KENOSHA ⏤ As of Jan. 1, 2022, I am officially five years sober from alcohol, after roughly also a decade of alcoholism/binge drinking.
However, while that is a cause for celebration in my life, the milestone leaves me thinking about why it’s so hard for many to reach that goal.
Therefore, I’ve identified some things that keep many of us in an unfortunate situation longer than needed. And more often than not, these boil down to warped framing in our minds, in my experience of sobriety.
Below, please take time to listen to the podcast with my full thoughts on sobriety, addiction and also the framing that keeps us from getting help.
