Always keeping a clean table and good company. One of the biggest rewards of sobriety, for us, has been how many genuine and nice people we’ve met along the way. Pictured here with our pals @brokendollarsuk at @bikeshedmc - sharing our passions for motorcycles, rock and roll and of course, having a damn good laugh. . Tip - You become the average of those you hang around with..choose wisely! . See you at #bikeshedlondon2019 guys!

Zo. Even een moment van dankbaarheid. Van reflectie. En van trots. Twee jaar geleden werd ik 35 jaar, en dat vond ik een mooi symbolisch moment om me met Helder Helen in te schrijven bij Kamer van Koophandel. Ik wíst toen al dat daarin mijn weg besloten lag. Mijn missie om de wereld minder ziek te maken. Nu, twee jaar later, heb ik een volle praktijk en ben ik iedere dag bezig met die passie. Met mensen. Ik ‘werk’ iedere dag met hart en ziel aan het begeleiden van hun processen. En wat voel ik op dit moment een Intense Dankbaarheid. Omdat ik eind 2016 nog op de bodem van de put zat, me afvragend of het niet beter was een einde te maken aan mijn misère. Wanhopig. Op mijn knieën gestort en biddend tot ‘wist-ik-veel-wie-of-wat’ om me uit de ellende te halen. Uit dat gevoel van existentiële leegte en eenzaamheid. De overtuiging dat het me nooit zou lukken om een ‘normaal’ leven te leiden en uit de greep van drank en drugs te komen maakte me radeloos. Hoe mooi is het dan dat ik vandaag, een dag na mijn 37e verjaardag, barst van het vertrouwen in mezelf? Dat het geluk me toelacht? Het leven me omarmt en de wereld aan mijn voeten ligt? Dat ik me vrij voel? Ik leerde afgelopen jaren dat ik ‘het’ uit mezelf kan halen. Dat vervulling ín mezelf zit en ik het niet in iets hoef te zoeken of bij iemand hoef te halen. Dat een rijkdom. Voor mij. Het goede nieuws? Als ik het kan, kan iedereen het. Én het is nooit te laat. . . 📸 @chantal.spieard voor #vrouwmagazine . . #sobrietyrocks #onedayatatime #wearetheluckiest #soberlife #recovery #recoverywarrior #tribe #youbeyou #12steps #wedorecover #alcoholicsanonymous #narcoticsanonymous #soberissexy #nooitmeereenkater #herstelheldin #attitudeofgratitude #lightworker at Utrecht, Netherlands

ELEVATE YOUR LIFE Group ENROLMENT just opened up!! 💫 . From experience, when we are on the BRINK of expansion, we are faced with a split second decision that can & will change the trajectory of our lives forever. >> What does that mean? It means whenever we are faced with an opportunity to truly UP-LEVEL and go big in life, our ego will supply us alllll the reasons why it can't and won't work for us. >> If we are lucky, our intuition, Soul (or gut) will speak loud enough to override the doubtful ego mind. When that happens, our faith triumphs over our fear and in a split-second we choose a new possibility for ourselves. New actions = new results. No new actions = no new results. >> You have arrived at a powerful choice point in your life. You have an opportunity to say yes to all the things your heart wants to experience. An opportunity to show yourself you love yourself TOO MUCH to settle for anything less. >> You have come this far and have been through so much. Now is YOUR time to give yourself permission, push the ego mind aside and give yourself one of the greatest gifts you ever could. >> Link in bio to learn about this opportunity to join in on Elevate Your Life - for the very first time in group enrollment!💕🙌🏻 . This means a powerful sisterhood of women are coming together & kicking things off at the beginning of June🌞🌴💃🏻 . Feel free to email or DM me with questions😘 . . . #followyourjoy #soulpreneur #elevateyourlife

When I was a child, I had a mom who was an alcoholic and didn’t love me. Anxiety and depression hit me at an early age which led to addiction and an ugly life I lived! Fast forward to today and I’m a three year recovering addict! I’m also a mom, a mom who loves her child more than anything! Motherhood is a million different things but I would never change this crazy roller coaster ride for anything in the world! Tomorrow I’m going live to talk about the book I wrote and it’s on my website! A lot of people have been asking about my book so if you are looking for a good book to read, go to www.lifenutshell.com and order your copy today! #realshit #momlife #addiction #addicted #drugaddiction #drugawareness #sobriety #mylife #childhoodmemories #childhoodtrauma #imamommy #imblessed #blessings #godslove #bookstagram #authormom #authorsofinstagram #autobiography #toddlerlife #beamazing #momstruggles #momsofinstagram #momlove #motherhoodunplugged #motherhood #sobrietyrocks #sober #soberlife #cleanandsober

This is me and my mum-in-law. It really sucks that I lost my own mum to cancer so young💔 Little did I know that my mum asked this beautiful lady to take care of me and she sure has. She cheers me on. Believes in me. Reminds me to always remember my worth. Lets me know I'm safe. She's in my gratitude list today 😄 On another note, I'm really looking forward to seeing my recovery therapist tomorrow. Anxiety been through the roof the last few days!😲I have so much more energy these days and it's taking my mind a while to catch up and be in the same place! Makes me think how much damage alcohol did to my body and mind when I see so much changing even after 9.5 months. #recovery #wecanrecover #wedorecover #blessed #grateful #muminlaw #family #loved #therapy #mentalhealth #healyourlife #sober #soberwoman #soberwarrior #soberaf #soberme #sobercommunity #soberrevolution #sobriety #sobrietyrocks #drylife #youcandoit #inspire #believeinyourself at Nambucca Heads, New South Wales

I’m coming up on 3 years of sobriety this month and I’ve been reflecting on how much being sober has impacted my life. My self esteem, my goals, my health and my relationships are all things that have thrived since I’ve been sober. I’m so thankful and proud of where I’m at. I recently met a wonderful badass kind vibrant human who makes me feel so deserving and loved. She went above and beyond to acknowledge my triumph over addiction, this book of poems has been one of my favorites for years and she gifted this to me along with a handwritten card that brought me to tears. I can’t help but think our paths were meant to cross. The universe knew I needed a friend like her. these are the real connections and interaction we all need. So I drink my tea with my book of poems about to welcome our third child into this world 3 years sober and I feel beyond stoked for this new chapter in my life🖤 . . #sobrietyrocks #sobrietyissexy #alcoholawareness #soberlife #selflove #selfworth #proud #reflecting #livingmybestlife #stillahotmess #3yearssober #igotthis #thriving #weallhavedemons #milkandhoney

I was listening to a podcast today all about the concept of DHARMA and I just can't stop thinking about how grateful I am that I seem to have found mine. ❤🌻⠀⠀ After college I was torn between following the path of creativity (filmmaking, specifically) or activism, but the Peace Corps didn't turn out to be right for me and then I just wanted to travel, which the restaurant and bar industry made it easy to do.⠀⠀ Several random jobs, a dozen countries, and 1000s of alcoholic beverages later, I found myself getting sober and wondering what MORE there was to life. Suddenly I couldn't just tolerate the easy but also soul-sucking paycheck anymore. 💵⠀⠀ By just putting one foot in front of the other, taking the next right steps on my recovery journey, saying yes to opportunities as they came up, and boldly daring to travel the world, I started to connect the dots. 🗺🌎⠀⠀ What I'm doing today truly feels like my life's purpose. ⠀⠀ I teach yoga and lead retreats for people in recovery. I work with people one-on-one as an Ayurvedic Recovery Coach to help them expand and uplevel their lives in sobriety! 💕🕉Sometimes I feel like an imposter but at least I don't feel STUCK and bored!⠀⠀ I know this job I've created for myself will evolve and change and grow, but right now I'm so happy that it's more aligned than any other job or "career" I've ever been in! 👩🏻🎤⠀⠀ My question is:⠀⠀ What are YOU bringing to the world that only you can bring? What unique combination of skills, talents, life experiences, and interests make it so that ONLY YOU can give this message?⠀⠀ If you don’t know yet, and you feel like you’re wandering lost, or head butting up against resistance in doing something that’s not you’re dharma, know that you are IN IT, ON THE PATH. The only way to figure it out is to live through some things that aren't aligned in order to figure out what IS aligned. If you're feeling lost and like you'll never figure it out, shoot me a message! I'd love to hear about your journey and see if I can provide some insight. 🙏🏻⠀⠀ at Grand Canyon, Arizona, United States

Exercise is not punishment for eating and you do not have to earn your food. We’d be best served to not obsess over a single meal and instead focus on what we do the other 364 days of the year because what we do on those days are what have the greatest impact; not a single meal, no matter how large and calorie laden it may be. I needed this reminder today because this is an old way of thinking for me and it always left me feeling defeated & helpless, which for me only perpetuated the cycle of overeating followed by over exercising. Bottom line: Exercise is good for you, but make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons. A few meals isn’t worth obsessing over. It’s the things we do over and over for the long-term that matter most. . . #loveyourlife #sobrietyrocks #soberfun #beyoutiful #progressoverperfection #eatwellbewell #comforteating #bingeeating #emotionaleating #intuitiveeating #mindfuleating #balanceddiet #foodaddict #eatingdisorderrecovery #bingeeatingrecovery #stresseater #goodvibes #tryingtobehealthy #eatrightnotless #joyisinthejourney #healthyhabits #nourishmentvitality #emotionaleating #selfcarefirst #foodaddiction #eatbetterfeelbetter #bingeeatinghelp #spiritualhealing #healthyeating #findyourbestself

Getting sober is truly a miracle. I was hopeless, with no end in sight of my addiction and alcoholism. My dad used to tell me when I was in my 20’s that I would never see my 40’s. Those words went on one ear and out the other. I kept on drinking until God intervened in the form of the police. I had been pulled over for my second DUI with possession of drugs for the second time in 3 weeks. That was in 2002 and I was in my early 30’s. By God’s grace I have not had a drink since and have passed my 40’s.

There is a tremendous freedom, ease, and comfort that comes when we aren't fighting the world - or ourselves.⠀ ⠀ To quote further from that paragraph: "We feel as though we had been placed in a position of neutrality---safe and protected... We are neither cocky, nor are we afraid. That is how we react so long as we keep in fit spiritual condition."⠀ .⠀⠀ #12StepLifestyle⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ #keepcomingback #alanon #getsober #soberfun #celebraterecovery #cleanandserene #cleanandsober #cleantime #justfortoday #narcoticsanonymous #odaat #huglife #sobernation #soberlifestyle #recoveryquotes #recoverywarrior #addictiontreatment #recoveringaddict #soberaf #sobermom #sobernation #soberliving #sobermovement #partysober #sobrietyrocks #wedorecover #basictext #bigbook

When I was an adolescent, prior to using alcohol and other drugs, my behaviors were almost always aligned with the right side. This was who I was and still am today. Throughout my childhood years, and even more into early adulthood, I experienced severe emotional pain and trauma. I tried alcohol at a very early age and knew immediately for me, it was an escape from self. I could never drink without getting drunk, even as early as age 14, I was a blackout drinker. Knowing this I tried not to drink very often during my marriage as it always ended up with my having to clean up. After my divorce at age 27, My drinking became more frequent. Somehow I managed to “function” successfully in business life, maintaining a medical sales career and keeping up the facade although my black out drinking was increasing. At age 30, I began to see real consequences and changes in my behaviors, relationships I once treasured, I had lost. Loss of career, multiple arrests, hurting my family and friends. I felt pain, shame, guilt and alcohol became my best friend and worst enemy, As this relationship progressed so did the consequences. If confronted, I lashed out, became the victim, played the blame game, deployed every behavior/defense/defect listed. By age 34, my alcoholism or substance use disorder was severe. In addition, I had discovered crack cocaine and I had no doubt become every one of my character defects. I had become someone I never wanted to be!! Today, Recovery is a way of life. Recovery is who I am. Recovery aligns with my moral compass. I have no desire to drink or use drugs, and haven’t had for the last 9 plus years but I still see my “disease” everyday. It just shows up in different ways, it tells me I’m not enough, I’m not worthy of x,y or z. Grateful, I have a choice today, to confront those thoughts, be honest with myself and someone else (or you guys 🤗), remain open and willing and live a life I’m proud of, a life in recovery. Sure beats the alternative! 💯🙌🏼🙏🏻💪🏼

I have been using drugs and alcohol since I was 11 years old. Started with weed, acid, extacy, and booze. Later it progressed to cocaine, then progressed to crack. By 17 I started using meth and heroin. I am 24 now and have been clean for almost 6 months. This is the longest I have been clean off every substance since I was 11 years old. The picture on the left is from over 2 years ago before I hit my "bottom" and went into treatment. The others are in now in everyday life. . If your wondering how I stayed clean, its because I followed the suggestions from NA and AA meetings. I go to lots of meetings, I got a sponsor, and am working the steps. Relapse doesn't have to be apart of your story. Recovery is here for you if you want it, just gotta take certain steps! Love to hear from you. Love Sbooty123 xox . Thank you so much for sharing your story with us Shawna-Lee! To share yours, send us a DM with your written or video testimony 💛

SET BACKS IN RECOVERY BUT DIDN’T GIVE UP!! - I always respect people in recovery who give it a good go. - As an addict our whole existence is based on bullshit. It takes a lot of hard work to change as a person. - In this post I want to speak about 4 very different people, but people who have have had set backs In recovery but fought back. - I've literally been side by side with an addict for the last few years. He’s not just my partner at Whysup but one of my closest friends. I may have been in front of him in my recovery but I have learnt off him and took inspiration from the determination he shows. He had set backs early on in his recovery and I wondered if he he would bounce back. He’s gritted his teeth and I now learn off him every day. - @shinnyshowlive is someone Liam and I massively look up to for his fighting spirt and his approach to recovery. Shinny has been honest when he’s relapsed but has show great strength to fight back and now helping lots of other struggling addicts. He’s able to show that passion in @crossfitanonymity. - @jademac_uk Is someone who is a friend of Whysup and and been massively supportive to us. Jade had to find her feet in recovery early on but is now smashing her recovery as well as being a mum. Jade is a good person and someone we are rooting for to do well. We know she always helps lots of people, especially women who have reached out. - @liamr1989 I met when I was doing some work at Gordon Moody. He was in all sorts of trouble and said he wanted to get help. In all honesty I knew he wasn’t at his rock bottom. He left rehab and relapsed and got in a bigger mess. He fought back and is now almost coming up to his year pin at GA. This is something he should be very proud of. - All these 4 people are very different people but have all show grit and determination. - We are all people who f #*ked up and are fighting back everyday to make sure we don’t go back there. - It doesn’t matter if we have set backs, what matter is we keep on going!! - To these 4 and then many more people I know in recovery, I salute you! 👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻. - #WHYSUP

✌️✌️✌️it’s tragic, but it took young White kids dying from overdose to wake the country up. 💯💯💯 Finally...people start paying attention to substance use disorders. For the first time the country turned their attention to SUD treatment and recovery. And that will ultimately lead to the industry disruption we’ve needed for 20 years. As we emerge from the shadows and talk openly about SUD issues, the infallible assumptions and generally accepted practices of the industry will be rejected out of hand! Hitting bottom...going to rehab...90 in 90...intensive outpatient...relapse means rinse and repeat...etc... There is a shelf life on this model. An expiring shelf life. Inevitable. The public is appalled when they see the reality of how it works. New solutions will emerge out of new demand. It will take a little longer due to enmeshed systems but it’s inevitable. Most likely the new solutions will involve unorthodox and nontraditional partnerships. A new business model and changing landscape around reimbursement will help move this along. My personal opinion or my personal philosophy on SUD and recovery has nothing to do with this reality. I loved going to Blockbuster back in the day..... Providers holding tight to the legacy treatment model is analogous to the blockbuster fiasco. They doubled down on the video store franchise model at the front end of Netflix launch. They laughed at Netflix. Anyone remember Blockbuster? People are probably laughing at my ideas as well? God bless America God save the queen. God bless Blockbuster. May they Rest In Peace. 💯
