Podcasts help to support sobriety recovery.
It was not that long ago that the newcomer in recovery who just recently quit drinking or taking drugs had to tough it out alone through the night. If you were getting clean and sober in the old days, you could go to 12-step meetings all day, call your sponsor and support network friends, and even go to dinner or coffee with them after a late night meeting. However, at some point, you would have to go home and try to get some sleep. While your sponsor may have told you to call anytime 24/7, you don’t always feel right making those phone calls just because you feel a little uncomfortable being along in the late night, unable to sleep. Fortunately, we now have an abundance of support online. Sobriety podcasts are an important link in the chain of support that is in place to keep you safe.
