so being sober is often compared to running a marathon, and then maybe a relapse isn't such a big deal. For example, if you trip while running a marathon, then you just get up and keep going, right? You don't have to go back home and start again, counting on day 1 ...
well, what if being sober is MORE like being in a space ship? haha. I know you can’t picture it but I promise it makes sense in the audio. and as you can imagine, mistakes in space ships can have huge consequences.
in this podcast I also talk (a lot) about the idea of data points. and what do we learn when we relapse? ‘is a relapse a data point as in it’s something we can learn from?’
The quote where I make myself laugh?
“Every Crack is a Doorway, to our wolfie voice.”
