In this episode, Dennise and Keisha break down the importance of knowing your why. Identifying your motivations for sobriety will be an absolute game changer for staying accountable.

Episode 4 - Gray Area Drinking
Release Date: March 9, 2022
Do traditional substance use labels feel like they don’t fit? Society identifies substance use as black and white – extreme abuse/physical addiction or moderate/normal. What do you do when you feel like either extreme is not you? This can leave you feeling isolated and misunderstood as you begin to question your use. Enter ‘Gray Area Drinking’, a term that is gaining in popularity and one we both identify with. Pop on your headset and follow along as we breakdown gray area drinking, the stigma around labels and our personal experiences with AA.
Episode 5 - Binge Drinking & Blackouts
Release Date: March 16, 2022
Binge drinking and blackouts are synonymous in North American drinking culture. As teens, we jump into binge drinking as a means to escape, become more ‘adult’, and deal with the discomfort these transitional years bring. Binge drinking and blackouts are normalized and celebrated throughout teen and young adult culture and sets us up for increased high-risk behaviours, possible medical issues, and an increased risk of alcohol use disorder. Join us as we attempt to remember the things we actively forgot and the risks we were unaware we were taking each and every time we drank in excess.
Episode 6 - Is Moderation Possible?
Release Date: March 23, 2022
Moderation - is it possible? The million-dollar question for people who may consider themselves a ‘problem drinker’. Most people start their sober journey through multiple attempts at moderation. We create rules around how much, what days, places, people we can drink around. I know we did! Our failed attempts at moderation were part of our process of becoming fully abstinent from alcohol.
