Recovery will be helped by listening

If you are serious about your own recovery or indeed a professional involved in addictions, this is well worth a listen. If your personal issues are around alcohol, this is the place to start. Bear in mind some the language is from 80 years ago and personally I really enjoyed this. The narrator is passionate and whilst the quality is not state of the art digital, I think this just adds to the listeners experience.

Great to be able to listen to the big book on audio

As a recovering addict and a dyslexic I found it difficult to get into the big book in its written format. Being able to listen to it has been really helpful for my recovery and the narrator did a great job of the bringing the stories in it to life. Simple concepts made simpler by clear narratives. I listened to this in the bath and whilst driving. Now I can listen to it again and again until it really sinks in. Although some of the original text it is quite old fashioned - it still talks about a god rather than a higher power and it focuses mostly on it being men who are alcoholics ( the 'for wives' chapter was particularly frustrating) - I tried hard to see past that and see the underlying concepts it talks about. It will really help me in my recovery.
