One thought on “I didn’t get sober for this shit – Episode 212”

  1. Hello, I am writing to reach out to Cynthia (episode 212) that asked about parents of children that are in recovery.
    My 16 year old daughter entered a 12 step program 21 months ago. We were so lucky to find an ‘enthusiastic sobriety’ program that focuses on teen/young adults and their parents.
    The program is very focused on AA Al-anon and asks the parents to really focus on themselves and not their child. Which is a very hard balance with any underage child, especially one abusing drugs and alcohol. Without the parent support group we would have never made it through this last 2 years.
    I have tried Al-anon meetings, but my parent support group is what I need right now.
    Cynthia, my heart goes out to you.
    Spencer, your show is great, and the topics are perfect for those living with an addict…. parent/spouse/etc. Thank you for the hope and love your show provides.
