"If I don't put alcohol in my system, I have a much better shot at feeling better but also being of service to the people that I am of service to. Also, I'm going to show up as a better husband and just a better human. I'm not putting something in my body that's poison and that is going to have a negative effect on me".

"Ultimately, it’s those things we keep secret that I believe feed our addiction, so the more we can just voice those things that we’re thinking about that draw us towards the dark or those things that we know aren’t good for us, it actually gives an opportunity and space to shift and move".

"You can't grow it through alcohol, through numbing out. You can only grow through feeling those feelings and being willing to come up against them. Like courage is not without fear, right? It's just embracing that fear and taking action anyway. So it is growing courage. You know, it's teaching your body and your nervous system that you're gonna live".

"I gave so much love outward, but I didn't know how to give it to myself. And that's been my journey and through honouring that, and through allowing myself to be lonely and feel those feelings, is how I've been able to help so many sensitive men during this time, or any men that are like, just feel stuck and afraid and alone. Just to know that you're not alone".

"Fuck what your mates are doing. Like, what do you need? What part of you are you not honouring that is just screaming inside to be listened to? And honour that. Maybe don’t drink today and see how it goes".
