“As soon as you are ready….”
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) was founded in 1935. Bill Wilson and the founding fathers created the 12 steps of recovery and wrote a best-selling book to support it.
Millions of people worldwide have entered this revolutionary program's rooms. Many have succeeded and created a life of sobriety. Many have failed and returned to a life of addiction.
Sober.coffee is definitively pro-sobriety. We recognize that not everybody is required to get sober the AA way. There are other programs out there, and we cover them on the podcast(s). Some found success on their own, some through books, some through therapy, and some through methods we are unaware of.
We can tell you that for these two guys, no other way worked. We were out of options.
Our message is clear to those living in distress caused by alcohol and/or drug abuse: “this program worked and continues to work for us. “Therefore, we beg you to try it in the hopes that it will work for you.
The part of the story we hope you get to sooner rather than later is that it's not just about abstinence and not drinking/drugging. It is about so much more: it's about thriving through life on a whole new set of principles and practices. It’s about living with less stress, less drama, and less complication.
That is the hope that awaits those who give this program their all.
In the words of the great American philosopher Kevin Cronin:
So if you're tired of the same old story, turn some pages,
we will be here when you are ready to roll with the changes!
