Sober Pod - Step 10 - Reflection

Taking the time to reflect on our day can be hard at first. Carving out time to sit with our thoughts and reflect on the day or situations that we find ourselves is not always an easy habit to establish. Luckily, we have the twelve and twelve (it’s another book we read) that can help guide us to a more specific way to approach our tenth step work. Join us, won’t you?

Sober Pod - Step 7 - Shortcomings - Ellenisode!

Ellen starts off her minisode with a quote from the 12X12: “We saw we needn’t always be bludgeoned and beaten into humility.
