Freedom is such a gift that we sometimes take for granted.  Today, I cherish the fact that I am entirely FREE!  In today’s podcast I also talk about current events.  The bottom line is that I am so grateful for so many things and most importantly my sobriety, being an American, and being able to share my experiences with all of you.  Remember to reach out to your doctor prior to getting sober.  I hope you enjoy today’s show!  ...

It was great to meet Nicole, she got sober totally differently than I did.  In 2020, upon admitting to herself that alcohol was not serving her or leading to the life she wanted to create, Nicole set out on a journey to figure out what things would look like alcohol-free. After an initially challenging time of change and introspection, Nicole eventually discovered the vibrant and rapidly growing alcohol-free community, both online...

Today JF (my husband) and I talk about the similarities of living in an actual family that is battling addiction and the state of the Nation.  We give you examples on how to navigate these unknown waters. One of which is just getting back to basics and letting GO!  These are tough times and we need to come together rather than pull apart.  We are all living under one Nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all...

It’s so crazy to think that you need a plan on the 4th of July but, there could be triggers and you probably want to stay sober even if it is a holiday. Can you imagine waking up on the 5th and being back at the start? If you do drink I would hope that you would be able to get back on the wagon ... .but, what if??? I am definitely not trying to scare you! What I am trying to do is make you aware that holidays, even America’s birt...

This week is the 4th of July and what better way to celebrate our Country's birthday than by having veteran Michael Le Buhn on the show. Michael is a chaplain, a veteran, a dad, a son, and a person in recovery. His story brought me to tears a couple of times. Michael is absolutely amazing! Taking time to think of our freedoms and to say thank you is what being an American is all about. Chaplain Michael Le Buhn received care fr...

What hasn’t happened yet for you?  I haven’t gone to jail yet, what haven’t you done yet? Think about when you are drinking; all bets are off! Once you ingest alcohol your decision making is impaired and your motor skills don’t react as quickly as they would if you were sober. But we don’t think about that when we pick up a drink.  In my opinion when we pick up a drink all we think about is that we can’t wait to feel the buzz. The ...

Send us a Text Message. In today’s episode, we talk about honesty, being transparent when you want to hide, and finding the voice to share with others! When we remove our crutch (for me, alcohol), we can’t mask or remove our feelings. We have to be willing to be vulnerable with ourselves and others. Being honest in every aspect of your life is one of the greatest gifts sobriety offers -- if we accept it. I hope you enjoy today’s s...

Send us a Text Message. In today’s podcast I talk about how transparency and authenticity is at the core of being sober, if you can’t be honest sobriety is almost impossible.  We all have choices and why do we choose the easier way — which for a lot of people is choosing to continue to use and stay in the personal hell of active addiction.  When we are able to find someone that will love us and not judge us we have the chance to ...

Send us a Text Message. Do you feel like you are being tested all over the place? 2+2 does not equal 4!  I am proud to say that I was a stay-at-home mom — it brought me so much joy and heartache. I gave it 100% and I don’t want to feel ashamed or stigmatized for the fact that I decided for me it was more important to stay home.  We all have to make our own individual decisions and make them with our spouse or partner.  My belief...

It is important that we remember them and that they didn’t die in vain. They were and are important to all of us, without them would we have our freedoms? Or what is left of them….
