Special Father’s Day Speaker Meeting With Frank F. – It’s A Family Disease

The heart of every show is our guests and their recovery stories.  Everyone who participates on the show is a volunteer, whose willingness to honestly share their experience, strength, and hope helps keeps us all sober. 

In honor of Father’s Day, Co-Host Amanda’s father, Frank, who is also in recovery, joined us on the show. Frank shares his own story and talks about what it was like for him to see his daughter showing signs that she was headed down the same path.

It is often said that alcoholism is a family disease. In this case, that certainly seems to be true, but this is proof that families can and do recover together.

Sober In The Summer

Summer is an amazing time to be sober and fully present in our lives.  However, for many people - especially those in early recovery - summertime can be full of triggers.  Cook-outs, beaches and fun with friends can still be a ton of fun, but it is best to be prepared so you can enjoy yourself AND stay sober! 

On this episode all four co-hosts will share their experiences with summertime triggers and what we do to stay sober in the summer AND have a great time!

On Isolation - Interview with Andrea Owen from "Your Kick Ass Life"


Do you find yourself mistaking isolation for strength? This is a common pattern among people in active addiction and the habit can persist into recovery. There is a saying in recovery rooms which states, “Addiction is the only disease that tells you that you are alright.”, so when we isolate, we are putting our recovery at risk.

On this episode of The Bubble Hour we discuss the issue of isolation with Andrea Owen, certified life coach and author of “52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life”.

Meet the Creators of "I Am Not Anonymous"

Did you know that there are over 23 million people in recovery in the US alone?  Organizations like "I Am Not Anonymous" are working to break the stigma of addiction, and share peoples' stories of recovery to help others who are suffering and feel they are alone.

From the "I Am Not Anonymous" website: 

"For years, those suffering from addiction have done so in silence as a result of the negative stigma surrounding it. The truth is, people DO recover. Our mission is to bring the SOLUTION into the conversation in hopes of helping the millions of people who remain untreated and help the world understand that addiction is not a moral failing. It is a powerful disease and the stigma associated with it is just as deadly as the disease itself."

On this show we are so excited to welcome the Creators of "I Am Not Anonymous", Tom and Kate.  Through the power of story and photography, Tom and Kate are at the forefront of the ever-increasing movement to break down the stigma of addiction. We will talk to them about their own journeys in recovery (Tom) and loving sommeone in recovery (Kate), as well as learn more about the project and the impact it is having on the stigma of addiction.
