Ep.41 | David Hampton: Finding Wellness In Sobriety
Play • 34 min

Sobriety can be a miraculous and challenging  change for someone stuck in the throws of addiction. It turns everything you once thought you knew upside down, inviting  you to see the world in a new light and step into radical wellness.

Sobriety is certainly not a journey for the faint of heart.. It is not a one-time put-down-the-thing type of deal. It is a one-day-at-a-time deep dive into emotional, spiritual, and relational healing and humility.  The heartbeat of sobriety is honesty, openness, willingness and a lot of surrendering of control.

This week, I am delighted to welcome David Hampton to the table. David is an author of two books, host of The Positive Sobriety Podcast, and a certified professional recovery coach. As a result of his own recovery he not only confronted his own alcoholism and the wreckage it caused. He redefined his spiritual understanding, coming away as a renewed man with a story to share: a story found at the intersection of desperation and gratitude.

David and I tackle how difficult it can be, and critical it is,  to look within to achieve transformative wellness and freedom in sobriety. Join us as we talk about life after the miracle and how it is a daily journey into wholeness.

Here’s what we connect on:

  • How putting down the numbing substances is only the first step on the long journey to recovery + the disruptive nature of sobriety (2:15)
  • The true meaning of “getting well” in the context of sobriety (7:45)
  • Choosing wellness + finding the honesty and strength throughout sobriety to fight for your wellness (14:07)
  • I share an incredibly symbolic story of the impact and wreckage of addiction (16:06-18:24)
  • The addictive and toxic culture that promotes comparative thinking on social media today (22:58)
