That Sober Guy Podcast


My name is Shane Ramer. As long as I was high I didn't have to feel. Drugs took the pain away, and to be honest, I liked being high. I thought I was cool. I even had a nickname, 'Cocaine Shane'. I'm a regular dude from the suburbs in Northern California. After 17 years of struggling with drugs and alcohol, for the first time in my life I took a stand for something. I didn't care what anyone would say. I didn't care what anyone would think. I went to rehab and got sober September 11th, 2013. Now I talk to people about addiction, alcoholism, recovery, and more. If I can do it, you can do it too. Check us out at www.ThatSoberGuy.com

Today we are going to dive into a conversation with Shane’s friend, mentor and Sponsor Buddy C. about working the steps and why having a sponsor or an accountability partner is a must. 

 

In this episode we discuss:

 

  • Step 11 - “Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood him, praying only for knowledge of his will for us and the power to carry that out”

 

  • How do you increase contact with God?

 

  • What do you do when your ass is on fire?

 

  • Responsive Obiedience

 

  • Powerlessness in finding a sponsor

 

 

  • The difference between church and a relationship with God
