"Drink for before. You're right and you to also I think would really important in your book. You also talk about a lot of the therapy that you did. You did. Trans Cranial magnetic stimulation for depression and anxiety. I mean you really worked to help yourself. Yeah definitely I was willing to explore anything and what's kind of. I don't know if it's funny your ironic about that as I had looked into. CMS BEFORE I got sober. Because I was looking for a way to feel better and still at that time wasn't equating alcohol to that at all. I do all these things but still want to keep my y so that got something I kind of had in my back pocket. Get for a really long time since I. You know that was obviously super help fall and talked a lot about that. And I've had other friends who've actually tried and having the treatments and it's worked wonders for them again. I think there's nothing that's one-size-fits-all and there's nothing that's the end. All be all of everything but there is so much more out there to explore four men. I guess I was willing to look at before I ever right and yeah there's so much support out there and there's help and there's things that we didn't even know ten years ago or our mental health and our wellbeing to be able to take advantage of that so if there is someone out there maybe maybe a woman and a mom who is struggling. What would you wanNA tell him? I would say talk to somebody and even if that is a a close friend your mom a therapist top to somebody just for the right now. I think immediate action is really important and and you don't have to make a plan for your whole life right now if you are contemplating the fact that you got horrible anxiety or you've you got postpartum depression or you're having a problem. Whatever it is like you don't have to make a plan for your whole life in one day so baby steps and the again I think for me was talking to one person who then giving the next step gave the next step so find a trusted friend and just reach out and I? I think that goes for really everybody to. If you don't feel like you have a thing is to be aware of your friends. Who are probably going through something and not to be afraid? Hey to check on people. I know that sounds silly. But if you I can think of many times and I've had conversations with my friends since you've said you know I noticed this and I I wanted to say something but I didn't where we're kind of afraid to step on toes or afraid to offend people and so we're not there in a way that we really can't be so if you're struggling may reach out and if you think someone might be struggling ask yourself how you can ear awesome.

"Face and confront with my kids but it also was the biggest blessing so like I said I did get a Dui and one of the consequences of came without was a breathalyzer in my car. And so for me. My thinking was okay. This is the first time I'm going to have to confront this with my kids because now I mean I'm their chauffeur. I drive them everywhere and my kids are very young at the time but the oldest two were nine eleven and I picked them up from school and I just said Hey I got in trouble. You're not supposed to drink and drive. It's against the law. I did get behind the wheel after drinking. And this is my consequence and it was really eye-opening sing for me. Because it wasn't a surprise is to the kids like they were aware that I have drank and driven before you know with them in the car and so their awareness was soul-crushing right. That even still for six months after that it took another six months to get sober even after that but it forced me to have those conversations conversations and my nine year old at the time was said why do people drink then if you can get in trouble for it off. It's bad for your health if you wake up when you're in a bad mood if you're describing all of these things describing me with a hangover things that I thought again I was holding it. All together defected the fact that they knew so much more than I thought they did was really difficult but because it happened at that time there adult able to see the transformation nation. And we've been able to have those conversations that I we used to have cabinets filled with wine glasses and now we don't have any cabinet still declined and now we don't of any and why I've made that choice and why they can make a difference to that. It's not just a a requirements and I didn't realize how how much was placing that on my kids like when you grow up. You're going to be a drinker too. That's what people do. It didn't occur to me that was really putting that on them right and while I mean I would imagine that is incredibly painful to realize like they saw so much more than you thought but then it also sounds. Sounds like it's an incredible motivator for you to continue your journey of change. It is. It's for me just personally in our family. I know it's been a huge go as saying and I'm able to have conversations kids now who two of them are teenagers now and they have to deal with the stuff and air out in the world now if the knowledge that that it is a choice you can make that. It's not just a given that eventually you'll be around kids and you'll drink and then you'll grow up you'll be twenty one and you'll drink and it's not that's not necessarily the path they have to take and they know based on what I've gone through that it's not necessarily positive and so they don't have those same associations and I think thing for me too I really wouldn't see on a mission but I really want to send the message to other women that we need to tell better stories for other women about what alcohol does and what it is and it's not mommy juice and it's not a mommy's time out and it's not a required accessory to being a mother right and that's what I loved about your book to is that it really did bring that in such a way. It just laid out all on the table like you're finding finding honesty is right there Bam and I think for other women out there to hear your story. Yeah I think it will benefit a lot of people really think that's going to be helpful for many people. I hope so I think part of it too. Is You know I'm not out there. Trying to trying to judge people or be preachy or say. I don't want to rid the world alcohol. I mean it's illegal substance if people can enjoy it if they want to what I really want to get to the bottom of is women thinking this is something I have to do to survive their kids and not from the place of being a know it all but having been through it and being in that place where I just cannot wait to get to dinner time so I can have glass of wine so I can tolerate. What's going on in my life and now being in a place where even through the chaos and kids can be annoying? I mean take. It's difficult right like it is difficult. There's no sugar coating it with that. There is a way to not just survive it but enjoy it and lean into it and all those things that you're coming out you're missing and just a pain in parenthood and motherhood in a different light. You don't have to be be a drunk mom to be able to tolerate it right that you can find support you can get support one more question. I had was. What was that moment where you were are you reached out for help or you got support so for me it was? I was always following people because again I knew deep down I had google. Can you read that in the book that I googled alcoholic so many times I so I had those people were followed sober women so were moms and I had had one friend who I knew was AA now. Of course since then I found tons of friends who were in A.. I just wasn't willing to look at you. Always find what you're looking at right. But I had her a number and my phone and I consider collaring her Sony time so it was really the most mundane morning waking up again hung over having blackout route days and just knowing I cannot wait one more day like I'm really just eliminating myself and calling her and she knew exactly why I was Wiscon- already at a time yes she totally new and I'd had conversations asked questions but she never she was just is there. She never was judged me or you know she never told me what to do and it was when I called and she said he had gone to a meeting tonight and love free to come with me and that was all it took in so I feel like that's part of why I have been so open about. It is had she not been open about her sobriety. I wouldn't and have known to reach out to her in the first place. And that's been such a connecting with other women and had other women reach out to me and say Gosh what do I do. I'm not into a is there something else I can do. Or whatever just to start that conversation because you can't be supportive if you don't tell you what you're going through right. Yeah Yeah Yeah. And so while so she was there that really going to open the door for you. Yeah absolutely and again. If she hadn't been so open open about her struggle. You know you just don't know what's going to happen but I know that moment like she was there for a reason for me and I try to be there for other people for that the reason because it did totally change the trajectory of my life. Right well so tell me a little bit about your life now so again. Hindsight's twenty twenty. But I wish if I had known before I had kids like how great those little things could be. It's made me slow down so much and before four I stopped drinking my worry was. I'm not going to be the fun mom I'm not going to be. It was obviously more selfish thinking. I'm not going to be invited to all the things. Things are not going to have all the fun. I'm not going to do this to do that. And that was my worry more than now where I am. I don't hear about any of that stuff. What I care about? And what my priorities priorities. Now have changed so much. I definitely put my sobriety. I but my priorities with my family and I was never so focused on them before which is a hard realization. But when you're so deepened addiction you put that before everything else and since I put my sobriety I I've been able to be there in a way that I really didn't know what kind of appearance I could be and I'm not perfect. I screw up all the time but my best day when I was drunk you you know is still worse than my worst day. Now my life is just is so much better and I'm able to deal with things in the same exact things happen. You know stressful. Supposing life things people die people are sick people things happen in life still. They did before I got sober but I have a whole toolbox. It's now I've got my program. I have meditation. I have read books. I do all the things that.

"S I am. Emily Emily and I have been sober three years now and this book really came about through that process. I got to the point where I was thinking. How the heck did I get here? I started doing a lot of reading a lot of writing. And this is how it came about. So I am certified professional recovery coach and became so during this process of learning about myself and figuring out my own addictions and my own history and also Mama five and I live in Seattle awesome so to me listening to your story because I listened to your book on audible and it's a pretty harrowing story. Yeah it's a lot to take in. It's a lot and so tell me a little bit about how all this started or I guess going to the point where you started finding ending that alcohol and stuff started to work for you you know I would say obviously hindsight's twenty twenty. You know I can look back and say you know the first. This time I drank. I realized that it affected me differently than it did by Pierce I could tell that my friends were really drinking because it made them you know they thought it made them more fun or Funnier or let loose a little bit and for me. I really have the spilling that it made me who I was met that it was finally able to be who I was and so that really was a theme then constantly through a whole life course didn't realize it until much later when I was figuring out my addictions and how they all came about. But that's what really kept it going is that I thought it unlocked potential. It may be a better mom. It made me a better writer. Made me a better. Whatever the navy talk to people more easily be more social? Be More Fun so I think that's really. It stemmed from just that core belief from when I was younger and it really just weaved its way until so many areas in my life right and and in the book. You kinda talk about how I use. The word like lied a lot to present a different print image to people to present something else and the addiction in a way allows you to continue that right. I think fundamentally it was a trouble with being honest with myself and with others and that is kind of a camaraderie found with other people who've gone through addictions is the secrecy of it so for me it was really. It was covering up either. What I didn't like about myself even from being very little the little white lies that I would say that just to make up for who for what I thought I lacked even at such a young age and the drinking? You know these other other behaviors really helped me cover up who I was or what I thought I was lacking so it really came down to like just generally as self esteem self-confidence disliking myself for some reason and so the alcohol started to help with that. So how did this grow because it got bigger and bigger right. I would say it was easy to hide. When I was younger? Known Highschool other people are drinking and there are other people who are doing stupid things when they drink and even if they're not addicts and that's just a time in history for them. You know they drink a lot in high school or they drink a lot in college. And it wasn't through their whole life it was easy to hide with with other people and I wasn't one of those people who you know. Bad things didn't happen every time I drink but every time something bad happened I had been drinking right and so I wasn't willing to make that connection. I guess I was younger again in college. There were people been drinking all the time so my behavior didn't look all that different different from anyone else. It was easy to hide and as I got through into adulthood I started a family. I was pregnant five jackets and so I was able to hold it off and also justified myself. Gosh I was able to give it up for five nine month pregnancies. Obviously they don't have a problem right and so that really. I was able to hide it for so long. You know until I could end until the consequences started outweighing what I thought I was getting out audits right in your story. You also talk about what I gathered. You May in some ways several attempts to try and stop and you would stop for awhile while it would kind of find its way back into your life and can you talk about that a little bit because I think that's so common when people struggle with addiction that they kind of stop stop and then it comes back. They don't really stop. I guess is the saying right. Then I'll stay stopped. Don't stay stopped. Yeah and that was one justification. I always used. I was that I must not be alcoholic because I can stop but I couldn't stay stop and so I would try to now give it up for a month and I would say okay. I did that obviously. I don't have a problem so I'll go back to it and knowing now that that is the addictive thinking not the alcoholic. Alex thinking that this was something that was really causing me to make really bad decisions. Making me feel terrible affecting my health. I felt better when I wasn't using it yet. I'M GONNA go ahead and go back to it and I do think that's very common. And not just with severely addicted rock bottom stories really just in our society ready to give up alcohol for a month for this cleanse. Because I'll feel better okay. I did that now. I'M GONNA go back to it so for me. It was just really not wanting to let it go knowing it was a problem but not being willing to say forever. I'M GONNA give this up forever and again as soon as I would go back to it I would be right back there and it will be causing problems for me and I just wasn't willing to ace it right and you in your book. Show a lot of examples of how from alcohol and and drinking all the problems that started to exacerbate in your marriage with your kids everything. Yeah it really got to the point where I couldn't ignore it anymore and I thought I was covering up or keeping it all together and other people thought I was keeping it together and it was sort of a double edged sword because I was doing whatever I could to make sure that I looked like I was keeping it together but I wasn't showing that it was a problem won't analysis so that anyone would help either right so there goes again the dishonesty the secrecy of it. It was really you know I think addiction is really just. It can be so soul-crushing because these lies of omission where we're not being true to who we are showing people who we really are in what's really going on right. Talk a little bit to the subtitle of your your book finding honesty and recovery beyond the filter life as you kind of start to paint this picture. How does that start to manifest itself? Well I think the honesty st piece. We've been talking about that. was just fundamentally something. That was a problem for me even from before ever picked up a drink before I was old enough when I was younger her it just this core feeling about myself. I wasn't good enough and knowing that none of those things worked for me. Lying did not work for me making other other people feel better about who. I was didn't work for me hiding. Alcoholism didn't work for me that I had to one hundred percent be honest and that was really hard hard for me. Yeah when we have a lot of shame and pain and we don't like you know there's a part of us that doesn't like who we think we are. Yeah we don't want to share that no and so for me. That was really. I knew that not being honest did not work and so I knew that going forward I just had to be fully honest and that was was when I first got sober texting everybody. I knew him no drinking anymore. So just being out there with my sobriety was the biggest thing and just so people knew that that this is what's going on this has been going on and even writing the books for knee. Aligning myself with everything that I thought I had gotten over in my life right not being honest with myself about the things I had been through and the things I still needed to deal with. I was drinking over right. which are very I mean in? The book are very powerful and it's such trauma from all of that. It's in some ways very understandable that anyone would in a way want to hide from that right and that was was as he read like a theme in my life. I'M GONNA move and start over. I'm going to do this and start over so I was always trying to reinvent myself and my intentions were always so good to try and start over but you just cannot start new if you do not deal with. What's happened to you before that and so for me? That's where I had to of AC and really had to go back when I was kid and start dealing with all of those things and honestly through that process and some of the things that I write about in the book. I didn't even really league totally uncover until I started the process of learning about learning about myself writing this book that I was able to realize all thinks that it happened to me in my life and make those connections. It's almost like you had to take the filter off so you could see yourself. Yeah absolutely a and I think that's one another theme of the book to is the social media aspect too is what I was showing other people and it was all the good stuff was all the positive things but yet you know even the cover of my book. It's all pictures from my institute actual pictures I post on instagram. But if you look closer on holding a wine glass and every picture and while I didn't see that I'm GonNa have to look at that again. Wow yeah once you look a little closer like okay or with my kids were cheers ing. You know they've got their apple juice. No got my wine and it just. I didn't even notice how it was such a theme in my life and I was drinking everyday and didn't notice it was just so a part of my lifestyle and so yeah. A lot of it came down to showing other people. What was really going on right like okay? This is the truth in almost almost I. You have to do it for yourself. And then do it with the world or some combination of that right and I started speaking about it. You know in the. I'm a consultant. I can and company in my side Gig. I don't know which is my side Gig now like skincare. Sales are in a recovery coaching. Anyway I spoke at a convention and I talked about that exact thing. This is what you see and I was seen as someone who is achieving all the things. I was earning all the trips. I was earning all the prizes and they showed pictures that he had seen on facebook on instagram. This is the day I earned this car by the way what you didn't see that I got a Dui that night and so so it really came back to that comparison trat were really looking at those. INSTAGRAM photo is in those high achieving. Those beautiful pictures. Oh I can I WANNA strive to be that way. You don't know what's going on. You don't know that I was actually at a police station that night but posted the picture of me earlier in the day before I got arrested. So it's really I think I think for me. It was just aligning. This is who I am. All of this is who I am all the pretty pictures and all of the crap that comes along with it to owning that for myself. Yeah one question I wanted to ask you particularly was as a woman as a mom struggling with addiction. Tell me a little bit about that. Because I think that's unique in of itself so for me. I think it was really difficult to.

"I'm I'm like I can be around it. It's totally we find. We don't necessarily keep it in the house. I think there might be a few beers out in the outside fridge. But that wasn't my thing it's finally people might bring it. They might not but the difference difference is before alcohol was V. Center. There was no question that if you came to our house you would be drinking and now that's not the center anymore more so it's changed the dynamic especially having kids at home that it's not expected and they're not now seeing that okay anytime you have a Cardi anytime you watch the football game anytime you have game night anytime you do this anytime you do anything having a barbecue. You'RE GONNA have tons of liquor take it's take it or leave it And there are some people who we kind of started realizing we really only hung out with Carla and and so those friendships you know nothing bad happened. It's not Adrian. had to write anybody off that we we. We don't hang out with them in the same way. There are some people who I loved dearly. Who I just? I can't stand when they're drunk and they know that sorry There are some people who can drink all day long that I can be around him and they don't change their totally like normal themselves. Salves of we've really taken a let's see approach to it and not excluding any activity not completely riding anybody off and and just doing what feels comfortable for both of us and you know he's always in my corner so it's really really helpful. I mean it's in total. It's it's been a key in in how in my sobriety having that support for sure. Yeah I love that. That's so good and I think really. You're very lucky because a lot of people people don't necessarily have the same support I think especially if the spouse also has a drinking problem and if they're not full blown blown alcoholic but if they're misusing it then they definitely don't want to give it up just because you are you know in that condemnatory 'cause Some strife the relationship but I always like to ask those questions because a lot of those experiences I didn't have never been married. So even in the demise of myself I did I didn't have anybody sitting front. See you know like watching hoping I didn't have to hide my drinking or anything like that but I'd like to talk talk about those different experiences because a lot of listeners that go through that stuff and and I know those are real struggles was the rest of your family pretty supportive. Yeah I mean. Extended family was grade. It's funny how things come out after the fact and my my parents I mean this one thing thing that always justify drinking's knees my parents don't drink Like my dad. I remember him having a beer or two. I mean once in a blue moon when I was younger maybe a friend came over. I think I've I only ever saw my mom drink wine at my wedding like that's it and and so I didn't come from the line of drinker and so having my mom watch me drink all those years When I finally did get sober she was likes breathing a sigh of relief and she she was one of those people who's like I always? I always wanted to say something but I didn't WanNa make you mad and I always thought it was Kinda weird that you always had wine in your hand or I smell it on your breath here. Adji never said anything and she's talked about that before. Like I kind of regret not saying anything but I wouldn't ever at time anyway. I mean we've talked through all that but it's been and really healing for a lot of relationships in that way and my extended family My kids were all pretty young. My oldest was eleven and eleven nine with the oldest two and so they were the ones who really kind of understood that. I used to drink a now. I don't and when I did a D. Y.. Had An interlock but my car the Breathalyzer Sir and so that's what really you know. I still drink for another six months. After that. It wasn't even like the nail in the coffin yet right but it was. It forced me to then the public with them and even though they already knew their new I drink but the consequences for public and you know we talked about it like this was broke the law I drank and then I drove not supposed to. This is my consequence and just talking about Moore. Why do people drink if you can have this consequence white? Do you know what. What's the point of drinking alcohol and starting to have those conversations a lot earlier than I thought I should but really it's? It's been a blessing thing because I feel like the kids are so much more educated about it now and no way more than I ever did. So it's it's been really great and they're super supportive to as much as they can be as kids. I one who disturbed high school this year. And you know he he talks about you know He. He's he's been places where there's an alcohol and if to him he sees it as something that you know. Has that wrecked his mom's life like about it like you know this is something I didn't didn't when I started really earlier in. This is what it did to me. You know your dad drinks regularly. It's an adult's activity. It's not legal at your age. Like he has all the FACS axe right not like don't drink. I never once you drink or you're GONNA be grounded type of thing. But here's the information in. I know you're gonNa make good choices because you've got a good head on your shoulders colors and a lot of it's letting go but also feel like they're just so much more well prepared to deal with all that stuff than than I probably was. Yeah and I really appreciate to like when you're talking about having events like kids events in the brewery and things like that or even the parties in your home. I think the people don't really understand that those things are normalizing alcohol to your kids also from way too young of ages you know so in a huge environmental piece to addiction in seeing it around and having it normalized or having access to it because one of your parents has a liquor cabinet or bar in your house all of those little things normalized this to kids where they grow up in inc.. It's almost like the natural progression Russian instead of kind of getting to make their own choice whether they want it or don't want it you know right right like why has it become something that you're going into do an and I always equated to cigarettes like I feel like it helps. Make the connection for people. Because it's legal. It's you know you can do it as an adult can buy cigarettes when you're an adult and it's a carcinogen like Sam his alcohol although sightings their risky. You're an adult. You can make your own choices. You take the risk if you want to but people well don't see it as that anymore. I would never assume my kid's GONNA grow up in smoke. I would hope they never would. And we don't be alcohol that way. We assume they will grow. Grow up drink and and why is that. Why aren't we teaching them? Even if we do drink even if you're a parent who drinks. Why aren't we teaching them that? It's not necessary. You don't hurry to you and it's more about you know do as I say not as I do and and then why are we surprised even goes farther when kids are not only drinking earlier but then there are rooting through your prescriptions. And they're buying street drugs like it's not that far of a leap to think about what they're seeing when they're watching you even if it's online every night seeing that adults numb themselves to be adults just thinking about that and interestingly then what happens is not drinking is the weird thing right and that's one of the things everybody's so fearful of when it's when they're thinking about getting sober quitting drinking it's that fear of. Oh my gosh what are people gonNA think of me. What are people going to say? Am I going to be ostracized because it seems weird to not drink which is so weird to me correct. So empowering to just be in your right mind and to be able to cope with your life and deal with your problems and do it like a grownup with real coping skills and inner strength to face things and get through them like that should be the thing that we're teaching our kids. You know it's best to be in your right mind and have that inner strength and not use a substance right and especially in this day and age age where we're so concerned about ingredients. Don't use that plastic and don't use parabens and make sure you exercise and no sugar and also you know no gluten dairy know this but here's a glass of wine were were saying here's a glass of poison plea right. Here's some gasoline. Lean like I don't. There is such a disconnect there and I can't tell you I went on so many cleanses I bought into it. I bought into it. And it's now seeing winging it for what it is and seeing the connection with cancer in connection with heart disease in connection with all these things that were using food to try and treat which is great great food and Exercise Win. Were just washing it down with mine. It just makes no sense. Yeah Okay last question. Oh my favorite question. What is your favorite thing about being a sober person? My favorite thing about being a sober person is being being who I am. All the time and and again like aligning myself. You know who I feel like. I didn't even know who I was until I got sober knowing what I like knowing the things. Are you know at taste. Good the exercises. I like the he just being real in in my right mind in my right body one hundred percent myself because I felt like for so many years I used. Alcohol halted to Numb who I was changed. What I thought was wrong or dumbed down what I didn't like about myself and so just I love that now? I'm really who I am and who I'm meant to be while it's so beautiful I love that. Yeah when I was drunk I thought I was an extrovert. How totally totally? I was fun and funny farthest thing from an extrovert. I had to be drunk to be amidst all those people you know. I thought I was a social butterfly. But it wasn't. I was just drunk. Yeah Yeah it's funny. How you and I think too when people people say what do you do when you're sober like what do you do? And I'm like I do every single thing. I want everything that when I was is drunk. I just talked about doing now. I actually go do it In your Salem much together like you can do it. In fact the first big big trip I took my first trip ever internationally. I'd been to Canada and Mexico but I had never been like across the pond. Was Germany to October fest. So over so for me. That was one thing I was kind of holding off my getting sober for so long I gotta take trip gotTa take that trip. got a drink and it was so oh great being there like experiencing I had never experienced vacation one hundred percent felt good in the morning I get up I can go be a tourist. Could do all the things that could take everything in. I didn't forget anything in black anything out. And I'm like Oh and that was about nine months into my sobriety. Yeah like I get it now like. I'm not the one missing out like everyone in the tense. WHO's all hammered? They're all missing a good time and so yeah yeah I just think it's. It's such a better rail of and getting to rediscover your authentic self or maybe discover cover for the first time kind of you know because my first adult years I was just drunk so there really is this whole kind of growing up process in sobriety but really learning who I actually am. And what are the things in life that I actually enjoy and things that I'm I'm good at instead of just kind of being part of the heard the drunken heard and doing whatever going bar to bar like I look back now and I'm absolutely absolutely amazed at how much time I wasted sitting in bars. Time engineering wasted so much time money. Yeah it it's easy. I know it is crazy so crazy. We'll emily thank you so much for doing this. PODCAST with me. It was such a pleasure to meet you.

"Be triggering for me or going to a party birthday party in driving myself leaving early. I did a lot of that. Gosh I remember that time to seeing really challenging in having a hard time with my husband finding that balance a lot of our drinking we did together and and he's a normal drinker. He's the guy who can leave a beer have half of it and dumped the rest on the sink and he's fine and he can have take it or leave it right. There does not anything I could ever do and so he drank almost to make me feel more comfortable in my drinking days when I was daily drinking. It's like if I had a glass of wine already. It was probably my third. You don't WanNa beer and sit with me so we could connect and I mean the irony is that you don't connect when you're wrong but you know so. We had to find a new normal that now he wasn't drinking daily either so he had a big life change as well and it was caused for him to but just kind of finding that balance balance again finding new things to do instead of stopping at the bar. You know again. I think getting through the first year getting through every season really made the difference and I tell that to everybody like it's never going to be easy. You'RE GONNA have to still deal with those feelings and stuff like getting through everything every season every holiday every thing thing sober and knowing what you can tolerate a why can't is is really key like moving forward. It's so big in. I think you never know when a something is going to strike you. That feels uncomfortable. You know I remember sitting at my mom's at Christmas. I think Thanksgiving giving her Christmas. I was ten years sober and one of my brothers and my stepfather were mixing cocktails in the kitchen and they were just just having a moment right and they were laughing. I was ten years sober in in mind. You I was a bartender many years into my sobriety. Righty you know I was a bartender for twenty years and kept doing it into my spidey. It did not bother me to be around alcohol at ten years sober. I caught myself sitting in the living room. Tom Overhearing them in the kitchen. Mixing these drinks. And having this bonding moment in laughing and I felt left out had that little twinge of just feeling left out and it didn't last long you know but it's just interesting. Those things can pop up at any time have to be mindful. It's one thing I say all the time is I put a lot of emphasis on feeding your recovery like I have to be feeding my recovery rague yearly to make it strong so win a little moment like that pops up. It stays a little moment in it doesn't turn into a relapse. You know what I mean and like I have to make my recovery strong so it can protect me in those moments. Yeah I certainly found the time when I was drinking to drink like I n drinking came before for anything else I would always find that our even five minutes some now. I tell myself that if I'm even talking trying to talk myself out of something going to a meeting or meeting eating my sponsor or going to sharing circle or whatever I'd done that does support my recovery or even exercising. I tell myself okay. An hour really like you would have found an hour to drink milk problem before and just reminding myself of that. And it's so true in those little things pop up if I didn't have off recovery if I wasn't working recovery there are so many times I would have probably fallen prey to it because you start to think to yourself. Maybe it wasn't that at the many times I did stop. I never stayed stops but the many times I did. Stop and things would get better. I would always think that like Oh. Maybe it wasn't bad I tell myself that and so now I really try to flip the script from like okay. I can't drink which I know that I know I can't I know I can't but telling myself I don't need to and just changing the story for myself that I'm not missing out on what they're doing. It's still a toxic substance. It's GonNa make my life horrible you know I'm dismissing that connection and I need to find that somewhere else. That's what I'm really missing. We get so boring when we're drinkers to you. Like were so un-imaginative in this I'd like I think this is a problem in the whole world everything just revolves around drinking. Everybody's so lame like they. He can't come up with anything else to do. You know what I mean like. Every sporting event does not have to revolve around booze every holiday party or family picnic nick or family dinner or whatever. Everything does not have to revolve around booze. There are things that we can go do and be sober and I remember member my sponsor telling me early on. He's like Angela. If you're bored you're being boring and I loved that challenged me. I was like Oh my gosh. He's right like like. I'm sitting around complaining about being bored because I'm doing a sitting around complaining about being bored. Let me go find something to do. Get creative create a life for yourself you get outside the comfort zone right. Well I think too. It's because it's everywhere we let ourselves be lazy even even means not just the at sporting events that I mean with parenting like. That's when you really see it in since I got sober I see it more is do we have to have the kids awards banquet at a brewery. You know where people are putting their own agenda ahead of the kids and I was for sure like I'm not putting him on other other parents like yeah I was that here in but look at it now. Like wow we really do default to that in any circumstance over anybody even her own kids and you can say onions. Benign were there celebrating but we're also patting ourselves on the back and just having a beer but what we really look at it. It's like is that we need to be doing because we couldn't go anywhere like the kids would probably rather go to a playground or for sure movie or anything else other than a brewery and so who are we making this out out. I mean you see it all the time and especially with MOMS and marketing to moms and it's just I mean I could talk about that on a whole other podcast. Yeah I mean the mommy wine culture is crazy to me at this stage of the game. There's a girl I follow on instagram. Who I absolutely love love? And she posted a thing that said Wine is not an accessory to Motherhood Right. Oh Yeah love that. That's so brilliant can't because that is you're exactly right. The marketing dollars are going to mom's right now because moms are the most stressed out in the most tired. And that's what we equate to relaxing relief and relaxation. Right if you google. Let's say I'm the reason mommy drinks. It comes up with like sixty five thousand options for like t shirts and so. That's one thing that horrifies me is were putting nab on our kids right in and it is dangerous to know if you're a drinker and you WANNA drink and that's your thing that's totally fine but where I fell in the trap that all the MOMS who could drink and not have a problem. I was lumping jumping myself in with them and I did have a problem right. And so it's normalizing drinking for people who cannot and should not be drinking at ten. Am just because it's at the playgroup Klay Group or just because you buy the glasses rosie all day or the Tumbler. That says Mommy's juice or whatever this stuff that it does make you think this is normal when it's not moral. Yeah totally. I agree one thing I would love for you to touch on and is you touched on it a little bit a few minutes ago but the dynamics of your marriage as you had to make this big life life change in in you had already been married a long time when you got sober and this is something that I deal with a lot in private sessions with the clients But also it's come up in my facebook group a lot really navigating how your relationship changes changes in the nature of your relationship changes in some of the fears that come up in your partner as you get sober right. I know a lot of times partners are like well. Wait a minute like everything we do is with our drinking friends. So how is this going to affect our social life as a couple. How is this going to affect our personal time together? There were things are we gonNA do. They're just a lot of dynamics there and I would love if you could touch on that a little bit and what that experience looked like for you so it was really hard at first. It was even difficult at first because again I took so long to finally come to terms with the fact that I was not call can could not drink anymore four and when I the day after I went to my first. Aa Meeting my husband. And I both have the day off and the kids were at school and it was because it was January. Second for some reason they at school on we had a free day. It's like never happens and went out to lunch and I said I'm going to stop drinking. And drinking more. And he was like okay and 'cause he knew you obviously he knew it was a problem but again he he wasn't necessarily he was part of the problem too because he wasn't necessarily motivated to tell me to stop because it was something we did together and he also saw the same thing I saw. I could stop when I was pregnant. I stopped during cleanses or when I was trying to give it up and and he he just didn't he didn't know enough about it and neither did I. And so at first it was like okay. What is this? Are you like an alcoholic or are you like just rooting for right now. Or are you just GonNa try and control it like what is going to be like and really up I. I'm like I don't know like I know I can't drink and so I'm just GonNa go with this team for now and So I think both of us kept a really open mind at first and also we told everybody we knew like. Hey I'm in. My mind is not drinking anymore and so any where we went. People knew that don't offer her dream or you know don't be Indica about it or make fun. Don't ask pregnant right lazy as you don't do any of those things that are annoying and so we really safeguarded ourselves. Socially with people we hung out with and for the most people we surrounded ourselves with were super supportive of it I love your husband right now for having your back like that. He is so rude. I mean like really being united with you you and going to your friends and saying here's the deal. It was a we thing not a youth thing. I love him for that so tell him I said thank you. Oh I will for sure and during our marriage a lot of things that happened we had some turmoil that happened. Because of my drinking you know no doubt and so obviously he was motivated to help improve our marriage too and you know help improve our family so as time went on realizing again he he started drinking lists realizing that he was rigging because I drink We did socialize differently but in a better way like when we had friends over they knew they were coming in..

"Shen we can figure out the details from there okay. I think that's everything I have for today. You guys again. I'm so ridiculously crazy. Proud of you for getting getting through this Thanksgiving holiday and also shout out to all of our people in all the other countries that are in our facebook group. I love you guys so much and I know you. We didn't have Thanksgiving but I really appreciate you being supportive of us in the things that we're doing in the states and we're going to start celebrating some of your holidays too so love you guys hope. Hope you love this episode. Let's dig in with Emily Lynn. polson Hi Emily. Thank you for being says. Hi Angela thanks for having me it. Just tell everybody a little bit about you and who you are and what you do. We'll do so. I am first and foremost a mom of five. I live in Seattle Washington and author of highlight reel finding honesty and recovery on on the filtered life. And I am re you're sober I'm a certified professional recovery coach and now I'm an advocate for recovery recovery and for women going through recovery from all different things from substance abuse eating disorders trauma. And so that's my I platform and that's why I'm here. I love that. There are so many pieces that I want to know about in different things that you do the first just being I want to ask is more INFO kind of on the background of your book. So what is the premise of your book. DOC sure so really. When I started writing it was kind of figure out how I got to where I was? it was when I got sober and I really I started reading a lot started writing the lot just to kind of figure out like how did I get here and as I started writing thinking I'm writing about a mom on WHO's getting sober. That's really what I thought it would be about. You know mom going through this with her kids during navigate this and what really turned into was a memoir just on recovery recovery from lots of things as started peeling back the layers and realizing what was I using alcohol four and I think a lot of people when they drink. It's the drink. It's what they're drinking for. Why what are they drinking over? What are they drinking to try and heal? And I found that there was all this through my history all of these times in my life where these behaviors alcoholic behaviors Not necessarily without called me with something popped up and so this book really became chronological history of how I got to that place And that's how it just became the more of my life and all the things I recovered from And where I am. I'm today Nice. Where did you get the title? So the tunnel was something that kind of came up so I in my former or current career still and a skincare consultant on. I don't know which is on the side now. My recovery coach. Outsiders get Gary Inside like I don't know which is my side Gig but I. This is being asked to speak and train A loved him it was about you. Know business related things sales and then I started being asked Moore to share my story three and I I would weave it in a way to avoid comparison trap because I think people in sales business especially women really you get stuck by while she so much more successful. She's been doing this less time than I have. How is she doing that? And so just peel back the curtain a little bit and say okay. Do you see this successful picture of me when I earned this car will that night I got a Dui and and so I kind of started using that as a platform more in saying this is the highlight reel and I would say that a lot but you don't see what ends up on the cutting room floor so I just kept using that terminology and it it morphed into high la by Real R. E. A. L. Versus R. E. E. L. Seattle for the name came from. Yeah I love that especially now now when there is so much emphasis on kind of what you see in the social media world and how how much it's not reality you know and I always talk about a first of all. I am so grateful that I got sober before. Social media was a real thing thing like we had mice space. Oh Yeah my space right. I'm older than you. And we had had mice base I because back then. facebook really was for college kids so when I was in my early thirties it would. It would have been super. Were creepy for me to have been on facebook. We're on my space and there wasn't nearly the level of interaction like there is now on facebook by. I always talk about that mask right in that. In my life I felt like as long as my outside picture looked a certain in way now had the right hair in the right makeup and I lived in the right zip code and had the right car as long as that outside picture presented me in a certain way. Say The nobody would ask any questions about what was really going on the inside and so the title of your book and kind of that premise really fascinated me because we all have that duality. I think it's just more pronounced now because we have all these platforms with social media where we can put all these pictures of ourselves and the highlight reel. It's always the best moments right. This is something I've challenged myself to do is to do more stuff like no makeup. You know like I'm always. He's doing videos and stuff no makeup hair up in. It's like you know what this is. Just the reality of it like I don't walk around all day every day made up. It just doesn't work like that uh-huh this is my life and sometimes I'm recording my podcast with my messy bun and no makeup now. It is so I really push myself to do those things so that I don't get too insecure because really that's what would happen is I would start getting all that insecurity of like. Oh I don't WanNa leave my house if I'm not made up and I spent my twenties in Los Angeles right where it's so much that way. A lot of my girlfriends were like when you go to the grocery store without outspending two hours on their hair and makeup. And I'm like seriously do. Can we just go get the French fries. Priorities priority. Well I think that's so that's so true and I I think with social media you know I I always say I'm so glad I did all my stupid shit shit before social media. But you know I've done stupid things since then too but you know in College Mutant F. Social Media In my twenty s wasn't until will you know really the last ten years when it's been a thing where you have a million friends before I had my friends mega befriends and we talked to me hung out and we connected and we chatted about things good and bad. They saw the good the bad. And now we're in the place where we have a million acquaintances and and they see our Disneyland photos and they see our filter pictures and they see all the good things we're doing and like we should post things. Were happy about. We should post the pictures we like ourselves else. Sure but then you're not getting a balance of this is also what's going on like I yelled at my kids this morning and I did this and I didn't take a shower until literally the half an hour ago like the things that you're not getting that balance and it does make you. It can make you feel less than like well how you doing all of that. And how is she keeping it together and hi can barely barely pull myself out the door. So I think that's one thing is just trying to get back to like real connections with people and sharing like really going on on your life. Yeah I'm very much the same and also why I try to speak pretty openly about my struggles to as an addicted person. I feel like people get this picture of like when you've been sober a long time people think that you've got it all together and you don't have the same issues and I'm like listen. Dan I still I struggle with boo. That's been a huge struggle for me. The last couple of years for sure and a battle that I have in and I struggle with financial insecurity. The and and I'm still an addict. It doesn't matter how long I've been sober. I still have that anxiety. That can be overwhelming. I still have days. That are really really down the only differences at this stage of the game. I have much more practice getting myself. Out of those things right I can talk myself off the allege pretty good at this point. I'm also very dedicated to doing the right things to keep myself healthy. So when I'm really having a moment that I'm sliding back. I will hold myself accountable and I'll start reaching out to my friends and saying hey I need this I need support. I'm freaking out right now or I've been isolating into March. I need a coffee day like me at a meeting. Like whatever the thing. I will hold myself accountable in a lot of those ways but I'm still an addict. It doesn't matter how long you've been sober. I still have all the same stuff as the person that's thirty days in. You know. Yeah I still have all the reasons that I drank before right over things that I I drank to get back at people drink to soothe my anxiety or soothe my depression. I just have different tools for that now and I of course I still struggle with that and I and I know I think knowing that you're still going to is part of the process that it's not like he just stopped drinking and then like everything's great and everything so perfect like it's so the opposite from that you really have to now figure out. Okay what do I do about this feeling. And it's funny 'cause last night it was talking my husband and I had a actually had a book signing last night light in town we live in west Seattle. It's Kinda little offshoot of Seattle a little smaller little more neighborhood the Thursday night. It's it was just an hour is very short window hard for people to make it and I found myself going to that place where you know if someone couldn't show up or sorry I can't make it sorry. Can't be their families of going to to that place of like rejecting they're rejecting my story like Starting to tell myself stories in my head and really alcoholic thinking and having to say to myself self. Okay what's really going on here so just I still do that all the time. I just have a different way to talk to myself about it. Talk to my husband about it. Who can give me a different perspective? So I don't go down this rabbit hole of they're mad at me. They hate me on the worst person in the world. which is what I wouldn't have used to do? Yeah I would internalize those things as like like a lack of support you know what I mean like. Oh my gosh. They're not sporting what I'm doing. They don't like what I put out. You're exactly right. It would have been all kind of rejection. Then they don't like me that's my recurring thing is like all convince myself that nobody likes me. And it's so like I could kind of laugh at myself now because I've caught myself for so long long doing it but if something somebody is a little bit off in behavior in in an interaction I will catch myself going. Oh I don't think they like me anymore. I don't think that person likes me. I don't like Angela what what is wrong with you. Know they don't dislike you. You know it was a weird moment or whatever but don't blow it out of proportion yeah or reading into a text Smith Those are the things where if I- anymore have a question of have someone's interacting with me be a text. I'll give him a call. 'cause he instantly hearing their voice. Then I know there. There's something why not our own was going time or immediately whereas the lack of an exclamation point on a text might send me worrying about something. That's not even wrong. So it's I think again that goes back to just connecting with people and talk to people and in knowing where they're coming from and their feelings and what's really going on Tom. Yeah so when. Was it for you in. Your journey was the first time that you recognized that you actually had a problem. Well I would say hindsight's twenty twenty of course but I know that really the first time I got drunk when I was fourteen years old told that I could tell it affected me differently than it did my peers. The people I was with and of course at that time. I didn't think think I must have a problem in middle. Colic was until years later. That evening connected the dots. But I remember just knowing that I almost felt like I was more myself and I just felt like I found magic potion and everyone else was just like Drinkin- to take the edge off or drinking for whatever reason that you drink maynard teenager because they felt like their socio. Oh stoop peer pressure and so my attitude around it from the very beginning was very different and then as time went on I can obviously see that I did bid strict binge drink but in college very easy to hide that kind of behavior I did blackout drink a lot again. It wasn't that far off from what my peers were doing. But I always had a sense that it was not okay and and when things happened that were bad it was always when I was drunk. You know things didn't always go wrong when I drank when when they did. Alcohol was involved right and then I was able to hold it off more once. I got married once. You know the things we were doing together were social a wine tasting or beer making or whatever even.
"I have an outstanding ending episode for you today. Our guest is emily. Lynn Paulson. Who is also a coach and recovering alcoholic and a mother of five five and longtime wife?

You guys you're gonNA love it and we're GONNA dive into that in just a minute on that note. Those of us in the state just got doc through Thanksgiving which like everything else in the states seems to have some emphasis on drinking. And I'm so proud of you for getting and through the holidays and for all of you in the facebook group that have celebrated your sobriety and tackling not stressful event head on these are the situations that you get through and you realize on the other side of it. You literally are so much stronger than you think like. It feels all scary going in but since you had all the strategies from last week's episode to get you through any social situation you got to plan ahead. You had some tricks up your sleeve to get you through those difficult moments and protect yourself and you slayed it so proud of you guys in so. I'm grateful for sharing everything in that facebook group and if you aren't in the facebook group jump over there and join. This is an incredible resource for for support and motivation. There's a ton of love and honesty in there in. It's totally private. So you don't have to worry about it showing up in your facebook feed or anything like that. It's FACEBOOK DOT com forward slash groups forward slash addiction unlimited. And I will link that in the show notes so you can get there right from your podcast and lastly many of you have been scheduling those free consultations with me to figure out how we can work together. And and what's the best fit for you and there are so many options so keep that in mind to coaching is very fluid and flexible. And all I WANNA do who is support us so if you have questions please take advantage of that free consultation. That's exactly what it's there for. I'm happy to help you figure out next accepts and what works for you and your lifestyle and your budget in your time and all of that and the really big announcement right now is I have a a couple of openings in my recovery to k program in this is a great option for you if you're ready to get like super serious about sobriety eighty maybe your marriage is in trouble because of your drinking or you've created some financial strain from your drinking or maybe your job is in jeopardy. I mean all all the things that come with it legal trouble you know. I had a ton of legal trouble in my early sobriety and I know how that feels like you're sad overwhelmed disappointed in yourself and feeling like you have no idea what to do. You need support motivation. And most importantly you need a daily daily strategy of what the heck to do how to occupy your time how to quiet down that Dang committee in and deal with your anxiety and stress in spouse and kids and everything else. It's exhausting and I know firsthand. It's a scary scary place to be. I also know there are a thousand reasons. We talk ourselves out of taking action even the smallest action. And you've definitely learned by now that if you don't take action and get serious about this and get support to figure out each step you will end up back at square one over and over again and I would venture venture to say you have probably already lived this pattern so I have a couple of openings right now. This doesn't happen super often because the recovery to K is so oh hands on with me daily connection and strategy so I only take on so many people at a time to ensure that everyone gets the one on one time they deserve. And right now I have two openings. So if you're ready to get serious support in strategy stopped the roller coaster of sober for for a while then drunk again. Then start now. Don't waste another minute on emotional rollercoaster. Either I know you want to get ahead of this thing and you deserve to be happy..
