Soberful is additive to my recovery.

I celebrated a five-year sober anniversary in January, 2020. It was about then I started listening to Soberful. The hosts’ recovery status, openness and clinical experience combine to make their’s one of the better recovery podcasts.

I encourage people touched by this problem to give this a listen. They are sharing some hard and essential truths about healthy living. Five stars, easy.

Excellent topics!

Love this podcast. They cover so many great topics. I have told friends about Veronica’s desire for a future where being sober is just as acceptable as being gluten-free. Only problem is that Chip’s audio is often very muffled and I have to turn it up loud to hear him. Maybe a better microphone?
