In this episode of the Powerful Stories podcast, I share a beautiful conversation with Danni Carr from How I Quit Alcohol. Danni is a woman I greatly admire and have had the privilege to connect with through BODfest, the exciting min-fest of self-love which covers health topics including mental health, with the aim of nurturing and celebrating confidence in all of us.
I’m particularly excited about this conversation because I believe the issue we’re discussing affects everyone, no matter their age, race, nationality, sexuality. At some point, we all have to deal with alcohol and our relationship with it.
Danni and I talk about why she decided to quit alcohol, and how it changed her life. Becoming sober helped her to become present and happy in her own skin, as she focused on prioritising herself and her happiness.
Today, this incredible woman has ditched the fake glow that can come from alcohol, and instead brightly shines her own light by coming from a place of beautiful authenticity. Danni has learnt to sit in her own uncomfortable feelings and feel them, rather than trying to escape them through alcohol.
I particularly love how Danni observes that alcohol takes you so far away from yourself, while sobriety brings you back. She shares that her evolution is still a work in progress, and that she’s perfectly imperfect, but much more in her power these days. This is a woman who feels complete and happy in who she is, and she truly radiates this. Enjoy!
