Title: How to Break an Addiction in 30 Days

The Lesson: Addiction can be a slippery slope down to rock bottom – but if given the right tools, anyone can pull themselves out again. Luckily, this particular podcast (as seen in the video below) doesn’t just cover the tools to breaking bad habits – it also discusses the fear, mindsets, struggles, and rewards of kicking alcoholism and addition.

Notable Excerpt: “Most of the things that we do that are addictive are to numb out our anxiety, to numb out our pain, to numb out our feelings of trauma, to numb out our discomfort about meeting people in a social situation, the fear that we won’t have fun, the fear that we won’t be interesting … and that’s the big myth: ‘I won’t have a fun life’. But what we’re finding is that people are actually having more fun because they start doing different things instead.”

The Guest: Jack Canfield, who is the author of the best-selling “Chicken Soup For The Soul” book series, recently published “The 30-Day Sobriety Solution: How to Cut Back or Quit Drinking in the Privacy of Your Own Home”. The book is a carefully-organized manual that is designed to instruct, guide, and ease the reader back into a healthy state of mind without the tethers of alcoholism or drug habits.

The Host: After spending years of his young life and athletic career struggling with his own emotional wellbeing, a crippling injury left Lewis Howes without an identity and without any work. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, however, Howes recreated himself as a multi-million dollar media producer, motivational speaker, bestselling author, and podcast host. The ex-football player now spends his days chatting with the most inspirational icons of this generation on his School of Greatness podcast.

Podcast: The School of Greatness podcast is available for download on Soundcloud and iTunes. You can also watch footage of the interviews on Howes’s YouTube channel.

Books: Howes is the author of the New York Times bestselling book “The School of Greatness”: an in-depth collection of lessons and wisdom that he has gathered from interviewing hundreds of the world’s greatest role models and thinkers. Howes’s latest book, “The Mask of Masculinity”, is based on his experience with the dangerous stereotypes and expectations that are placed on men in modern society.
