    Signs You Should Stop Trying To Moderate Your Drinking

    Signs You Should Stop Trying To Moderate Your Drinking

    Drinking less and feeling better is the desire of struggling drinkers everywhere.



    It's why we start this journey in the first place, right? Less alcohol consumption, better life.



    My guest on today's episode, Gillian Tietz, changed her life forever when she was forced to take a hard look at her drinking habits and as a result, her quest for moderation came to a halt.



    But then, the unthinkable happened.



    Gill experienced the relief she was seeking with no alcohol at all.



    And she's breaking it all down during our conversation in this episode.



    In it, Gill is throwing a wrench in the whole concept of moderation for alcoholics. So, if you've been looking for guidance on whether or not you are someone who can moderate, or someone who needs to quit altogether, you're in the right place.



    In this episode, Gill and I talk about:



    * Exactly what Gill went through in her moderation journey

    * How to recognize how badly you feel (instead of trying to sweep it under the rug and power through)

    * How us problem-drinkers can begin to shift our perspective on getting help, instead of continuing to hide and be miserable



    You don't have to ride the train all the way to a dramatic and tragic rock bottom. In fact, you won't get better if you can't get real.



    So hang up your drunken dancing shoes, my friend, and listen to my less-is-more conversation with Gillian Tietz.

    How To Forgive Yourself

    How To Forgive Yourself

    You can't drive your car looking in the rearview mirror so why do you live your life that way?



    If you want to move forward and create a new life, you have to look forward.



    In this episode, I'm bringing you a BIG solution to a BIG problem.



    It's big solution because it is so necessary for success in this journey. Not only the recovery journey, but the life journey!



    I KNOW IT'S NOT EASY. But it's totally worth the effort.



    Bottom line: Forgiving yourself helps you build self-esteem, trust with yourself, and creates self-respect.  AND - if you are working on forgiveness and acceptance on a regular basis, you won't have to work as hard when poo hits the fan.



    Meaning, it's easier to get quick relief when you are practicing healthy actions daily.



    So no more excuses. Let's do this.



    Trust me when I say, this could be the biggest game-changer for your sobriety.



    And to help you make a commitment to action, I'm giving you a step-by-step process to follow that breaks down a system and tells you exactly how to get started.



    If this was easy, everyone would do it and stay sober the first time they tried. You are with me right now because you want something more for your life. And, forgiving yourself is a foundation piece that is a must to grow your recovery.



    It doesn't happen overnight, but if you start taking action TODAY, I promise you great things can happen.

    The Recovery Struggle Is REAL

    The Recovery Struggle Is REAL

    There’s a really good reason you hear “the struggle is real”.



    Alcoholics and the alcohol-free alike hear the word “struggle” and think, “Ah, my familiar friend. I know exactly what the struggle feels like.”



    It feels like poo.



    You could *genuinely* love your recovery!



    But the hours it takes from the other areas of life that need you… plus the feeling there’s always something missing… are enough to steal the joy right out of the sobriety and life you love.



    So I'd like to introduce you to my guest on today's episode, Christi Cripps. 



    Christi's life changed when she was forced to face the fact that her drinking problem had taken over her life. And when she did… she experienced more growth in her life than ever before.



    When I heard this, I was like...



    ... I have to share this with my people!



    And man, oh man, my friend, she's sharing it all



    On today’s episode, Christi and I talk about:



    * Exactly how Christi recognized her problem AND what she did about it

    * How to identify what the heck is happening (instead of convincing yourself that “it’s fine”... when it’s not.)

    * How us achiever-types can begin to get comfortable getting help, instead of avoiding all the help out of pride (GUILTY)



    I don’t want you to build a successful recovery lifestyle only to arrive at the place you’ve always dreamed of being… and then wish you were anywhere else because you aren't getting relief.



    You don’t have to suffer all the way to sobriety. In fact, you won’t get to maintain sobriety if you feel like every step of the journey is a struggle.



    So hang up your sober-curious cleats, and listen to my empowering conversation with Christi Cripps.

    When You Get Sober, And Your Partner Doesn't

    When You Get Sober, And Your Partner Doesn't

    Are you frustrated with having to face a partner who is still drinking or using drugs, when you've made the decision to change your life?



    My guest on this episode is a master at putting together a powerful conversation with the partner you love, who is still on the drinking train.



    Beverly Buncher is a person in recovery, a family recovery life coach, and innovator of the BALM method- a program designed for families impacted by substance and other use disorders.



    In this episode, Beverly joins me to discuss what really works when trying to live with someone is stuck in their addiction.



    We talk about the specific type of conversation that works to propel change, and what doesn't.



    But more than that, Beverly and I also talk about how recovery gives us much more power in our lives than just the ability to stop suffering in addiction.



    When we direct our efforts, we have more freedom to decide on our next steps and building our future.

A podcast for a one size fits all 👌🏻

Angela podcast is the most inspiring podcast I have listened to both in the sober community as well as a positive life skill podcast. I even tell my non sober friends to listen because she is full of great advise and tips for living a happy life. As a young sober person I never thought I could find someone with such great tools that not only inspires me with every podcast but truly helps me see that sobriety is not only possible but fun! She is not only for females or only for people with years of sobriety she truly is a one size fits all and is relatable whether you have one day of sobriety , twenty years or are just trying to get past day 1. I look forward to her new podcast as they come out weekly and listen to all of the older ones in between to keep me inspired and learning . Angela you rock girl!!!!

Great podcast !

This was the very first podcast I listened to when I decided to get sober. This podcast has helped me in so many ways and I look forward to listening every week. It is so obvious that Angela puts a lot of time and work into every episode. It’s also obvious Angela really cares about her listeners. I will forever be grateful for this podcast. I’ve been sober now for 463 days.
