Telling the Truth, and Real Connection on the Euphoric podcast

Fellow coach and founder of Euphoric Alcohol-Free, Karolina Rzadkowolska hosts a blog and podcast about the euphoric and vibrant life that she has discovered. We had a great conversation a while back that is still very relevant.

Some of the topics that we cover in our conversation:

How drinking ‘helped’ me start my own business by driving me to isolate myself.

Empty friendships, and how I felt like a stranger in my home town of San Francisco.

Feeling sad and frustrated, and not really knowing why.

Being a “normal”, successful person while drinking alcohol every day.

The subtle messages from my intuition that I was getting for many years about my drinking, and how it gradually became clear that alcohol was starting to be less compatible with who I was becoming.

How finally seeing the connection between alcohol and depression was the last straw that pushed me to experiment with a period of not drinking.

How “it’s not normal to drink poison, and it’s not abnormal to not drink alcohol.”

How alcohol pickles us, keeping us preserved in stasis, constantly having to go back to square oneā€”and our normal state is of constant change and evolution.

How I found what’s next for me not by focusing on the answer to the question, but by living well and being ready.

By telling the truth about what we’re doing, and building building real connections, we can create a life that we don’t need to escape from.
