Pink cloud

Yesterday was a S**t day and I’m so happy I found your ‘pink cloud’ episode. You’re both so kind, knowledgeable and funny and this episode got me through this slight slump I’m in. I feel better days and growth are coming. 80 days alcohol free tomorrow

Fantastic and Honest

I started my sober journey out of despair, feeling total loss of control, fearful and broken. After day 3 and realizing that another attempt at moderating or changing my drinking was not going to work and I found AAs 12 step program then this podcast. I am on my 48th day of an alcohol free life and say I’m so excited for my future. Personally, I have had enough time with alcohol over the past 20+ years of my life to see how it was taking way more than giving. While I worry about social situations and future endeavors on how to handle things as a non-drinking outlier, I do not miss it at all. I know it was Poison and my body was slowly dying. Thank you Chip and Veronica for this amazing podcast!
