TSG Ep238 - Why Treating Anxiety with Alcohol Doesn't Fu%$ing Work! | Hairstylist Stacey Tickner
Stacey Tickner is a hairstylist from Sacramento California. Her first experience with alcohol was at the age of 13, and her drinking career began at the age of 23. What started as just “social drinking” escalated to “problem drinking” over a 10 year period, which left her unable to moderate her own use. As the desire to stop drinking couldn’t overpower the impulse to continue, she realized that she needed help. In 2015 Stacey began to seek Recovery in various forms to aid her in her process towards a life free of consequences caused by addiction to alcohol. She has found great value in listening to Recovery podcasts and has begun a path of implementing a Buddhist approach known as Refuge Recovery.

TSG Ep292 - Why Your Kids Need A Sober Dad
There is nothing better than being a sober dad, I wouldn't change it for anything in the world. That said, some days being a sober Dad is challenging to say the least, and sometimes that little voice still says Shane, how great would it be to just crack a few beers right now, tie on a healthy one and let it all just float away. It’s definitely a thought that occasionally passes through, and thats exactly what I let it do. I acknowledge it, I let it pass through, and then I tell somebody about it. There’s many dads out there who can have a beer every now and then and be just fine. I’m talking to the everyday drinker dad, the dad who knows or doesn't know its an issue, the dad who wants to do better and be better, the dad who wants to cut back, the dad who wants to quit, but doesn't know how. So how do we become sober dads?
