Alcohol Addiction

The Fire Fighters Charity

Drinking is a big part of life for many people, but where is the line between drinking socially and having a potentially dangerous addiction? That’s what we’re discussing in the latest episode of Shout!Podcast.

We speak to the Charity’s lead practitioner Andrea Trotman and psychological therapists Charlene Taylor and Izi Dragonetti in a roundtable talk about the impact alcohol addiction can have on others. They discuss the different ways an addiction may be sparked and how easy it is to get stuck in a harmful cycle.

Firefighter Owen Spiers shares how he battled alcohol addiction for more than 20 years, before finally overcoming it following a health scare. He reveals the warning signs he can now identify and how he’s feeling stronger than ever, having received help from the Charity.

Finally, we return to the roundtable to hear their thoughts on Owen’s experience, how it has many similarities to others they’ve seen and the different tools people can use to try and tackle an addiction.
