Ass kickers!

Welcome BACK to the recovery series! Thank you for your patience as I had to put the project on hold for a couple of months, but I am so excited to share episode six with you. Jean McCarthy of the Unpickled Blog is with us.

Jean McCarthy thought she had it all figured out: go 100 miles an hour all day as a mom and business owner, then drink wine before bed to quickly de-stress and fall asleep. She had no idea that this perfect equilrium would evolve into addiction over the course of a decade. Now five years sober, Jean writes about her experiences as a person in recovery at unpickledblog.com and holds space for others to share their stories on The Bubble Hour podcast.

Here’s what you’ll hear on this episode:

  • Jean tells us her story of having a “high bottom”, and feeling different on the inside than how she was portraying herself on the outside.
  • Andrea asks Jean about her husband who is a “normie” (aka normal drinker/non-alcoholic). How did she tell him she needed to get sober? How did they and do they make that work?
  • Jean answers the question: What about that person who has a high bottom and just can’t seem to stay sober? They keep reminding themselves their life isn’t falling apart, so they give in to that glass of wine?
  • To program or not to program? If we someone chooses to not use a recovery program, what’s the one thing they need?
  • Jean shares one thing she’s proud of and one thing she’s struggling with.
