I like to say "continuous" because I'd have 20 years if I measured it starting when I first tried to get clean and sober. 24 years if I measured it starting from the first time my parents put me in rehab. In all honesty, I'm having a hard time feeling good about my 3 y...

I’m not saying that I discovered a way to escape the feelings - far from it. I just consumed enough drugs and alcohol to dull the senses of myself and 6 unborn children from the future. What that did, was store all of my pain into the active volcano that is my soul. Wh...

Otherwise, what's the point?

7 years ago I tried to end my life. The only reason I hadn't tried that before then was because I couldn't stomach the pain that my death would cause to my family. Before I judge someone like Chester Bennington for taking his life and leav...

How insane is that?

In this episode of Radio Rehab, my guest Co-Host David S. and I discuss what happens when things get good. And I mean really good. Like the kind of good that is unfamiliar and awkward. For me, when things get good, that's when I really need to get to...

and my silence will benefit no one.It's that simple.

 Man, this is a tough one.

If I was working a solid program, and was therefore unaffected by the death of my dad, I'd have 17 years of sobriety right now. Can you imagine? I can't. Because I've never surpassed 3 years of continuous sobriety.

I'm inspired to write on th...

That brilliant quote is from Mitch Hedberg, one of my all time favorite comedians.

Sadly, this disease claimed Mitch's life in 2005. He knew his demons but he wasn't ready to face them. Other comedians used to stage interventions for Mitch in order to get him to stop u...

That fantastic quote is from an article by Cleo Sailer from The Fix.

Producer Char and I had a conversation about this topic in this episode of Radio Rehab.

The main gist of the episode is that 12 steps and 12 traditions can be used in every aspect of our lives--Especia...

Answer: no.

Well...yes and no.

Obviously I'm allowed to have feelings about anything that happens. What I can't do is lash out or get angry at someone. Especially someone who's known me since my B.S. days. That stands for "Before Sobriety."  I just made it up. Super fitt...
