This week on Dopey! We are joined by Real Housewives of New York former star Lizzy Savetsky and diabolical addiction recovery Instagram meme maker - Loz from the brilliant Brutal Recovery!
Lizzy delivered a true alcoholic tale of growing up Jewish in Texas - and making the great pilgrimage to New York City where both her Judaism and her alcoholism exploded. Lizzy told her story with brutal honesty and courage - really capturing the shame that many alcoholics and addicts experience.
Loz shared her own experiences around shame in recovery - telling stories of being a sexual predator and singing like an angel! PLUS crazy KRATOM voicemail, emails, and the triumphant return of my dad - in an extra long episode of that good old Dopey show!
More on Dopey:
Dopey Podcast is the world’s greatest podcast on drugs, addiction and dumb shit. Chris and I were two IV heroin addicts who loved to talk about all the coke we smoked, snorted and shot, all the pills we ate, smoked, all the weed we smoked and ate, all the booze we consumed and all the consequences we suffered. After making the show for 2 and a half years, Chris tragically relapsed and died from a fentanyl overdose. Dopey continued on, at first to mourn the horrible loss of Chris, but then to continue our mission - which was at its core, to keep addicts and alcoholics company. Whether to laugh at our time in rehab, or cry at the worst missteps we made, Dopey tells the truth about drugs, addiction and recovery. We continually mine the universe for stories rife with debauchery and highlight serious drug taking and alcoholism. We also examine different paths toward addiction recovery. We shine a light on harm reduction and medication assisted treatment. We talk with celebrities and nobodies and stockpile stories to be the greatest one stop shop podcast on all things drugs, addiction, recovery and comedy!
