Today I have another recovery episode for you, with my guest Kristi Coulter. I first learned about Kristi when an essay that she had written went viral, and if you haven’t read it yet, I encourage you to do so. Even if you’re not in recovery, the messages she shares are so powerful.
In this episode we discuss a lot of Kristi’s writings, including an essay she wrote about how to not drink at Thanksgiving, and she shares with us her story about her relationship with alcohol (and the road to recovery).
Kristi is an incredible writer and woman in recovery, and I’m so honored to have been able to speak with her and share this important conversation.
In this episode you’ll hear:
- All or nothing and should your drinking be binary? (10 minutes and 24 seconds)
- Kristi’s thoughts on whether liquor is a “feminist talisman” (16:40)
- How drinking really effects moms…(19:26)
- Her tips and strategies from her series on “How Not To Drink” (31:28)
- Yes – the world is more accommodating than you think to your sobriety! (36:16)
