#62 - 27 Sayings That People Who Get Sober Are Astonished By (Part 1)

In the recovery world, it is often said that the first drink gets you drunk. This means that once someone with trouble dealing with alcohol or drugs takes that first one, they are unable to stop. This is because addiction is an illness, and the first drink sets off a chain of events that the person cannot control. This is just one of the concepts people in early recovery need to grasp. 


For today’s episode, Chris and Danny discuss 27 sayings that people who get sober are astonished by. They talk about how these sayings can be impactful and helpful for people in recovery, and how they can also be helpful for families of loved ones with addiction.


The conversation discusses the various things that people in recovery hear that are helpful to them. These things can give insights into what is going on in the mind of a loved one struggling with addiction. The conversation also points out that addiction does not have to define a person.
