Meredith Atwood's Sobriety Story

In December of 2015, I decided that I would never drink again.

A Sobering Thought: In the Beginning
Teetotaler: One Year Sober

The story of alcohol struggles is one that is not told often, and if it is told, I am not sure it’s told very honestly (or well).

I think the shame and the barriers to discussing struggles with addiction should be destroyed, and obliterated, so that anyone (ANYONE!) who needs help will have it – and have it with LOVE and SUPPORT.

Through my work, I am seeking to break down the shame, the barriers, and the negative associations with taking a stand, grabbing our power, and deciding to be sober people.

In April 2017, I created the online support community called “Grateful Sobriety.”

Who is welcome? YOU are if you:

  • want to stop drinking;
  • think you need to stop drinking;
  • have years of sobriety under your belt and love the support;
  • are stubborn and scared about your drinking;
  • know someone who you want to support in their quitting drinking; or
  • just want to give back to your community with your gifts of counseling expertise or sobriety.

Go to www.GratefulSobriety.com to learn more.

For those of you who might be struggling, please feel free to reach out or get help, and ask for help. I’m also here if you want to chat or confess or just need someone to talk to.  And I really do mean that.

May 13, 2017
00:0000:00

Marijuana. Yes. Really.  Legal Statement: Medical marijuana is legal in the state of Nevada, where Dr. Johnson conducts his research; Adult-use marijuana legal in NV, sales begin July 1, 2017 in the state of NV. Marijuana might not be legal in audience home state. Listener discretion is advised.

Marijuana. Cannabis. Yes, that's what we're talking about. In this incredibly informative and educational episode, Meredith talks with Dr. Johnson about the new research, safety and information on the wacky weed (okay, that's Meredith's term).

Darryl Johnson, PhD is the Scientific Director at Ace Analytical Laboratory (AAL), a cannabis safety and potency testing laboratory in Las Vegas, Nevada.

AAL is at the forefront of cannabis analysis, adhering to the world’s most stringent safety testing requirements. In addition, Dr. Johnson is also a contributing writer for Vegas Cannabis Magazine, and served on the Laboratory Working Group for the Governor’s Task Force for the implementation of Question 2 (legalization of adult-use marijuana in Nevada).

Dr. Johnson received his PhD in bioanalytical chemistry from the University of Georgia in 2013. While at UGA, he worked at the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC) developing novel separation methodologies for high-throughput mass spectrometry based proteomic analysis. Following graduation, he took a Research Chemist/ORISE Fellowship position at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. During his time at the CDC, he was part of the Special Topics Team in the Chemical Terrorism Method Development Laboratory, developing bioanalytical assays to measure human exposure to organophosphorus nerve agents. Dr. Johnson has authored nearly 20 peer-reviewed scientific publications, and was part of a team of scientists awarded the CDC’s Excellence in Emergency Response International award in 2015.
