Once we get sober and stop drinking we become sane, rational individuals, right?  Wrong. Oftentimes the obsession that led us to drinking the way we did will follow us into other aspects of our lives. Shopping, gambling, money, sex, relationships and even exercise are things we can let take us over if we’re not at our spiritual best. Even exercise. Yes, even exercise. 

 

We are joined in this episode by our SoCal friend Kat S. who not only shares her warstory but knows all too well about how alcoholism can manifest in other ways outside drinking. She also happens to run two treatment facilities in California and now spends her time trying to be of service. 

 

Kat’s story is all too familiar while being completely original. Hear how the wisdom of someone she thought had more of a problem than her slapped her in the face and got her to think about her abuse differently. Wisdom comes from the strangest of places. 

 

Thank you Kat for coming on the show! (that “thank you” makes 18)
