Ep 52: Kim Sandhu on his addiction, mental illness and recovery

Welcome to Episode # 52 of The Alcohol & Addiction Podcast. In this week’s episode I talk to Kim Sandhu. Kim has kindly come on the show to talk about a life that has been inextricably linked with addiction ever since he had his first drink of Southern Comfort aged 11. We cover a wide range of issues personal to Kim including how his difficult relationships with his father, mother, and brother, and how they shaped his life. We talk about mental illness, trauma, and touch upon how wide ranging addiction is. We also touch upon the power of story, forgiveness and Kim’s journey through seven years of sobriety, relapse and where he is today. Kim blogs about his life at http://www.thetriptofreedom.com. I find his courage to be that of a lion. I think his writing is amazing. And his willingness to open up his personal story for us all to learn from is deeply moving. Ladies and gentlemen, Kim Sandhu.

The first is the Storyfluence Training Course by Michael Hauge and Andre Chaperon. An excellent grasp of storytelling is essential in all aspects of business and in life, and what better way to learn about the framework of a story than from a Hollywood scriptwriter and the man responsible for the Auto Responder Madness email course. Secondly, I want to tell you about Blinkist. Have you ever picked up a book and thought ‘just get to the point?' Well, Blinkist does that. They have read hundreds of self-help books, and they break down the most relevant points into a 15-minute bite-sized taste of pure goodness. If you love reading books, you will love Blinkist. Finally, if you are looking for an email subscription list management system with a difference then look no further than ConvertKit. They are so personable, they make you feel loved, and are always on hand to make their product better for you the customer.

Lara Frazier on Prescription Drugs; Psychosis and Why Putting Female and Male Sex Addicts in the Same Treatment Centre Isn’t a Good Idea Welcome to Episode # 63 of The Alcohol & Addiction Podcast and my guest Lara Frazier Lara Frazier is a healer and truth-teller, a sobriety warrior and a pig mama. She is a love junkie & a writer, a student & a teacher. Lara shares a story of healing: in sobriety, through addiction, in life and love, and in all the other big huge moments of fear and magic that we rarely talk about, but we should. Lara Frazier lives in Dallas, TX with her pig, Peaches. She is also the Co-Founder of AddictionUnscripted.com. She documents her story of healing in the most authentic and vulnerable way she knows how; through her own eyes and with her whole heart. In this episode, Lara and I talk about her addiction to prescription drugs and how her doctors kept prescribing her more as a form of treatment. We speak of the inadvertent pressures applied through parenting. Scary drug psychosis moments that end up with sharp implements carving into skin, and why putting male and female sex addicts into a single treatment centre isn't always a great idea.

Ep 73: Kate Bee on How Alcohol Specifically Effect Women; Debunking Alcohol's Myth and More

Welcome to Episode # 73 of The Alcohol & Addiction Podcast the show designed to help you reduce the leverage that alcohol has in your life and your relationships. Today’s guest is Kate Bee, the founder of The Sober School, a website dedicated to helping women navigate sobriety without feeling deprived or miserable. The Sober School provides modern, inspiring and accessible support for high-functioning women who are fed up with drinking too much. Kate's mission is to remove the stigma, misinformation and fear that surrounds addiction. Her work is informed by her own struggle with alcohol and her determination to recover outside of AA and the 12-step system. Kate drew on her own experience to create an online coaching programme, Getting Unstuck. The course helps women understand why they really drink, so they can change their relationship with alcohol for good. Kate is also a freelance journalist. She lives near Manchester in the UK. In this podcast episode, we learn about Kate's back story, the importance of educating the next generation and we question whether people's attitudes towards alcohol will eventually reach the same levels of stigma associated with smoking. We also touch upon the role that AA plays in the alcohol recovery arena, the value of getting your thoughts down on paper and why The Sober School only accepts females into its ranks.

Ep 89: Gary John Bishop Helping Us to Calm The F*ck Down

Welcome to Episode # 89 of The Alcohol & Addiction Podcast the show designed to help you reduce the leverage that alcohol has in your life and your relationships. I first heard about my next guest when my wife, Liza, bought me a book for Christmas called Unf*ck Your Life. I love books, but I think I have suffered a literary overdose because I can't remember the last time I read a decent one until I picked up this little gem from Gary John Bishop. As a working class Northerner, I loved his direct language. There was no frills, no hidden meanings, he just spoke from the heart, and I understood every single word. Gary is not only an author of a great book. He is a world class coach, facilitator, and has a very sexy Scottish accent, which is quite handy when listening to a podcast. This guy can change your life, and so I would pay serious attention to him. During our conversation, Gary talks about his love for ontology, why we are all perfect and whole but don’t even realise it, why we live life through our personae, why it’s important to be relentless, and he kindly points out that I have a few Mummy and Daddy issues.
