Respecting yourself enough to change with Josh Cunningham from the Waifs In this episode I was so honoured to chat with Josh Cunningham, guitarist and song writer from Aussie band The Waifs. Josh quit drinking at 28 years old and has been sober for 20 years.  We chatted about his relationship with alcohol and how realising early on that he would get &quot;the can&apos;t stops&quot; and after a few too many nights of not remembering the night before decided to give alcohol away.   We talked about the importance of self love, connection to source and playing it forward.  I also shared with Josh an embarrassing drunk and annoying  fan girl moment that has plagued me for ages and led me to avoid him and his band for years.  It was great to make a mends with that one!! haha.  I loved this chat with such a down to earth, kind, insightful and beautiful human being.  To find out more about Josh and what he is up to go to https://joshcunningham.comTo follow him on insta go to @joshcunninghamofficial Or Facebook go to https://www.facebook.com/joshcunninghamofficialTo listen to the song Gillian that Josh wrote for his Mum you can listen here.  I love this live version. https://open.spotify.com/track/2S3TJmmhunWmwQwFmBAffL?si=417f151ace8e41aeI also found a version on youtube with Josh singing the last verse... gorgeous. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dnzXpSx2lYfor more resources go or to join the next HIQA challenge go towww.iquitalcohol.com.auFollow HIQA insta @howiquitalcohol This podcast was brought to you by Monday Distillery https://mondaydistillery.com/Music for Monday Distillery ads by Ash Grunwaldwww.ashgrunwald.comMusic for Podcast intro and outro written by Danni Carr performed by Mr CassidyIf you are struggling with physical dependancy on alcohol consider contacting a local AA meeting or a drug and alcohol therapist.   Always consult a GP before stopping alcohol.

The worst night of my life, saved my life with Steve Woollett In this episode I chat with ex-boxer Steve Woollett who has been living sober for 14 years after an incident that changed his life.  Steve uses talking about the worst night of his life which he now sees as the best of night of his life as a driver to stay sober.  He talks about it whenever he can to keep it at the forefront of his mind but has found that through talking about his past, he enables people to confront their own fears and stories around addiction.  A powerful story from a wonderful human being who has truly done the work to change his conditioning. for more resources go or to join the next HIQA challenge go towww.iquitalcohol.com.auFollow HIQA insta @howiquitalcohol This podcast was brought to you by Monday Distillery https://mondaydistillery.com/Music for Monday Distillery ads by Ash Grunwaldwww.ashgrunwald.comMusic for Podcast intro and outro written by Danni Carr performed by Mr CassidyIf you are struggling with physical dependancy on alcohol consider contacting a local AA meeting or a drug and alcohol therapist.   Always consult a GP before stopping alcohol.
Seeing yourself as you really are with Patrick Kennedy In this episode I chat with 29 year old Patrick Kennedy on the day of his 1 year of sobriety milestone.  I loved this chat, for such a young guy Patrick has so much wisdom, which only comes from someone who has pulled themselves through the darkness. We talk about asking for help when you just can&apos;t say the words, seeing yourself as you really are,  our shared hatred of small talk and how that fuels most social anxiety (in our not so expert opinion), cracking yourself open in front of people, the importance of connection and seeking professional help. Patrick can be found on Instagram at pkenners_This podcast was brought to you by Monday Distillery https://mondaydistillery.com/Music for Monday Distillery ads by Ash Grunwaldwww.ashgrunwald.comMusic for Podcast intro and outro written by Danni Carr performed by Mr Cassidyfor more resources go or to join the next HIQA challenge go towww.iquitalcohol.com.auFollow HIQA insta @howiquitalcohol If you are struggling with physical dependancy on alcohol consider contacting a local AA meeting or a drug and alcohol therapist.   Always consult a GP before stopping alcohol.
