One for the road.
Joining us on this weeks episode of One For The Road is Michael Sargood.
Michael is the founder of the British alcohol-free news and events website SoberSocials.co.uk.
At the depths of his alcohol addiction, he was drinking up to a litre of neat vodka per night and was diagnosed as being alcohol dependent.; despite this he managed to hold down a good job until the last few months of his addiction.
He decided to quit alcohol in March 2020 and went to live with his parents for the first three months of his recovery. He was sober seven months before relapsing in October 2020. That "one" drink lasted four months and saw him placed under the care of the local mental health team. On 17 February 2021, after losing over 24 hours to blackout, he went sober again. That was the last time he drank. This time round, he is trying to recover differently. Instead of just "subtracting" substances, people and places, he is focussing on adding things to his life: new friends, interests, ambitions.
