From Alcohol To Authenticity, With Special Guest Brittany Tonkavich

In today’s inspiring episode, we’re thrilled to share a heart-to-heart with Brittany Tonkavich, a former client of Christy’s. Her journey isn't just a story of sobriety; it's a raw, deep dive into finding herself amidst the unexpected turns in life.

Brittany kicks off with her life's mantra that struck a chord with us: "If it looks like the high life, it's probably the lie life." She opens up about her battle with alcohol, challenging the common belief that booze brings out our true selves. Her experiences paint a vivid picture of alcohol as a mask, hiding our authentic selves and leading her to seek truth and transparency in sobriety.

Brittany's courage in facing her innermost fears and embracing her true self is nothing short of inspiring. She reminds us that shedding our facades is where the real journey begins.

We touch on the importance of sharing such genuine stories, especially within the Christian community, to dismantle the stigmas around addiction and encourage empathy and understanding.

Brittany’s journey into sobriety is not just about abstaining from alcohol; it’s about the liberating journey of self-reclamation and the boundless freedom that follows.

For those keen to delve deeper into Brittany's thoughts and beautiful writing, we encourage you to visit her substack, “Somewhere By a Stream.” You can follow Britany on instagram @okthisismylifenow.
