In this week’s SHAIR Recovery Coaching call, we helped Chris navigate the uncomfortable world of boundaries. At home during the COVID-19 quarantine with his two adult sons, Chris has found himself engaging in maladaptive coping mechanisms to handle his frustrations.

Even after nine years of sobriety from addiction, he's fearful that his kids still see him as the "Alcoholic Dad." With strained relationships, unspoken feelings, and living in close quarters, he's forced to take a look at the frayed relationships he doesn't want to lose. He must ask himself if it's worth holding onto them, or if he should begin to set boundaries and risk having his sons in his life to be seen in a light that he undoubtedly deserves.

In this week’s SHAIR Recovery Coaching call, you’ll learn:

  • How to identify negative patterns we’ve developed to cover up feelings of inadequacy.
  • How to effectively set boundaries with family members.
  • How to have deep conversations with loved ones about past addictive behavior
  • How to get our needs met when we’ve been neglecting them for years, only to please others

How do we combat the inner critic that tells us we’re no good?

Negative self-talk is something we all have, and it’s one thing that prevents us from fulfilling our full potential.

It’s in the moments of self-doubt, fear, and being uncomfortable with ourselves that we created self-soothing in the first place, and it’s in these moments we crave relief. If we’re not equipped with the proper tools, we can start to romance a drink, a drug or an unhealthy behavior. Even though we know it’s not good for us, when we give in the negative self-talk becomes louder and our inner critic becomes harsher.

There’s a window of time in these moments where we can begin to pause, rethink, and reteach ourselves new habits to join the opposing forces of the internal battle inside of us, all while finding relief and self-soothing other ways. 

Join Omar Pinto in this week’s SHAIR Recovery Coaching call as we ask hard questions, learn ways to shred the facade of the inner critic and empower ourselves to live out our full potential and combat negative self-talk

With no higher power or 12-step work, Meredith Atwood white-knuckled sobriety. After substance abuse, suicide attempts, and binge eating issues, she had realization that she would be dead within a year, and made the decision to stop drinking cold turkey. Growing up in a religious cult, Meredith couldn’t subscribe to the thought of surrendering. After compensating for her behavior with triathlons and Ironman competitions, she came to the point where she had to sit with herself and begin to truly heal. 

As a former attorney, Meredith Atwood is a podcaster, speaker, and author of The Year of No Nonsense, and Host of “The Same 24 Hours” podcast. She’s been featured in The Boston Globe, The New York Post, the Seattle Times, and recovery advocate and contributing writer for Psychology Today.

Holding onto the belief that we all have our own personal brands of “no nonsense,” in this inspiring conversation, Meredith takes us through the exploration of getting out of the way of our own personal happiness. 

“Many of us don’t know how to process uncomfortable feelings and we want to run. Sitting with yourself is terrifying and the hardest thing I've had to do. I’m alive, I made it another day, and it’s really one day at a time.”

Setting effective boundaries is hard. In this week’s SHAIR recovery coaching call, we helped Brandi navigate boundaries with her Mother.

It’s completely normal for all of us to expect our parents or loved ones to be loving people. However, when addiction, trauma, and other issues come into play, we can begin to feel responsible for our loved one's emotional state - fueling codependency. When this happens, many of us find ourselves in that all-or-nothing thinking. Do we sever the relationship for good, or give into unhealthy patterns? Once we do some healing on our end, there may be a middle ground we can learn to find.

Setting effective boundaries gives individuals and family members the chance to get to know one another with mutual respect, form closer bonds, and continue to foster connection. Once we’re able to recognize that we’re not responsible for our loved one’s emotional state, we can begin to set effective boundaries by reframing our relationship, detaching with love, and getting support from those around us we trust.

Setting boundaries is a continuous process but can be extremely effective if we learn how to detach with love, and reframe the way we view these relationships. Don’t miss this in depth and emotional SHAIR Recovery Coaching call with Life Coach, Omar Pinto.

At 38, Amberly Lago was a personal trainer, avid runner, and sponsored by Nike. 

However, she never expected her life to turn upside down. Hit by an SUV, she underwent 34 surgeries to save her leg from amputation. Diagnosed with an incurable disease dubbed the “suicide disease” she lost her business, self-confidence, and dealing with chronic-pain in her leg quickly spiraled her into addiction. 

Too scared to live, too scared to die, and a flicker of determination left, Amberly asked herself if she was going to sit back and play the victim or choose to be resilient and face unresolved trauma, past sexual abuse, and push forward to heal from chronic pain. 

Today, Amberly Lago is a health and wellness coach, TEDx speaker, and a leading expert in the field of resilience and transformation. She is the best-selling author of “True Grit and Grace” and empowers people around the world by sharing how she turned a tragedy into triumph. 

Through her book, coaching methods, and workshops she has curated unique tools to teach others how to tap into their superpower of resilience and persevere through any of life’s challenges. She offers hope and solutions for anyone living in chronic pain to live life to the fullest. Amberly has most recently been featured on NBC’s The Today Show, The Doctors, Hallmark, and contributed to magazines such as Shape, Fit Pregnancy, Health, and Disability Magazine.  

Even if circumstances have narrowed life possibilities, Amberly’s story shows you can get through with grit and grace.

On this week’s Recovery Coaching call we helped Barbara, Jill, and Frank.

Barbara feels like she’s running on low-energy. Wanting to sleep a lot, she is having trouble finding motivation to participate in activities that are conducive to her recovery. However, when she partakes in her favorite craft, she feels more energized. The group helped Barbara come to the realization that our bodies communicate to us through emotions. If we’re frustrated in a situation, it’s our body's way of telling us the situation is no longer beneficial to our well-being and peace of mind. If we’re not energized, it is a good indicator that we need to focus our attention elsewhere. Bringing more self-awareness to our bodies, the group helped Barbara employ practical ways to let go of negative self-talk and put tools into place to shift her energy.

The group also helped Jill. Newly sober, Jill feels like she can’t be herself in social situations. Going into something unknown can cause undue stress and anxiety, but there are a few ways we can prepare. By taking on a service opportunity in social situations, we can alleviate social anxiety, help us stay busy, put our guard down, and allow us to have a good time. The group walks Jill through a number of other ways to connect with others and ease social anxiety. 

Lastly, the group helped Frank. As a writer, Frank has been having issues getting his creative juices flowing. By taking practical steps and going back to the basics, the group challenges his lack of creativity by giving Frank a simple prompt to begin writing about.

This week on the SHAIR Podcast, we’re joined by author and advocate, Erica C. Barnett. Erica had tried everything to stop drinking. Detox after detox, and treatment center after treatment center, she continued to find herself in a state of relapse. Stating that rock bottom is a lie, Erica believes that it is always possible to go lower than your lowest point. Tumultuous relationships, and empty vodka bottles hid throughout her apartment defined her life, acting as both her tormentors and closest friends. 

After waking up one day, Erica decided that she had enough. Reassessing her values and passions, she was able to transform her pain into purpose to help those in the same position she was once in and shares this inspiring and emotional story with us. 

Today, Erica C. Barnett is a veteran Seattle-based reporter covering politics, housing, homelessness and addiction for a variety of local and national publications and her own website, The C Is for Crank. Her book, Quitter: A Memoir of Drinking, Relapse, and Recover, is available now.

There are multiple pathways to recovery, including recovery coaching. In our first Recovery Coaching call, Omar Pinto introduced us to his style of recovery coaching and the concepts behind it. By holding space for others, and using our intuition to guide us, we can help others address struggles, find accountability, and process uncomfortable feelings. 

Today, we helped Tori begin to set effective boundaries with a friend. By taking part in self-care, setting effective boundaries can begin. The Recovery Coaching group held space for Tori by asking open-ended questions about her current situation and creating a sense of accountability and support by giving her self-care suggestions. 

We also helped Valerie address accountability. Asking herself if she really wants to stay sober, her desire to drink has never been so strong, and she feels recovery is far out of reach. With limited meetings and accountability, Valerie is faced with the fearful decision to walk the unknown path of a sober life. However, with guidance, the group assured that Valerie is not alone. The group also gave her new tools to help her sustain accountability and begin to create a support group around her to kickstart recovery. 

Lastly, the recovery coaching group helped Shannon navigate the uncomfortable world of anger. What resists, persists, and unfortunately releasing anger is something many of us were not taught as a child. Agitated, bitter and frustrated, Shannon is struggling to release anger from her past. Using techniques suggested by Omar Pinto, Shannon was guided and challenged with two different ways to release anger in a healthy way.

Is there a past hurt or toxic trauma that’s keeping you from being your best self? 

Whether it be a person, ex, principle, or a belief system, many of us are used to sitting across from doctors, therapists, and psychiatrists only to hear them tell us that there’s something wrong with us or we have a chemical imbalance.

This week on the SHAIR Podcast, we’re joined by Master Coach, Christine Hassler. Christine left her successful job as a Hollywood agent to pursue a life she could be passionate about. Christine believes once we get out of our own way, we can show up to make the meaningful impact we are here to make. Today, she teaches and inspires people around the world. 

Based on the belief that any human being has the power to transform, Christine also gives us thought-provoking insight into her release-writing and tantrum exercises. 

Where are you holding onto old resentments? How do you begin to heal past hurts? This inspiring conversation will help you answer those questions!

Today we are excited to have Holly Whitaker on The SHAIR Podcast. She was the co-host of the HOME podcast, the bestselling author of Quit Like a Woman, and the founder of Tempest, a holistic, evidence-based digital recovery platform

It’s not just people in addiction recovery who hit a bottom. We all will have that point of reckoning in our lives that will turn us inside out. The current pandemic will force many of us to reevaluate how we think about ourselves and the world.

Holly talks about her struggle with the desire to be numb and escape oneself. She tells us that as people in recovery, we can lead the way through the dark night of the soul, showing others not only how to survive, but to come out on the other side with a new level of self-awareness, empathy, and acceptance.

Did you know how powerful you are?

When we talk about addiction, we have to talk about overcoming odds. The idea of getting clean and sober seems impossible and the thought of living the rest of our lives in recovery can be paralyzing. But the world is bigger than us and our addictions, and people have to overcome all sorts of odds.

Oleg Lougheed is our guest today. He knows the annihilating power of alcoholism, the gnawing pain of starvation, and the isolation of being in a new land among a language he didn't understand. He is now a TEDx speaker and the host of the Overcoming Odds Podcast and is here to tell us how he climbed his way out of a hopeless fate.

Oleg has rewritten his story from a Russian orphanage to a rich and fulfilling life in the United States. How will you overcome the odds and rewrite your own story in recovery?

Dan Peres looked like he had a glamorous life. He was working in New York City in a great career as an elite journalist. No one knew that on the inside he was broken, alone, and terrified.

Dan Peres always sought relief from a cripplingly low self-esteem. He became instantly addicted to opioid painkillers when he was given them after a surgery, sending him into an addiction that demanded up to fifteen Vicodin at a time. Dan was putting everything in danger to feed his habit until he didn’t recognize who he was anymore.

Today, Dan is 12 years clean and has just released his book, As Needed for Pain: A Memoir of Addiction. He tells us his dark journey into the depths of prescription addiction, what he did to claw his way out, and how he found himself again.

Today we have Rebecca Daigle on The SHAIR Podcast. She’s been a member of the SRC since 2017 and has one unconventional story.

At first, alcohol was a fun compliment to Rebecca’s exotic life. But her addiction unconsciously evolved, turning into a Jekyll and Hyde division that brought her such despair, she felt like it would kill her.

Then Rebecca was slammed with a period of extreme pain and loss that brought her to her knees. Her anguish made her realize that she had a problem and she finally sought out a cure.

Today, Rebecca is grateful for her challenges. She now knows that when we embrace change, no matter how painful it is, our souls evolve beyond our limited perception of the world and we get to experience life on a whole new level.

In our society, we are taught to hide our emotions and feelings. Most of us feel isolated even when we’re among people. We pretend everything’s okay, using our accomplishments and material possessions to hide the suffering and inadequacy that plagues us. We become addicted to substances, objects, and behaviors, when the key to our happiness is inside us.

Today’s guest is Curt Clemenson. He's been clean and sober for 36 years. His life changed when he discovered who he really was and what he really wanted through the Twelve Steps. Once he began living according to his own values, life showed up for him in unbelievable ways. The inside work changed his outside world.

Curt says that the gifts of recovery are available to everyone, and you are not alone. Find out who you really are and design the life you were meant to have in recovery!

Melanie Curtin is a sex researcher and men’s coach. She talks about the huge role sex plays in our relationships and how it can affect our recovery. She explains how to confront past trauma and unravel innate sexual shame. She also tells us about fascinating somatic therapies that free emotional blocks from deep within the body, allowing us to open up to our partners and connect in deeper ways.
