Can you beat the odds? The statistics aren’t exactly on our side. If we believe them does it justify a relapse? Or can we find the strength and support to sustain our recovery. Listen and Bizzy and Weezie give their advise on what has worked for them and how we can, through the biggest challenges, beat the odds.
Here is my podcast series, I hope you enjoy and come back every Tuesday for new content.
Richie and I talk about his journey of 18 months clean and sober and his latest quest which is, the Wellness Ride, you can find more information by clicking: The Wellness Ride is an 85 Day Athletic Art Installation. Basically Richie has designed the ride to educate the public on the accessibility of wellness and encourage individuals to invest in their own wellness, while also raising meals for the hungry across America. He will be documenting the intimate moments of this adventure through writing, images and good ole fashion pineapple dances.
The goal of the wellness ride is to raise 5,000 meals and empower individuals to invest in their own wellness.
Richie is very passionate about his sobriety, meditation and plant based diet. His enthusiasm and zest for life is contagious.

Weezie and I talk about vacationing and drinking.
Everywhere you turn someone is enjoying a cocktail.
What do you do if you are feeling uncomfortable? Do you have a plan?
Preventative maintenance can make all the difference.
Don’t dread it, embrace it and listen to our experiences and advice... to make your sober vacation the best vacation ever!
It’s Summer time and you want to drink and you know you shouldn’t….
What to do with your thoughts….
Feeling are feelings they are not facts…
Getting out of your head and be in the moment
This disease does not care if you are rich or poor!
It does not care if you have 3 months and then want to drink again or use again.
You only have a daily reprieve.
One day at a time.
Weezie and I talk about her experience with relapse and what it was like and how she got back.
Just because you relapse doesn’t mean you can’t get back on the wagon.
Here we have some suggestions and tips as to how you get back.
Please reach out with any questions or topic ideas to:
Keep getting Busy Living Sober.
We also want to thank all of our loyal listeners we are all on this journey together.
XO Bizzy and Weezie
Weezie and I talk about the thoughts running through our heads and how our head tells us lies!
The lies are always negative, we need to learn to not listen!
Talking to a friend or a loved one about how we are feeling rather than keeping things to ourselves is one of the key ingredients to a happy life.

Weezie and I talk about the Armor we carry when we are in our addiction.
Armor is shame, remorse and regret…
When you are sober you can let the armor go, it takes time but it is possible.
In the end when you let go you can be open to life and all of life’s possibilities.

Weezie has been going to the prison to visit the women that are incarcerated. On these visits she has learned a lot and shares with us what the inmates are going through.
What I found so surprising is that 100% of the people are there due to drugs and alcohol.
A lot are repeat offenders, some even question hitting rock bottom?
Very insightful podcast this week.
