It took me a long time to get to this point. It probably shouldn’t have, as I had warning signs all along the road I was driving down, but the journey felt like too much fun to quit.
I’m lucky enough to have never completely wrecked anything in my life as a result from my addictions. Never had a DUI, never got so gone that I was abusive or violent, never got kicked out of school or lost a job. All in all, life was pretty good. And I didn’t think it could get any better.
However, I wasn’t pushing myself for very much, either. Drunken weekends with friends led to drunken weeknights and not a whole lot of productivity in my life in my wasted years.
One of the first things I did when I made the decision to be sober in November of last year was to go to my podcast app and search out as many recovery and sober podcasts as I could find.
This led me to the Recovered Podcast and Recovery Elevator to start out with. As time passed, I also started following That Sober Guy and The SHAIR Podcast. Listening to these shows definitely helped keep me sober in my first year of this journey.
Stay tuned and follow along for inspiration and motivation for your sober journey in business and life.
We’ll be hosting interviews and podcast episodes featuring entrepreneurs making it in business, and doing it sober in a world where that is nowhere near the norm.
