“Get ready to be moved by the story of our remarkable guest Gigi Langer, as she takes us through her raw and insightful journey to sobriety.
“Gigi’s story begins in the Midwest, where her self-worth was initially tied to academic achievements and later, relationships. She opens up about her struggles with alcohol and drugs, the series of consequent failures, how she ended up becoming a functioning alcoholic, and her life-changing decision to quit drinking on January 11th, 1986.
“Gigi didn’t just stop at overcoming her addiction, she used her experiences as fuel to help others. She chronicles her transition to becoming an author, describing the initial challenge of finding a sponsor in recovery, learning to be vulnerable and honest, and the crucial role played by her mentor Jane. As you tune in, you’ll get to hear about her remarkable recovery journey and the process that led her to pen her own book.
“However, Gigi’s story of courage doesn’t end there. She confronts the sexual abuse she endured as a child, recounting the healing process, the anger, and powerlessness she once felt, and her journey towards personal healing and empowerment. Through therapy, sponsors, and recovery meetings, Gigi was able to reclaim her power and establish healthier relationships.
She provides a beacon of hope for those struggling with similar issues, sharing insights from her two books and her own life. Get ready to be inspired by Gigi’s resilience and wisdom, as you tune into this deeply personal conversation.
