Build a Life You Don’t Want to Escape From | Holly Whitaker

Do The Thing, with Whole30's Melissa Urban - May 28, 2019 - 31:36

Holly Whitaker (she/her), is the founder of Tempest, Inc., a digital platform for the treatment and support of alcohol mis-users. She believes recovery isn’t about discipline, willpower, or even abstaining, but building a life you don’t want to escape from. Today, we’ll discuss her own experience with alcohol and recovery, the problems with how drinking is portrayed in the media and pop culture, my own “I’m not drinking right now” experiment, and how you can explore your relationship with alcohol without judgment or shame.
