Recovery is recovery. It doesn’t matter your brand or your flavor, the result is the same; sobriety and a better quality of life. But why is Alcoholics Anonymous anonymous? And why do some people choose to recover out loud? And what are the pros and cons to both? Good questions. Let’s talk about it. 


This week’s topic is inspired by the warstory we received from Mike. Mike is CEO of Inspire 2 Inspire, a non-profit looking to help those who suffer with addiction. With over 60 days clean and a 20 years as a professional addict, Mike chooses to recover out loud so others can see that they can walk through the struggle together. To hear where he has come from and how he chooses to live today is one of the many reasons we’re honored to share his story on our platform. 


Keep at it Mike!
