This week's Unashamed Alcoholic guest is Doug Hempstead. If you live anywhere close to Ottawa, ON, chances are, you've heard Doug on the radio as CBC Ottawa's Traffic Specialist. What you may not be as familiar with is Doug's own story of sobriety.
I saw Doug post on Twitter a few months back that he was sober and the benefits he'd noticed already. His post got a lot of attention and support and I wanted to chat with him to learn about why he stopped drinking, what language he uses and how he sees life in sobriety now.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with Doug.
