My name is Courtney Peacock. I’m in my early 30s and newly sober (for the second official time) after 15ish years of pretty steady & heavy alcohol abuse.
My middle name is Peacock, often referred to as the “eyes of the stars”, peacocks are said to represent renewal, resurrection, awakening, guidance, and protection. I believe sobriety should be about self-empowerment, awakening to a new-found present of mind, and finding one’s true purpose. I want to help people be able to let go of the shame and self-doubt that often accompanies addiction & recovery.
I’m excited to be a part of an online community that is helping to educate people to properly understand addiction and break the stigmas that are associated with it! The more I learn about addiction (especially to alcohol), the more shocked I am at how misunderstood it is (and frankly, that it is even legal!). Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that together we can shatter the shame associated with addiction and help heal each other.
Love + Light,
