Tribe Sober – Inspiring an Alcohol-Free Life!

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.

This week I’m chatting to Michael Gallagher – an author, a speaker and a coach.

In this Episode

  • Michael talks about his hectic childhood – with a mother who was a Jehovah’s Witness and a father who was a career criminal
  • Looking back on his years as an addict, Michael realises he “mistook pleasure for happiness”
  • He built a successful career in sales but was still drinking heavily – mostly vodka
  • During his last stay in rehab he attempted suicide and cried out for help – and something shifted for him
  • We talked about the importance of living in line with your values – creativity and loyalty are important values for Michael
  • We need to know what’s driving us so that we can stop drinking and change our lives
  • We talked about how corporates promote the “work hard, play hard” culture – and that the “play hard” always involves alcohol
  • Michael is trying to change this by promoting mindfulness and meditation programs within companies
  • Michael has written a book called “Waking Up – A Guide for Transformation – available on Kindle and at Amazon
  • For more information on Michael and his work check out his website:-
