HIS SHARE HAS GREATLY CONTRIBUTED TO MY SOBRENITY THANKS. ED E VA.
Last August I was sitting in my truck at the river here in Humboldt County and looking at the Redwoods for what I thought would be the last time. I had a gun on my lap and had lost all faith in myself and the program after struggling in the problem for the last 7 years. There seemed like nothing else to do but end it all. I remember looking for a Mettalica CD and instead I came across a CD that a man had given to me at my home group when I was struggling. I put the CD the man had given me on instead and it was this one. I truly believe that God gives us what we need right when we need it. I think everyone should hear this talk, it is indeed a Lifesaver. Thank you Earl, and all members of the Program of Alcoholics Anonymous. I owe my life to all of you and God. "I" just received a 90 day chip, but most importantly a new way to live life.-BJ-Humboldt County,CA
Earl H. - WILL YOU MARRY ME????? -Lois A. (Penngrove, CA)
i have never heard such a hilarious enactment of the newcomer's experience at meetings! This guy is energetic about everything and does a good job explaining why he chooses AA vs. Na even though he experienced both. - Jennifer R. - Corona, CA
It was so easy to listen to him. INCREDIBLE.
I have managed to download a few Earl H talks, just the best. I burn to cd and give them out at meeting, especially to those who think their life is harder than anyone elses! Would love to get hold of more, any ideas? Please e-mail me email@example.com
Excellent speaker. I've recommended him via Email to all the AA's on my list.

My oh my what can i say. Earl is by far my favorite speaker for years. Makes you cry, laugh, and carries the message of AA so touching. Highly recommend him.
Earl, you are amazing. I love that you made me laugh and shocked me and then made me cry. You have such a wonderful story of hope and I think I won't be the same since listening to you. You are AMAZING and my favorite speaker ever!
this guy is down to earth and keeps it real buy being himself.helps me to keep it in perspective

Excellent re-telling of Earl's story. He is a treat, a delight and a treasure. and along with the old days, he has a tremendous message of RECOVERY! i saw the note from the other guy about 'he's saved my bacon more than once' , and i know that's happened for me and others i know too. I hope that you will listen and connect with him as i have... "and though perhaps you came to scoff, you may remain to pray". God bless us all.
I use Earl H. in my intensive outpatient groups. The clients are always blown away by his story. He is truly an inspiration.
I was sitting in a hotel room in Japan feeling sorry for myself, out of answers again. I listened to the tape and now, with a tear of joy in my eye, I'm filled with inspiration and gratitude. You got me out of myself and back into the world. Thank you, man. I want what you have. Scott, Houston
Earl H has saved my bacon on many occasion. John.London

Great Job at Salt City Roundup 2009 EARL!
Thank you Earl for sharing about other mood altering substances in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous. I need people like you. I was dying with an illness and some members objected to me sharing about my experiences with other substances.They nearly drove me out the door. 21rst June 2004 I came back to my second meeting 7 years after my first and by the grace of God I have been abstinent since after a member gave me your share tape. God bless you my friends.Whats the difference between Bill and Bob using valium to the younger members of AA using other substances. Who wants to die drunk?
Feeling the "buzz". Brad H. Windsor, Ontario.
Earl has the most incredible story I've ever heard in my life. Its truly amazing and its what I look to and think of in my day to day life when I feel like times are getting hard with my recovery. If this guy did it, anyone can!
Love earl h.
He puts the very real message of recovery in his story along with the laughter, love and hope that speaks directly to my heart.
At 13 years sober, I had just had the most horrific experience of my life and was struggling to stay safe & sane... To keep the noise in my head quite, any time I was in my car for more than 30 minutes, I listened to a speaker tape- to the sound of reason. Someone gave me Earl's tape. I was driving along trying not to cry, popped the tape in and he made me laugh. Then he started to talk about the experience that separated him from God & everyone and then he made the statement "PTSD was going to annihilate my ability to function in society..." I had to pull over, it hit me so hard... yet here he was years later sober & happy & helpful and I KNEW I would be ok!! Knew it, like I know I’ll be female tomorrow and that God does provide, she talks in any voice I can hear and speaks to my soul… Namaste Earl.
earls cd saved my life
I heard Earl the first time when I was celebrating my one-year anniversary. I was so insanely uncomfortable that I decided to pick one person to hate in this big fancy meeting I'd never been to before, which I figured would allow me to at least tolerate everyone else. I picked this well-groomed, really happy guy to focus my hate-beam on. Then of course he was the speaker. Then he was Earl H. Then my tiny mind was blown. (Which has continued to this day 11+ years later.) Plus, dozens of times after that, when I'd be driving in my car and fuming furiously about some injustice perpetrated against me by the universe, what would happen? ... Suddenly, there would be that Earl guy... in his car... going the other way... just going about his life... oblivious to the fact that I just got reminded AGAIN about humility... whoo. Since I left CA, no Earl sightings, but it's awesome to be able to hear him on this site. I would've drank with Earl for sure, but I think the world is better off with us both sober.

This is one speaker tape I can just play and put on repeat... great lead! Earl has been through some tremendous experiences. He LIVES the program, insists on enjoying life, and is grateful for the gifts the program has given to him. He conveys his message with a great sense of humor.
5 Stars without a doubt. Thank you Earl!
Clint, Lafayette, Indiana
