In today’s episode, recovering alcoholic Teddy W—now 16 years sober—talks with The Mentors Radio host Tom Loarie about his journey from self-deception to real freedom and genuine happiness…and the transformative power of good habits. At a time of year when many of us are choosing new goals, this is a helpful, inspiring and very candid interview. Alcoholism is the elephant in the room few talk about, yet excessive drinking is the #1 leading cause of preventable deaths in the U.S. It’s shocking! From 2015 to 2019 alone, there were more than 380 alcohol-related deaths PER DAY in the United States. It affects each of us in some way, if not through our own addiction, then through family, friends and co-workers. This episode is a fabulous insider view with inspiration for everyone!
