How does a two-time felon, registered sex offender, disbarred attorney claw his way back to a normal life? Joseph W. Naus is a former guest and we are thrilled to have him back on the Recovery Revolution to do an exclusive live Q&A with our community members!

You might remember him as the author of Straight Pepper Diet about how at age 32, Joseph’s American Dream-life became a nightmare when his addictions to sex, alcohol and cigarettes collided and exploded.

"On Tuesday, I was a respected civil trial lawyer making six-figures. On Wednesday, I woke up handcuffed to a hospital bed charged with attempted murder...and then it got worse."

Joseph talks about the deal he made with the devil to get out of jail, being released into the wreckage his addictions caused, and the miracles that took place along the way. He also talks about his new follow-up memoir that details how he leaned into recovery and spirituality to become the grateful man he is today.

This is the age of internet entrepreneurs. Anyone can find a place to start a business on the web. Today we are psyched to talk to Tim Stoddart, the mastermind behind Sober Nation and the founder of Stodzy Internet Marketing.

After triumphing over addiction, Tim used his spirituality, his self-belief, and a slight chip on his shoulder to prove to the world and himself that he could be successful no matter what. He started Sober Nation just 7 months after getting clean.

Though this passion project never became a significant source of income for Tim, it was the guinea pig and learning experience that spawned his profitable endeavors.

If you ever thought about starting your own business, you might want to take notes on Tim's entrepreneurial journey!

Welcome to another episode of Recovery Revolution (formerly The SHAIR Podcast)! Patrick Holbert has been making his living in NYC since 2003.

He’s also a Sober Coach who is celebrating ten years free from alcohol.

Patrick grew up with friction in the home and began drinking to escape his uncomfortable feelings. He suffered from a low self-esteem and alcohol made him feel cooler and more confident. Patrick is a chronic perfectionist who also used sex, porn, and food to quell his emotions. Limiting screen time is his newest challenge.

Patrick shares his experience about being okay with not being perfect. He talks about staying sober in even the most bizarre and awkward situations. He also talks about how he left the life he thought he was supposed to live to chase his dream of being a comedian.

Welcome to another episode of Recovery Revolution (formerly The SHAIR Podcast)! Today we have Liz Rockwood. She was introduced to the show by one of our most impactful guests, Ken Rivord, and has since become an obsessed listener. Liz is also a member of the SRC and super active in the SHAIR Sobriety network.

 

Liz’s love affair with alcohol started with her first bottle of Zima. Her drinking kept getting progressively and dangerously worse. She suffered depression, abuse, divorce, and 5 DUIs. Bad stuff just kept happening to her and she took no responsibility for her life.

 

Since she found sobriety, Liz has transformed herself into a new person and sets an example of all the different pathways addicts and alcoholics can use to create a strong foundation of recovery.

So many SHAIR listeners are struggling with chronic pain and back problems. The traditional solution is opiates, which are killing people. Today we have Fred Amir on the show. He is the founder and president of Health Solutions and the author of Rapid Recovery from Back and Neck Pain: A Nine-Step Recovery Plan.

Fred endured his own experience with crippling back pain and discovered that doctors had no answers for him. In his search for a cure for back pain, he found out that 85% of back pain can’t be diagnosed. He also discovered that out of 10,000 back surgeries, only 1% are successful. It seems hopeless for back pain sufferers, but Fred has developed a process to cure back pain without drugs. Join us as Fred Amir walks us through his Rapid Recovery plan!

Peggy K. is a longtime listener of the show. She is active in the SHAIR Sobriety Network and a member of the SRC. I heard some of Peggy’s story in our SRC online meetings and I told her she had to come on the show and share it with our audience.

Peggy and her husband Joel have been sweethearts since they were 16 years old. They got married together, had their son together, and bought their first home together. They also started drinking and using together. It was a love affair that lasted decades, but their seemingly typical American life became more and more soaked with alcohol until they couldn’t enjoy it any more. In the end, they didn’t see a way out. They planned to kill themselves together.

This story goes from innocent love to dark destruction to sobriety. You don’t want to miss this show!

OK folks today for our 200th episode we have Sara McGee joining us on The SHAIR Podcast! Sara is one of my dear friends.  She's an active member in the SRC and the SHAIR Sobriety Network. Sara is a born leader who has just celebrated 2 years of sobriety and has an incredibly strong foundation of recovery that touches every aspect of her life.  I’m honored to have her on the show.

Sara was a hardcore blackout drinker from the beginning. She felt everyone knew how life worked except her. Normal people seemed to have a sense of peace she couldn't find. So she pretended to have it together. She strived to be helpful and non-confrontational. She was a perfectionist and a high achiever who accomplished all her goals, but she was always afraid of being found out and she drank to cope with the anxiety.

From college, to career, to motherhood—drinking ruled her life. Until one day when she heard a voice say, "You don't have to..."

Jeanne Foot is a mental health advocate and certified addiction counsellor and recovery specialist, with over a decade serving individuals and families in the Toronto area, across the globe, and online.

Her own struggles with the nature of addiction and years spent navigating the mental health care system as an advocate for her child has enabled her to become a change agent and a mentor in transformation for others.

Jeanne is the product of three generations of trauma in her middle-class family. Her life was chaotic out of the gate. When she became a mother, the same thing happened with her children. Jeanne had to innovate to help herself and her family.

Jeanne believes that willpower can only take you so far when it comes to recovery. The brain can’t take care of everything. The issues are in the tissues, and she has found healing by integrating movement and breath to release the trauma from her body.

OK folks today we have Paul Fuhr joining us on The SHAIR Podcast.

Paul was referred to me by our good friend Anna David and she writes this email to me…

Paul is one of the best writers I know. He wrote for me at AfterParty and he has a book coming out in May called Bottle Neck, that may be the best book about recovery I’ve ever read.

Paul Fuhr is an addiction recovery writer whose work has appeared in The Fix, AfterParty Magazine, The Literary Review and The Live Oak Review, among others.

Paul was an alcoholic who didn't realize how ridiculous his life was until he got sober. Cracking open a beer while he watched morning cartoons with his son, forgetting to pick up his kids, or showing up at daycare with alcohol on his breath were all normal for him. Now he is rebuilding relationships and is a voice in recovery with his articles and addiction memoir Bottleneck.
