EP 559: Naked Life Story – Toni

Download EP 559 Transcript

Toni wasn’t much of a drinker in her teens or twenties. In fact, it took a major lifestyle change – a divorce, shared custody, dating, and a career change – to change how she drank. Toni tried AA, Intensive Outpatient Rehab, moderation and so much more to control her drinking but never felt connected – until she discovered This Naked Mind and The Alcohol Experiment. Annie Grace and Toni discuss how daily drinking becomes normal, the irony of people being more interested in living caffeine free rather than alcohol free, along with the rewards found in helping other people change their relationships with alcohol.
