically, socially, and emotionally, to life without crystal.
Stage 5: Ongoing Recovery (Months 6 – 12), Recovery is always ongoing.

Schizophrenia: is a character of psychotic conditions characterized by withdrawal from reality--and accompanied by highly variable affective, behavioral, and intellectual disturdances "Split Mind." [Bible content calles for "unnatural people."]
Withdrawal is a common male behavior in relationships, but it’s beginning to seem that entire groups of men are withdrawing from women in general. Men should not strive to stay out of trouble. We should strive to be the best men we can be. Only then are we worthy of women’s love. We shouldn’t complain if women are unenthusiastic about our lack of direction. We certainly shouldn’t cry victim if our spiritual listlessness drives them to the arms of men who pilot their own ships—or at least appear to do so.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. We men learned how to change diapers and cook risotto. We learned to watch for barely perceptible nods of approval before opening doors for women. We even learned to manscape, for goodness sake.
Women were supposed to be happy with the new variety of men. Yet they are divorcing us just like they divorced our insensitive forefathers. American woman initiate 69 percent of divorces. Who can blame women for being bored with men these days? Far too many of us have lost our masculine fortitude. That fortitude has nothing to do with being dominant or avoiding vacuum cleaners. It’s a product of solid values and strong backbones. I think most men are retreating from the sense that nothing they do is good enough, and women will forever be unhappy with them. They’re propelled even further by a small, but vocal, contingent of women who provide a steady stream of anger and disapproval.
It often seems like prescription medications are given out like candy. Sometimes it seems like the doctors aren’t really listening, and after giving us less than five minutes of their time, they send us out the door with multiple prescriptions and bid us with the common farewell of “See you in three months!”
With an overburdened system, our veterans often take matters into their own hands and make their own decisions about the way they will take their medications or discontinue their use without a doctor’s supervision. Everyone is unique and different and what works for one individual may not work for another. Getting the right prescription and the right dosage is crucial to our combat veterans.
While under the influence of a medication, or lack thereof, often everyone around the patient likely has a better idea of how the medications are working than the patient himself understands. Everyone needs to have someone working in a supportive role who will give feedback so that adjustments can be made and medications can be used effectively
Join us for VOW Talk Radio on Tuesday, September 18, at 7:00 PM EDT, as we discuss the pros and cons of prescription medications and the perfect storm that often brews from a cold turkey withdrawal. Shawn Gourley of Military with PTSD will be joining us as we discuss our personal experiences with medications, withdrawals, and the turmoil that can ensue behind closed doors for our families.
In the 1st hour, New York Times best-selling author Roger Stone lays out the facts--how LBJ wiretapped King, bugged his hotel rooms, had the FBI threaten King and how federal intelligence agencies under Johnson where involved in King's murder.

In the 2nd hour, Author Toby Harnden believes that President Obama’s troop withdrawal plan invites terrorists to regenerate in Afghanistan and the debilitating lack of resources and manpower have jeopardized the NATO exit strategy.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
