TMWT Episode 012: Addiction Part 2 – A Story

Welcome to Thoughtful Mind with Tzvi: Personal Growth, Mental Health, and Interesting Ideas. We're a podcast where we explore ways we can heal from the past, grow in positivity in the future, and find some food for thought along the journey.

In this week' episode, we find life lessons in the amazing story of Alcoholics Anonymous. We learn about spreading good when you're down and out, the reaches of your positivity, and hear an engaging story to boot.

““To me these occurrences are Phenomena. They appear to be in the nature of huge emotional displacements and rearrangements. Ideas, emotions, and attitudes which were once the guiding forces of the lives of these men are suddenly cast to one side, and a completely new set of conceptions and motives begin to dominate them.” - Dr. Carl Jung
