Lindsay Sutherland Boal Episode S01 EPS 283

January 25, 2022

In the latest episode of the Empowerography Podcast, my guest is Lindsay Sutherland Boal. By all accounts I had it all... a beautiful family, a nice place to live, living in a great part of the world. However, life was just not pleasant as I had posted on social media. I was a heavy drinker and it was ruining my life. Just shy of the pandemic, I had a very normal drinking night with a mom friend. I had secretly been 'sober curious' for about 6 months - meaning I knew I had a drinking problem, was not ready to do anything about it but was ready to listen to how others did something about it. For me, January 23, 2020 was not a rock bottom. I didn't get a DUI, I didn't hurt anyone. I didn't lose my job - or any of the other things i told myself would have to happen when i had an alcohol problem that needed addressing. I didn't hit rock bottom. I hit ROCK ENOUGH. Enough of the nightly 3am shame game. Enough hating myself every day. Enough of numbing out from a life I had created. Enough passing the blame buck. Enough of saying "I thought I'd have more, be more, do more" by now. E.N.O.U.G.H. I knew what my problem was. I knew what I had to do. I knew I was the only one that could do it. So i broke up with the only thing that gave me a sense of self-worth.  I came to realize the Alcohol was not mending myself worth, it was stealing it, sip after sip. Day after day. Year after Year. Since getting sober - which has been a roller coaster ride of discovery, I have uncovered and recovered parts of myself that I had totally forgotten about. Additionally, I got 30% pay increase, lost 30 pounds, went back to school, started a podcast, found my inner athlete (completed 4000KM this year alone), all my relationships have improved, my social circle has exploded with powerful purposeful women and I have founded a national movement to empower women to take back control of their lives from Alcohol - SHE WALKS CANADA. My life will never be the same. And that's ok. In fact, it's better than ok. It's epic. In this episode we discuss the sobriety journey, empowerment and clarity coaching, She Walks Canada, being sober curious and transformation.
