From the Vault: 5 Things We Should Stop Saying to Alcoholics

Recover Out Loud, The Magdalen House Podcast

In this episode of RecoverED, we discuss 5 things well-meaning people often say to alcoholics and why saying these things can actually be harmful. We take these phrases and compare them to what the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous says and how they are in direct conflict to the curriculum we teach and the solution we have found. These 5 phrases are: 1. Play the tape through./ Remember the consequences. 2. Just don't drink no matter what. 3. Do it for your kids. 4. Wait a year before you sponsor. 5. You have to really want it./ They must have not wanted it bad enough. To receive more information on alcoholism and recovery, you can request a speaker at magdalenhouse.org/resources-and-education/education/for in-person and virtual presentations. The Magdalen House is a 501c3 nonprofit organization helping women achieve sobriety and sustain recovery from alcoholism at no cost and based on 12-Step spiritual principles. You can learn more about our comprehensive recovery services at magdalenhouse.org. Please note, the curriculum we teach through our programs is from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.

AA Recovery Interviews
Faisal N. – Sober 16 Years

Faisal's remarkable success in business is closely aligned with the success he enjoys as a daily meeting-maker in Alcoholics Anonymous. For over 16 years, he has worked his Program from the middle of the herd with ongoing service commitments to his AA club and continuous sponsorship of other men. Though he functioned with the disease for years and built an outstanding business, alcohol and cocaine abuse dogged him on his road to personal ruin. Along the way he added workaholism to the toxic mix, which made him oblivious to the needs of his family and friends. But it was the fear of not getting what he wanted and/or losing what he had that drove his frantic desire to succeed. By the time Faisal hit the rooms of AA at the age of 37, he was finally ready to concede to his family and his innermost self, that he was indeed an alcoholic in desperate need of help. Faisal's story begins with a Pakistani boy raised in a strong, good family whose religious convictions forbade the use of alcohol. His family moved to Beirut when he was 3. After a civil war broke out in Lebanon, Faisal was sent to an elite boarding school in England from ages 7-18. There he encountered, but learned how to overcome, the prejudice leveled at him by students whose aristocratic parents were as absent as his. By the time he was 18, he was ready to shed the image of second-class citizen imposed on him at school. He came to the United States where he attended college and really learned to drink. After college, he founded a company and set out to slay the business world. His familial role and duties as the oldest son created additional pressure on his ceaseless, yet anxious drive to succeed. Unfortunately, alcohol, and later drugs, hitched along on that drive and started the slow, but steady decline. Lost weekends and benders, on top of 16-hour workdays eventually exacted a terrible toll on his life and he found himself in jeopardy of losing his wife and kids. After seriously contemplating suicide, enough was enough for Faisal and he crossed the threshold of the last house on the block, AA. He's been sober since. There's a lot more to Faisal's story that will enthrall you for the next 70 minutes. I invite you to settle into another excellent episode of AA Recovery Interviews with my friend and AA brother, Faisal N. Check out Howard's Big Book Podcast, the complete unabridged audio version of the First and Second Editions of Alcoholics Anonymous.

AA Recovery Interviews
Kelvin S. – Sober 5 Years

AA Recovery Interviews

Kelvin's life was defined and dominated by booze and drugs. Though there are similarities to other sobriety tales, many parts of his story contain things that most alcoholics must be referring to when they say, “There but for the grace of God go I” or “That could have been me”. Drinking, smoking crack, gang membership, desperate crimes, jail, broken probation, prison, and parole violations all occurred in within five years after his first drink. Raised in a home rife with family secrets, Kelvin's mother did her best to help keep her kids out of trouble. But desegregation during his middle school years had Kelvin bussed across town to schools where he struggled to find a persona with which he could fit in. Back in his neighborhood he was bullied for that and had to adopt a different persona to fit that environment. Confusion, lack of direction, lost identity, and low self-esteem inevitably became the drivers to drinking and smoking marijuana at 17. He soon joined a gang and started smoking crack cocaine. Purse-snatching, shop-lifting and other crimes put him at odds with the legal system and put Kelvin in jail, and later prison. He mostly ignored or dismissed alternatives to incarceration, such as rehab, though he did attend some AA meetings in his early twenties. The next 20 years until Kelvin got sober in AA are an odyssey of drug and alcohol addled behavior. He floundered in a sea lost jobs, multiple treatment centers, bitter divorce, crime, jail, and many failed attempts to get and stay sober. He finally found AA in 2017. Ernest in his efforts to stay sober through AA, he wasn't completely convinced that AA would work. So he set up a contingency fund into which he made regular deposits. If AA didn't work, he'd have enough money saved to drink himself to death. Fortunately, Kelvin went to meetings, got a sponsor, did service work around the AA club, and worked the steps sufficient to claim a place in the middle of the Program. After a year of AA recovery, Kelvin liquidated the contingency fund, bought a watch, went to the next meeting. The rest of Kelvin's story is captivating, fascinating, and colorful. My interview with him enriched my sobriety and I hope it will do the same for you. So sit back and enjoy the next hour and ten minutes with my friend and AA brother, Kelvin S.

AA Recovery Interviews

Janet's family of origin was rife with alcoholism. but also some recovery. Her father remained sober in AA for nearly 50 years. When she was a little girl, Janet even attended some AA meetings early in her father's sobriety. But like so many alcoholics, Janet's own foray into drinking was undeterred by family history or her father's experience, though, years before quitting herself, she did ask him for a copy of the Big Book. At 17, Janet started drinking and progressed through high school, college, and early work life with few consequences from her increasingly frequent drinking. But her pattern of alcohol consumption showed the usual signs of trouble: Steady withdrawal from relationships, isolation from friends and family, and growing depression. Though she sought treatment for her co-occurring depression, it wasn't until Janet's realization that alcohol was running side-by-side with that depression, with derailment of her life not far ahead. By the time she came into AA in 1983, she had become emotionally, physically, and spiritually wrecked, with little hope of redemption. But she persevered during her early days of sobriety by attending meetings and just not drinking. Over time, she got a sponsor, worked the steps, and commenced her service work as a sponsor. Janet claimed her seat in the middle of the Program and she's worked through many challenges over nearly four decades to stay there. Her commitment and dedication to AA is evident to all, as is her willingness to help other alcoholics. I believe you'll find Janet's story to be exemplary of good long-term recovery in the Program. Her approach to sobriety is both instructive and inspiring. So please enjoy the next hour and ten minutes with my friend and AA sister, Janet H. Check out Howard's Big Book Podcast, the complete unabridged audio version of the First and Second Editions of Alcoholics Anonymous.

AA Recovery Interviews

Though Don didn't start drinking until his late teens, his first drunk was a harbinger of things to come. Drawn to the quixotic allure of the hard-drinking, tortured artist, Don's painting created a solitary lifestyle that nurtured his growing alcoholism. Ironically, painting houses became his chief means of funding his daily drinking in neighborhood bars. Though alcohol consumed more and more of his life, Don still managed to function well enough to support his growing family. But his drinking inevitably became a source of major damage to his marriage. Half-hearted attempts to stay sober over the years consistently failed. The hole he'd excavated was taking on the appearance of a grave. But an unexpected realization about his alcoholism and its effect on Don's young son provided the moment of clarity Don desperately needed to change his life. He quit drinking and went to AA the next day. That was 28 years ago. As he attended meetings, worked the steps with a sponsor, and began to sponsor other men, Don's journey in AA steadily improved his life. Though true spiritual awakening didn't occur until years into the program, he persevered and gradually found spiritual connection from which many gifts have arisen. Taking him through both tragedies and times of struggle when he wanted to drink but didn't, his sobriety demonstrated the impact of a well-worked Program. Don's long-term marriage and other gifts over the decades provide proof against doubt that the Program really does enrich life one day at a time. Don's story is both informative and captivating. Even if you've been able to piece it together by listening to his podcast, I think you'll enjoy hearing it in the context and emotional resonance of the AA Recovery Interviews podcast.

** Please leave a rating on your podcast app. Thanks! ** Kyle's hard-fought battle with addiction and alcoholism was one he thought he could win on his own. He even managed to stay dry without AA for five years. But they were miserable years packed with trouble in every aspect of his life. So, back to drinking he went for ten more years, during which his disease rode him hard to the bottom. As his life swelled with problems and his options were dwindling, Kyle finally found recovery in Alcoholics Anonymous three years ago. Though his period of continuous sobriety is relatively brief compared to double-digit sobriety, the “how it was” and the “what happened” parts of his story are every bit as powerful as those of AA members who have enjoyed decades of sobriety. For many of us, the recency of Kyle's experience is a stark reminder that the disease is as brutal as ever, offering little respite to those who suffer. In Kyle's case, a difficult childhood led into early drug and alcohol use. As alcoholism and addiction surfaced during is later teenage years, Kyle was placed in rehab as a high school junior, but it had little effect on the burgeoning disease that he resumed immediately after. A hoped-for recovery in the U.S. Air Force largely failed as Kyle's behavior and an alcoholic black-out during deployment caused more trouble. Once out of the service, he resumed his addictions, though, like many, he was still able to marry and have children and job despite his active disease. He even managed to stay dry for five years. But without a Program, he was mostly miserable along the way. By the time he got to AA, he'd been thoroughly beaten by the disease and ready to take “certain steps” toward recovery. Three years later, through working the steps with a sponsor, Kyle's sobriety is demonstrated by his sponsorship of other men and his attendance at daily meetings. It's a far cry from where he was when he got to AA, but he's taking nothing for granted as his disease resides around every corner. Kyle's is a cautionary tale, instructive of many of the “do's” and “don'ts” that are so prevalent in Alcoholics Anonymous.

Dennis describes North Stars in AA,—people who have experienced what he is going through and who give assurance that all will work out. In the Ask-It-Basket, Victor M. wants to know the difference between a "character defect" and a "shortcoming." Dennis, Don and Sam share their thoughts, and Big Book historian Bill S. weighs in too.

Lauren rose to the top of her profession as a prima ballerina and enjoyed international acclaim during her 23 years of thrilling audiences around the world. But the career she had built through years of intense training and dedication were absolutely no match for the alcoholism and drug addiction she encountered along the way. Her early forays with alcohol and marijuana were not unlike the experiences of most of us. She found they provided physical relaxation, sociability, and soothing mental calm amidst her grueling schedule of training, traveling, and performing. But soon Lauren passed the invisible, though inevitable, line between casual use and addiction, and she found herself a hopeless alcoholic. Fortunately, her unmitigated talent, ceaseless training, and unmatched dedication somehow kept up with her disease. She was a highly functional alcoholic. And she continued to excel as a premier dancer, though her ability to hide her alcoholism began to wane. As her work-life began to suffer, the disease continued to pull Jenga pieces from the tower of success she had built. Her personal and professional lives began to teeter. Facing the completely disheartening collapse of all she had strived for, an unexpected run-in with the legal system turned into the divine nudge she needed. As the curtain was falling on a beautiful life nearly extinguished by alcoholism, Lauren found AA in 2009 and has been sober ever since.      Though Lauren's backstory as a ballet superstar has literally been the subject of many articles, as well as a theatre production and upcoming book, the most meaningful and impactful gifts in her life occurred after she found AA. Working the steps with a sponsor, attending regular meetings, spiritual practice, sponsoring other women, and indefatigable service work both within AA and the dance community, have enriched her life beyond compare. Lauren's AA recovery story is sure to touch your heartstrings and I'm glad I can bring it to you in this podcast. So sit back and enjoy the next hour and ten minutes with my good friend and AA sister, Lauren A. Check out Howard's Big Book Podcast, the complete unabridged audio version of the First and Second Editions of Alcoholics Anonymous. The Big Book Podcast is an engaging cover-to-cover, word-for-word reading of all 11 chapters and Personal Stories, many of which were left out of the Third and Fourth Editions. Follow us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Or listen on https://bigbookpodcast.com If you've enjoyed my AA Recovery Interviews series and my Big Book podcast, have a listen to Lost Stories of the Big Book, 30 Original Stories Missing from the 3rd and 4th Editions of Alcoholics Anonymous. It's an engaging audiobook I narrated to bring these stories to life for AA members who've never seen them. These timeless testamonials were originally cut to make room for newer stories in the 3rd and 4th Editions. But their vitally important messages of hope are as meaningful today as when they were first published. Many listeners will hear these stories for the first time. Lost Stories of the Big Book is available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. It's also available as a Kindle book if you'd like to read along with the audio.
