On Being AFAF: A Conversation With Doug Gelling
🎙 Meet Doug Gelling: A STRIVER who decided to rewrite the script of his life by quitting alcohol in 2016. Far from hitting "rock bottom," Doug realized that his life, marred by alcohol dependence, was on an unsustainable path that affected his health and relationships.

💡 Guiding Principle: Inspired by Dr. BJ Miller, Doug's life mantra can be summed up as: "Life is precious because it ends." In his own words, "Nothing that has an unlimited supply is precious. As I’ve gotten older, I understand that each day is truly a precious gift. I will not waste another one of them."

I have just woken up with a hangover and my husband (who gave up drinking a year ago) has informed me what I said to him and it wasn’t very nice. So I came across your pod cast 37 and have decided as off now, I am stopping as everything you said is how I feel. There are so many things I want to do but don’t because I am frightened I will loose my friends and family etc. I will let you know how I get on thank you
This really helps
I would encourage anyone who is not happy with their relationship with alcohol to listen to these podcasts. There are loads of them. The author is straight talking honest and really get into the issues others just glance over. Well done Lee. Keep Striving.
Enjoy... Makes me think about things that I wouldn’t normally
