More Episodes

Alan is joined by his friend Dr. Brett Kessler to have a VERY frank talk about how people make changes in their lives. Both of them are in long term recovery from drugs and alcohol which gives them an interesting perspective on how people make behavior changes in their life. Some of the topics we discuss are:

  • The "time machine" game and how our past experiences are formative
  • How do recovering people deal with social situations where people are drinking?
  • Dentists suffered during COVID because so much was out of their control
  • How do people make positive changes in their behavior?
  • Running sucks
  • Counting streaks
  • Results don't come fast enough to drive early motivation...so how do we maintain motivation?
  • Did fear of COVID change Al's behavior?
  • How much dental disease is preventable by behavior change (home care, diet, smoking, etc.)?
  • Is behavior change a simple matter of education? (spoiler: hell no!)
  • Consequences can drive behavior change. But they don't always.
