In episode 27 of the Semi-Interactive Podcast, I was joined by Nigel as we talked about recovery, sobriety, and many more topics, as you can see by the Show Notes.

For both of us, sobriety is a big factor in our lives. We try our best to be sober and also to practice the act of recovery, which is recovering from events we either caused or didn’t cause. It’s a tough path to travel, but we try our best to stay physically sober and practice the mental and emotional actions of recovery so we can be the best versions of ourselves we can be. This podcast, then, was us discussing how we keep things in check.

Content Warning:
We talk at length about alcoholism, sobriety, addiction, recovery, and some aspects of healthcare. Outside of that? Small In Possibility

Spoilers:
EarthBound – minor elements about some of the early bosses, but with advance notice

Special Thanks:
All the Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous groups and folks that have helped us and helped out others along the way.

General, Legal, Podcast Note: All opinions expressed are the sole opinion of the person expressing the opinion. If a speaker reads a quote, that does not automatically imply agreement. Chat messages shown on-screen do not imply endorsement of the opinion by the broadcaster or guests/hosts [“g’hosts”]. There may be times where one speaker states an opinion that another speaker, or other speakers, may disagree with – but do not feel comfortable with publicly disagreeing. Opinions can change. The Semi-Interactive Podcast’s foundation is on being reasonable with assessments, minus situations expressing hatred toward self or others.
