“Today I Am Sober” is a podcast which celebrates the joy of being sober. It provides useful & actionable tips on how to bring even more joy into your recovery.
Hosted by Liz W a successful corporate woman who secretly needed 3 bottles of Pinot Grigio a night then 6 cans of Red Bull to function the next day at work. She checked into rehab on 26th September 2013 and hasn’t had a drink since. As she says every morning & night, with gratitude, “Today I Am Sober”.
Liz left her corporate role in 2016 and has since been self-employed.
Liz is on a mission to show that living a sober life with joy is possible and that ANY woman can be an alcoholic and recover. #AlcoholismDoesntDiscriminate
Cancer with Liz W
Did you read in last weeks show notes that I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer? Nope, perhaps you missed that news. Sadly that’s all I’ve been able to think about since my diagnosis on 5th February. That’s why we were off air during February.
To keep this podcast going I do need your help, financially! If you can, please consider becoming a patron - find out more here: https://www.patreon.com/todayiamsober every penny counts.
Since my diagnosis I’ve changed.
Physically - bye bye left boob, hello ‘one tit’ wonder Emotionally - I’ve realised I’m far more resilient than I’ve ever given myself credit for Spiritually - I’m absolutely convinced God has got my back and I will survive Warning! I recorded this episode late one night post diagnosis but pre-mastectomy. I haven’t listened back to it. I’ve no idea what I said. But as ever, if this episode helps one person (other than me) then I’m happy.
Enjoy, and please do let me know what you think about this episode over on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/todayiamsober
Rehab with Jared Longhorne
Jared Longhorne is like me, a recovering alcoholic staying sober one day at a time. Today we chat about all things rehab and recovery, but specifically how he’s hoping to help other recovering addicts through his concierge business.
***Apologies to my regular listeners for going off air in March. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2020 (eek!) so I took the month off. Tune in next week for a cancer update! ***
Silence with Sally Brockway
Today’s episode is about the power of silence and how connecting with yourself through meditation can give you a spiritual awakening or as Sally Brockway calls it a “love experience”.
We've had several women come on the show and talk about the inner critic, this really nasty bully that's inside of us that tells us horrible things and they've given us some tactics to overcome them. Sally is the founder of WOWl PR and she has a phenomenal while PR school, so for any of you that when you own businesses, please do check her out. It's phenomenal. I'm actually a member and I love it. But Sally’s not here to talk about PR today. Instead we’re having a chat about how she’s overcome that horrible, nasty self critic that was inside of her and the journey that she’s taken in 2019 to get you to the point where you are today.

Fit with Lisa Moore
Is getting fit in 2020 one of your ambitions? Today I'm joined by Lisa Moore of Fit For Moore. Lisa is a personal trainer and health coach and what she doesn't know about getting fit simply isn't worth knowing. I’ve invited Lisa on the show because I haven't done what I said I was going to do three months ago, check out episode 1 with Dr Katherine Hickman. I said I was going to lose three stone in weight. Now I haven't lost a single kilo or pound because I haven’t created a tiny habit. So I wanted to chat with Lisa about how our heads can sometimes stop us from achieving what we want to achieve. Lisa and I delve into some of the things that can hold us back and what we can do to set ourselves up for success if we too want to get fit.

Reset with Jen Sugarmeyer
Do you want to quit drinking? In this episode I’m joined by Jen Sugarmeyer as she shares her story from the pits of hell into recovery. Jen took back her own power back over an addiction that almost claimed her life and shares her 5 step process ‘Reset’ which is also the name of her upcoming book.
We also chat about how to date yourself. I’d love to know how you’re going to treat yourself! Me? I’m buying pink roses every week in 2020 (well apart from during the tulip season!).
From fear to fearless, Jen took her scars and shattered pieces and took back the life that was taken from her. Broken and ashamed, Jen led a double-life before everyone’s eyes, and was slowly dying inside. Afraid of the repercussions of asking for help, admitting she had a problem, and taking the time to unravel years of damage, for over two decades Jen couldn’t manage to break the cycle of addiction in her life. Her pain came not only from her own abuse, but the physical and mental abuse she endured in an abusive relationship.
In and out of jails and hospitals, Jen’s life was entirely unmanageable- she was only able keep her corporate life isolated, but she knew she was playing with fire. Jen knew it wasn’t long until her hidden life would be exposed at the office - her inner demon was getting stronger and stronger and she was losing control of her progressive disease.
Lying to cover her physical and emotional bruises, Jen was at her breaking point….until her life changed.
It was none of Jen's lows or her bottoms that changed her life - it was the kind words uttered by someone who genuinely cared that made her realize that she was worth fighting for - and that’s what she did.
Jen embarked on the fight of her life - for her life - and she shares her strength and encouragement to help you claim the life you deserve!
If you are in need of change, if you have lost power over an area in your life, if you are living a double life and afraid your worlds are going to collide, Jen’s new book ‘Reset’ out in Spring 2020 is just for you.

This woman is a inspiration!
Liz W has been sober for 6 years and shares the challenges of life and her sobriety. Her latest episode where she shares receiving a diagnosis of Breast Cancer is raw, honest and totally inspiration. This woman rocks!
Brilliant and absorbing
I’ve been looking for a good sobriety podcast but so many of them are v American and v serious. This is an infectiously cheerful, forensically knowledgeable podcast that always leaves me better than it found me. The recording quality is a bit dodgy but it’s testament to the quality of the content and Liz W’s terrific hosting that I stop noticing it almost immediately.
