    Setting Boundaries and How To Begin

    Setting Boundaries and How To Begin

    Setting boundaries matters because they're the guardrails of our well-being. They define the limits of acceptable behavior, protecting our mental, emotional, and physical health. When we establish boundaries, we honor ourselves and communicate our needs, fostering healthier relationships.

    They also prevent burnout, reduce stress, and promote self-respect, empowering us to create a life aligned with our values and priorities. Boundaries are the cornerstone of self-care and personal growth, allowing us to thrive in every aspect of life.

    You can download this free quiz  Unlocking Self Awareness  to help you recognize your needs, values, and limits, empowering you to establish and maintain healthy boundaries in your life.

    Join us as we delve into the transformative power of boundaries. Learn how they reduce stress, elevate self-respect, and align us with our values, paving the way for a life of purpose and fulfillment.

    Tune in to discover the art of setting boundaries, empowering personal growth, and thriving in every part of your life in this Season 3 Episode #138 of the Soberoso Podcast.

    Relapse, Redemption, and Rikers Island

    In this compelling second part of Stevie's interview, we dive deeper into her difficult journey to sobriety. Her story takes an extraordinary turn as we learn how her friends became the lifeline she desperately needed, literally saving her life by putting her on a plane to San Antonio's International Convention on July 1st, 2010. As Stevie reflects, "They say we get by with a little help from our friends, my friends literally saved my life."
    This episode of the Soberoso Podcast goes beyond addiction and blackouts, touching down on the crucial topic of mental health and the stigmas that often surround it. Stevie openly shares the consequences of her last relapse, which led her to a dark place, landing her on Rikers Island among some of the world's toughest inmates, and battling thoughts of ending her own life.


    After enduring ten challenging months, Stevie's journey took a positive turn as she was transferred to Albion. Inside, she, along with a few other inmates, initiated a 12-step program that remarkably gained traction with over 100 women on a waitlist to join. Stevie's story is a testament to the progressive nature of recovery, and she shares the beauty in this ongoing transformation.

    The Battle of Blackouts: Stevie's Journey to Sobriety

    The Battle of Blackouts: Stevie's Journey to Sobriety

    In this episode of "The Battle of Blackouts," we're joined by our special guest and friend Stevie B.  from Phoenix, Arizona, with thirteen years of sobriety.  Stevie's journey through addiction is a candid exploration of her battle with alcoholism. From her early days of not fitting in and seeking comfort in alcohol to her struggles with the law, this episode dives into her harrowing experiences, including multiple DUIs, a pivotal moment with a probation officer, and the realization that alcohol was a problem she couldn't ignore.

    Stevie's six-year streak of sobriety came to a heartbreaking end after the loss of a family member, a failed change of scenery, and a painful breakup. Her descent into a relapse even led to a shocking incident involving a stolen U-Haul and felony charges.

    Throughout her journey, Stevie grappled with blackouts, initially believing she'd never become like those stereotypical stories of alcoholism. But as her story unfolds, we witness her relentless struggle to stay clean and sober, repeatedly falling and rising in her pursuit of recovery. Tune in to hear her inspiring tale of resilience and redemption in part 1/2 of the Soberoso Podcast episode #136

I LOVE that this is not “one size” fits all

I’ve been listening to podcasts for a little while now and was introduced to Soberoso podcasts. As a person in recovery I enjoy hearing others triumph in their own journey and Dora’s podcasts encompasses them all. Even though recovery is a serious manner, Dora’s calm demeanour and sense of humour is so refreshing. When I’m listening to this podcast, I feel like I’m right there.
Do yourself a favour...listen and see how the “beautiful peeps” are doing!!
