This episode is with my wonderful and wise aunt Juanita. She began drinking in her teens, first seeking sobriety when she was 26. At that time she stayed sober for six years. Now armed with new tools and a stronger recovery plan, she is enjoying sobriety once again, as of January 1st, 2015. In our conversation, she shares with me insights gained from her recovery from alcoholism—from taking personal responsibility to cultivating gratitude by seeing all there is to appreciate in life.
She recommends soberrecovery.com as a wonderful resource for support, especially if you happen to be introverted.
