In this episode, Sean and I discuss a common misconception that we face with challenges in life that hurt like addiction. Our human response to pain is that we want it to stop and go away. In addiction and in recovery from addiction we experience pain, and over and over we've said it ourselves and heard others lament "I just want this to go away."
Matt Soren is the front man for the principle based rock band The One Tonic. He performs for private events, addiction rehabs, and only the most fortunate organizations. Having suffered from the consequences of 20 years of addiction and abuse as a child, he now shares the key principles to make sure life only keeps getting better, no matter what you get hit with. He's now happily married with 6 kids though according to them, he's still a few fries short of a happy meal.
