Episode 1 - Alcohol Ain't My Mate!
Episode one. ‘Alcohol Ain’t My Mate!’
Today Vicky and Lucy discuss that very personal and awkward moment when long-time heavy drinkers self-reflect, and admit their good old buddy booze is no longer working. Like so many people both Lucy and Vic ignored numerous wake up calls and continued their destructive drinking patterns for years. But, as you’ll hear, imagining a life beyond the bottle seemed so unfathomable that they both suffered in silence until alcohol caused extreme anxiety and led to some very questionable behaviour.
So, when is it ok to ask for help? And what does it mean to be sober curious? This episode is all about reaching out, getting some answers and changing the cycle of destructive behavior.
Episode 2 - Telling People
This week Vic and Lucy discuss that super-duper awkward moment you decide to tell people you no longer partake in a tipple. For some this can be one of the most difficult steps to take on this sober path, so hard in fact, that it might feel easier just to keep on drinking. Vic and Lucy describe what this moment looked like for them, give you some tips on how to reveal all and why they were both pleasantly surprised how friends and family responded. So, if you’re not quite ready to shout about sobriety from the top of the Aldi carpark, then have a listen and get some inspiration. Join them today as they too learn how to feel the awkward and do it anyway!
Episode 3 - Boredom, boring, bored, bored, bored!
On this episode Vicky and Lucy discuss the correlation between choosing an alcohol-free life and becoming boring. Why are the two so closely related and is it possible to shake off this negative reputation?
So what can you do to change your perspective? How long will it take before the fear of being boring is flushed away down the bog with that last bottle of wine and is it really possible embrace the boring?
As Vic and Lucy know, sober is boring by default, but, there's good news! Life without beer goggles for both these podium hogging party girls is.... better.
So if you're in need of a giggle and some sober inspiration then this is the podcast form you.
