I first encountered the work of Peg O’Connor when she wrote this article in The New York Times back in January. She’s also been interviewed in The Huffington Post, as well as authoring some books.
At the time I saw the article, I had quit drinking about six months prior — so I connected with her, and we had this interview about addiction, philosophy, quitting drinking (she did 24 years ago), programs for youth (like the “On Guard” program they run at Gustavus), and more. It’s a pretty interesting, overall very deep 25-minute discussion. I encourage you to give it a try.
