A recent article featured on Huffington Post has been making it’s way around social media. “The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered, and It Is Not What You Think” caused a stir for us and others in recovery. In this episode we discuss why we think the author has it all wrong.
Today we welcome guest, Allison Hudson, a blogger living in Charlotte, North Carolina. She started her blog, It’s a Lush Life, as part of a living amends to her younger brother, Will, who died in April 2012 from a drug overdose. Allison checked into a 28-day treatment facility six weeks after her brother passed away and has been sober since June 2012. She writes honest and openly about her struggles with alcoholism, her life in recovery, dealing with the untimely death of her brother and finding faith through it all. Today, Allison considers herself grateful to be an alcoholic and hopes to spread awareness, evoke compassion, and inspire those still struggling and suffering from alcoholism/addiction.
