@We Are Recovery Radio with Max Kirsten :: Episode 6 :: Relapse -- @z1radio @rustyrockets @max_kirstenWe Are Recovery Radio on Zone 1 Radio add
Max Kirsten presents Episode 6 of Recovery Radio - a show about addiction and recovery on Zone 1 Radio.
This week Max talks to his guest Julian Keeling about the challenges of coming back to recovery after a relapse.
Their story starts in London in the early 80s, when heroin was cheaper than to buy than hash and ubiquitous from West London dinner parties to so-called "elevensies" in the toilets at Lloyds of London.
Both Max and Julian met in recovery at an early age and then both went off the rails for a decade.
Here, they share the difficulties of returning to recovery after a period in the wilderness, particularly the fact that it's never quite as easy the second time around.
But ultimately Max and Julian agree that if there is anything to be salvaged from their relapses, it's that it puts them in a position to be able to help other relapsed addicts return to the recovery fold.
We Are Recovery Radio with Mark Dempster :: Episode 5 :: Spirituality -- @mdcounselling @rustyrockets @z1radioWe Are Recovery Radio on Zone 1 Radio add
Mark Dempster presents We Are Recovery Radio - a show on addiction and recovery - on Zone 1 Radio.
This week Mark leads a discussion on the spiritual side of recovery
Acknowledging the existence of a higher power - be it religious or otherwise - is an essential part of any 12-step recovery programme.
But it can put a lot of people off.
Mark and guests Trevor Morley and Chip Somers discuss the spiritual elements of recovery; demystifying the notion of the higher power and debunking some myths as they go.
We Are Recovery Radio with Russell Brand :: Episode 4 :: 12 Steps - @z1radio @rustyrocketsWe Are Recovery Radio on Zone 1 Radio add
Russell Brand presents We Are Recovery Radio , a show about addiction, dependency and recovery on Zone 1 Radio.
This week Russell (14 years clean) talks to Tosca (21 years clean), Steve (10 years sober) and Natasha (clean for 1,605 days) about what the idea of recovery means to them and their experiences of the 12 step process.
Russell and his guests talk about their time as addicts and, as always, the show lurches from "humorous" to "harrowing"
Along the way we find ourselves under the stage at Wembley Stadium during Live Aid, hitching a ride on the number 44 bus and at Steve's daughter's wedding - which he says was "like all the jackpots coming at once."
The show touches on the gallows humour that is an essential part of the recovery process - with Steve and Russell bemoaning the fact that "outdoor lager" isn't as strong as it used to be - but at its heart this show is about recovery, the twelve step process and the fact that there is hope and help for anyone struggling with addiction if they're prepared to accept it.
