In this journey in recovery, we will be hearing the experience, strength, and hope of Joe C in his living in Step 7 in his life. Now, a heads up on this one. The sound quality is a little rough in spots on this episode. The online recording did not come through great. BUT, the content is amazing. So, please listen past the flaws in the sound and to the beauty of what is being said. In this conversation, Joe C talks about a beautiful, long relationship with his wife and his awakening, late in life to his own issues. Her support and help, her death, and how the Steps of Recovery and the program have and do help him to see that “it keeps getting better”. He also talks about one of my new favorite 4 letter words, “Stay”. You will gain a ton from this episode as you Listen and learn and then apply what you learn.
Back in 2019 I was hosting another podcast called Journey Through Life, it was a long-form conversation/interview style podcast. It was not recovery related, although I was actively working my recovery. Duriing this time, I felt compelled by my Higher Power to do a series on the Journey Through Life podcast called Journey in Recovery. In this series, I interviewed 16 people over a 3 month period on each of the 12 Steps of Recovery. It was during this 3 month period that my own recovery walk was radically changed and my vision of what the Steps can do for anyone, anywhere, from any background was drastically opened up.
During the month of December, I am re-playing those episodes of the Journey in Recovery series with minor edits and re-branding so that the listening audience can get more background on several of our Reco12 guests who had more time to share their stories here, as well as to get introduced to others who have not been Reco12 guests.
Reco12 is an organization with the mission of learning and sharing the similarities of addiction of all kinds and the similarities of recovery from all afflictions and addictions, and gaining and sharing tools and hope from others who are trudging this road. We are an open meeting for ALL, no matter your life experiences, faith traditions, nationality, or background.
Reco12 is a self-supporting service and we appreciate your help in keeping it that way.
