Right Between Your Eyes

Great listen
if you think you drink too much. It’s filled with interesting stories, one liners that will smack you between your eyes, and a bit of humor to lesson the blows.

Goofy, not helpful

This is a funny piece. AA's will amaze their friends by memorizing some of the platitudes this guy reads. Otherwise, this did not enhance my sobriety except to make me smile and wince at some of the sayings.

Poor sound quality

The content is good, but the narration sounds like an AM talk radio program.

I couldn't finish it .

No memorable story or message - just quotes repeated. Very disappointing . Not helpful or inspiring in anyway.

Just go to a meeting-

don't die and you'll be an old-timer and know all these same stories. Would recommend specific stories over what read more like meeting notes.
