Do you have relationships that are hurting your efforts to sobriety? Over a cup of coffee, Glenn shares his catalyst to moving towards sobriety – starting by getting out of a strenuous relationship because he was trying to get sober on a foundation that shook.
Dr. Henry Cloud, in his book “Never Go Back: 10 Things You’ll Never Do Again” gives this advice: do the hard thing. When you recognize you’re in a situation where you’re back-and-forth, back-and-forth – do the hard thing and get out of that situation. Your life is going to suck for six months. But at the six month mark you’ll look back and say “my life is so much better”.

Mike and Glenn you guys are awesome. Never go back topic I just listened to on your podcast. Almost 2 months myself into AA and two months out of a 4 1/2 year relationship that was very similar to the one that Glenn was talking about in the podcast, breaking up and getting back together multiple times. I am working my way through some things in my life as we all are and the podcast was eye-opening and helpful, I will be purchasing Dr. clouds book soon. Thanks to you both.
