Video; Streaming Video; Online
A follow-up to What Made Me Stop Drinking, this program investigates how those same people - recovering alcoholics - actually managed to stop drinking. They took different routes and found their own sources of support. Mandy - I hated my life, I hated myself. I hated everybody I knew and everything I did. Something inside of me said I'm meant for more on this planet than to just drink myself to death. Emily- There's a lot of challenges in life and I used to drink for all of them. So now, I'm still learning different ways to cope. Scott - I'm one of the lucky ones who hasn't had any permanent effect from my drinking physically. Hector - I feel good about myself now - I am living the life I always wanted. This program also features Susan Diamond Potts - M.A., RCC - a clinical psychologist specializing in addiction treatment. Addiction is cunning, baffling, and powerful. People have to have enough resources to support their recovery. From ...I stopped dead turkey... to ...I stopped a hundred times..., the way they managed this all important challenge differs widely. Out of the four people interviewed, three whole-heartedly attended AA meetings and found this instrumental in their recovery, with individual variations. But one person had his own method, which will surprise the viewer! The central message of this program is that it is possible to stop and to rediscover life without alcohol.
