Content warning: Eating disorders and disordered eating
Amanda joins Sober Stories host Beth Bowen to discuss how her eating disorder inadvertently led to her sobriety, the way her drinking had become like "Russian Roulette," and how her experience in the 12 Steps shapes her sobriety now. Beth and Amanda talk about her new book, "Not Drinking Tonight: A Guide to Creating A Sober Life You Love," and dig into the intricacies of how the clinical mental health field is missing the mark regarding Alcohol Use Disorder. Amanda explains a new concept, "disordered drinking," and Beth and Amanda discuss how to open more doors for folks seeking to change their relationship with alcohol. Amanda shares what her story would be called (if she didn't already have a book out!): "Finding the Gray."
