A Rocky Road to Sobriety
Show Notes

Clancy Martin joins host Jamie Brickhouse as our Soberlebrity guest. He is a philosopher, a novelist, and a recovering alcoholic with a journey that's nothing short of extraordinary. With his most recent publication being his memoir entitled ‘How Not to Kill Yourself’. 

Clancy's battle with addiction was a relentless one. He struggled with alcoholism for years, and it wasn't until January 1, 2009 that he took the courageous step to embrace sobriety. The decision marked a turning point in his life, but it didn't come without its fair share of challenges.

Ultimately, it was through acceptance and surrender that Clancy was able to shed the obsession with alcohol and overcome his suicidal ideations. These two fundamental principles of recovery paved the way for his transformation and newfound hope. 

Clancy Martin's journey is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. It reminds us that even in our darkest moments, there is hope for restoration and healing. His story serves as an inspiration for anyone struggling with addiction and as a reminder of the power of sobriety and human connection in the face of life's most challenging battles.
