Episode 1516: Paul Henry / The Alcoholic's Guide to Alcoholism

Playing tracks by

Beastie Boys and Dj Fm, Alycin Packard.

"Paul" is a recovering alcoholic, currently following a PhD into the neuromechanisms of addictive behaviours. His own experience of recovery, coupled with his research over several years, led him to question why the way addicts and alcoholics talk about their condition as an “emotional disease” is rarely addressed in theories of addiction.

Chris jacked into the Trans-Atlantic Interweb to chat with this fascinating Irishman about recovery, AA, emotional disregulation, the acceptance of prescribed medication in sobriety, and much more.

You may want to listen to this one more than once.
