2: HOPE WOODARD – Finding Connection and Community Through Sobriety (7 Days Sober)

  • Post category:Podcast

I am officially one-week sober! In this week’s episode, I had the incredible opportunity of interviewing my friend Hope Woodard to learn more about her decision to cut out alcohol from her life. We talked about SO much, including Hope’s views on the gray areas of sobriety, the ways in which meme culture has normalized binge drinking, dating while sober, how alcoholism leads to disconnection with oneself and one’s friends, and so much more. A huge theme of this podcast episode can be summarized by a quote I recently heard from Dr. BrenĂ© Brown: “The opposite of alcoholism isn’t sobriety. The opposite of alcoholism is connection.” I left my conversation with Hope feeling a huge sense of serenity, relief, and, one might say, solace. You can keep up with Hope’s life by following her on TikTok and Instagram @justhopinalong 🙂
