005 - Through the eyes of the drinker

Welcome to episode 5 of The Two Roads Travelled Podcast. Today you'll get an alternative view of alcohol misuse, a different perspective maybe one you might not have heard before or that might make you second think an alcoholic. No one chooses this path, not everyone becomes an alcoholic, it’s a bit like not everyone is diabetic. The struggles and battles an alcoholic goes through can be soul destroying, sometimes life and death are your only options. There are survivors in addiction, sadly not everyone makes it. But the survivor’s try to help others because they have the real understanding, and a way of giving back in their own recovery. Today we have John McMahon with us talking about his experience and the addictive personality linked so closely to addiction and the way it affected him and people around him at the time. John is a trained counsellor, ex university lecturer and recovering alcoholic. John runs Bottled-up with his wife Lou supporting those affected and their families. Offering an online membership as well as one to one sessions.   Get in touch on Instagram: @johuey_acoa or follow on Twitter @joanne_huey  If you want to know more about alcohol misuse, find out answers to the many questions you have and learn some tried and tested self help tips from the child of a alcoholic then order a copy of Jo's book Transition here: bit.ly/JHtransition  You can also join the Change Your Mind community of Facebook: facebook.com/groups/CYM2017  If you'd like to ask any questions about today's episode feel free to email jo@johuey.co.uk or call on: UK (+44) 07732 403305
