High Functioning Alcoholism, Season 2 Ep.24

6/19/2023
This topic sparked an interesting discussion about how we define what it means to be a High Functioning Alcoholic. Is this term contributing to the stigmas society has about what it looks like to have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol? High functioning perpetuates the idea that its ok to reward ourselves for our accomplishments at the end of the day with alcohol. Are we using the fact that we are high functioning as an excuse to continue to drink? This term can actually be the thing holding you back from reaching your true potential. We shouldn't see this term as a positive when in reality were just getting by trying to accomplish the things society pressures us to. We are challenging the notion that you can be high functioning when you are drinking, as we believe these 2 ideas are a complete contradiction. What do you think?

Warning Labels, Are we reading them? Season 2 Ep.23

6/12/2023
In this weeks episode we touch on all things with a WARNING label. A somewhat controversial topic but one we believe is extremely important to bring awareness to. There can be many dangers when mixing alcohol with medication, even simple over the counter medications can effect you differently when mixed with alcohol. We are by no means experts on this subject but we are asking the questions, are people paying attention to warning labels on prescription medications? Are they reading the pamphlet of information that comes with their medication? Is your doctor asking questions about your alcohol consumption when prescribing you medication? And in future will we see warning labels on alcohol bottles like we have on cigarette packages? We are having a sensitive and serious conversation about of these things and more.

Kim Kearns, On the Edge of Shattered, Season 2 Ep.10

11/27/2022
In episode 10 it was great to meet our guest Kim Kearns a fellow sober and strong Mom and Podcaster. Kim just released her 1st book "On the Edge of Shattered", a memoir of her experience discovering freedom through sobriety. Kim shares her personal struggle with ending her unhealthy relationship with alcohol which like many had started in her youth. We found Kim very relatable as she reveals how she fell victim to the "Mommy Wine Culture" and the belief her drinking was "normal" as she was surrounded by her drinking friends. With her supportive husband by her side, Kim was able to put together the shattered pieces to find her path to sobriety. Connect with Kim on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/asoberandstrongmom or https://www.instagram.com/kbkearns Find out more about her and her book on Kim's website : https://www.kimberlykearns.com **Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this episode are not professional or medical opinions.
