Becca The Unashamed Alcoholic Addiction, Recovery and Busin

So I wish I came to work often not noticing that even though it was right there. I first first time we’re talking I’m going to tell I get that, like, I don’t drink. Sometimes I go to AAA and I have a podcast where I’m very open about it. It’s kind of like half of my life is, is talking about my alcoholism. So felt like, also if this is going to bother you, like, I’m not going to waste any time.

For my friends who spent their personal time reading, editing and discussing this project with me; Dana, Jeff K., Beth, Dr. Modell. I especially must thank my dear friend Jhennifer. That crazy red-haired woman pushed me so hard to write this. I never would have finished had it not been for her.

Self-Made & Sober

After I had accumulated over $1,000—in less than 4 months—I transferred that into a Mutual Fund. I continue to deposit $300 a month into that fund ($10 a day).

  • They even have a relatable approach to discussing the not-so-fun aspects of sobriety.
  • But like, no, no one ever was so supportive.
  • Alcohol made me feel like I was going crazy.
  • So you’ve tweeted a fair bit about this.
  • I just went to a drove to Connecticut in December with my dad to see them two nights in a row.

I can’t live like this anymore. The point is, nothing replaces alcohol. I’ve been chasing it ever since.

Take a Break From Drinking

Recovery Elevator emphasizes overcoming difficult parts of sobriety while also making room for the useful tips to help with daily life. Each week, I’ll bring you tools, lessons and conversations to help you drink less and live more. No matter how much your friends and family love you and support you – they don’t know how you feel in this process. In this podcast I present more questions than answers. The idea behind being “anonymous” is to allow a person to be open and honest without embarrassment or public exposure. However, anonymity can also lead to dishonesty and poor behavior.

  • We’ve just seen each other on Twitter.
  • When dealing with a chemical imbalance, however, that can only go so far.
  • All I have done is organized and restated complicated thoughts with uncomplicated words.
  • If you don’t pour alcohol into your own mouth you can’t get drunk.
  • At the opposite end of the spectrum, when the “high” kicks in, her brain is bombarded with thoughts so fast and furious that she can’t write them down as quickly as they come.
  • Annie Grace answers this reader’s question by explaining the impact stress can have on our minds.

Shane – My last drink was on Christmas day . These past 3 days have been tough. I’ve been doing a lot of sweating. Because today is the best chance I have at staying sober. My addiction told me that I didn’t need to do the rehab work since I have been sober for over 2 years. When I was arrested and had to see my family’s faces the next day.

Thanks For Letting Me Share

So this podcast is my dream come true! It’s a way to participate in a book club without the added pressure of feeling like I need to contribute. If you do want to discuss the book with them, you can do it in the comments of their Instagram — brilliant!

Quit Wining

In my former binge-drinking party girl phase, I assumed sober people were boring AF. These recovery podcasts prove that I was wrong. My misconceptions came from the fact that I had little to no experience with sober people, so I relied heavily on tired tropes portrayed in film and TV. If I had heard podcasts like these from people living proud, out loud, sober lives, maybe I would have stopped drinking sooner.

They speak openly about their past buying into “wine o’clock” and how it impacted them as women and as parents. They now happily “put down the Pinot” to ask themselves questions about how they feel and what they need. Recovery Rocks is the podcast that I co-host with my friend/mentor,Lisa Smith, where we talk about all things recovery and rock ‘n roll. Our varied paths show listeners that there are myriad paths to recovery and countless songs to rock out to along the way.

I went to school to become a registered addiction counselor so I could answer the questions that no one was sobriety sucks answering for me. I didn’t wait for it all to work out, I took action. Now I teach at an outpatient clinic.
