15: Addiction Recovery with Tommy Rosen

00:00 / 58:55

Tommy Rosen is the founder of the Recovery Online 2.0 Conference, as well as the book and podcast of the same name. Twenty-seven years sober, Rosen has dedicated much of his life helping people suffering from a wide range of addictions—alcohol, opioids, food, sex, pornography—overcome habitual patterns and live rich, meaningful lives. During our chat we discuss the nature of pattern formation, the cue/routine/reward system, overcoming addiction through practices like yoga, the role of abstinence and psychedelics in recovery, and Rosen’s favorite subject, the Grateful Dead.
