Real Stories of Recovery: Linda's Journey to Sobriety

Anything bad that's ever happened in my life has been alcohol-related, and it's not anything that anybody's ever done to me or bad luck.
Linda is a woman in successful long-term recovery from alcohol addiction, and in this episode of The Bubble Hour, she shares her inspiring journey to sobriety with host Jean McCarthy. Linda talks candidly about the impact that alcohol had on her life and the many places it took her that 'weren't pretty.' She shares her experience of getting sober in 2011, together with her husband, and the pair have stayed alcohol-free together ever since. Linda's story is one of hope and resilience, and she hopes that by sharing it, she can help others take charge of their own lives.
One of the key takeaways from Linda's story is the importance of staying accountable in recovery.

Linda has since learned that there is no shame in struggling and that it's essential to support others in their recovery journeys without judgment or shame.
Linda and Jean also discuss the role of spirituality in recovery and the importance of finding what works for you. Linda shares that she's considering becoming a recovery coach, and Jean recommends several books that have been helpful for her in her own journey.
