The Unashamed Alcoholic

The Unashamed Alcoholic

Working to take the shame and stigma out of talking about alcoholism, addiction and recovery through open and honest conversation. My name is Becca, I'm an alcoholic and I am proud of it. Proud because it's changed my life for the better but unfortunately it is still socially unacceptable to talk about being an alcoholic - let's change that. Join me as I chat with people about how they came forward publicly about their sobriety, how their lives are different today and what are some misconceptions and stigmas around talking about alcoholism, addiction and recovery.
