    #71 Hello Someday: A Coffee with Casey McGuire Davidson

    #71 Hello Someday: A Coffee with Casey McGuire Davidson

    This week I'm having coffee with Casey Davidson, sober coach and host of the Hello Someday podcast! Casey is 8 years sober and she's sharing her story with us this week. Her journey really speaks to the fact that drinking is progressive; it all started off fun and kind of funny, until it wasn't anymore. By the time Casey got sober, she had a successful career and was married with kids, but her drinking was bringing down her mental health and holding her back from living her best life. In this conversation she shares how sobriety transformed her life, and what worked for her to make it stick!

    #68 A Coffee with Kelly U

    #68 A Coffee with Kelly U

    This week I'm having coffee with Kelly U! Kelly is a content creator I've been following for years and I was so excited to get to have this conversation with her! She has been sober from both alcohol and weed for nearly 4 years and in this episode we chat all about her sobriety journey. We also talk about numbing, sitting with our feelings (and ourselves!) in sobriety, friendships, letting go of what others think about us, allowing our identities to evolve in recovery, and so much more!

Thank you!

Found this podcast around my 6 month mark while looking for some sober inspiration/motivation. I immediately felt connected to everything discussed and now listen in the mornings to start my day in a positive way. Sobriety for me has been a sometimes lonely experience, and to hear someone explain all the feelings, experiences, etc that I’ve been going through has given me such a sense of community and validation. So, thank you!!!!

Reborn

Omg Maddie - literally on my day 9 and everyday as been getting easier. Just listened to the ep with Kelly U and you said “I can’t go back, because I know too much now”
I am learning more about myself and my sobriety by listening to Happiest Sober - without feeling annoyed or like it’s being shoved down my throat. I’m genuinely grateful to be Happiest Sober 🩷🌸💕🦖🐸🌱🫶🏼🌼🐳🌷🐞

Best sobriety hype girl around

I found this podcast around 6 weeks ago when I decided to explore sobriety and have found Madeline to be a breath of fresh air. Her content is informative and honest delivered in a relatable and positive manner.
