March 2023 Blog is all about service and it's way to inform lasting recovery and un-stuck any of us who do not feel the joy of living a life of meaning. Help another, water a plant, cuddle your pet, while self-reflection matters, turning our eyeballs from staring at the monkeys in our brain to look out and engage life, that's ½ of it. Anyway, we talk all about it. Or write all about it. If you want “talk about it” google Emotional Sobriety Podcast as Joe C is a guest for a two-part series on Emotional Sobriety and the Twelve Traditions and 12-Step service.

These researchers, pictured below are talking between sessions at the Recovery Capital Conference of Canada in Calgary (April 2022). Both of these men have been involved in recovery research for decades. We all have anecdotal lived experience so we have something to say when people ask, “What are the chances of getting and staying sober?” “Is relapse to be expected?” “How sober is sober, exactly?”
If you are long-term sober, so dry you're a fire hazard, here's a blog that can put your know-how up against scientific evidence about outcome rates and what influences recovery success. If you're new, we have some idea what's on your mind and while every journey is unique, this will give you a sense of what it takes, and what works best. READ IT, SHARE IT, HAVE YOUR SAY HERE
