The story of newly sober and clean Jesse Moskel overcoming his addictions while sharing the struggles of his own recovery.

Listen to humans talk honestly and openly about addiction of all types, shapes and sizes, from all over the planet.

You’ll meet world famous authors, experts, doctors, therapists, garden-variety drunks, teens, housewives and homeless junkies having candid conversations about the struggle to overcome a global epidemic.

There IS a solution to addiction, and I believe exposing and examining the problem from all angles, makes it possible to end this tragedy, once and for all.

    Girl Walks Out of a Bar (and Into a Beautiful Life) Author Lisa Smith Shares Her Incredible Recovery Story

    Girl Walks Out of a Bar (and Into a Beautiful Life) Author Lisa Smith Shares Her Incredible Recovery Story

    Lisa Smith embodies the very best definition of what’s possible in being a Recovery Author…
     
    Unlike some of the “low-bottom drunks” whose misery is plain to see, Lisa’s intelligence enabled her to thrive in a high-pressure corporate legal career, despite heavy alcohol and cocaine use.
     
    Her story is critical because it speaks to the “high-functioning” addicts and alcoholics out there who may be rationalizing their obsessive behaviors because they still have jobs, homes, cars, and have never been to jail or arrested.
     
    Not only is Lisa celebrating her 16th year of sobriety (on this episode’s publish date of April 5th, 2020), she has gone on to craft an incredible life, immersed fully in recovery.
     
    In this wonderfully candid episode, Lisa reveals how and why she wrote her book, “Girl Walks Out of a Bar” and delivers an inspiring report on how she’s parlayed her role from a C-Suite legal career into full-time endeavors, as a recovery advocate, podcast host, speaker and lawyer.
     
    Lisa is a trailblazer and passionate about breaking the stigmas around addiction and mental health issues, especially within the legal community.
    Lisa can be reached at lisasmithadvisory@gmail.com, as well as on Twitter, Instagram and on Facebook.

    In the wake of disaster, Devin discovered redemption and recovery.

Inspiration

I saw your story on locked up abroad on Hulu last night. Due to self isolation imposed with the pandemic I’m binge watching television. As a recovering addict myself, I totally relate to your story. I keep working the program and remember how far God and my recovery community has brought me. Thank you for this podcast and your ability to be so transparent. Recovery works if you work it!
Thank you Jesse!!
