    Heroin at 17, Accessory to Murder Charge, Incarceration, Nude Twelve Step Meetings, Spell Casting & Motherhood; the WILD Life of Carmina Marie

    Today I am so honored to introduce you guys to Carmina! I have known Carmina in the rooms of Twelve Step recovery for several years and have always admired her. She started using heroin at 17 years old, traveled around the West Coast, landed in prison and finally got sober for the last time two weeks before being released from prison. Now 15 years sober, Carmina has built a successful sober living program, facilitates breath work sessions, is a mother and "remains malleable and teachable" to alternate forms of a Higher Power.

    Meth, Stripping, a Stolen Dildo and Tax Evasion! **TRIGGER WARNING Kellee Completely Redesigned Her Life & is Creating New Family Patterns for Her Son

    Meth, Stripping, a Stolen Dildo and Tax Evasion! **TRIGGER WARNING Kellee Completely Redesigned Her Life & is Creating New Family Patterns for Her Son

    **TRIGGER WARNINGS

    In this episode, Kellee speaks very openly and honestly about domestic violence, abuse and assault. Also at 1:03:00 I ask her to explain what a "hot rail" is in great detail! If this will trigger a craving for you, please skip ahead to about 1:10:00

    Today, I have the pleasure of introducing the Nod Pod family to Kellee Lengyel. Kellee landed in foster care at age six and was bounced around through the system and reluctant family members until the age of 18. Beginning work as a stripper, Kellee eventually progressed from weed to cocaine and meth and spent her early 20s in complete chaos and instability of active addiction. After becoming pregnant, she began making slow but steady changes to her life style and completely redesigned her life. Let me know what you guys think!

    The ONE Insane Jail Story I've Never Told, Smuggling a Meth Pipe into Jail, Learning the Jail "Rules" the Hard Way, and is "Rejection Protection?!" A Perspective Shift that Can Change Your LIfe

    The ONE Insane Jail Story I've Never Told, Smuggling a Meth Pipe into Jail, Learning the Jail "Rules" the Hard Way, and is "Rejection Protection?!" A Perspective Shift that Can Change Your LIfe

    Hey y'all! This is the ONE jail story I have yet to tell anywhere . Literally one of the craziest events of my entire life, and probably the wildest four days of my active addiction. As always though, there is purpose in the madness, and this story is no different. A few episodes ago my guest Kevin said that a "miracle" can just be a shift in perspective. I absolutely love that idea and today you and I are going to discuss the perspective shift that "rejection is protection." Typically when we are rejected for anything, or by someone, we feel it is based on our value - that we aren't "good enough." What if we can shift our belief system to believe that rejection is a good thing, and absolutely unrelated to our value? Let's talk about it! Let me know what ya'll think! DM on Instagram or email me chasingheroine@gmail.com - love you guys!

Loved your craziest jail story episode!!

I couldn’t stop listening i literally fell asleep listening to it bc it was nighttime i was so tired and wanted to finish! I love hearing people’s insane stories from using and although some people say this is glamourizing war stories i disagree! it reminds me why i continue to stay clean and what using was TRULY like bc sometimes as the years go on we forget how bad it really was! plus it’s just purely entertaining hearing other people’s stories of craziness and what they went thru! 😂 plus it shows how far you’ve come and what you overcame!!! it shows your strength and resilience. love your 3 mcflurry arrest stories and the beach house one where u were buried in the sand running from “cops on ATVs” 😆

The Promises…

This is by far the BEST pod out there if your looking for sobriety! Jeannine is an amazing example of open mindedness and her willingness, to be vulnerable and share her experience strength and hope, is inspiring on all levels. Like the guests she interviews, she is honest and raw and sharing the gift of sobriety- Thank you!! Never stop sharing this gift with the world!!!

Heartwarming and hilarious

I've been listening for a few years and look forward to Thursday's for a dose of inspiration, smiles, and healing. Jeannine is the real deal, incredibly brilliant, and such a spark of sunshine.
