Step 4 FSOTS - Mark H and Dave F.

2007-08-05 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 48! It's been a while again, no real excuses other then the fact of not making a great transition back between school and work, but as the job hunt continues and I've learned to work my program better in the midst of the chaos that occurs in normal life and I'm hoping to get a better, more sober lifestyle down instead of simply living more as a dry drunk. So this week we have part 2 of a talk from past in the podcast, (Steps 3 and 4 by Mark and Dave) which I think gave me more insight on how to work step 4 in my own life and how best to do step 4 when I work with others. So I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I have! As always this mp3 came from www.xa-speakers.org so check them out!…

Alano Iceland 2004 - David K

2007-06-14 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

And....were back! Sorry for the over two month delay but I am finally getting ready to graduate and after a hellish quarter of school and internship, I finally have time to pick back up all the things that are much better for me to do! So hopefully I'll be back on track with posting mp3's weekly, not only for everyone out their, but also for my own sobriety. So this week we have David K, and I haven't listened to this in a long time but thought it worthy of a five star rating in iTunes a while back, so enjoy! As always this mp3 came from www.xa-speakers.org and you can feel free to email me at 12steppodcast@gmail.com as I'm going to start actually checking it again :).…

Welcome to week 45! This week David C. speaks about his experience of the 12 Step program and gives some valuable insights as to what working the program has meant to him and some challenging thoughts as to what each of our programs should be. He is British which adds some diversity to the past few episodes and also gives both a different perspective of the 12 Step program and at the same time, the same one that many of us hold. So I hope you enjoy it as well as I have! As always this mp3 came from www.xa-speakers.org and you can feel free to email me with questions, comments or concerns at 12steppodcast@gmail.com!…

Welcome to week 44! I apologize for the tardiness of the release this week, but my internet decided to not play nice so I spent two days trying to fix it. This week we have Gary B. speaking on his experience with the 12 step program and while this mp3 is short, it has some really good stories that we can both learn from and help us to recognize that above all it is God that leads us in our program. For we must recognize this to be able to walk in better sobriety each day. So I hope you enjoy!

Sponsorship - Dave P. and Polly P.

2007-03-03 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 42! Thanks to all who emailed me about my grandfathers death, it is good to know the support of a fellowship, both at my home group and also even with those I have never met before. So I would encourage you all to continue to spread support among one another and those you interact with in your own home groups. On that general topic of support, this weeks mp3 is on Sponsorship. I realized I have never posted anything on the topic and thought it to be important as I forget that not everyone thinks that's an important thing to do. But as Dave P and Polly P talk about, sponsorship is essential to our sobriety and our continued sobriety. So whether you don't have a sponsor, are being sponsored or are a sponsor yourself, you will be able to take something good away from this mp3. As always feels free to email me at 12steppodcast@gmail.com and this mp3 came from www.xa-speakers.org so check them out!…

Story - Tom N.

2007-02-23 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 41! This last week I didn't manage to get a file posted as my Grandfather passed away, and so this last week I've been trying to remember to care for myself. But today I listed to Tom N.'s story which was really great as he shared about his experience with the 12 steps, and reminds me, and I hope us, that we can be in the program and be sober and still suffer from our addictions. For this program is truly about a spiritual experience with God, not simply doing some work to get sober. We cannot get true sobriety until we connect with God, but so often that is missed. So I hope you will find this encouraging and will help you to seek out God. This weeks mp3 came from www.xa-speakers.org so check them out and feel free to email me at 12steppodcast@gmail.com!…

Welcome to week 38! This week we have Peter M. speaking about the last three steps of the twelve step program of recovery. He tells us how essential it is for us to work the last steps, to stay current in our inventories and to continue to pursue a way of living which is connected to our God.

Step 6, 7, 8 and 9 - Dennis R. - Carry This Message

2007-01-12 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 36! Sorry for this week being a day late, but I'm still figuring out new life being married and that has been making a new routine hard to find. This week we have Dennis R. talking at a Carry this Message time about the 6th through 9th steps. He speaks about his own imperfection and struggles which I think can help us to identify what we need to walk through so that we can walk in sobriety one day at a time. He isn't shy about identifying his own weakness which helped me to understand better my own. But best of all he says something I think we maybe have heard before but all need to hear again, "You can't think your way into right living, you have to live your way into right thinking." So I hope this helps all of you as much as it's helped me! As always feel free to email me at 12steppodcast@gmail.com and I hopefully will get to some of the websites that have been recommend to me soon!

Step 5 - Joe And Charlie

2006-12-28 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 34! Sorry for no posts the last couple of weeks, but in the state I reside, there was a power outage along with the fact that I got married a little over a week ago, so I've been a bit busy and life just took over for a couple of weeks. But since there aren't any more life changing events hopefully happening in the next few weeks, and the power will stay on, we should be back on track. I am only posting a short reflection tonight by Joe and Charlie on the 5th Step, but I hope either tomorrow or the next day to post at least one more mp3 to catch up on material and to get some for those of you who may have been wanting more :). So I hope you enjoy this short audio from Joe and Charlie! As always you can feel free to email me at 12steppodcast@gmail.com and this mp3 came from www.xa-speakers.org so check them out!…

Catchup Post

2006-12-26 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

So I have to apologize for the past couple of weeks not posting on the podcast. I reside in Washington State and we lost power which made it a bit hard to post on the 14th, however simultaneously I was trying to finish up any details for my wedding that was on the 16th (which was made even more fun by the power outages). Of course then last week I was on my honeymoon but I hope to post before Thursday and then also on Thursday if everything gets finished as it should and then the posts will be back on the normal schedule. So thanks so much for your patience as my life settles down a little bit!…

Carry This Message - Steps 3, 4 and 5 - Dennis R.

2006-12-07 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 33! This week we have Dennis R speaking about steps three, four and five and talking to us both about his own willingness to do whatever it takes and what we in our own programs may have to think about in our own willingness. It is a good reminder that at all times we need to be willing and allow God to work through us instead of trying either to take God's place, or if we've been in the program for a while, take back God's place. So I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have! As always, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions feel free to email me at 12steppodcast@gmail.com!

Welcome to week 32! This week we have Mart H. and Dave H. talking about steps 2 and 3, what it means for us to really surrender to God and to live out the second and third steps not only in the area of our addiction but in all of our lives.

Welcome to week 31! Sorry for it being late this week, but I managed to get back form thanksgiving without listening to any new mp3's and the yesterday I finished a book I was writing for a write a novel in a month project. But this week we have Johnnie H. talking about Steps 1, 2 and 3. Even though I worked these steps a while back, he really emphasizes what the first three steps are about, admitting our own powerlessness, surrendering our will to God's and walking in the knowledge of that. Even though I've been sober for a while, it truly reminded me of why the first three steps are so important my life as the foundation of me walking in sobriety.

How It Works - Joe And Charlie

2006-11-16 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 30! This week I tried to find some new material for steps 1, 2 and 3 but failed in doing so, and since mp3's take a while to listen through I decided to go back to some more of what Joe and Charlie say about the beginning of the 12 step program. I think their insights are so critical to understanding what this program of action is, and as the title says, how it works. So if you haven't heard this mp3 before you are in for a treat, and if you have may it help you as much as me to grow in our sobriety! As always, if you have any comments, questions, concerns or anything you would like to see in the podcast, email me at 12steppodcast@gmail.com!

Doctor's Opinon - Joe and Charlie

2006-11-10 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 29! I have to apologize for this week coming out a little bit later, I usually make sure I have the podcast posted by 11:30pm on Thursday (PST), but as there have been a few major life events going on for me I didn't plan ahead enough to get it posted till this morning :). This week's mp3 is classic audio from Joe and Charlie walking through the doctor's opinion section of the AA Big Book. They talk about how our addictions are an allergy, something that we have a physical reaction to. But this is a good basis for us understanding our own addictions either for the first time or being reminded of the basis of our addictions. As always, thank you for your encouraging emails, it helps me to be encouraged myself :) and if you have any questions, comments, suggestions or concerns about the podcast feel free to email me at 12steppodcast@gmail.com!

Welcome to week 28! This week we have Hector walking us through the first three steps, giving us some background on the Big Book and walking us through what it means to really work the first three steps. It seems to be a good time to start going through the whole 12 step program again, so over the next few weeks I will be posting different mp3's which help us as we walk through the 12 steps. Once again, thanks for your emails and I'm glad that there are many of us who are encouraged by this podcast, for it helps me keep sober too :).

Primary Purpose - Chris R.

2006-10-26 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 27! This week we have Chris R. and Peter M. reminding us of the primary purpose of A.A. Why we do what we do, and why we are addicts. He tells us to think about what our primary purpose is, why either we may be struggling with sobriety or those around us are struggling with sobriety. We need to work the program for what it is instead of looking for other answers. While it's not easy to hear, I think it's essential for our sobriety to both learn and remember that we need to work our program and we need God to truly work our program. As always this mp3 came from www.xa-speakers.org and if you have any comments, questions, concerns you can email me at 12steppodcast@gmail.com!…

Relationships - Keith L.

2006-10-19 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 26! Funily enough, today when I a posting this there is 260 subscribers who checked the podcast yesterday, which would mean there has been around 10 people a week who have found out about this podcast for the past 26 weeks! However the message has spread even farther then that as there are over 500 downloads each week of this podcast! So thanks so much after half a year for all of the support, as you help me to stay in 12 step material and to keep carrying the message to others. Also, I had been asked this last week if I am planning on stopping the podcast at any point, and the answer is I plan to continue this for as long as God is not leading me to something else, and I don't see that happening anytime in the future :). This weeks mp3 is speaker Keith L. who talks about relationships and addicts. Keith talks about how our we as addicts tend to view our relationships with others and how we have treated others and continue to treat them. It's a great listen for anyone at any point they find themselves in their sobriety!

A New Pair Of Glasses - Part 2 - Chuck C.

2006-10-12 :: 12steppodcast@gmail.com (12 Step Podcast)

Welcome to week 25! I hope that the podcast is okay for everyone as this last week I had one day where the stats were waaaay down on subscribers, so I wanted to say if there are issues with the podcast, let me know at 12steppodcast@gmail.com. And I have to apologize for being a bit late on posting the podcasts lately, as I've been keeping very busy so I haven't always got to posting until the evening. So now that I've rationalized away my responsibility ;) thanks for listening this week, and I hope you'll enjoy Chuck C. talking about the 12 Steps. He walks through the different steps, reminding us that the program isn't complicated, it just needs to be worked. Instead of making excuses or trying to make things complicated, we need to simply see the steps for what they are, and follow them as a plan of action instead of a plan of intentions. I hope you enjoy this weeks audio! …
