"From Bottles to Breakthroughs: A Journey Through Grief"

Updated: Sep 18, 2023

In this episode, we dive into the intimate journey of coping with grief and numbing with alcohol. Christy talks about losing her mother and how breaking free from alcohol became essential to her healing process.

We chat candidly about the numbing effects of alcohol, a substance that ultimately trapped Christy in a cycle of unprocessed grief. We talk about how sobriety can help offer the tools to sit with feelings and begin to process them. You'll hear personal revelations about how unaddressed grief can suffocate your emotional well-being, making the pain last longer.

We'll explore the misguided notion that alcohol can "solve" emotional pain, discussing how ‘mornings after’ still bring the same heartache, now intensified by hangover headaches and a feeling of constant sedation.

Listen in as we affirm how confronting the dark corners of grief ultimately allows light, peace, and profound gratitude to re-enter our lives.
