Alcoholism Podcasts Worth Listening To To Stop Drinking

Are you looking for alcoholism podcasts because you want to quit drinking? I’m with you and seriously wish you luck…

However, even if you are a very disciplined person, it will be difficult and you should seek support and advice from other people whenever it’s available.

Alcohol is everywhere

Despite the negative effects of alcohol, drinking is normalized in society…

Booze seems to be everywhere and advertising positions drinking as fun and cool…

Indeed, you’ve probably been conditioned your entire life to think that alcohol is for relaxing, celebrating, having fun, associated with success, winning, and living the good life.

However, alcohol has done more damage than any good it’s ever caused…

But you might think by looking around, that if you don’t drink, you’re the weird one…!

Alcohol is the primary cause of divorce among men, and depression is often caused by alcohol abuse.

Alcoholism Podcasts Make Talking About Alcohol Easier

Talking about alcohol problems can be tough… 

If you have no one to talk to, you may wonder if they’re the only one who feels the way you do. You may ask yourself:

  • Am I the only one on the planet who feels like shit after just a few beers? 
  • Why do I feel so depressed? 
  • Where is my life going? 
  • Why can’t I get anything done?

You’re not alone…

Both my grandfathers were drunks… 

My beautiful mother died from causes related to a life of battling substance abuse. I know for a fact that she was uncomfortable talking about it because she was ashamed.

Probably everyone feels this way to varying degrees… They just don’t ever talk about it.

So if you want to quit drinking ere are several alcoholism podcasts and YouTube videos that may help you with what you’re looking for:

1) Huberman Lab Podcast: What Alcohol Does To Your Body, Brain & Health

One of the best alcoholism podcasts is Huberman Lab Podcast #86.

In this podcast, Dr. Andrew Huberman discusses the physiological effects that drinking alcohol has on the brain and body at different levels of consumption and over time.

For me, it’s truly “sobering” that after years of drinking, starting in high-school, through college, after college and as a married father, this podcast was shocking because of how bad Huberman says alcohol is for your health.

He also describes genetic differences that predispose certain individuals to alcoholism, binge and habit-drinking and explains alcohol metabolism in simple terms and how it effectively acts as a poison, leading to cellular stress and damage.

He explains how alcohol impacts neuronal function and changes our thinking and behavior – hallmarks of inebriation, and discusses how alcohol consumption of different amounts impacts inflammation, stress, neurodegeneration, and cancer risk and negatively impacts the gut microbiome, brain thickness, hormone balance, mood and feelings of motivation.

Huberman discusses the biology of hangovers and describe science-based strategies to mitigate the severity of a hangover.

Since alcohol is one of the most widely consumed recreational substances, this episode ought to be of relevance to everyone. Indeed, even low-to-moderate alcohol consumption negatively impacts the brain and body in direct ways.

The goal of this episode is to help people make informed decisions about their alcohol consumption that are in keeping with their mental and physical health goals.

2) That Sober Guy

A great, honest podcast about addiction… The host, Shane Ramer, speaks truthfully from personal experience about the problems that led him to quit drinking.

He interviews many everyday people as well as celebrities about addiction and sobriety.

Tim Ferriss Show (Interview with Richard Branson)

Tim Ferriss interviews the iconic entrepreneur and business leader, Richard Branson.

At different points, Branson brings up alcohol and drugs and his challenges with them… 

If Sir Richard Branson can admit having issues with alcohol, anyone can.

4) Jocko Podcast: Drinking In The Military

Jocko Willink is a former Navy SEAL and a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt.

He served in Iraq as the leader of his SEAL team during the battle of Ramadi. Now that he’s home he writes books and has a great podcast on discipline and war. He also runs a consulting business called Echelon Front with his colleague and fellow Navy SEAL, Leif Babbin.

Jocko doesn’t drink alcohol, but did drink while he was in the SEAL teams.

He doesn’t drink now, apparently because he basically thinks it’s pointless… It doesn’t make him better, faster, stronger, etc.

Anyone with a drinking or substance abuse problem, I believe, by definition, has a discipline problem of some sort.

5) Joe Rogan Podcast with Greg Fitzsimmons

Joe and Greg talk about addiction… And how drinking too much alcohol or eventaking the edge off can be a slippery slope. 

Greg talks about Al-Anon

He and Joe also discuss the pressures of trying to achieve your dreams, and why being disappointed in yourself can lead to a cyclical downward spiral that feeds on itself… Causing you to waste your life.

6) Joe Rogan Podcast with Nikki Glaser

Over a decade ago, comedian Nikki Glaser decided to quit drinking. She said one book was all it took.

I read this book a few years ago when I was considering stopping drinking.

I read it and was off the sauce for 9 months…

7) Stephen King's Book: "On Writing"

While it isn’t a podcast, Stephen King’s book “On Writing” is not only an autobiography, but also a great book on quitting drinking…

If you’re an author trying to get your shit together, this book will almost certainly resonate as you struggle to write regularly, have discipline and stop drinking.

It might be helpful to know that Stephen King was a raging alcoholic and drug abuser for much of his life and had to stop to keep his marriage and life intact.

The book is excellent not only for learning to write better, but also for his open, personal story about alcoholism.
