    Addiction, Part 2

    Addiction, Part 2

    In this second part of the 2 LADS’ discussion on addiction, Leggy goes deeper into his own journey with drugs and alcohol, from working out why he couldn’t walk away from drugs in his teens and twenties to how he thinks about addiction now and what has helped him move past it. The 2 LADS also talk about the role pain and trauma play in addiction and the pattern of seeking short-term relief over truly facing trauma and healing the pain that comes from it. Daniel also talks about finding balance and what he thinks we should all be doing to move forward as a society that holds space for people struggling with addiction. Join the discussion now for all that and more.

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (02:50) - The relationship between pleasure and pain - “They are located in the same part of your brain, so the amount of pleasure that you feel is directly proportional to the pain.”
    (03:58) - Striving for balance - “If you let me into the candy store, I'm going to eat all of it.”
    (07:09) - Leggy’s journey with addiction - “When I first took speed when I was 16, why was it that I spent three days awake doing speed and all my mates went home?”
    (17:31) - Addiction is a symptom of trauma - “You have to feel the pain in order to heal the wound, and so the addiction part, the thing that's shutting down the pain, is selling you out of the healing.”
    (23:12) - Getting past addiction - “When you're on the rock bottom, you know everybody don't like you. A lot of people are not trusting you. You probably own people money. You've let people down. Everyone's sick of you, right? You go into an AA room and they welcome you in and they treat you like a human.”
    (30:42) - On self protection - “It's about commitment. To know that you can commit to something and give it your all and not hedge your bets because the hedging of the bets is part of a fear of the failure.”
    (34:04) - Connection is a path to healing - “The tribe we're trying to evolve as will only get better with knowledge of self-love. And the addictions that we're all in will only be healed by vulnerability, honesty and transparency.”
    (36:20) - It’s easier to stay where you’re at and not grow - “It really is hard. And every time we go through a layer, there is another layer. It's ongoing.”
    (37:13) - Addiction affects everything - “Everything that we do, there's this addiction thing attached to it. How does addiction affect love? How does addiction affect my career? How does my addiction affect my health and fitness?”

    Addiction, Part 1

    Addiction, Part 1

    In the first of another two-parter, Leggy and Daniel go hard, vulnerable and honest about another not-so-small topic: addiction. There’s a lot to cover so Leggy’s story will have to wait until Part 2 (out next week!), but first, in this extended first half, the 2 LADS discuss Daniel’s thoughts on addiction, from believing everybody’s an addict to how he came to recognize it in himself and begin to work through it. The 2 LADS also discuss comfort zones, being young and ruthless, training for a triathlon and the surprising silver lining to struggling with extreme addiction. Settle in because tackling the topic of addiction is going to take a while.

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (02:47) - The Check In - “When you hug Leggy, you feel worse. It's like hugging a bag of hammers.”
    (04:41) - Thriving vs. being in survival mode - “I've always been in a state of making it up on the fly and I don't know what it is to be living or what it is to take care of myself.”
    (12:29) - Leggy’s comfort zone - “I think I’ve honestly jeopardized my career over the years because I always would rather be in my comfort zone.”
    (20:31) - Failure knocking the lads down a peg - “I was ruthless. I had no experience so I was just like, ‘I'm the shit.’ I was just the biggest narcissist in the world.”
    (26:57) - Daniel’s definition of addiction - “Addiction is not necessarily the pursuit of a high, it's more the escape of pain.”
    (28:32) - Daniel’s story of facing addiction - “For me, drugs and sex became a way of just feeling something different for a little while and it felt ‘in control.’”
    (35:10) - Daniel’s want to be impressive - “My biggest struggle my whole life is that I'm so fucking desperate to be respected.”
    (43:21) - Combating addiction with community - “God knows where I'd be if I didn't have you lads.”
    (46:17) - Leggy asks Daniel if he’s an addict - “I think everybody's an addict.”
    (53:18) - Addiction forces self reflection - “God help you if you're in the middle zone where it doesn't show up as that bad that you have to look at it. And that happens to a lot of people, and it's like what do you do then?”

    Conflict

    Conflict

    In this episode of 2 LADS, Daniel and Leggy walk us through a recent conflict they had while on holiday—not in Wales—in an effort to break down how tricky conflict can be and how important it is to set our weapons down and get back to loving each other. Daniel also discusses the dilemma he sees between being agreeable and being untrustworthy. Leggy talks about what’s usually going on on the surface versus the feelings you don’t even realize you’re experiencing in real time. And they both agree that we often build up stories about others in order to justify our negative feelings. The 2 LADS eventually conclude that you can get past conflict and even grow from it, tyrants and lads on tour included. Their final take-away being to always bring a life coach on holiday.

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (02:51) - The Check In - “Part of why I didn't want to reveal stuff is that I'm actually pretty fucking boring. Mystery is more interesting than the facts.”
    (14:01) - Conflict can strengthen a relationship - “With us, the more conflict we have, the more I trust you. The more I trust our friendship.”
    (16:11) - Conflict to get your way in the world - “Is being aggressive wrong all the time? Is conflict wrong? No, it's not. It's just when to use it, and is it serving you?”
    (19:02) - Deescalating conflict - “The idea of expressing any vulnerability is really scary and very difficult, and yet it's the only thing that will deescalate the problem.”
    (20:34) - Daniel and Leggy’s holiday conflict, an example of conflict - “You were looking at a tyrant and it was your job to fight him?”
    (25:23) - The conscious vs. the unconscious - “That's another fucking minefield that you're dealing with where you might be pissed off at me for something that you don't even know that you're pissed off about.”
    (27:19) - The stories we tell ourselves - “If you see someone day to day and you're in a relationship with them, you start to see their humanity. Their good parts. Their bad parts. But you have a relationship with them that means that the stories don't build up.”
    (31:51) - Getting on the same page - “This is where it's hard because you want it to be dialed. You want everyone to be in the same place so that we can just get to where we need to get to to resolve.”
    (39:40) - Coming to a resolution - “I think it was the first big blowup that we’ve had. And that happens in relationships all the time, but it's also knowing, ‘Hey, like there are going to be things that come up that aren't going to be resolved, but we will eventually resolve them.’”

    Shame, Part 2

    Shame, Part 2

    Daniel and Leggy finish out their two-part conversation on shame in this episode, touching on why we default to shutting down shame with bad behavior and why just sitting with shame can be difficult but important to our personal growth. The 2 LADS also talk about forgiveness and how we’ve lost some room for redemption in modern day society. Finally, they conclude that there is an antidote to shame, though you’ll never avoid the feeling altogether. If you haven’t already heard Part 1 of this conversation, then go back now and listen to that episode first to get the whole, full enchilada on shame.

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (02:57) - Daniel’s shame around acting - “I have a lot of shame about having to do some work to survive.”
    (04:55) - Numbing shame with sex, drugs, etc. - “It sucks to feel shame, so obviously you're going to double down on some sort of pleasure seeking situation to just fucking shut it down, whether it be sex, drugs, you know, whatever your poison is, to just turn it off.”
    (05:31) - Using shame to check in with yourself - “It's very, very fucking hard to sit in the shame, just sit in it, which is the thing to do ultimately to shine a light on it.”
    (06:04) - Patterns of how we deal with shame - “As a kid, I'd get told off for stuff, right? So I'd be shamed, which is why there's an old pattern in me which made me not want to tell you, because I didn't want to get shamed.”
    (06:55) - Shaming others ignores your own humanity - “It's so difficult to not judge, to actually love someone when they fucked up.”
    (10:25) - As religion has receded, so has redemption - “Once you're thrown out, there isn't a pathway back. That's one thing that's missing from our current culture.”
    (15:23) - Not being honest about who you are - “It's very weird for me to really be totally honest about what I like.”
    (19:39) - Men don’t have the same healthy outlets as women - “There's a great kind of culture of women taking care of themselves, pampering themselves, they go into a kind of selfcare mode and we don't really have those rituals.”
    (22:21) - Shame is inevitable - “You're never a master of this. You're always a student.”

    Shame, Part 1

    Shame, Part 1

    In the first of this two-part conversation, Leggy and Daniel discuss shame, from how they experience it, to recognizing its effects and why it’s important to talk about. The 2 LADS also talk about the relationship between shame and judgement, and how we can fall into the trap of projecting our own moral standards on others leading to unnecessary shame. And they even get into how shame has affected their sex lives and personal relationships. Listen now for another candid conversation on a topic you don’t often hear men talking about so openly.

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (02:58) - Recognizing when you're acting in shame - “Shame is a tricky one because a lot of the time you don't even know that you're in shame until you reflect on what you've just done.”
    (05:17) - Shame and sex - “There's something about the shame of giving your wholeself to something. There's a shame in that.”
    (10:34) - Shame and judgment - “The influence of other people's version of shame—often their own projection by the way—is where people get into trouble.”
    (12:36) - Shame is a sign something is out of alignment - “I believe it is on me to get clear about how I want to operate in the world, and then if shame comes in, it means to me now that something is not aligning.”
    (13:39) - Forgiving yourself for your mistakes - “Acknowledge that you fucked up, but you also have to be kind to yourself because you're already in shame.”
    (15:16) - The strange things we do out of shame - “I think subconsciously underneath that, there was a kind of fishing line out to try to get some kind of the connection that would validate the other feeling.”
    (20:57) - Shame spirals and talking about shame - “Men aren't good at dealing with that because we don't talk very much. We never get to bounce something off somebody else and stop the spiral in its tracks.”
    (24:42) - Estimable acts and Shame pits - “There's so many shame pits now. There are just shame pits everywhere. You can't do anything other than stumble into a shame pit.”
    (26:54) - Front loaded vs. back loaded shame - “The back end of the shame is equal and proportionate to how easy the first part was.”

    Psychedelics

    Psychedelics

    In this episode of 2 LADS, Leggy and Daniel discuss their own experiences with psychedelics as well as other drug use, addiction, and subsequently sobriety. With psychedelics being a hot topic at the moment, they speak about how the process of “journeying” can be helpful, if the right steps are taken post-journey.
    They also discuss how pain can be an indicator of trauma; and how our innate life force or ‘eros’ gets numbed over time by painful experiences. Join the LADS in a convo about how they’ve found a healthier way to face their own demons and work to heal.

    JUMP STRAIGHT INTO:
    (04:44) - Taking drugs to numb emotions - “When I would take drugs, it was like self medication. It would make me almost feel like, ‘Oh, this must be what it feels like to be normal.’”
    (07:35) - On Journeying with Ayahuasca - “I just went into a total acceptance of me. It was almost like I could just put the reins down. Like I've been holding on so tightly in my sobriety.”


    (16:05) - Discovering the benefits of Heart Medicine i.e. Psychedelics - “This is so much more powerful than just getting high or feeling connected, and that took me a couple of years.”


    (21:37) - How psychedelics can help you face emotional pain in the same way anestesia helps people with physical pain - “They put you under general anesthetic because if you went over to someone with a scalpel trying to work on someone's heart, they're going to go, ‘Get the fuck off me!’ You know?”


    (23:46) - Why people are apprehensive about Journeying - “I also understand the idea of like, ‘There's so much darkness in me that I don't want to go there.’ The association is that it will reveal this thing. And it does! But it doesn't do it in a way that is about you not being able to feel or receive it.”


    (25:45) - The free, childlike state that can come from psychedelics - “As adults, we're all going mental all the time. We're just trying to ‘achieve, achieve, achieve.’ We're trying to get to this never ending place of success, whatever that means. And I think that we forget how important play is.”

It’s like reading a good book

I’m loving it. It’s like reading a good book or have an enjoyable conversation with a friend. It’s about complex and everyday life themes but confronted in a simple and fully way. Maybe it’s time to open your eyes… and to do that two voices can be enough. Absolutely recommended!

_sincerelyjuliet_ ,

Loving it!

I started listening ti the chats because of Daniel Sharman's presence, but I have to admit they are really interesting as is interesting to hear two "lads" talking about unusual topics of which guys talk😅
Really loving it guys, keep going! You are doing great and I'm proud of what you've already achieved with just two episodes❤️
