In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, Stephan shares his journey of falling into alcoholism as a means to feel peace after being assaulted at a young age and how being admitted into rehab was one of the best things to ever redirect the dark path he was headed down. 

Some of the talking points I go over in this episode include:

  • How being a victim of a gang assault became a huge turning point that shifted Stephan’s life for the worse. 
  • The immense release that came over Stephan after admitting, out loud, that he was an alcoholic. 
  • Using the 5-minute gardener example to begin taking small steps that add up to make a big change.
  • Growing through connection with others. 

Getting sober is incredible but it is only the beginning. Sobriety opens the door for a world of opportunities at your grasp. 

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
