Dan Shares the life lessons he has learned over the decades he has been sober in the AA program. His long term sobriety and continued involvement in the program is inspiring. He tells us how his medical diagnosis of a mental health issues in addition to his alcoholism has played out during his recovery journey. He explains how his prayers to a Higher Power have shifted from "I am sorry" to "Thank You". We explore the gift of change in prospective that come with years of attempting to let go of our old drinking life and then somehow embracing a new life with new tools that bringing us into harmony with our Higher Power. This conversation was fun to record and we laughed most of the way through. I read "How it Works" from Chapter 5 of the Big Book for the first time on the show. I also shared a story that made me get emotional (cry) for the first time on the Podcast. So please enjoy this episode of my friend Dan P who is a super kind, intelligent, and thoughtful man.
