This week, we discuss the complicated, thorny and entirely unofficial “Step 13” in 12-step programs: the common phenomenon of long-timers preying romantically upon short-timers. It’s an episode about protecting yourself against vulnerability and recognizing whom to trust in recovery. With the help of our frequent guest Adam, we offer some solutions and strategies for navigating this minefield. We also share songs by Air Traffic Controller, little hurricane, Hellogoodbye, and Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross.
