Just one thing…

I have thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. There’s just one thing that doesn’t feel right: Veronica seems to have some sort of need to ‘push’ the alcohol-free, zero proof drinks. I share Chip’s attitude about this—I don’t see the point. If you are thirsty, there are plenty of things to drink besides a beverage that is mimicking what we have all had a struggle with. What in the world? Why the constant talk about this? Why encourage it? It seems very dangerous. Would you snort fake cocaine? I wonder if Veronica has some financial connection to a non-alcoholic drink manufacturer, which would be disappointing. I just notice that when she’s talking about this and Chip voices his opinion, Veronica seems to get a little uncomfortable, like she knows it’s not really a good idea and she’s not 100% sure about this, but she’s needs to ‘seem’ like it’s okay. Again, this just feels very dangerous for listeners, especially those who are newly sober (that’s not me).

Brilliant Dynamic Duo!

I am alcohol free (for 6 years) and found myself in a struggle. I have been listening to this podcast in recent months and it has been powerful to uncovering self work I still need to do. I have begun the work now, and it has already made a huge difference. Appreciate you guys immensely.
