In this podcast... we confront and smash the following myth:Myth: The Twelve Steps are all about God.Although the word "God" actually shows up in the Twelve Steps themselves four times and twice more by referring to "him", AA principles nonetheless allow for a very broad conception of the "God" idea.At the very beginnings of AA, the co-founder, Bill Wilson, resisted the very idea of any god. His friend smashed Bill's resistance when he asked: "Why don't you choose your own conception of God"? This was an idea that invited anyone to join the fellowship.There are countless references to a ‘Higher Power' throughout AA writings. It states in the Second Step, for example, that a "power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity".The AA program allows anyone to define a power greater than ourselves any way we wish; it does not make an exclusive claim to the truth, nor does it claim that AA is the only way to stay sober.The God idea is often a barrier to people joining AA, even when they would benefit from doing so. The truth is that alcoholics and addicts have an intense fear of giving up control, even when they have no control over the disease themselves.
Part 3 (and the last part) of a conversation with Dale S. Bill and Jesse talk with Dale about: how no matter how far down the scale we've gone, we see how our experience can be useful to others; Step 1 and the alcoholic cycle; defects of character; the relationship of a sponsor/sponsee and working with a sponsor. #recovery #sobriety #sober #addicted #soberpodcast #recoverypodcast #theudrcast #spiritualmalady #billwardlife #billwardlifefirstnation #theudrcast #Billwardchangemaker #changemakers #changemaker #thegoddope #underagedrinking #firstnations #drinkingproblem #drinkingsolution #awakening #spiritualawakening #Spirituallity #recoverylife #wedorecover #recoveryispossible #Billw #sobercrew #mentalhealth #mentalhealthsolution #findingmyself #helpingothers #higherpower #meninrecovery #womeninrecovery #alanon #selfhelp #inventory #selfinventory #selfsatisfied #selfexamination #addictionpodcast #alcoholic #aa #ca #na #12steps #12stepspodcast #levelup #bestlife #bestwaytorecover #spiritualmalady #spiritualsickness #step3 Step1 #step2 #step4 #step5 #step6 #step10 #step7 #step8 #step9#step11 #step12 #bigbook #bigbookstudy #fear #anxiety #thebigbook #God #Higherpower #Creator #sobercrew #spiritshome #yycaddiction #suicide #suicideprevention #savepeople #sponsorship #sponsoring #sponsee #alanon

In this podcast... we confront and smash the following myth:Myth: AA meetings are secret.Some AA meetings are known as "closed" meetings which are private (not secret) affairs open to those who would prefer to keep their membership private.The second type of AA meeting is called an "open" meeting which is open to the public. This is where an AA member, and often an Al-Anon member, shares their stories as a way of educating the public on how they have recovered. Al-Anon was founded 70 years ago for the families and friends of alcoholics to give them the means to recover themselves.In fact, very little is not disclosed in the fellowship of AA. It is a 501C3 not-for-profit organisation that has its books open to the public for inspection and is obliged to file tax returns and provide a full accounting on an annual basis.The idea of secrecy stems from the days when there was a stigma associated with membership in AA, and there still is to an extent. We feel that every AA member has the right to privacy, and even though I can disclose my membership, I have no right to disclose yours.Although the idea of AA being a "secret society" is a myth that still lingers, our responsibility as AA members to share the truth endures as well.

Harvard Kennedy School faculty member Jorrit de Jong and Harvard Business School Professor Amy Edmondson say the big, intractable problems challenges facing city leaders today are too complex to be addressed by any one agency or government department. Complex challenges like the shortage of economic opportunity and affordable housing, homelessness, the effects of the climate crisis, crime—and can only be solved by multiple organizations working together. But that's easier said than done. Bringing together government agencies, nonprofits, private business, academia, and the public into successful collaborations can be a huge challenge. Different people bring different agendas and goals. They don't necessarily trust each other. Sometimes they can't even agree on what the problem actually is and they fail before even getting started. In a recent study, de Jong and Edmondson found that the most successful problem-solving collaborations have a number of things in common, including building a culture of safety and trust and being empowered to try, fail, and learn from mistakes. Sometimes, they say, the key can be just finding a place to start. Jorrit de Jong is the Emma Bloomberg Senior Lecturer in Public Policy and Management at Harvard Kennedy School. He is director of the Bloomberg Center for Cities at Harvard University. His research and teaching focus on the challenges of making the public sector more effective, efficient, equitable, and responsive to social needs. A specialist in experiential learning, Jorrit has taught strategic management and public problem-solving in degree and executive education programs at HKS and around the world. He is also Faculty Co-Chair of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative, a joint program of Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School, the world's most comprehensive effort to advance effective problem-solving and innovation through executive education, research, curriculum development, and fieldwork in cities.He is also Academic Director of the Innovations in Government Program at the Kennedy School's Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation. In that capacity, he launched the Innovation Field Lab, an experiential learning, executive education, and action-oriented research project working with 15 cities in Massachusetts and New York to help them leverage data, community engagement and innovation to revitalize distressed and underinvested neighborhoods. He holds a PhD in Public Policy and Management from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, as well as a Master in Philosophy and a Master in Public Administration from Leiden University. He has written extensively, including the books “The State of Access: Success and Failure of Democracies to Create Equal Opportunities;” “Agents of Change: Strategy and Tactics for Social Innovation;” and “Dealing with Dysfunction: Innovative Problem Solving in the Public Sector.”Amy C. Edmondson is the Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at the Harvard Business School, a chair established to support the study of human interactions that lead to the creation of successful enterprises that contribute to the betterment of society. Edmondson has been recognized by the biannual Thinkers50 global ranking of management thinkers since 2011, and most recently was ranked No. 1 in 2021. he also received that organization's Breakthrough Idea Award in 2019, and Talent Award in 2017. She studies teaming, psychological safety, and organizational learning, and her articles have been published in numerous academic and management outlets. Her 2019 book, “The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation and Growth,” has been translated into 15 languages. Her prior books: “Teaming: How organizations learn, innovate and compete in the knowledge economy;” “Teaming to Innovate;” and “Extreme Teaming” explore teamwork in dynamic organizational environments. Edmondson's latest book, “Right Kind of Wrong,” builds on her prior work on psychological safety and teaming to provide a framework for thinking about, discussing, and practicing the science of failing well. Edmondson received her PhD in organizational behavior, AM in psychology, and AB in engineering and design from Harvard University.Ralph Ranalli of the HKS Office of Communications and Public Affairs is the host, producer, and editor of HKS PolicyCast.

Thank you Jenson USA | Maxxis Tires | FOX ShoxWe're honored to have Jack Rice on The Inside Line. You probably know Jack as a mountain bike race photographer with his work from the World Cups and #USDH races featured on Vital. He was also the team photographer for Transition Factory Racing this season. However, just a few years ago, Jack had no significant photography experience and very little time on a mountain bike. So how did he become a successful photographer in our scene in such a short time? Through grit, determination, and a desire to never go back to what he calls his old life. Today Jack shares his story which includes growing up in Brooklyn, experiencing friends lost in the 9/11 terror attacks, tackling severe drug and alcohol addiction, and the power of community and family. We also talk about what it was like breaking into the World Cup MTB photography community and dig into what the future looks like. There are heavy topics covered in this episode, so please be advised if there are sensitive or younger ears listening.Thank you, listeners, for making Vital MTB such an incredible community.

Burnout is one of the most common dangers to programmers over their career, and I was no exception. Software development and programming can make it difficult to find a healthy balance between work and life. My burnout was a combination of self-inflicted bad decisions, things done to me, and circumstances in my personal life. In this episode, I share the story of my own burnout and how I lost nearly everything. Through it all, I found what really matters in life - and work became a smaller part of it. I hope this episode encourages you to share your own struggles to get help. Maybe some of the things I learned after going through burnout can also encourage you to keep going.

In this podcast... we confront and smash the following myth: Myth: Rehabs are all work and no play.The point of rehab is to allow an addict/alcoholic to make a U-turn, to turn their life around to something approaching normalcy.Instead of a life tilted entirely to drinking and using, expending all their energy in pursuit of the high, now we seek a life that is balanced.First, however, they need to do the necessary work: to look at themselves honestly and start to think in a healthy manner.To attain a new way of thinking and behaving, treatment teaches them how to have fun without the need for alcohol or drugs, and learn how to achieve a healthy balance in their life.A healthy balance maintained over a lifetime is an end goal of treatment, but that can only be achieved by staying clean and sober one day at a time.

Cam tells it all about drug addiction, his biggest regrets during his career and how the Devils org forced him to grow up
In this podcast... we confront and smash the following myth: Myth: You are to blame for their addiction."You”, as the family member (say the mum), are as powerless over your loved one's addiction as they are themself. This concept is the hardest thing to accept.You have tried to control their behaviour, using every means at your disposal, from threats to pleading, and all your efforts have come to nothing.The evidence proves, therefore, that you are neither to blame for their addiction in the same sense that you have no ultimate control over it.Perhaps the best way that the truth is expressed is the saying that shows up on the walls of Al-Anon meeting rooms everywhere: " Didn't cause it, can't cure it, can't control it".It is not all surprising that the responsible family member will blame themself, not knowing they are actually powerless over the addiction, just like their loved one.
He was placed in the special education system. But, Christopher Zara's so-called “behavioral issues” continued so, he got kicked out of high school in the 11th grade. Zara still went on to get his GED and at 32 he found himself working at a picture frame shop. He didn't enjoy his job. Occasionally he reflected on the few teachers that told him he was a good writer. Those embers of encouragement were enough to spark a flame of hope and pushed him to pursue writing. Listen in as he talks about getting kicked out of high school, overcoming addiction, finding a book that helped him to get his career in journalism started. He shares insights on building a portfolio without a degree, and his early work experiences, his book 'Uneducated', and handling imposter syndrome.Timestamps:(0:00) Introduction to the episode and guest, Christopher Zara(4:43) The changing landscape of journalism and the shift towards independent journalism(6:06) Building a portfolio in journalism and salary ranges(10:29) Need resume help?(11:28) High school experience: Behavioral issues, getting kicked out and getting his GED(12:43) Embers of Encouragement from teachers: The reason Christopher believed he could write(13:39) After high school: Drugs, overcoming addiction and other work experiences(16:33) How an unpaid internship got him a foot in the door(18:44) Lessons from the first job(20:26) Learning about the online journalism industry and transitioning to larger organizations(27:44) Reflecting on career decisions and overcoming the 'imposter syndrome'(33:12) How the applicant tracking systems affected his job search because he didn't have a degree(34:51) Skills-based hiring is on the rise vs the strong branding of college(36:08) The purpose of Christopher's book 'Uneducated' and the importance of viewing education holisticallySupport/Contact Christopher:Linktree: https://linktr.ee/christopherzara LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/christopherzara/Books and resources mentioned in this podcast: Resume course: https://bit.ly/podcastpca Uneducated by Christophe4r Zara: https://amzn.to/46Jv515 Need career or resume advice?

In this podcast... we confront and smash the following myth:Myth: All an addict has to do is just say no.This myth goes back to the 1980s when Nancy Reagan launched her "Just Say No" campaign, and the phrase has lingered in the lexicon ever since.The idea that an active addict retains the power of choice is a misguided illusion.They are in the grip of a brain disorder, as defined by the National Institute of Drug Addiction (NIDA). They are compelled by their disorder to feed the addiction above all else.Even if they vow not to use - to say no - their being is overtaken by their disorder to the point where they are incapable of making the right decision for themself.Society and the media reinforce our prejudices where we judge an addict as weak when they are actually quite sick and in need of our help.Although saying no is a well-meaning sentiment, it is simply misguided when placed against the reality of a powerful disease.
Since our last conversation with Oregon Gov. Tina Kotek, Republicans lawmakers staged a historically long walkout, a state task force convened to address serious problems in Portland’s central city, and a coalition of prominent leaders have begun calling for an overhaul of Measure 110, Oregon's drug decriminalization law. We spent an hour in Salem with the governor to talk about all those things and more.

While I don't condone the wholesale legalization of every drug available, I do condone decriminalization and treatment. The US has begun to move in that direction, but it moves slowly and contrary to popular belief, not all people are created equal. Drug treatment isn't available to all. Marginalized communities, especially, people of color and the impoverished are left behind.

In this podcast, we answer the question... Be honest, do rehabs genuinely offer an aftercare service?There is a big difference between offering an aftercare service and actually having one in place that fully supports the person who has gone back home and is now faced with the challenge of dealing with the "real world".There isn't a single rehab that doesn't mention "aftercare" in their narrative.Some simply say something like: "And we offer the best aftercare program to help clients stay clean and sober", without giving away any details as to what their program entails.A few others will promise "24/7 access to counsellors" and other types of support.Clearly, these types of "programs" are well-meant, but they are incomplete.At SafeHouse Rehab, we don't kid ourselves into pretending that our job is done once a client goes back to his own hometown. We bring a measure of humility to our work when we say that our rehab is just the very first step on the path of recovery.We also bring an unwavering sense of responsibility to our clients to give them all the tools they need to stay clean and sober, to allow them to re-integrate into society as productive and positive citizens.We designed our We CareTM program to be the most robust and complete aftercare program anywhere. We reviewed what was out there and saw what was missing: a truly comprehensive approach to aftercare.That is why we created the We CareTM aftercare toolkit and contact resources that gives clients all they could possibly need to feel supported and cared for.It's what we owe our clients who seek a lifetime of clean and sober living.

PART 1I grew up with Age since kids, he wasn't my best friend he was more so a "Crimey" or a fellow scrambler. someone i would come across in the streets doing wrong. We had a mutual friend so i was always in-tune with what AGE and his crew of teen robbers was up to.Like myself Age is a hip-hop baby. He grew up along side the art form, the music and influence of 1990's rap groups like Wu-tang Clan, Mobb Deep and Capone & Noriega caused me and Age to get closer. Along the way he made some choices that would separate us, Age was just like me in his prime. This is his story
In this podcast, we answer the question... Is commitment to recovery a make-or-break deal after leaving treatment?By all means, yes.Those of us who have been practitioners of the principles of recovery pay attention to the wisdom expressed in the literature and read at the AA and NA meetings.A good example:"Some of us tried to hold onto our old ideas and the result was nil until we let go absolutely".The "old ideas" that this passage refers to is the absurd notion that an alcoholic can get and stay sober on their own willpower. What happens when the addict or alcoholic decides that they do not need NA or AA to stay sober?They abandon the commitment they made a while ago in treatment to go all the way. Every day. Including becoming a part of the Fellowship.This disease is so cunning, baffling, and powerful that it requires a higher power and the "we" fellowship to gain “a daily reprieve (that is) contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition".A full commitment means action, not lip service. A full commitment means that we go "all in", that we surrender our old ways of thinking and acting and adopt a new way of living.This is an all-or-nothing game. We get nothing unless we give everything.That is why AA meetings start with this promise:"Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path".If that is not about commitment, then what is?
We delve deep into the heart of the opioid crisis, focusing on the devastating impact of fentanyl. Our special guest, Melanie Yates, LMSW, a May 2023 graduate from the University of Maryland School of Social Work, shares her personal journey of loss and her relentless pursuit to make a difference. Melanie's efforts led to the passing of the Josh Siems Act, a groundbreaking legislation that mandates Maryland hospitals to test for fentanyl.
