I am joined this week by Gillian Tietz, host of the Sober Powered Podcast. Gillian created her podcast after conquering her addiction and feeling genuinely happy for the first time in her life. Now, it’s her mission to pass on the knowledge she’s gained about the science and psychology of addiction, helping others break the chains of alcohol abuse.
She shares the story about why she started drinking and the effects it had on her mental health. Gillian also tells us why she decided to start learning, writing, and eventually launching a podcast about addiction.
We wrap up our discussion talking about the cause Gillian is supporting, To Write Love on Her Arms. TWLOHA is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide.
