In this episode I chat with the founder of sober social group Untoxicated, Faye Lawrence.
Faye faced her own decades long battle with alcohol ending up in a detox unit to wean off the booze, Faye went on to turn her life around through the support of online groups and the a lot of self healing. Realising the difference the support of like minded can make Faye set about connecting other sober people or people who just want to experience some social events without alcohol, her groups now run all over Australia and are helping so many people to "find their tribe".
We chat about her detox experience, working out your shit and facing trauma head on, realising we can do hard things, reframing your relationship with alcohol, healing from childhood trauma, reparenting and how sobriety gives you so much more than drinking ever did.
