In this episode I explore the relationship between sobriety, sex, and shame.
I delve into the deep-rooted issues that arise from addiction and their impact on our sexual behaviours and self-perception.

I uncover how addiction warps our choices and behaviours, leaving us with a heavy weight of shame that colours every encounter. Furthermore, I examine the carried shame into our intimate sober experiences and the challenges it poses in establishing healthy boundaries and rebuilding trust.

The biggest thing I express is that THERE IS HOPE FOR HEALING!
I discuss strategies to address and heal sexual wounds, I breakdown the distinction between toxic shame and healthy shame, highlighting how toxic shame can destroy self-worth, relationships, and recovery.
But fear not!
I provide you with some strategies to kick toxic shame to the curb and embrace healthy shame as a catalyst for personal growth.
These strategies include cultivating self-compassion, challenging negative beliefs, seeking support, and practicing vulnerability.
You'll also hear about my experience with the real reason I held on for so long to the stories that no longer served me!

Join me as we uncover the complexities of sobriety, sex, and shame, empowering you to break free from the grip of shame, embrace your worthiness, and embark on a path of healing and authentic connection.
