Breaking Down Addiction in Detox Podcast Episode 24: Siege

Once we tell people where we've been, once we step into the light, once we start telling our truth, that monster it's not. But the more we stand our ground and the more we stop retreating, the more we dismantle our walls, the less it wants us, the more we stand our ground.
Denise Walker is back with another episode of Detox Podcast, and this time, she explores the themes of isolation, fear, and addiction in Episode 24: Siege. Denise, an author and poet, uses her poetry collection 'Pick Your Poison' as a means to dive deep into addiction and recovery. In this episode, Denise shares her personal experience with shutting herself off from the world and existing only inside her head. She talks about how alcohol shut her off from being an open person and how it took hard truths for her to realize that she needed to be vulnerable and truthful to overcome her addiction.
One of the key takeaways from this episode is that addiction can happen to anyone, and it's important to stand our ground and break down our walls to overcome it. Denise talks about the monster that comes every night and how it wants to make us feel surrounded, helpless, and like there's nothing we can do to save ourselves. But the more we stand our ground and stop retreating, the more we dismantle our walls, and the less the monster wants us.
Denise also talks about the importance of yoga in strengthening the spirit and body and how telling our truth and stepping into the light can help us overcome addiction. She encourages listeners to be radically different and brave in breaking their patterns and dismantling their walls. She acknowledges that it's not an easy process, but it's worth it to be vulnerable and truthful.
Overall, Detox Podcast Episode 24: Siege is an inspiring, empowering, and informative episode that teaches listeners about the importance of vulnerability, bravery, and truth-telling in overcoming addiction. It's a must-listen for anyone who wants to break their patterns and dismantle their walls to live a healthier and happier life.
