Our new guest blogger, the 12-Step Traveller, is a former patient at Broadway Lodge. In recovery, he has found he can enjoy his busy international career free from the shackles of alcohol, and he shares his experience, strength and hope on our blog from time to time as he journeys around the world, putting his inner journey of recovery first at all times.
