Today's episode opens with a special message for first responders, military personnel, and those who suffer from PTSD.
Daniel Mills, who has worked in firefighting and EMS for 15 years, talks about his struggle with drug and alcohol addiction, and how many 911 responders deal with bad addiction issues. He finally found sobriety, but was afraid to speak about it until he began listening to Sober Guy Radio. Now he feels inspired to help others facing traumatic, high-stress jobs. If you work in this type of environment, feel free to contact Daniel Mills at firstname.lastname@example.org and connect on Facebook at 911 Buddy Check.
