I think for me personally and this has nothing to do with Kathy’s story, but one thing that I have learnt is that even though we are no longer being chased by wild animals, we can still put ourselves at risk in this world which has become quite safe. While I don’t think we need to be bubble wrapped, I believe there are situations we can’t always get out of and if I choose to drink, then those situations start to flood into my life.
Kathy, like me, realises that for her being sober makes her life infinitely better than if she were to drink any alcohol at all. She talks about a really interesting dream she had and became sober from that dream. Like me her life is profoundly better without alcohol and horribly bad with it.
Thank you for being on my show Kathy and I look forward to keeping up with your adventure.
So I’ve met a few people now who don’t like Dr Jordan Peterson for a few different reasons.
This of course is totally fine, everyone is entitled to their opinions.
Personally I’m really confused as to why this is, because to me everything he says makes pretty good sense.
In this podcast I try to lay out some arguments I’ve heard and I try to counter them.
I don’t want to sound like some little JP disciple, instead this podcast is to welcome some discussion as I think there are some important topics to discuss in an open minded way, rather than a defensive, aggressive or divisive manner.
I also think that it’s better to look at what’s being said rather than who says it. Sometimes we don’t like the person who’s saying something, but what they’re saying may actually be true.
After doing an interview with my friend, another person was interested in talking to me about alcoholism.
It’s another long conversation, and there’s a big sound jump after about 8 minutes because we had some tech problems. Sorry for the lack of professional editing.
I decided to keep the whole conversation unedited, so you can get the whole thing, rather than just snippets.
Thank you Lukas for coming onto the show, and sharing part of your life story with so much openness and humility. I really enjoyed the conversation and still am so interested in our ideas of what an alcoholic really is and whether or when it’s time to stop drinking.
