What was worse? The physical hangover or the emotional one? Hmmm. Lucky for us, both are a thing of the past. But in this episode we chose to spotlight the emotional hangover because it often ties into negative self-talk which doesn’t always just disappear just because you stopped drinking.
We are joined this week by Blair Sharp, aka @sobreityactivist, who talks to us about how the emotional hangovers seem to have gotten progressively worse before the end. Hear her tell her warstory of what it was like before, what happened and why she finally decided to be Alcohol Free (AF).
We had a hell of a good time talking to Blair and the conversation ended up going a few different places, including back to Junior English.
Thanks for coming on Blair and sharing your story!!
