    Im joined on One For The Road this week by Barbara Williams who ditched alcohol in February 2021.She grew up in the UK in the university city of Cambridge, with her parents and four sisters. Remembering that alcohol was mostly used happily at family celebrations. Barbara remembers thinking ‘I can’t wait to go out, like my older sisters’, who were going out at the weekends dancing enjoying themselves. The first time she was drunk was at 14 years old, throwing up in the street, blacking out and feeling embarrassed, being out of control drunk was not part of her teens after that incident.  She recalls going to pubs in the 80s without ID ordering a malibu and coke and cycling to the pub every Friday with friends for the pub disco. After becoming a young mum shifting Barbara’s priorities meant that alcohol wasn’t prevalent during the rest of her teens. Barbara found the rave scene in the 90s, followed by noughties ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘Ladette’ culture where her drinking consumption increased from going out at the weekend binge drink to drinking at home during the week. Barbara sprinkles sober inspiration sharing her colourful posts and stories on IG @sober_in_colour She is soon to be launching a Facebook group exclusive to women of colour www.facebook.com/groups/soberincolourViva Coaching with Barbara, where she is helping people who have already made the decision to quit alcohol or are thinking about it https://vivacoaching.co.uk/bookings/https://www.instagram.com/sober_in_colour/ If you want to connect with me via Instagram, you can find me on the instahandle @Soberdave https://www.instagram.com/soberdave/or via my website https://davidwilsoncoaching.com/Provided below are links for services offering additional help and advice.www.drinkaware.co.uk/advice/alcohol-support-serviceshttps://nacoa.org.uk/Show producer- Daniella Attanasio-MartinezInstagram - @TheDaniellaMartinezhttps://www.instagram.com/thedaniellamartinez/www.instagram.com/grownuphustle

    This week on One For The Road i am joined by Andy Stone. After an early ADHD diagnosis in his teens Andy struggled greatly through 2 school expulsions and thus had an early introduction to drugs and alcohol. Through his 20’s and early 30’s unable to hold down a long-term job or to succeed in the classroom the shame of failure and the guilt of under achieving caused prolonged bouts of victim mindset and poor mental health. Being unable to cope Andy sought help from both private and NHS mental health workers and was prescribed Ritalin, Valium and SSRI’s in conjunction with an ever increasing drinking tolerance and cocaine habit. Until, at the age of 34, Andy’s health reached the point that serious steps needed to be taken! Once through residential rehab and into the fellowships of AA, NA and OA Andy was then able to make a drastic recovery! On his new trajectory not only has Andy been able to educate himself as to the reasons why his neurodiversity caused him to become addicted to drugs and alcohol, but to utilize that same condition to propel him into the record books. Andy has elevated his health and fitness to the level of setting a Guinness World Record in endurance triathlons, swim with 23 species of shark without a cage and he now training to swim the English Channel later this year with plans to go on and become the first person to ‘officially’ swim the Atlantic! With a documentary of his story due out later this year, a budding career in pro speaking and mentoring neurodiverse teens in alternative education Andy is out help others to educate themselves so as no to fall into the same traps he did.If you want to connect with me via Instagram, you can find me on the instahandle @Soberdave https://www.instagram.com/soberdave/or via my website https://davidwilsoncoaching.com/Provided below are links for services offering additional help and advice.www.drinkaware.co.uk/advice/alcohol-support-serviceshttps://nacoa.org.uk/Show producer- Daniella Attanasio-MartinezInstagram - @TheDaniellaMartinezhttps://www.instagram.com/thedaniellamartinez/www.instagram.com/grownuphustle

  • 116. Allie Bailey

    01:11:36
    This week i am joined on One For The Road by Allie Bailey who is an ultrarunner, coach, speaker and podcaster who has run in some of the most extreme places in the world. In 2024 she released her first book “There is No Wall”, a brutally honest, sometimes shocking account of alcoholism, depression and severe mental breakdowns that almost cost her her life. She would like it to be known that despite this doom worthy introduction, she is “super good fun.” Allie tends to swear quite a lot. Allie was the first woman to run 100 miles across frozen Lake Khövsgöl in Mongolia and to run the full length of the Panama Canal. She has crossed the inhospitable Namib Desert three times, run the length of the Outer Hebrides and completed a 1,000-mile off-road version of the classic Land’s End to John o’Groats route in just thirty days. Allie has finished over 200 marathons and ultramarathons all over the world, but the most remarkable thing about all of these achievements is that she accomplished most of them while battling depression and alcoholism. Although running ultimately became the vehicle that helped buy Allie the time to recover from a number of severe mental health breakdowns, it did not save her. In fact, there were times when it made her battle all the more difficult. After a seismic mental health crisis in 2021, Allie finally admitted to herself and those around her that she was an alcoholic and started her recovery. She left behind a dream career with major record labels and adventure companies and now works as a coach with a broad range of runners and endurance athletes, helping them unlock their full potential. Instagram: @ab_runsWebsite: www.alliebailey.co.ukBook links: Publisher: https://www.adventurebooks.com/products/there-is-no-wall-allie-Tour: https://www.speakersfromtheedge.com/theatre-tours/2024/allie-bailey-rwsyThis weeks episode is sponsored by https://www.ethicalcontent.co.uk/If you want to connect with me via Instagram, you can find me on the instahandle @Soberdave https://www.instagram.com/soberdave/or via my website https://davidwilsoncoaching.com/Provided below are links for services offering additional help and advice.www.drinkaware.co.uk/advice/alcohol-support-serviceshttps://nacoa.org.uk/Show producer- Daniella Attanasio-MartinezInstagram - @TheDaniellaMartinezhttps://www.instagram.com/thedaniellamartinez/www.instagram.com/grownuphustle
