Alcoholics Guide to Alcoholism Podcast – Unmanageability

Melody Beattie is one of America’s most beloved self-help authors and a household name in addiction and recovery circles. She’s back with host Todd Weaver to share her life experience and her ageless wisdom.
Here I am being interviewed at length by Chris Aguirre on his excellent Since Right Now podcast about my theories of addiction, and other research, my experience of addiction and recovery and how academic and so-called anecdotal or “experiential” evidence have been combined to shape my world view regarding what I believe is at the heart, the pathomechansim, of addictive behaviour and also what recovers in recovery and why?
