Allie K. Campbell, host of the Youtube Channel Allie K Campbell, previously Young Dumb and Sober, talks about how Covid-19 and the coronavirus helped her to lean into different recovery paths more than she would have been able to normally. She talks about how quarantine had the surprising impact of bringing her closer to Alcoholics Anonymous, where she is now actively seeking out more queer-affirming meetings. We talk about our journey with A.A., what it's like to have people say you have "terminal uniqueness," and horoscopes.  Some resources shared were Recovery 2.0 and Y12SR (Yoga 12 St ..read more

For him, that means avoiding things like alcohol, narcotics, and troublesome situations. Asa's story is a story of resilience: with only a few months of sobriety under his belt, he made a tragic mistake while completely sober.  His whole life changed in a matter of seconds.

Stay in the day. From Sarah, I heard a lot of the same things I have heard over and over again in the rooms of alcoholics anonymous. But what I also heard was that drinking and trauma can sometimes go hand in hand, and that dealing with anxiety and trauma can really help make staying sober easier. She really advocates for talking to trained professionals outside of a 12 step program, and being honest with your entire team, including your dentist, about the fact that you're in recovery.   This week we talk with Sarah of the Sober Gratitudes Podcast about her sober journey. She te ..read more
