Oftentimes when we get sober, it feels so good that we can get in the mindset of trying to save everyone! While our intentions are good, it’s not often the best approach to just start berating everyone we see with a drink in their hands. But there is a way to spread the message that truly can help those in need. In fact, it's vitally important that we do this. 

 

This week we’re joined by L.T. Weaver, founder of Recovering Addict to talk about spreading the message. LT is no stranger to this concept. As you will hear in his warstory, he’s no stranger to the dark abyss of addiction either. L.T. always had a work hard, play harder mentality that had a negative impact on those around him. Luckily, today he has applied that work ethic to helping others and has a non-profit organization that’s doing just that.
