Discovering Our Identities in Recovery w/Janey Lee Grace
Janey Lee Grace is a sober woman who wears many hats--including being the author of many books. While writing several books on holistic living over many years, she herself was keeping the secret of her alcoholism. She was a gray area drinker and did not hit "rock bottom" with her alcohol addiction, yet recognized that her alcohol consumption was not healthy nor was it what she wanted to continue doing in her life. Janey and I talk about the glamorization of alcohol and the reinforcement of drinking in our society. We discuss how drinking alcohol becomes part of our identity and how that causes challenges in knowing who we are when we become sober, but also the positives of early sobriety once we learn how to make space for growth, true self care, creativity, and new experiences. We also discuss the changes in, or sometimes endings of, relationships in sobriety, and she shares some great tips on developing self love and discovering our identities in recovery. You can find Janey on Instagram @janeyleegrace and on her website thesoberclub.com. Find her book, Happy Healthy Sober: Ditch the Booze and Take Control of Your Life, on Amazon here.

AA, Integrity, and Changing Negative Thinking Patterns w/Erica Barnett
Erica Barnett is a journalist, the author of the memoir Quitter: A Memoir of Drinking, Relapse, and Recovery, and the co-founder of the Seattle news website PubliCola. Erica quit drinking many times but kept falling back into relapse--which she now actually accredits to her recovery. She tried several different things to get sober, including Alcoholics Anonymous, rehab, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Erica talks about her negative thoughts and preconceptions about AA that created barriers for her early on, and how she overcame them and learned to accept and benefit from how well the 12 step program truly works for anyone regardless of political or religious beliefs. We also discuss how the program helps people develop more integrity as well as make amends. We discuss negative behavior and thinking patterns, how they still show up in ourselves at times and how to change them. She also shares more about her website PubliCola and we talk about the toxicity of the internet and social media, as well as her struggle to not engage in conflict online. You can find Erica on Twitter @ericacbarnett and at ericacbarnett.com. You can also email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Are you a member of the Confident Sober Women Facebook group?

Rewiring Your Brain w/Mindi Huebner
Mindi Huebner is a sober woman and a mindset mastery coach. She comes from a long line of alcoholics, and though she never thought of herself as an alcoholic, she decided one day that she didn't like who she was or how she felt when she drank, so she made the choice to get sober. Mindi shares an important reminder that it's not about what you're giving up, but rather about what you are gaining when you let go of what no longer serves you. We discuss the loss of control that occurs when drinking alcohol, and how being a "control freak" is not always a negative thing. We also talk about how drinking alcohol is a coping mechanism and about opening our minds to finding new coping strategies--which only happens when we make a conscious choice to do so. She shares that we must train our brains to recognize the gains, otherwise we will only see the losses. Mindi also shares the sentiment that the choice to change occurs when the pain of the known is greater than the pain of the unknown, and we discuss the importance and the challenges of embodying the person we want to be in order to become that person. You can find Mindi on Instagram and LinkedIn. You can also check out her free guided meditation for mental rehearsal at rewireyourbrainclub.com.

Abandonment, Pregnancy Loss, and Negative Thinking Patterns w/Martha Krejci
Martha Krejci is a sober woman in long-term recovery, a business strategist, author, and motivational speaker. While Martha had a good upbringing, she did experience childhood trauma that resulted in abandonment issues when her older sister--who played a large part in raising her--left for college when she was a young child. She used alcohol as a way to help her overcome being an introvert and experiencing social anxiety and awkwardness in hopes of keeping people from leaving her. Martha shares her story about pregnancy loss and blaming her alcoholism for her miscarriage, which ultimately motivated her to quit drinking cold turkey. She let go of the negative thoughts and viewed herself as a strong woman--a superhero--making the choice to create a healthy womb for a baby to grow in. Her husband was an incredible support to her, and we talked about the need to have support and connection from people while in recovery. Martha and I discussed the negative thinking patterns and self-talk that can sometimes take over and make us believe things about ourselves that are not true--and the importance of being able to recognize that these thoughts are irrational as well as see the positive, true things about us. We also talked about being able to recognize when negative thoughts are coming from emotion or logic, and making sure we are being part of the solution to our negative experiences as opposed to contributing to the problem. You can find Martha in her Facebook group: Families Creating Legacies with Martha Krejci, or on her website withmartha.com. Are you a member of the Confident Sober Women Facebook group?

Fitness, Nutrition, and Becoming a Runner w/Martha Hughes
Martha Hughes is a sober woman, runner, fitness expert, and podcaster. She got sober not because of the bad experiences she had with alcohol (though she did have them), but because she was bored of doing the same things over and over again. One day she decided to take the leap and start attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and get an AA sponsor, and has since never looked back. Martha shares that getting sober did not solve all her problems, but it made her problems solvable. It was after she got sober that she really became serious about her running. She shares about her running podcast, Martha Runs the World, which covers all topics related to running and features many every-day runners as guests. Martha and I talk about the negative thinking patterns that can sometimes show up with our exercise routines in both active addiction as well as in recovery, and how to eliminate them. She also shares how having a perfectionist parent affected her self-image and self-love in a negative way. We discuss how to "deal with life on life's terms" and how to be responsive instead of reactive when life gets hard. We also discuss nutrition and weight management not only as sober women, but as middle-aged women in general. Martha also shares her upcoming long distance running plans, as well as gives great tips for those who want to start running. You can find Martha on her website marthrunstheworld.com.

Core Values and Turning Trials into Treasures w/Tamika Thomas
Tamika Thomas is a transparent author, podcaster, life coach, and inspirational speaker. Addiction was a large part of the generational trauma that took place in her family and played a big role in her life during childhood. As an adult and former alcoholic now in recovery, she went to school to become a drug and alcohol counselor but ultimately moved to prevention and early intervention. Tamika believes that core values are a way for us to be, do, and have everything we need in our lives. She shares that her biggest personal core values are: living to inspire--not impress, lifting as she climbs, and turning her trials into treasures. We discussed people pleasing and co-dependency--common traits of children of addicts--and their effects on relationship building, as well as trauma bonding. We talked about ways to discover our personal core values, one of which is to take a calendar or financial inventory, and about what happens when we are not living in alignment with our core values: we may experience anxiety, depression, etc. which can manifest physically in our bodies at times. We also discussed the important fact that as we evolve in recovery, our values may change. You can find Tamika on Instagram @tamika_thomas_ as well as visit her website tuesdaywithtamika.com.

Living in Alignment With Our Core Values w/Lisa Smith
Lisa is the author of the memoir Girl Walks Out of a Bar as well as the cohost of the podcast Recovery Rocks. She had a 12 year descent into an alcohol and cocaine addiction, but hid her addiction and would have been known as a "high-functioning alcoholic". She checked herself in to an outpatient program as well as attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and finally felt that she was at home and could live honestly in those spaces. Lisa and I discussed our callings to speak out and share our stories as a way to help others who have alcoholism in their lives in some way. We also talked a lot about personal core values: When we live in alignment with our personal core values, we attract the right people in our lives; and if our core values are already established and we are living in alignment with them then it is much easier not to derail when things in life get hard. As a recovery coach, Lisa realized that if she was going to help others find their core values, then she needed to discover her own--so she started working to identify those herself and learned that service was of great value to her. Another important discussion was about asking ourselves questions to gain a better understanding of ourselves, such as: "What am I making this decision for?" or "What am I afraid of?" We also talked about the importance of self-awareness and spirituality in recovery, as well as making time for meditation, praying, etc. in our routine. You can find Lisa on her website: lisasmithadvisory.com or on Instagram: @girlwalksout. You can also email her at email@example.com.

Discovering Our Personal Core Values w/Arielle Dyment
Arielle is a recovery coach, life coach, and the CEO of My Sober Compass. As a child and a teen, she was always trying to find ways to escape herself. After having her first drink at the age of 18, alcohol began to take over her life and she lost sight of who she was, and she went to a holistic rehab facility in Canada in 2015. After going to therapy when in recovery from alcoholism, she realized she was lacking self-love--which began her journey into re-discovering her values and self-worth. We discussed the importance of surrounding yourself with like-minded, authentic people. Arielle shares that she practices free writing to discover her most important personal core values. To do this, ask yourself the questions: "Who am I?" and "What do I want in life?" and see what comes to you. We also talked about anxiety in sobriety, and identifying how you want to feel (peaceful, content, etc.), as well as discovering our values, beliefs, and desires as sober adults without influence from others. We shared our thoughts on the importance of being aligned with our personal core values, and how we can experience things like anxiety and depression when we are not living in alignment with them. You can find Arielle on Instagram at @arielledyment or @lived.app. You can also visit the Lived App website.

Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Finding Hope through Spirituality in Recovery w/Hope Andersen
Hope Andersen is a published poet, memoirist, and novelist who got sober in 1981 through a 12-step program. In her first few years of recovery from her alcohol addiction, she started focusing on other addictions (food addiction and addiction to men). She experienced manic depression after having children and experiencing trauma with the death of her mother and father, had a suicide attempt, and learned that she had bipolar disorder--yet she remained sober and got the help she needed with proper treatment and medication. After losing her sense of self, she turned to her Higher Power for guidance and was called to write. She has since written six books and numerous screenplays. We discussed the similarities of recovering from both alcoholism and bipolar disorder. Self care, living in a routine, and learning to trust yourself are vital components to any kind of recovery. Hope shares of her first spiritual awakening in her 20s when she desperately reached out to her Higher Power for help, and she shares that she continues to have spiritual awakenings every day--which are about growing, changing, and becoming the "you" you want to be. We also discussed the importance of meditation to find that spiritual connection in sobriety. You can find Hope on Facebook on her personal page, or her author page: Hope Anderson - Author.

Forming A Spiritual Connection In Recovery
Chrystal Cuellar is a sober, Christian Life Coach who helps women ditch alcohol and become a warrior of Christ. Going through her own journey of sobriety and finding Christ again, led her to where she is today. Before letting go of alcohol she was a huge binge drinker, in a very toxic relationship, and without a relationship with Christ. Chrystal talks about codependency in relationships as an addict as well as finding her way out of negative thinking patterns and the lies she told herself (for example: “I’m not good enough”.) Reminding ourselves that while we may feel a certain way about ourselves, feelings are not facts. We must learn how to change the negative thoughts if they are not true, and accept them if they are. Chrystal and I also talk about the importance of finding a spiritual connection outside ourselves. Having a relationship with Jesus is not necessarily the same as practicing a man-made religion. It's more about following God and letting God heal us as opposed to following and depending on people (in the church). Chrystal is running a 4 week program right now called Sober And Free.

Emotional Sobriety, Self-Love and Spirituality w/Veronica Valli
Veronica Valli is a woman in long-term sobriety and as a recovery coach and psychotherapist, she understands that there is no ONE path to sobriety. Veronica is the author of the book ‘Soberful: Uncover a sustainable, fulfilling life free of alcohol’, co-host of the Soberful Podcast, and creator of successful online recovery programs, Veronica and I share how parenting our children teaches us to be mothers. At three years sober she went through a difficult time with relationships and was suicidal. She realized there was something wrong and started consistently doing things to support her mental and emotional health. The “magic formula” of sobriety is consistency. We believe self-centeredness is the root of many of our problems–it isn’t what you think of yourself, it’s how often. Spirituality is a key part of sobriety–it is not religion but is simply being good to your spirit, personal development, growth, and self-awareness. It is a blessing to be able to recognize the need for connection with something bigger than ourselves or other humans. You can find Veronica on her website, Instagram.Grab her book Soberful here.

Holistic Health In Sobriety w/Michelle Dixon
Michelle Dixon is yoga teacher and holistic health coach that focuses on grounded health and wellness. She has a thriving holistic health YouTube Channel. Not everybody who is struggling with substance abuse has a life that is completely falling apart–sometimes everything appears normal and even good on the outside. Having yoga in her life allows her to connect to her inner peace. We talk about the fact that spirituality and religion are not the same. Michelle is able to use yoga to connect with herself on a deeper level in sobriety. When you improve one area of your life (physical, spiritual, financial health, etc.) it bleeds over into the other areas leading to overall improvement. Yoga has helped her slow down her thoughts and decrease impulsivity, as well as increase self-awareness.

Getting To Know Yourself In Relationships w/Tamara Kirby
Tamara Kirby is a licensed and internationally certified Addictions Therapist who works with people in all stages of recovery. She offers intensive coaching to those who are just getting started. Then later, deeper dives may be taken to address irrational beliefs, unresolved childhood trauma, relational and financial concerns. In our conversation, Tamar talked about the connection between childhood trauma (which occurs on a spectrum) and addiction. We can use reparenting today to be able to allow someone else to come into our lives and be in a relationship with us. Tamar shared about recognizing patterns (in relationships) and what is familiar vs. what is healthy. Slowing down when starting new relationships, getting to know the other person first without being physical right away. Getting curious about ourselves and about potential partners. Learning what is going on in our bodies–tuning in to our bodies and recognizing what is happening when certain things come up in relationships. She talks about tending to herself first and not ignoring any aspects of your life. She believes the fuller and more balanced the life, the better the romantic relationships. She also shared about the repairing of her relationship with her daughter, and how she validated her daughter’s experiences when she was drinking and taking responsibility for the things that happened during that time.

Sex (And Dating) In Sobriety w/Tawny Lara
Tawny is an award-winning podcast host, and the author of The Addiction Diaries and Sex And The Single Woman. She has positioned herself as The Sober Sexpert through her own learning and story to empower and provide hope for women in recovery. You don't have to loose everything to reevaluation your relationship with alcohol. Tawny made the connection between sexual trauma and the need to have alcohol to have sex. She leaned on her liquid courage to do things she might not normally have done. We spoke about the importance of communicating or saying no if sex in sobriety is uncomfortable or triggering for you. It is important to take it slow and not jump into dating/sex right away. In early sobriety, you’re meeting and learning about yourself for the first time. This includes taking the time to get to know our bodies, not just sexually but in all ways. There are a lot of ways to get better at communicating our wants and needs. You can connect with Tawny through her podcast Recovery Rocks, on Instagram @TawnyMLara, website www.tawnylara.com.Would you please take one minute to leave a review of this podcast?

Dating, Sex and Taking it Slow in Sobriety w/Sarah Hepola
Sarah is the best selling author of Blackout, a memoir. She is also the host of the podcast Texas Monthly about the Dallas, Cowboys cheerleadrs. She is also an expert on gender roles and sexual relationships. Sarah learned after getting sober that sex with one person over a longer period of time is much more enjoyable and meaningful than sex with multiple people. Also, that what we enjoy or are comfortable with in sex can change so much after getting sober, and there are challenges of working through that with a partner. We as humans are constantly evolving and never know what “our truth” might be down the road. Learning how to speak up for ourselves and what we like or are comfortable with is part of the journey. Gender roles and roles in sexual relationships have changed in the past few decades and now we are able to negotiate them–something we were never taught how to do. Sarah has become comfortable with taking it slow when dating, learning to enjoy her own company but not isolate herself. You can find Sarah on her website,https://sarahhepola.com/ and Instagram @thesarahhepolaexperienceMy new book, Recovering in Recovery: The Life-Changing Joy of Sobriety is now out in stores.

Women and Alcohol: Why Numbers Are Rising w/Ann Dowsett Johnston
Ann is the best-selling author of the book Drink, that anonymously interviewed alcoholic women and told their stories. Some AA members were unhappy with her writing it. Ann discusses all the different paths, programs, etc. to recovery as well as the stigma and shame with alcoholic women. Ann and I discuss her thoughts on burnout in women and how it can lead to alcoholism, as well as other contributing factors to the rising number of women who are alcoholics. She describes how society asks the question “What happened to that woman?” instead of “What’s wrong with that woman?” (looking at the trauma behind the addiction). Our discussions leads to all the propaganda and sensationalizing of alcohol/alcoholism with our youth. Normalizing overwhelm and talking about different ways to cope with it. Ann shared how writing is her therapy and keeping gratitude journals–being grateful for all the good and the bad.

Meaningful Motherhood In Sobriety w/Clare Pooley
Clare Pooley realized in 2015 she had to quit drinking, and started a blog by way of therapy. That blog went viral and was published as a memoir - The Sober Diaries. Clare now writes fiction. Her debut novel - The Authenticity Project is a New York Times bestseller and Clare’s second novel is out in June. This conversation is all about the power of connecting with others. After all the opposite of addiction is connection. We talked about her blog-turned-book and how it covers what things look like after you get sober, which is funny because that's exactly what my book, Recovering in Recovery: The Life-Changing Joy of Sobriety is all about. There is tremendous progress made when we commit to emotional sobriety and personal growth. Clare was very nervous about her friendships when she quit drinking because most of her friends drank the same way she did. Some friends drifted away but eventually came back and the friendships had to be redefined–were more meaningful and less toxic. For her, relationships become deeper when she found new/varied ways to socialize. She rediscovered things about herself in sobriety. The main reason she quit drinking was for her kids–felt like she missed out on a lot because of alcohol and she was a better, more present mom when she quit. You can find Clare on her website www.clarepooley.com or Instagram @clare_pooley , Twitter, or Facebook page (SoberMummy).If you aren't a member of the Confident Sober Women Facebook group come on over and join us.

She has over 12 years of recovery as a Sex and Love Addict, and hosts the popular personal journal podcast “Secret Life.” Her debut novel, “Secret Life of a Hollywood Sex & Love Addict,” hit the best-sellers list on Amazon earlier this year.Brianne and I talk about emotional addiction–getting drunk on the chemical reactions that happen in your brain in certain situations/with people. We know that childhood trauma contributes to these triggers and addictions and you can be addicted to a person/people. Brianna talks about her experience with emotional incest: when a parent rapes a child of their energy. We discuss setting and sticking to healthy boundaries in relationships and other areas of our lives. She would drain people of all their energy trying to get her needs met. If you want to dive more into boundaries check out my course Creating Healthy Boundaries! Click the link for more information. When you’re in recovery of any kind, you have to wake up every day and recommit. This requires doing the inner work to figure out how you want people to show up for you.
