I know that most of my readers read me for the writing on alcoholism, not on science or medicine, or meta-science and meta-medicine. I have a meta-science post brewing about the treatment of trainees after they have graduated/moved on, but this post isn’t about that. In fact, this is barely a post at all. As I wrote a few days ago, I was asked to speak last night at an AA meeting. I recorded my talk (but not, of course, anything anyone else said). It’s here. It’s just my story, told ramblingly and with many bits left out. I get emotional a couple of times, but I won’t apologize for it. It’s 22 and a half minutes. I hope you enjoy it.
