Second Chance – Working with and Supporting Addiction
We cover a lot of ground in this episode that will open your eyes to addiction including the way out, living life without, the law of exposure, the reward system, opioids, alcohol and other addictions and the signs of relapse.
The panel: Matt Fanslow, Eric Ziegler, Rob Rowsell, and Tanner Brandt. Here is a myth: People who struggle with addition come from a bad or broken home and have no support. And here is some truth: Until an addict says ‘Done’ no one can help them. Your heart may say you are done but your actions must demonstrate it.
At least one-third of you have a life’s experience with addiction or have a close friend, family or significant other who is struggling. Use this episode to help in your desire to help yourself or someone you love with addiction.

Next Fall, when you see geese heading south for the winter, flying along in a V formation, you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way. As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following it. By flying in a V formation, the whole flock adds as least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own. People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily, because they are traveling on the thrusts of one another.
When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone. It quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front of it. If we have as much sense as a goose we will stay in formation with those who are headed the same way we are.
When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point. It pays to take turns doing hard jobs.
Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed. An encouraging word goes a long way.
Finally, when a goose gets sick, or is wounded by gunshots and falls out, two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it down to help and protect it. They stay until the fallen goose until it is able to fly or until it dies, and only then do they launch out on their own or with another formation to catch up with their group. If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other like that.
