In this powerful story of sobriety. Soberful Coach Tamara Kirby
finally discusses her traumatic childhood and descent into
addiction. Sober for over eleven years, she is a powerful example
of doing the work of sobriety.
Shame and guilt are big emotions that we have to deal with when
we get sober. Veronica and Chip discuss how these emotions can fuel
a lot of our drinking and what happens when we get sober and we
have to face them.
Jardine Libaire and Amanda Eyre Ward join Veronica to discuss
their book, The Sober Lush. When they got sober, they
discovered that everything about sobriety was the opposite of what
they believed. It was fun, expansive and exciting. So they wrote a
book to tell the world about what they had discovered.
We hear this all the time 'but getting sober is so hard!' Chip
and Veronica explain that it feels hard because of our perception
about drinking and sobriety and it's actually having an alcohol
problem that is hard.
Veronica Valli and Chip Somers are experts on recovery. Chip Somers was most recently described by Russell Brand in his book 'Recovery' as a 'right social liability.' Together they have been sober for almost 50 years and have a LOT of stories, messes, experience and occasionally helpful advice to share on living in sobriety. They bring all of that (and more) to the Soberful podcast. This podcast is for anyone who wants to live an alcohol-free life, is struggling to get sober or who is in long-term recovery.
