Our Thinking Problem - w/ Dr. Robb Kelly

I am incredibly excited for you to listen to this episode. I was fortunate enough to be able to meet and speak with Dr. Robb Kelley, Founder and CEO of the Robb Kelly Recovery Group based in San Antonio Texas. He also has offices in Dallas, Zurich Switzerland and London in the UK. He has appeared on countless television and radio interviews, including an episode of daytime series, The Doctors on CBS (https://www.thedoctorstv.com/videos/supervised-heroin-facility). Dr. Kelly’s story of addiction is one of homelessness, loss of family and six suicide attempts. In a moment of his life, that he will describe later in the episode, Dr. Kelly had what I believe is a concrete interaction with God. This interaction and the promise he received from a mysterious gentleman named John has manifested into Dr. Kelly’s continued success in the recovery world. He has a 97% success rate helping alcoholics and addicts recover from their suffering and he even provides a money back guarantee, something you don’t see at all in the world of recovery. Dr. Kelly's Website and Social Media: Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/robbkellyrecovery/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/robbkellygroup Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/robbkellyrecoverygroup/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdUtraCU9VfMY7_MZLFhiAA/videos Website: https://www.robbkelly.com/ As always, please feel free to contact me at recoveryrisingpodcast@gmail.com and see more at my website https://www.recoveryrising.net Namaste --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

I'll drink tomorrow, not today w/ Mean Joel

In episode 18, I sit down with a musician friend of mine, Joel, to discuss his 6 years of sobriety. He shares that, even with plenty of time under his belt, he had a relapse moment. But the important point is he said, "If I still feel this way tomorrow, I will drink". Spoiler: He didn't drink. We rarely, if ever, feel the exact same way 'tomorrow' that we did today. If we keep pushing our relapse to 'tomorrow' then we will never drink. Tomorrow never comes, each moment you live in is TODAY. Enjoy this episode and if you would like to check out Joel's band, Remedy 58, follow this link to their site (https://www.remedy58.com/) Namaste --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
