EPISODE 2 of my “CAL Chat” podcast is now available to listen to! Why is Al-Anon not considered a self-help recovery program? How is detaching different than separating? Am I making my spirit sick? It was such a good conversation, I didn’t want to edit anything out, so I had to break it into 2 parts. (To hear this episode, please visit the show’s website at: www.calchatpodcast.com – or you can subscribe to it for free on iTunes & Google Play Music as well & you’ll be notified every time a new episode is posted.)
In part 1 of 2 of Episode 2, BJ talks about her favorite reading, June 14th (pg 166), from the daily reader “One Day At A Time In Al-Anon” (item # B-6, B-14 for large print). She shares her definition of serenity & mentions other possible side effects from taking the medicine of recovery. A special “bonus material” hunt is involved with this particular page that I explain about in the show… Can you find it? Happy hunting!
Part 2 of 2 of Episode 2 continues the conversation with BJ and her favorite piece of outreach literature, the “Detachment” (item # S-19) leaflet. We discuss detaching with love, being able to separate the disease from the alcoholic, and how Al-Anon is not a self-help program, but a we program!
Wondering about what Episode 1 was about? (Hint: see my entry from last month about item # B-22/B-32!)
