Thanks to Recovery Centers of America for sponsoring this session!
The Sobriety Diaries is a video podcast where we share powerful stories of recovery from a queer perspective- hosted by Nate Kelly. Nate is a recovering alcoholic and sober coach, 6 years from his last drink. His goal is to share the stories of other recovering alcoholics and addicts in hopes of helping those who may still be struggling. Nate's own story is one that is hard to believe unless you understand the alcoholic mindset. An alcohol related stroke at age 32, and yet the drinking continued.
You can find us wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts with new episodes every Sunday and Wednesday. Today’s conversation is with Author, Educator, Recovery Expert and Treatment Specialist TJ Woodward.
In 2017, TJ launched The Conscious Recovery Method, which is a groundbreaking and effective approach to viewing and treating addiction. The Conscious Recovery Method moves beyond simply treating behaviors and symptoms. It focuses on the underlying root causes that drive destructive patterns, while providing clear steps for letting go of core false beliefs that lead to addictive tendencies.
We also chat about our own journeys and as they relate to being queer. TJ provides amazing insight on my own experience and helps highlight outstanding shame that exists. You can find more at www.thesobrietydiaries.com & www.tjwoodward.com and www.consciousrecovery.com
