"I'm Angela Pugh your host. I think you guys are GonNa love this especially. This is a totally outside the box. Different point of view which I love. I love having not on the show. We have jen couch today. We are recording in the beautiful Fort Worth Texas and JEN IS. I love this term that she uses sober mended. And we're going to learn more about that when gen starts telling us who she is and what she does and she is from sober sis dot com and that's at sober cysts on instagram. And of course we will have all that stuff in her show notes. Let's welcome Jen to the POD. Hi Jen thanks for coming on. Thank you so much for having me so I also need to say that you were so lovely to open your home to us to record in your home and you made me a wonderful mock tale a Virgin Peach Bellini. That is fantastic awesome. I love that enjoying. Yeah and you mentioned something. About Mach tails and Munchies. Is that what you called it? Oh yes it's about that. Well it's been really fun. It's something that I started Just the spring and I just wanted to show women that it's an option that you can have a great girls night out or a get together in a home without wind being the center focus Or even necessary quite honestly so started. Mock tells them munchies and it's been really fun. It's kind of grown over the months. There's always great handful of gals that come out and different companies even have sponsored it with their products and it's just what we do is just like girls we get together. We talk we laugh. We share stories about life. We have fun and we experiment with Mock Tales. I mean where else are. You GonNa find a whole kitchen countertop of things that you just want to try once or a little dabble so we have a lot of fun just experimenting and making connections and building row relationships. I love that. How did you get into the whole mock tail trend? Well that's a good question and it is kind of a trend. I do see a lot of people wanting to have a a festive. Drink of fun drink. You know being sober order choosing an alcohol-free lifestyle you stick it such a bad rap. It would seem so lame or so boring and I think the trend is really heading now towards it. Becoming almost like they're mixologist out. There there are artisan crafters. That are coming up with these amazing drinks. They don't even always back most of the TIME MIMIC. What alcohol tastes like they mimic the feeling of the ritual beautiful glass the feeling of of? Glamour. The feeling that women. I think drink for often and I think too in in the recovery community some of those things can be an issue right because it can create a situation that triggers mean you and I were talking about this I just talked about this on another episode and not long ago talking about how match of these alcohol free spirits and things are they actually mimicking the flavor because mimicking the flavor of an drink for me would be a problem a lot of times. We talk about in recovery. We talk about some of those rituals in that. It can lead to a situation where we get triggered because it was so much of our lifestyle and we connected to drinking but I think at the same time especially for those of us with long term sobriety right like for me to drink. Something out of a beautiful glass is not going to trigger me so much. It's GonNa make me really happy and smile because I get to have a pretty glass night right so. I don't know that it's problematic. I know in the recovery community. That is something that is talked about because we glamorize that drinking lifestyle right and that's part of the problem. In that addicted mind is is glamorizing that lifestyle and with that comes glamorizing those glasses and Those nights out so to speak. So it's a slippery slope. I think I love to that. There is this whole spectrum of people that are making a conscious choice to live a sober life in. That's so big like you don't have to be a full blown alcoholic to live and alcohol free lifestyle and I love that piece too. Yeah exactly well and and that's kind of where I have found myself. You mentioned earlier the words to buy sobriety spectrum and I do think that there's a Sobriety spectrum so I stole the sobriety spectrum from Kris Marshall he's on the Sandbar episode. But it's just it's such a good term. I love it. I love it that I'm hearing that as well. I think that's true for me. My sobriety or choice to really live this alcohol-free lifestyle for me came primarily because I was exhausted from the tug of war in my mind. And that's why talk a lot about sober mindedness so when I when I started drinking I was a little bit later in life. I was in my thirties. Actually in IT I. It was spun. What what signaled freedom and A joyous time could sometimes signal towards the end. Something that maybe not be. It wouldn't be as fun. There may be a hangover or I may just be in so much conflict in my mind. So for me. The exhaustion of trying to relate moderate. Something that I felt was going against what I was doing by day. Now let me see this makes sense to you something that I've kind of come up with to describe it because I'm a really healthy person right. I'm I'm health conscious or at least I try to be healthier but I'm a very healthy person and I feel like I'm mindful by day like I go to hot yoga. I drink green juice. I do all these things really mindfully. Very sober-minded right during the day and very intentional living and then five o'clock would roll around and I could have all the best intentions in the world in the morning and say at tonight. I think I'm not going to drink my glass of wine while I'm cooking or I'm going to a networking event. I'm going to skip it. What I would find is the willpower or the good intentions or the resolve would start to wane by what you know. We all know the wine o'clock hour and so by five o'clock I found that all my tensions just went out the window it was like I was right back to feeling a mix of emotions a mix of mindset. Like I'm going to undo my workout today. If I have a couple of glasses of wine I know that sugar. I know that it's getting harder to have just one. It's not the nature of the substance to open a bottle of wine and had a glass and so I knew that I was working against almost my own mind. I felt so conflict within myself so externally I would say. I looked like most everybody I would say internally. I was having a unique conflict. That made me feel exhausted. Sometimes alone isolated. Because I didn't necessarily fit down the spectrum and resonate by being I wasn't an alcoholic I didn't feel like going to a meeting in in grabbing a label for the way I was feeling was going to serve me in getting where I wanted to go but I also didn't feel like there were a lot of people for years. I felt kind of stuck because I felt like no one was really talking to this gray area drinker. Yes kind of a new term as well. You've got sobriety spectrum and you've got gray area. Drinker Jot felt like I kind of fell in where it was something that was in my life but it was becoming too important in my life. I started to look forward to it more than I really wanted to and I just felt in conflict. I felt in conflict As a Christian with my faith not because got says it's wrong to drink alcohol but because I knew I was putting it oftentimes before him here I if I wanted comfort for my anxiety it was easier to poor class of wine. Then sit down and ask him to give me what I knew. Only he could and so. I had that conflict. I had conflict with my health. You know again. The yoga girl green juice girl by day and drinking the wine in front of the TV at night it just didn't match and then as a mom to Felton conflict. And that is so many of those things you just said are things that we talk about of course in recovery and a lot of those. Things are some of the beginning warning signs. But I think what people don't realize and this is why like that gray area drinker term too because what people sometimes don't realize is there are a lot of stages of drinking and misusing alcohol and abusing alcohol. There are these stages before you get to an actual addictive physically dependent stage and I feel like that's kind of what you're talking about and I think when you and I were talking on the phone last night. We talked a little bit about this too. Where I feel like in twelve steps we would refer to that as a high bottom. You know I was a lower bottom. That's kind of a high bottom drinking person in the way you're describing like you have such an awareness of all of those warning signs and to have that awareness and to catch yourself in to make a conscious choice to live differently. I think is incredible in one of the things I kept. Thinking as you were describing. It is words and actions because we talk so much recovery about my words need to match my actions. And that's what you're talking about. In that conflict you know healthy conscious aware of having a healthy lifestyle in treating your body well and feeding it well by day and then doing this thing at night. That kind of went totally against that exactly. Yes that that put it in a nutshell right there and I felt like I was living in divided life. I felt like I had a divided mind and I was. The tug of war was in my mind so really. That's where my work began so about not a big day counter so much of how many days it's been since I haven't drank because quite honestly I really kind of still hold the choice in the option to drink what I want when I want. I have just found that my desires for alcohol have changed so I feel the freedom but I also feel like the mindful piece in the education piece which was huge for me. I did not understand. I really just did not know. And that's one of my passions one of my things that I get really excited about. Is Education Information Women Today? We are getting just an onslaught of mass media marketing heading our way and a lot of it's misinformation to sell the product. I mean follow the money. The alcohol industry is the second largest advertising budget in the world behind automobiles. That's for a reason because it works even if even if we don't want it to work it's still working on our subconscious mind. So that's that's where I began to do so much unraveling was with my belief system because I honestly into actually believed that alcohol allowed me to relax. I really thought that it would help me sleep better. I really thought that it would take away on my stress and anxiety in those years where I'm raising teenagers and wanted to take the edge off what I have come to find out through honest just looking at the facts is alcohol has a huge effect. Negative effect on anxiety. Yes done oh my gosh. The connection between alcohol in anxiety is shocking. And I didn't know that I really just thought. Oh it'll just kind of take the edge off all it takes all the edges off is what it does and actually chemically produces more stress hormones in our body knowing that. Yeah I could have a glass of wine. It would make me fall asleep but it wouldn't keep me asleep was eye opening to me like literally for years and I did not quality sleep right. Yeah I didn't know that I don't sleep for years. I passed out right and then at three. Am Got Your wakeup call? That you didn't WanNa have restful sleep. Yeah exactly and I hate that three and wakeup call..

"Is I get to keep these things forever. I get to continue to be honest respectable strong and devoted not like the temporary lie of relief. That you offer. I don't like to use the word hate but it is the only word ugly enough to embrace what I feel for you relapse I hate you I absolutely hate you. And that's my letter to relapse and that is exactly what. I'm feeling today. This is a challenge that we see a lot too when people talk about rock bottom and people love to throw that phrase around like they've hit their rock bottom and then two days later they're drinking again. I'll tell you something about rock bottom when you're there you don't turn back when you're really at rock bottom and let's talk about this for a minute too because you know in a we talk about rock bottom. That's you know. The phrase gets thrown around a lot. You guys know my rock bottom moment when I crashed my car thinking about having a call my mom and tell her that he killed someone thankfully. I didn't kill anyone but I felt that guilt because I took the actions that ended up in a situation where I thought that dude was dead and it doesn't matter to me that he wasn't dead. I felt the enormity in the gravity of that situation because the choices I made resulted in a situation that could have killed him so I still felt like I killed him. It was awful. That's rock bottom and I have a pretty low rock bottom right. Other People's rock bottom is much lower than mine. Maybe they did actually kill. Someone may be in their addiction. They held up at gun point and shot and killed them. Maybe somebody else was drunk and had a car accident where they did kill the person maybe whatever it could be a thousand things. Rock bottom can be much lower than my rock. Bottom rock bottom can also be much higher. We see a lot of people now. It's very trendy to be sober to be alcohol-free whatever the hell you want to call yourself it's very trendy right now to not drink so we see a lot of people were there. Rock bottom isn't getting to the place like mine was and we call those high bottom. It's a higher bottom right. You don't have to burn your life down in destroy yourself and go to jail in all that drama. You don't have to create all of that for yourself to quit drinking right. If you're smart you'll just pull your head out of your ass and realize that you don't do it right and get over all the hang ups and just stop and you can do that whenever you want. So some people have a higher bottom. They realize you guys heard I've episode with sober SIS. Jen Couch that I love. I love her. I love her episode and She just realized that it wasn't serving her. She didn't feel good about herself. She felt like a fraud because during the day she was super healthy healthy eating doing yoga drinking. You Know Green smoothies and then at night. She was drunk in her rock. Bottom was not anywhere near mind right. She didn't go super low. She's didn't feel good about what she was doing. So she got her shit together and she made a commitment a real commitment and she turned her life around so rock. Bottom is a different place for everybody. Your rock bottom doesn't have to be devastating. But I'll tell you the problem. Oftentimes with high bottom people that want to quit drinking is that they're not actually convinced. Did it will cost them their lives see. I knew in the moment standing on the side of the freeway trying to figure out how I'M GONNA call my mom and tell her I just killed someone. I knew. In that moment the alcohol was going to kill me or worse. Kill someone else. I knew in that moment. Unequivocally without a doubt drinking was no longer an option for me because my rock bottom was that tragic. I think sometimes when you're rock-bottom isn't tragic you still hold onto. This thought that eventually you'll be able to drink again. Well maybe I'll just quit for a year and then I'll be able to drink again. Well maybe I'll just drink on new year's or whatever the little games we love to play with ourselves I'm tired of the Games. If you know the you don't drink well then stop drinking. It's really that simple if you you don't do it well if it's costing you consequences if you're feeling shameful in guilty and gross about the choices you're making it's breaking down your self esteem. It's giving you marital problems giving you problems in your family. You're lying to the people that you love or if you're blacking out getting DU is whatever level of your on whether it's high bottom or low bottom. If you know you don't drink well then stop drinking in. Stop playing games with yourself. Stop playing games that some day. You're going to teach yourself how to drink like other people drink if that was possible. You wouldn't be quitting if it was possible for you to have some control in your drinking. You wouldn't be quitting. You wouldn't be listening to this podcast. You wouldn't be in the facebook group. You wouldn't be seeking inspiration and motivation and support to live alcohol-free you wouldn't be doing those things if you had the capability of controlling your drinking because people that can control their drinking. Never get where we get. They don't even think about alcohol. They don't think about how much they're gonNA DRINK. Or if they're gonNA drink or is there going to be alcohol there or do? I need to go to the liquor store. Am I GONNA run out? They don't even think about it. Stop playing games with yourself. Stop playing mental mind. Fuck Games with yourself trying to tell yourself that one day you're going to be able to drink again. All you're doing is prolonging your own pain but often times. That is an issue when people try to quit before their consequences. Get tragic because somewhere in your brain you hold it in there that it's not so bad for you. You probably listen to this podcast and think Oh. I wasn't as bad as Angela was in. Maybe you weren't yet but if you WANNA keep drinking if you WANNA keep trying to spar with the bear. I promise you will lose. And that's the decision. You have to make the decision you have to make is. Do you want to win or do you WANNA lose? Do you WanNa have a nice life or do you WanNa continue swirling the drain until your whole life goes down the drain. That's the choice you have to make. I don't give a shit what you WANNA call yourself alcoholic or alcohol. Free sober curious. Whatever the hell you want to call yourself. I don't care if you WANNA go to AA or go to A. I don't care if you WANNA hate a more power to you if you don't WanNa go to a honestly I don't want you there anyway because it's my safe place. That's a place where people go to help each other and love each other and support each other. And if you don't want to be there don't go and if you know you can't drink then stop drinking and stop playing games with yourself. I don't care if you're hung up on powerless. And you don't Wanna be called powerless. I don't care call yourself whatever you want. This isn't about the words this isn't about what room you sit in if it's a or church or if it's your living room it doesn't matter what room you're in. It doesn't matter what words you use. You have to come to a realization and be honest with yourself about who and what you are and if you can't drink it doesn't matter if you call yourself an alcoholic or not you cannot handle alcohol than stop freaking drinking. It's that simple. If you want to continue trying to have a sparring match with a bear that will whip your ass every time. Then keep doing that and see where that gets you because you will lose and you think you're not as bad as the other people in AA or maybe. You're not as bad as I was. Maybe you're not but you'll get there you want to think about some of the things you really capable of because drinking we'll take you. There addiction will destroy you so again. I don't care about the labels I don't care about the words I don't give a shit what you want to call yourself or not call yourself. Don't give a shit what room you sit in or don't sit in but you've got to get real about where you are and what you're doing because this isn't a game the only decision you have to make is if you WanNa have a good life or if you WanNa have a horrible life that's what it comes down to and then figuring out. What do you have to do to make that commitment? A real commitment. What do you have to do on a daily basis to stay true to your commitment to not drink anymore? What is that GONNA take? What kind of team are you going to put together to support you because you have to have a team? You can't do it by yourself. If you WANNA just sit around in your house and isolate and lock yourself in your house and obsess about not drinking and just obsessed constantly. I'm not going to drink. I'm not going to drink. I'm not going to drink. I'M NOT GONNA go anywhere because I don't want to drink and I'm not going to go with that person because they want to drink and I'm not going to drink. I'M NOT GONNA. I'm not gonNA drink if that's what you're doing you're going to drink. It's not sustainable. This requires action. This requires having a support group. It requires having somebody that you can out to and you don't have to reach out and go. Oh my gosh. I'm really struggling. This is so awful. I'm really wanting to drink like it doesn't have to be dramatic. You can have somebody that you reach out to and go damn dude on board today. I'm really struggling being bored. Like the socks. I want to go do something. But everybody's drinking and I don't WanNA drink. It can be that simple. You can reach out to somebody and go. Hi How are you doing? How was your day instead of obsessing about yourself and wanting to talk about yourself maybe you just start a conversation talking about somebody else. Ask how they are asked how their day is and what that does is it makes you stop obsessing about your obsession. So what are you have to do every day to be committed to your commitment of not drinking? What does that require?.

"I hope you're having a fantastic week. This week has been a busy one for me and a little later in this episode I want to catch you up on everything <unk> happening in my world and all the great things I have coming up for you. I know some of you are finding yourself in a spot that is super uncomfortable and stressful feeling like a failure wondering if you're ever going to able to figure out this sobriety thing and I remember being in that exact same position I even in my most unhealthy times I actually believed that I was defective like broken beyond repair and and my connection to alcohol literally made no sense. I couldn't grasp why I kept doing it. Even though I was watching it destroy my life I was watching myself deteriorate and <unk>. I felt powerless like I just didn't know what the hell to do. No matter how much I hated alcohol and I really hated alcohol like the last couple of years of my drinking I hated it. I was so resentful because I felt like it had this total power and control over me and I couldn't stop it in even with all that resentment is still kept on drinking and I'm talking about this for two reasons one because I'm always trying to come up with new ways that I can serve you and can help you with good information and habits to build and a community full of support so you know you aren't alone and I have some really exciting things. I'm working on that. You're going to love and to because today's topic is rock rock bottom. Have you hit it. And where do you go from there. In rock bottom is like this figurative place we hit that signals. It's time to make a change right. It's usually very uncomfortable and unexpected and and and it's different for everybody. I don't ever want you to get hung up on thinking that rock bottom has to be some crazy dramatic event like mine was there are millions of people in the world who have a rock bottom moment moment that didn't land them in the hospital jail and I think we put so much weight on the term rock bottom that you start to think it's only rock bottom. If it's hugely dramatic or life threatening you know some some sort of crazy extravaganza and that is just simply not the case. You know one of my favorite rock bottom stories is my friend Jen couch. <hes> jen couch has sober cysts and she did a podcast with me. She's episode Oh twenty nine. If you want to check that one out that JEN has this really beautiful story of a family live being married raising kids a beautiful home full live she's active and for all intents intents and purposes. She's happy right in the midst of the sort of American dream story. She noticed that she was drinking more than she was comfortable with and she didn't feel good about it. She felt this huge like distance in her life like her words didn't match her actions like during the day she was doing yoga and eating healthy and drinking those dreaded green vegetable protein gene shakes and she was living a life she was proud of <hes> setting a healthy example for her family and friends and at night she was manipulating her time and feelings with wine right overdrinking feeling really crappy crappy the next morning where she would go right back into painting the picture of the happy healthy yoga mom. She didn't fall apart. She didn't get a D._U._i.. She didn't get in trouble with her husband. Her family didn't do an intervention on her her. There was no drama or chaos Jin hit her rock bottom moment she recognized. She wasn't proud of the choices she was making and she wasn't comfortable with how prominent alcohol had become in her. Life and she wanted to be better. That's it and I love talking about that too. How prominent alcohol had become in her life because for me? You guys have heard me talk about my story where like the very beginning of me realizing leising. I had a problem with alcohol was realizing my relationship with alcohol was different in realizing that it sat front and center in my life more so than it did for my friends right. I just knew my relationship with alcohol was different and what I want to focus on for a minute on that part I said about not being proud of the choices she was making is remember the episode about poking the bear. The bear is my alcoholism and as long as I'm sober he's in hibernation and I want him to stay in hibernation in anything I do that. I'm not proud of is poking that bear in tempting him to wake up right alcohol alcohol needs you to feel bad about yourself. It's the only way it can thrive and maintain control..
