    235. When you feel like you are sinking past the point of no return with Osher Gunsberg

    In this episode I was so stoked to talk with much loved Australian TV host, radio presenter, podcast host and author Osher Gunsberg (formerly Andrew G). We talk about Osher's relationship with alcohol which was masking anxiety which he has suffered with from a young age. We chat about his history with alcohol, how like many of us, once he starts he can't stop, his rock bottom era and how he turned around just going day by day.

    233. Getting your power back and looking up with Beau Brooks.

    In this episode, I catch up with Beau Brooks, who rose to fame in the 2010s as the frontman of the popular prankster group, The Janoskians. From hanging out with celebrities like the Kardashians and Ariana Grande, Beau shares his journey and opens up about his childhood wound from being abandoned by his father at a young age, which fueled an unquenchable desire for recognition.
    After achieving fame, Beau started drinking heavily, which escalated to binge drinking and an inability to socialize without substances. His addiction to alcohol, cocaine, and pharmaceutical drugs spiraled out of control until a near-death experience he pledged to stay sober.
    Now living a more humble life, Beau works in a factory and resides with his mom, using public transport to get to and from work. Despite his challenges, he uses his massive platform of over 3 million TikTok followers to advocate for mental health, sobriety, and living a wholesome life. Beau also participates in ultra-marathons and recently launched his own clothing brand, Look Up (I was actually his first customer!).

    231. Milestones; wineries, parties, a parent passing, and spring days sober with Michelle French

    231. Milestones; wineries, parties, a parent passing, and spring days sober with Michelle French

    In this episode, I catch up with Michelle French, a HIQA grads member, for her second appearance on the podcast. We chat about some big challenges Michelle has faced over the last two years, like being the designated driver during a 30th birthday winery tour, discussing how she managed her cravings on the day and how playing the craving forward, with honesty
    We explore how Michelle has embraced her creative side as a form of meditation, helping her find peace and focus. Now, two years into her sobriety, she finds that thoughts of alcohol rarely cross her mind—a place she once thought was way out of reach. Her story has not only transformed her own life but has also been a source of inspiration for her son and those around her.
    Michelle opens up about the difficult times, including the hospitalisation and passing of her mother, and how even though it was a tough time she stayed committed to her sobriety through it all.
    We talk about the day she almost threw in the towel and gave into the SB but reached out for support which kept her from drinking.
    Through these stories, Michelle shows us that sobriety is a deeply personal but also fulfilling journey. Her reflections remind us that we can face life's biggest challenges and emotions while staying true to the person we aspire to be. Michelle's journey is a beautiful example of resilience and the power of doing things your own way. I love her so much. I hope you love this episode too.

He shares how creating boundaries became a pivotal aspect of his journey towards healing and sobriety.

We chat about the difference between confidence and self-esteem, emphasising the role of boundaries in cultivating self-worth. Kurt delves into how setting boundaries not only fosters trust within oneself but also leads to personal growth and healing. He shares personal anecdotes and insights, highlighting the unexpected yet transformative nature of his journey.

Keeping me sober

I’m newly sober and devouring this amazing, honest and very down to earth Aussie podcast! I love that it’s not just talking to celebs or public figures about their journey- Danni talks to ‘normal’ everyday people which is so much more relatable. So inspiring. Thanks Danni you legend!

One of the best

I listen to a lot of recovery podcasts and this is one of the best ones out there. The show manages to stay really positive and entertaining, despite covering some very serious topics. Highly recommend listening.
