We are so excited to have special guest Dana Bowman, Author of "Bottled; A Mom's Guide To Early Recovery" on the show!
"An unflinching and hilarious memoir about recovery as a mother of young kids, Bottledexplains the perils moms face with drinking and chronicles the author’s path to recovery, from hitting bottom to the months of early sobriety—a blur of pain and chaos—to her now (in)frequent moments of peace.
Punctuated by potent, laugh-out-loud sarcasm, Bottled offers practical suggestions on how to be a sober, present-in-the-moment mom, one day at a time, and provides much needed levity on an issue too often treated with deadly seriousness."
This book is fantastic, and we highly recommend it for anyone in recovery, who is struggling with drinking, or who loves someone who is in recovery or dealing with addiction.
Dana's prose is poignant, vulnerable, honest and funny; this book is a must-read for anyone navigating early sobriety. We are thrilled to have her on the show!
Setting boundaries is an essential skill in life, especially for people in recovery. Alcoholic and addicts often have dysfunctional boundaries: either too rigid (leading to suppressed emotions or distant relationships) or too enmeshed (depriving us of a sense of personal identity). If we don't learn how to create and maintain healthy boundaries interpersonal relationships may continue to be defined by old roles and patterns, increasing the risk of relapse.
As part of recovery, we learn how to set boundaries and to respect other people’s boundaries in return.
But, especially in early recovery, this can be daunting. An important aspect of setting healthy boundaries is learning, simply, how to say "no". Another important part of setting boundaries is identifying how we are feeling; something that can take practice when we are newly sober. We can't teach other people how to treat us if we can't identify our own thoughts, feelings and emotions.
On this show we will discuss what boundaries are, why they are important, and share tips, tools and advice on ways we identify, build and strengthen them, with an emphasis on how to do this when you are newly sober.
In this edition of the Recovery Radio Podcast host David Gerber is joined by Michael Boccia for a discussion about relationships in early recovery. Early recovery is the most vulnerable time in the recovery process. Alcoholics and addicts often seek validation through relationships in the early stages of the recovery process. David and Michael explore these difficulties and the benefits of getting to know oneself.

Karen Newell is an innovator in the emerging field of brainwave entrainment audio meditation, Karen empowers others in their own journeys of discovery. Along with Dr Eben Alexander, they healing in new ways!
Meditation & heart awareness were central elements to her many different subjects of study. But Karen found it extremely challenging to sit still with focused attention for any length of time. She discovered that the most effective aid for meditation was monotonous sound — not music and singing melodies, but the simple tones produced by crystal bowls, tuning forks, gongs, chimes and human chanting.
When it came to modern methods Karen found that the regular practice of listening to recordings containing binaural beats minimized distracting thoughts and restlessness, allowing her to finally reach the expanded states of awareness she sought. Karen joined with Kevin Kossi to create original recordings unmatched by any others either had experienced. Together they created Sacred Acoustics. sacredacoustics.com

HOST DEBBIE BLACKWELL
Abbeygale Quinn is a psychic medium and sidereal astrologer from Michigan, with over 17 years of professional experience. As a nondenominational minister, she has been helping people from around the world through spiritual counseling, psychic and astrology readings, paranormal investigations, and psychic development instruction.
Abbeygale’s psychic abilities developed early. While spirit communication was easy enough, her ability to read psychic energy was even more pronounced. Not only could she see and feel the souls of the departed, she could also see and feel the thoughts, emotions, and experiences of the living. Difficulties in early life due to intense psychic experience drove Abbeygale to study metaphysics and paranormal phenomena.
Early in her professional career, Abbeygale realized many of the energies she was sensing in her clients were celestial in nature. The ability to see and feel the cosmic influences in people’s lives psychically made the subsequent study of astrology a natural choice.
As a seeker of the truth, Abbeygale was drawn to astrology’s ancient origins. Her research into Mesopotamian astronomy has led her, along with a growing number of western astrologers, to adopt the sidereal zodiac in favor of the tropical, as the foundation of her work.
Despite her love and appreciation for ancient astrology, Abbeygale is firm believer in modern innovation. She is currently working on what she believes will be a ground-breaking book that will identify the true source of all accurate astrological predictions.
As a practicing Taoist, Abbeygale is a strong proponent of living a simple and natural lifestyle. A long-time practitioner of martial arts and yoga, she prefers to spend her free time engaging in fitness.
