    Thanks for joining me for the final episode of season 6 of One For The Road; this week I am joined by Mike Faria.
    Mike is a 37 year old content creator, born and raised in New Jersey. As a teenager, he experimented with drugs and alcohol to deal with his childhood trauma. In October 2019, he went into a major depression and began drinking more than he ever had in his life. He had to take leave from his job to try to function through the drunken hours, and was hoping the break would help him to quit drinking, but sadly it progressed. In January 2020, he was found barely breathing in his house from acute liver failure, hepatic encephalopathy, and kidney failure. Two weeks prior he had noticed my eyes turned yellow as toxins had built up in his blood from his liver not functioning; Mike was rushed to the ER and was in a coma for almost 3 weeks. He woke up on January 27 to be told he did not qualify for a liver transplant and that he would have to be sober for 6 months to even make the list. Doctors said there was very little chance of survival even with a liver transplant. Mike was 268 lbs when he woke up, and had to learn how to walk and eat all over again. Within three months, Mikes liver miraculously healed and he was given a second chance at life. Mike shares his story with us, and the gratitude he feels to be able to do so.

    Michael Sargood.

    Joining us on this weeks episode of One For The Road is Michael Sargood.
    Michael is the founder of the British alcohol-free news and events website SoberSocials.co.uk.
    At the depths of his alcohol addiction, he was drinking up to a litre of neat vodka per night and was diagnosed as being alcohol dependent.; despite this he managed to hold down a good job until the last few months of his addiction.
    He decided to quit alcohol in March 2020 and went to live with his parents for the first three months of his recovery. He was sober seven months before relapsing in October 2020. That "one" drink lasted four months and saw him placed under the care of the local mental health team. On 17 February 2021, after losing over 24 hours to blackout, he went sober again. That was the last time he drank. This time round, he is trying to recover differently. Instead of just "subtracting" substances, people and places, he is focussing on adding things to his life: new friends, interests, ambitions.

    Thanks for joining me for this weeks episode of One For The Road; this week I am joined by Abi Feltham.
    Abi is a London based content creator whose advocacy for addiction and mental health recovery has brought hope to many. After ten years of travelling the world and living out of a backpack, Abi found herself slipping deeper into drug and alcohol addiction, her mental health at an all time low. The pandemic forced her to move back home to the UK where she finally looked inward and decided to clean up and begin the journey of recovery. Abi has been clean and sober since April 2020, and now creates content detailing the highs and lows of sobriety, recovery and self-discovery.

Heartfelt, insppirational and a total joy

I never realised just how much I needed to hear other people’s stories of their relationship to alcohol and how sobriety has changed their lives until I came across SoberDave’s podcast. His guests are a joy to listen to, often very funny, always wholly authentic and with every episode I hear something I can really relate to. Wonderful.

cazifrd ,

Inspiring podcasts!

I love sober Dave’s insta and podcasts. He should be proud of how he is helping people and changing perceptions & helping people
stop. I’m trying to stop drinking and I often go to Dave’s posts/ podcasts and think “what does Dave say today”. It really helps. Thank you.
