Sober Girl talk on The Bubble Hour Podcast
Wondering what life would look like without alcohol in it?
Listen to this Bubble Hour Podcast episode and find out.
In it, Jean McCarthy & I talk early sobriety, quitting drinking and the sweet life on the other side of alcohol.
Hi, I’m Casey.
Mom, Wife, Life Coach, & Ex Red-Wine Girl.
In this episode of The Bubble Hour (a podcast where real women tell real stories of addiction and recovery) I was interviewed about why I started reevaluating my relationship with alcohol, my (less-than-successful) attempts to moderate my love of red wine, what led me to decide to quit drinking completely, and how I did it.
Jean McCarthy, host of The Bubble Hour Podcast and author of the UnPickled Blog, and I chat about…
- How my drinking in college turned to happy hours after work, wine tasting weekends and eventually a bottle of wine a night habit.
- How I (slowly) accepted that drinking was holding me back from my best life.
- Why moderation didn’t work for me and why it’s EASIER not to drink.
- The fears I had about what my life would look like without wine glasses and happy hours.
- Who I told about my efforts to stop drinking, what I said, and how I found support.
- The specific resources I used to help me quit drinking, both in my first 30 days and beyond.
- Why I don’t label myself an alcoholic.
- Why I was “recovering” when I was drinking – and now I’m “living”.
- Why sober travel is the best (and how I survived a trip to Europe with my mom, husband, son and extended family at 4 months sober!)
- What my life looks like now – managing a full time job, 2 kids, marriage, life coaching, friendships, workouts, vacations and self-care – WITHOUT drinking.
- Why sober girlfriends are the absolute best and how to find your sober tribe.
- Setting boundaries in early sobriety & releasing your need to be a people-pleaser.
- Our favorite yoga and beach retreats and why they are important to building a life you love.
