"It doesn't matter if you're not sleeping on a park (bench)…or not driving your kids to school with vodka in your coffee mug…or whatever is your 'I haven't done this, yet.' None of that matters." — Jean on SRN
Jean Greer McCarthy is creator of the wildly-popular, recovery blog, Unpickled; a cohost of recovery podcast, The Bubble Hour; and a monthly columnist for addiction.com.
Sober since 2011, Jean lives a very active life in Alberta Canada.
Once again, Chris ignored the common wisdom to "never meet your idols and/or never podcast with your influences" and asked Jean to join us. She graciously accepted.
I would also like to note that Jean authored the beautifully powerful sentiment that I have used to guide me as I participate in the #RecoveryFriendlyWeb:
Resist the urge to be entertained and instead let yourself be moved. Something beautiful has been happening here. Maybe it’s time you knew. —Jean / Unpicked
