This audio is about having sober tools and using them.
How do you move beyond “I’ll reach out more when I’m shitty”? This is a contributing factor to why relapse happens. “I’m going to wait until I’m out on the ledge before I look for a map.”
This isn’t trivial, this is your continuous sobriety, on which you have based a bunch of things, no matter if you're on day 6 or 226.
So what do you do to prevent your sober car from NEVER running out of gas? (Definitely make sure you listen until I start talking about washing your hair and how that’s like being sober)
There is also a bonus Q&A session recorded after the official podcast which you can find in the unedited version of the audio, where I answer questions about how to attend a sporting event, how to explain being sober to people who don’t know yet, do I give myself sober treats after so many years (yes, but in what context), how do you pick a sponsor if you don’t identify with the demographics of these people, how do you get momentum when your life is unraveling day by day, how to get away from family and ensure you get alone time...
hugs, me xo
