Today Nicole and I talked about names in our latest podcast. I have always wanted to not called “Tammie” because it makes me think of a cigarette smoking redneck hollering at her kids to “come get their damn supper” or some such nonsense. She got the good name all right. We then talked about the label “alcoholic” and the stigma that comes along with that name. We decided that we’re fine with being alcoholics in recovery because without our quite colorful pasts we couldn’t be who we are today.
