Loving Yourself Sober With Coach Courtney Andersen

Uncategorized Feb 10, 2022

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, we're talking about love today! 

So much of recovery is loving yourself. Don't get me wrong, the flowers and chocolate kind of V-Day are fantastic. But the best form of love can change your life in ways you never expected. 

When I decided to get sober, I had to push myself so far out of my comfort zone. That meant saying no to invites that I knew would cause chaos and working through challenging emotions. I didn't realize it at the time, but I was...

Okay, friends, today I’m going to help you build your dream self-care day.

Are They Just Your “Partner in Wine?”

Codependency and substance abuse are two words often used in the same conversation. When two people are participating in toxic behavior together, it’s difficult for either of them to experience successful, long-term recovery.

Women often ask me how to tell a romantic partner they want to be sober. 

My answer is usually pretty simple! If they love and support you, it shouldn’t be a problem. 

When clients tell me their spouse “disagrees” with their sobriety,...
