AA is considered by many to be the ideal treatment approach for alcoholism, of all types, and really for substance abuse, in all forms.
If you’ve put up with me for this long, you may not be shocked to learn that I don’t believe there are many catch-alls in the world. Whether it’s treatment methodology, blanket statements, or mindsets. Or pants.
I was #blessed to be joined by Kim (from People Are Wild) and Karla* (from Go Postal), for a very honest, vulnerable and genuine conversation about what it means to experience alcoholism, as a woman, and what it means to try to pursue help.
This is the first time I have deliberately covered the same topic more than once, and yet there is sadly little overlap between Episode 22 and this one. There’s just too much to say, and too many ways to say it.
So hang in there. It’s a lot.
*I don’t identify Karla’s podcast in the show, because I remembered to get permission to get her name, but forgot to ask about the show. She has given me the thumbs-up. Just so’s you know.
