3. Alcohol and Coronavirus – Dr Judy

May 23, 2020

Tribe Sober – Your guide to alcohol-free living!

After running Tribe Sober for 5 years and helping hundreds of people to ditch the drink and embrace alcohol-free living I’ve learned a thing or two.  My biggest insight has been that sharing our stories around alcohol is the most powerful way we can help others – that’s why the heart of this podcast is recovery stories.

In this episode I interview an important member of our Tribe Sober team – Dr Judy.  She did our Sober Spring Challenge and then came along to a workshop.  She now advises our Subscription Members on all matters relating to alcohol and health.

In this Episode

  • Judy shares her personal relationship with alcohol and explains how she would never be able to “moderate”
  • She explains how the group support of our tribe was so important to her
  • We all know that alcohol is a drug – but do you why it’s a drug?
  • I ask Dr Judy if SA has any chance of “flattening the curve” of Covid 19
  • She explains how our bodies treat alcohol as if it was an “infection” – firing up our immune system
  • If we do contract the virus then we have a better chance of survival if we are not drinking – Judy explains why
  • We explore the fascinating (if scary) phenomena of the Cytokine Storm
  • Both Judy and I have had breast cancer – as have many of our community – is that because we were heavy drinkers?
  • Early sobriety is tough and we chat about the depression that we both felt in those early months
