Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to step into the unknown, and commit to sobriety 100%?
In a world where drinking, and over-indulging are often front and center, it’s easy to feel that way.
You know firsthand how difficult it is to step into this process, make a decision to quit drinking, then figure out how to stick to that decision on a daily basis, figuring out how and where to get help, with the constant anxiety of, what will my family say, how will I ever have fun again, are my friends going to ditch me, am I really never going to drink again???
No one truly understands the pressure of sobriety like you and I because we live it.
And if you’re a partner, and a parent, there are added pressures and anxieties that can feel too big to overcome.
But, you’ve heard me say this before – if I can do this, I promise you, you can, too.
And today, you’re going to spend a lot of time nodding your head in agreement as you hear this story.
She’s a wife, she’s smart, was a business owner and always high-functioning, and a super-mom.
And, like so many of us, she realized she was using alcohol as a coping mechanism because she didn’t have the necessary coping skills to deal with all the daily life challenges.
She struggled to find help and support – devastated by the thought of leaving her family and kids to go to inpatient treatment, feeling uncomfortable with traditional support groups because of past religion trauma, and she knew she needed a private, personalized solution to help her figure out how to stay sober on a daily basis.
You’ll hear Kari C. talk about how she found her perfect program, and also how she came to understand that it’s okay to take pieces from different programs and do your recovery your way.
She’ll also tell you how she got through:
- Feeling selfish, as a mom, taking time away from her family for herself
- Realizing how important it is to take care of herself
- Finding the right support for her personal recovery plan
- And understanding how important it is to manage anxiety on a daily basis
So, how did she find the strength to take action, and get help?
You’re about to hear every detail with all the ups and downs, in this episode.
