Admitting you’re wrong is never easy but this is exactly what Dan does in this special bonus edition of the Menace to Sobriety Podcast. Listen in as Dan bares all in this raw, honest and sometimes triggering episode all about his journey to accepting himself; including when he has been wrong, his sobriety, coping mechanisms and his trauma. Dan also talks about the downsides of cancel culture, what he has learnt in his 167 days of being sober and reveals his upcoming tour for 2024! 2024 Tour KEY TAKEAWAYS  This will be Dan’s first tour that he will have written, created and performed sober.  The themes of his 2024 tour will be around sobriety, mental health as well as going from ‘lad to dad’! Our emotions are deep within us, our bodies hold on to trauma and if the right buttons are pressed we become triggered. There have been a lot of emotions coming up to the surface for Dan with this upcoming tour, some of which have been triggered by the press and reminding him of the period of his cancellation and the death of his Dad. Sobriety means clarity and that includes looking at your trauma directly and seeing it clearly. Cancel culture is toxic, it doesn’t allow for forgiveness or growth. Previously Dan didn’t want to take responsibility, he was more focused on being edgy and controversial. He had no reason to listen to what other people were telling him. But he now sees he was wrong. Dan accepts that he had an inflated ego, through drinking and drugs and that he did do and say things that were wrong in the past. He didn’t listen enough or take responsibility. Being sober has given Dan freedom; to accept he is wrong, apologise sincerely and achieve his potential. BEST MOMENTS  “This is the first time in my life I have written comedy sober” “Our bodies really hold onto trauma” “When we use drink or drugs we are chasing dopamine hits of happiness to hide the pain” “I thought I should have been forgiven sooner” “I was on such a mission to prove I was successful” “Ultimately, sobriety is a beautiful thing” VALUABLE RESOURCES 2024 Tour CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter ABOUT THE HOST Daniel O’Reilly Daniel O’Reilly is one of the UK’s Largest Influencers, a comedian, actor, musician, viral video star and social influencer.

Coach, public speaker and fellow podcaster (One for the Road) David Wilson joins Dan on this episode of the podcast to talk all things sobriety and how after transforming his own life after four decades of drinking, he now uses his experiences and knowledge to help others do the same. Dan becomes quite emotional in this episode that touches parts of both his addiction and sobriety journey, showing that recovery and growth aren’t linear. KEY TAKEAWAYS  David transformed his life in 2019 after 4 decades of drinking, which almost killed him. Feeling rejected at home, David sought belonging in a gang of boys and this is when his drinking started, at just the age 14. People pleasing has followed David throughout his life, when he was the person people wanted to see in him, he felt accepted, he felt loved. At the time, David didn’t see anything problematic with his drinking but now looking back he feels the same as Dan, embarrassed and --- about how he spent so many days, weeks and years of his life. Don’t use the weekends to escape your life through alcohol and drugs, use them to build the life you want. David’s drinking developed over time from social drinking to spending entire weekends in solitude drinking as much as possible. He hated whom he had become and after a health scare and his mother’s death he knew he needed to change. As a functioning alcoholic, your life feels normal. You often forget what it’s like to feel sober and lead a normal life and it impacts every decision you make. There are stages to becoming sober, it generally starts with the physical side. You then have to tackle the emotions attached to your addiction. David compares becoming sober to being released from prison. He felt institutionalised from drinking for 30+ years. Your addicted self is still you and has been part of your life. To recover and grow you have to accept the positives and negatives of the past phases of your life.   BEST MOMENTS  “If you have those abandonment issues as a young lad and you found solace in drink and drugs, that becomes your soothing” “Booze turned you into the person you wanted to be” “I was massively people pleasing to be accepted” “Everything was about drink” “Although my drinking was different, my sobriety is the same” “It’s about embracing the old you as part of your life” "Sometimes you'll pick the destruction over the fu*king hard work" VALUABLE RESOURCES David's Podcast: One for the Road CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter   ABOUT THE GUEST David Wilson https://www.instagram.com/soberdave/ https://amzn.to/3BpvUPD https://davidwilsoncoaching.com/ https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/one-for-the-road/id1565341712   Transforming his life in January 2019 after 4 decades of drinking which nearly ended up killing him in April 2018, David Wilson, Accredited Grey Area Drinking Coach and Public Speaker, is dedicated to motivating others to transform their lives, overcome personal challenges and embrace life with a renewed mindset. Using his unique delivery and no-nonsense approach, Dave is both personable and relatable.  Connecting with a diverse audience, Dave (NACOA trained) has spoken at schools and colleges raising awareness of the impact and harm of the excessive use of alcohol for both individuals and family members.  A Training Associate and Ambassador for Alcohol Change UK, a leading UK alcohol charity, Dave is able to deliver his learned experience and knowledge to the workplace.

This episode we welcome back Elliott Wald, the Hypnosis Expert, to celebrate Daniel O’Reilly’s 100 DAYS SOBER! They will be discussing the all or nothing mentality, the last hurrah, recovery and much more… Elliott has over 26 years of experience in psychology and linguistics, this teamed with his own personal experiences gives him a unique opportunity to educate and help individuals and families suffering the consequences of addiction. Most recently, Elliott has found success in creating content for TikTok and other social media platforms around addiction and sobriety which is helping many more people, on top of his existing clients, combat their addictions and inner demons. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Presence is the number one thing Dan feels like he has gained by going sober. He is enjoying the here and now, every day. Daniel never felt normal when he was using. He was either high, drunk, hungover or full of anxiety. Elliott attributes his popularity on TikTok and other social media to being relatable and sincere about his experiences. People can see themselves and their own experiences in his content. Those who aren’t ready to admit they have a problem can be very negative about you choosing to go sober but don’t allow them to bring you down, you will lose people on your journey to recovery and sobriety. You have to be completely mentally ready to go sober or there will always be reasons to put it off or talk yourself out of it. We all mess up sometimes, Elliott doesn’t believe in ‘relapsing’ in your sobriety journey. We instead have to admit that we have made a mistake and accept it so we can then refocus and realign ourselves. When becoming sober it’s important to prepare yourself for all situations where you may be tempted to use. This is a process Elliott calls ‘immunisation’. Adjust your mindset. Don’t allow yourself to see going sober as giving up anything or your brain will see it as deprivation. It’s not deprivation, it’s making a better life choice for yourself. Our unconscious is partly formed by our proven and personal beliefs. Elliott takes his client’s personal and limiting beliefs and experiences to help them overcome their addictions.   BEST MOMENTS  “Now that I’m here, I feel 100 times better than I thought I’d feel on day 1” “I was either drunk or hungover” “This is your new power, this is your new habit” “You haven't relapsed, you’ve f*cked up” “You have to immunise yourself against every possibility, both mentally and physically” “You’re making a new lifestyle for yourself” “Your belief today is based on that past experience, you aren’t making that decision based on today” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.cocaineanonymous.org.uk CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter   ABOUT THE GUEST Elliott Wald is a Master Trainer in many therapies and over the last 27 years has become recognised as a leading expert in the field of Hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP and Modern Psychology.

  In this episode of Menace to Sobriety, Daniel O'Reilly (aka Dapper Laughs) interviews a former drinking buddy, Callum Baxter. The two discuss their experiences with addiction, how their lives have changed since getting sober, and how they never would’ve thought Callum could have achieved sobriety. Throughout the conversation, Callum shares his story of recovery and encourages others to reach out for help if they’re struggling with addiction. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Callum talks about his experiences with counselling and how he had to support himself in order to get out of a vicious cycle of hatred, anxiety and self destructive behaviour. Dan and Callum talk about how they had to distance themselves from each other in order to get better. Callum went through a phase of believing that everyone was against him, his friends, family, his therapist. This was the height of his addiction and the turning point to recovery. Dan and Callum recall some of their wildest times together on their journey through addiction and recovery. Family and friends are the most important asset in recovery. You should really value those around you, especially the ones that stick by your side through thick and thin. BEST MOMENTS  “I really thought that everyone hated me, I was paranoid” “I was kicking off at the smallest of things” “I started going to this therapy session where you had to feel your soul through your feet and ask yourself deep questions, I really embraced.” “I almost lost my daughter in hospital, I thought if she dies, ive got nothing to hold on to”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.cocaineanonymous.org.uk CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter   ABOUT THE HOST Daniel O’Reilly Daniel O’Reilly is one of the UK’s Largest Influencers, a comedian, actor, musician, viral video star and social influencer.

In this episode, Dan is talking to Brandon Block. Brandon is an internationally renowned DJ who strives to help people struggling with alcohol and drug addiction after going through rehab many years ago. Dan and Brandon talk about the extent of his addiction, sharing crazy stories and tips on how to stay on the path to recovery. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Brandon talks about his book “The Life and Lines of Brandon Block” where he discusses his history with drug use and his dramatic recovery. There is an innate human urge to help and give back. Everyone is connected and we all work best when supporting each other. Brandon once got so high on Cocaine that he jumped off a Ferry into dirty, radiated water in Hong Kong, which resulting in him having part of his lung removed. He also tells the story of how he stormed on stage at the Brit awards and got in trouble! We live in a world that promotes anxiety and keeps us on edge. This is why it is really important to stay in the present. Practice meditation to release anxiety and get clarity! Burnout occurs when you are overstimulated and you become braindead. Brandon talks about his experience with Burnout and how he overcame it. The media sometimes forced Brandon into taking Cocaine for the cameras, it became necessary for him to be able to “perform”. BEST MOMENTS  “All music was about love, we championed club music from all around the world” “The crazy days were CRAZY, nothing could happen apart from partying” “I was existing on Cocaine, that was my life” “Anxiety is our inbuilt fight or flight reaction”   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.cocaineanonymous.org.uk   ABOUT THE GUEST Brandon's incredible career started in 1985 at his local boozer in Harrow, before the emergence of Acid House in the late 80s brought numerous gigs at super clubs including Ministry of Sound, Turnmills and Miss Moneypenny’s and several appearances on BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix. Brandon cemented his superstar DJ status alongside Alex P on the legendary terrace at Space, Ibiza in the 90s.

In this episode, the tables are turned as Kirk Norcross takes over the podcast to instead interview Dan! No topic or question is off limits as Kirk delves deep into Dan’s own journey with addiction, mental health and his own personal struggles in life; from childhood trauma, to thoughts of suicide and dealing with the death of a parent. They also discuss relationships, the creation of Daniel’s alter ego Dapper laughs, the challenges that come along with being famous and living with ADHD. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Daniel didn’t have a stereotypical mum, but she was always very supportive, even when Daniel was in trouble or having difficulties. A lot of Daniel’s difficulties in life, particularly around being self-destructive, were down to childhood trauma. You have an unhealthy relationship with drinks and drugs if you struggle to stop and it’s creating issues in your relationships and life. Daniel is so thankful for his wife and that she stuck by him through his addiction and awful behaviour. He feels most ashamed of his behaviour because of how it impacted her and his children. The death of Daniel’s father hit him incredibly hard. He helped Kirk through difficult times, he was always looking at the positives in a situation and his death couldn’t have come at a worse time. When Daniel’s Dad died, his drug addiction spiralled, and he began to use them to cope with life. He contemplated suicide but thankfully sought help from the Samaritans. Daniel no longer restricts himself to one type of content, this way his content can evolve as he does, and he can always be himself. In the past, Daniel has been accused of being sexist. He realises now that although he wasn’t sexist himself his content often was and he was potentially fostering and influencing the wrong kind of behaviour. The press and cancel culture was very tough on Daniel. He feels like they decided he was a target and they were relentless in their abuse. This podcast has been accused of glorifying drugs but that is exactly it. Drugs feel glorious that’s why so many people have a problem with them and why they ruin lives. BEST MOMENTS  “He could really understand me, my father” “I don’t want to die, I want to find a way out of it” “My content is a reflection of my life” “The press will run with and hump on and virtue signal, once they decide they do not want you around that’s it” “People will be wondering if they have a problem with drinks or alcohol and their trigger will simply be finishing work at the end of the week” “Drugs are fucking glorious and that’s the problem” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.cocaineanonymous.org.uk CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter   ABOUT THE GUEST HOST Kirk Norcross   Instagram   “My name is Kirk Norcross, I’m 34 years old, I had a pretty good run, a TV career which I can’t even remember hardly any of that, drugs consumed my life I always used drugs like an addict but I didn’t use them all the time until my fiancé split up with me for no reason and never gave me a reason and I was so upset, hurt and confused. I started using drugs to self-medicate to shut my brain down to stop thinking and then spiral turned and turned and turned until I was like a wrecking ball everywhere I went every penny I had went on drugs, my whole life revolved around drugs I tried recovery a couple of times and kept relapsing then I lost my due to suicide, and it was like something clicked in my head that I need to step up to the plate and be the man that my father wanted me to be, and from then on, I’ve been so as of today’s date I am 583 days sober haven’t touched any drugs or alcohol or any other mind-influencing substance since then.” ABOUT THE HOST Daniel O’Reilly Daniel O’Reilly is one of the UK’s Largest Influencers, a comedian, actor, musician, viral video star and social influencer.

Matt Pink, better known as the Better Life Guy on Instagram is an author, coach and on a mission to help as many people as he can, take a break from alcohol. He joins Daniel to talk about writing his bestselling book ‘Better Me, Better You’ opening up about his own story, including how he helps coach others to be a better version of themselves and why he is so passionate about sobriety. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Relapsing is extremely common in most people’s sobriety journeys. It’s very normal to feel like you are missing out when you give up alcohol or drugs and it can take many attempts to successfully give them up. Matt wanted to help people on a bigger scale, this was the driving force to create his app Dryy which to date has 7.5k users and is the fastest growing alcohol-free app in the world. Matt is trying to create a space and community for like-minded people who want to stop drinking. After the death of his son, Matt’s relationship with alcohol changed, he suddenly needed it. He ended up losing everything. A spiritual experience allowed Matt to see that the way he was living was wrong. He was able to see that he had a bright future, and this is when his journey to sobriety started. Matt believes 1 sober year is equal to 10 years on booze, you get so much more from life and can give so much more too.   BEST MOMENTS  “I am the king cheerleader of the sobriety world” “I’m not missing out, I’m free of it, when my mindset changed I could do it” “I’ve managed to channel that trauma into something positive” “Once you start giving back, helping people, the world starts helping you” VALUABLE RESOURCES Matt’s new Free app Dryy CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter ABOUT THE GUEST Matt Pink Matt Pink, better known as the Better Life Guy on Instagram has taken the alcohol-free world by storm since he started to document his sober journey on Instagram.  Matt released his first book, titled “Better me, Better you” in November of 2021 which went to number 1 in the amazon best seller chart.  More recently Matt has co-founded the Dryy app which is the fastest growing alcohol-free app in the world.

Taner is a counsellor, therapist, and addiction specialist. Taner has worked in mental health for over 15 years and holds a senior position in mental health for the NHS. He talks to Daniel about his own experiences with drugs and mental health as well as what he offers to help others including the merits and effectiveness of unconscious mind therapy, counselling and mindset. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Taner went sober at just 25 years old, triggered by a drug-induced psychosis. Taner’s own experiences drove him to start working in mental health and he has been gaining experience and knowledge continuously ever since. Both Dan and Taner are under no illusion, they both enjoyed drugs and the escapism they offered. But, in the end, the drug experience wasn’t worth the fallout for the rest of their lives. Having a problem with drugs or alcohol doesn’t mean you have to be dependent on them. A problem is just as soon as drugs or alcohol begins to impact your life negatively. It doesn’t matter what your addiction is, it’s about your relationship with the substance or behaviour that matters. Unless you are at peace with yourself and who you are, you can’t begin to do the proper work on yourself to have a successful and fulfilling life. You have to work and build on your happiness, it doesn’t just magically happen. Daniel lost years to his addiction and it can be hard to not think about the time he has wasted, yet he recognises that everything that happened brought him to where he is and who he is today. An individual's mindset is one of the most powerful tools they own. Often the difference between those failing and those succeeding in life is choosing to do something about their situation.   BEST MOMENTS  “I thought, I’m losing sight of actual reality now” “I can’t say I didn’t love drugs, I loved them” “What is addiction? The overriding thought or obsessions to change how you feel” “We both need feminine and masculine traits to succeed in life” “Mindset is so powerful” VALUABLE RESOURCES CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter   ABOUT THE GUEST Taner Hassan MBACP Counsellor & Psychotherapist, Addiction Specialist, Unconscious Mind Therapist, Sex & Porn Addiction Therapist.  Worked within Mental Health & Addiction for  15 years, Senior Management for the NHS for Mental Health & now Operations Director for a Private Treatment Centre.  I’m 16 years Clean, found having ADHD a challenge until now, had drug-induced psychosis, 8 stone, in debt, didn’t wash, holes in my shoes, and suicidal thoughts which was the turning point in my life.

Addiction and alcoholism can take many shapes and forms, yet addicts' experiences can be strikingly similar and, in this episode, Daniel is joined by Clare Pooley, an ex-secret drinker to open up about her experience of alcoholism and sobriety. Clare talks about her viral blog “Mummy was a Secret Drinker”, her background in advertising and how that world fed her addiction, as well as how she has remained sober for over 7 years. Clare also talks about her memoir “The Sober Diaries” and her recent New York Times Bestseller book “The Authenticity Project”. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Clare’s blog was a ‘black comedy’ about her secret drinking, she didn’t expect it to go anywhere but within 2 years she had over 3 million hits. With addiction, it takes more and more over time to get the desired effect. This is why the amount of a substance used can creep up so easily on people. No one told Claire she had a problem with alcohol, she managed to keep her addiction hidden easily. The advertising scene in the 00s was very centred around drinking, it was just how things were done. This certainly impacted Clare’s attitudes around alcohol and was habit forming too. There are a lot of little signs that can signal a problem with alcohol, including drinking along frequently, googling about your consumption and any form of self-medicating. Asking yourself if you are an alcoholic or even an addict isn’t the right question. What you need to ask yourself is if the alcohol or addiction is impacting your life negatively. Being sober allows you to present in every day, effectively adding years to your life.   BEST MOMENTS  “The thing about addiction is everyone's experience of addiction is similar” “I didn’t want to quit drinking, I thought my life would be over” “What you should be asking, is if alcohol messing with my life?”   VALUABLE RESOURCES The Authenticity Project The Sober Diaries CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter   ABOUT THE GUEST Clare Pooley Clare Pooley spent nearly 20 years in the heady world of advertising, working hard, playing hard and drinking harder. In 2015 she realised that her alcohol consumption was out of control and quit drinking. She started writing a blog called Mummy was a Secret Drinker by way of therapy. That blog went viral and became a memoir - The Sober Diaries. Clare then turned to fiction. Her debut novel - The Authenticity Project - was a New York Times bestseller, a Radio 2 Book Club pick, was translated into 30 languages and won the RNA debut novel award. The People on Platform 5 is Clare’s second novel. Insta: @clare_pooleyTwitter: @cpooleywriter Clare’s TEDx talk Clare’s Memoir   ABOUT THE HOST Daniel O’Reilly Daniel O’Reilly is one of the UK’s Largest Influencers, a comedian, actor, musician, viral video star and social influencer.

Ross Mac is a DJ, event promotor and had a very late diagnosis of ADHD this year. As an ex-alcoholic and addict, Ross marks 8 years sober this year. He joins Daniel to talk about his demons with addiction, how he got sober and how he helps others do the same. Daniel and Ross also talk about mindset, the importance of surrounding yourself with the right people and the common alter-egos and self-destructive nature of addiction. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Ross began DJing at 14, doing big clubs at just the age of 16. It wasn’t until he was 34 that he then became sober. ADHD means that Ross easily obsesses over things, this is one of the things he attributes to becoming an addict. What he does now focuses his obsessions on the ‘right’ things like helping others, his recovery and his health. Becoming sober can often give an individual a huge amount of clarity, meaning they can make more conscious decisions but with it also comes regrets and remorse which can be hard to deal with. When you are an addict, it isn’t just about life when you are ‘on’ the drugs of alcohol. It’s the rest of your life when you aren’t too, it impacts every area of your life and how you think and treat people. You have to accept the consequences and results of when you were using, all you can do now is focus on staying clean and sober to try and make amends for your friends, family and yourself. Drink and drug use are so powerful that they can be causing everything to go wrong in your life and you still won’t want to give them up. Many ex-addicts talk about the role of self-destruction in aiding their addiction, feeling like they have an alter-ego that feeds their need for drugs and alcohol.   BEST MOMENTS  “I obsess about everything” “It’s not about you’re drinking it’s about your thinking” “Being sober is a superpower” “Now you know it’s a problem, you can let go of it” “Sober people are weird because they are nice” VALUABLE RESOURCES CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter   ABOUT THE GUEST Ross Mac Ross has suffered from poor mental health for as long as he can remember and was expelled from infant school at the age of 5. Everyone told him he was a naughty kid but in his 30s he learnt he was an addict, with ADHD - this realisation and discovery was a blessing.  Working and running events in nightclubs at the age of 13, Ross quickly turned to drinking and drugs as a solution to his problems. Despite his addictions, he managed to DJ and run events all over the world, but there was always a dark cloud that followed him -  that dark cloud was his mind.  He always knew what he was doing was wrong, he always knew he had developed an addiction, but he couldn’t stop. Drink, drugs, and women were their favourite pastimes, and he would (unfortunately) step over anyone to get what he wanted. His mind was scrambled 24/7 and he couldn’t work out the truth from the false.  On the outside, his life looked amazing but inside his use got worse, his mind got darker, and he found himself in a place where he thought he was going to die! He had been going to 12-step recovery meetings on and off for over four years, but one day he hit rock bottom and has never looked back. He’s been clean ever since, God willing, one day at a time. A decision that has changed his life. Ross got clean on 22nd September 2014 and discovering he is an addict has been the best thing that has ever happened to him. He’s been given a second chance in life and wants to share that with as many people as possible, that want a new out. He believes we have been put on this earth to help each other and that philosophy is his mission - to speak and help people every single day of his life, no matter where he is in the world. Since he became clean, his life has gone one way, and that’s up! The fog cleared, and his world opened up. Ross knows he’ll be an addict until the day he dies, but he’s grateful to understand his ADHD brain and that he had been self-medicating with drugs and alcohol for years.   Ross knows his journey is just the beginning but realises there’s so much more we could be doing to help others. In 2022 he launched RM Wellness Solutions, believing he can make a difference if people want change and are willing to work for a better, happier life. He wants anyone struggling to know that help and answers are available but first, you must want to change and be prepared to go outside your comfort zone.  The first step is to decide to change and seek out the help you need. It is never too late.  Ross says “ultimately, we have to be the change we want to see in ourselves and the world”. Instagram: Djrossmac    ABOUT THE HOST Daniel O’Reilly Daniel O’Reilly is one of the UK’s Largest Influencers, a comedian, actor, musician, viral video star and social influencer.

Join Daniel and Robert Hisee, a Podcaster and the UK's no1 unconscious mind therapist, as they discuss alcohol addiction, mental health and the role of ADHD in addiction on this Menace to Sobriety Podcast episode. Robert and Daniel also talk about how to transform your mindset and ways of thinking and their personal experience of addiction and ADHD. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Mind modelling is when therapists look at the process of a behaviour occurring in the mind to transform the behaviour rather than the content. Emotions are the biggest thing at play in people’s behaviour, regardless of the therapy you use. You have to train your emotions in your unconscious mind to alter your mindset and behaviour. Everything that happens in the world started with a thought, with an idea. After struggling with his relationship with alcohol for most of his life, Robert had a moment of clarity where he decided to stop. He hasn’t struggled with this decision at all and has had zero cravings. He attributes this to There has been found to be a strong link between ADHD and addiction, Robert believes this is due to the hyper fixation part of an ADHD diagnosis. Those with ADHD can often be misdiagnosed with a variety of different mental health disorders, many don’t get diagnosed until later in life and quite often, not at all. Our behaviour is programmed into us from a variety of sources, including our childhood and those we surround ourselves with. To change behaviour or combat something like addiction, Robert believes we need to reprogramme our unconscious brain’s behaviours. Anxiety is one of the biggest reasons people seek treatment from Robert, alongside addictions, including ketamine and alcohol. Micro-dosing halogenic is a new area of therapy for both depression and anxiety. Early studies are very positive using drugs like LSD and even Magic Mushrooms. BEST MOMENTS  “The human mind can only think how you feel” “When your thoughts go from the here and now to the future, that’s where magic happens, that’s manifesting, that’s your dreams” “I have more fun not drinking” “What you focus on, you become” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.manifestationjournal.co.uk/about CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter   ABOUT THE GUEST Robert Hisee “I’m Robert Hisee, the UK’s number 1 unconscious mind therapist. I’ve only been sober 61 days on the day of the podcast, not like everyone else, I’ve not stopped because I wanted to stop, I just woke up hungover one morning and I said that’s it, I’m clean and I haven’t even had any cravings. Mine’s not the same as everyone else’s, I’m not fighting it, struggling or trying, I just woke up and stopped. I’m not sure how I’ve done it as I’ve been drinking since I was 15 years old. There is a reason behind it which I’ll go into during this podcast, about the reticular activating system and what I’ve been re-programming my mind with, and I think that just took over and did it for me.”   ABOUT THE HOST Daniel O’Reilly Daniel O’Reilly is one of the UK’s Largest Influencers, a comedian, actor, musician, viral video star and social influencer.

Join Daniel, Aka Dapper Laughs, in this new Podcast, Menace II Sobriety, where he raises awareness around addiction and sobriety and talks about the links between drugs, alcohol, mental health and well-being whilst interviewing incredible guests. In this episode, Daniel is joined by celebrity hypnotherapist, author and ex-addict Elliott Wald. Elliot has over 26 years of experience in psychology and linguistics, this teamed with his own experience of addiction, gives him a unique opportunity to educate and help individuals and families suffering the consequences of addiction. He talks to Daniel about his own journey to sobriety, his knowledge of cocaine and addiction as well as how he has helped hundreds of people get sober. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Elliott focuses on cocaine addiction in a lot of his hypnotherapy. Recently he has found popularity in creating TikTok videos and this is where Daniel first heard of him. There are a set of characteristics specific to cocaine use, Elliott sets out to educate people to recognise these as early as possible, to help someone who may or already is suffering from addiction. If you recognise you have a problem with addiction, this may not be welcomed by those around you. Daniel likens it to holding a mirror up to those surrounding you and they don’t want to see it or admit they may have a problem too. As an addict, it isn’t possible to have just a small amount of the substance you have a problem with, no matter how much other people might try and convince you. People who offer drink or drugs to you when they know you have a problem aren’t giving you the support you need to combat your addiction. It’s absolutely possible to channel an addictive personality into positive pursuits, such as fitness. Secondary addiction is common, particularly around sex. In most things in life, there is a certain amount of pain to endure before pleasure. With cocaine, this is switched around which is one of the reasons it’s so hard to break the habit. Elliott believes there are four steps to the addiction to cocaine: 1. The anticipation of taking cocaine 2. The using of cocaine 3. Believing it will be different next time 4. The stress, anxiety and regret of using Lies are a big part of any addiction. You lie to the people around you, to yourself, about your addiction, how much you use, how often, the list is endless. Different people can have different substance addictions. You may have issues with cocaine but not alcohol, however, some people can become addicted to almost anything. To help someone, Elliott first has to understand them completely, he can then help them rewire their brain to go sober.   BEST MOMENTS  “I was a genuine lads lad sesh-head back in the day” “It goes from the most social drug to the most unsociable drug” “Sometimes when you recognise you have a problem or an issue it’s like holding a mirror up to the people around you” “I’m an all or nothing mentality” “What things have you done that you would never ever do if you weren’t on the packet?" “When you use, you lie” “I don’t judge people, I’m not there to judge you, I’m there to help you” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.cocaineanonymous.org.uk CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter   ABOUT THE GUEST Elliott Wald Elliott Wald is a Master Trainer in many therapies and over the last 27 years has become recognised as a leading expert in the field of Hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP and Modern Psychology. Elliott is a truly exceptional and effective Hypnotherapist, with an impressive track record of clients who have found his unique abilities ‘life changing’, including celebrities from the movies, television, sporting and media industries, as well as thousands of members of the general public who have experienced his extraordinary results, through his 1-1 work or at his seminars delivered around the world. Elliott is a regular face on our TV screens, having numerous appearances as the Hypnosis Expert of ITV’s This Morning Show and ‘Lorraine Kelly's Next Big Fat Challenge’ demonstrating his outstanding Hypnosis skills. His success continues to be featured on Television, in Newspapers, Magazines and Radio.

Join Daniel, Aka Dapper Laughs, in the first episode of his brand-new Podcast Menace II Sobriety where he cracks wide open the world of addiction and sobriety with an incredible line-up of guests to talk openly and candidly about their own experiences. In this episode, two ‘geezers’ talk all about their struggles with addiction and men's mental health as ex-Towie star Kirk Norcross joins Daniel to talk honestly, and sometimes brutally, about his own journey to sobriety. Kirk begins by talking about the beginnings of his TV career, including the real reasons why he quit as well as the truth about his dad’s suicide and how this led to a crippling drug addiction ending in psychosis. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Both Daniel and Kirk had to give up drink and drugs because they could never take them lightly, it was always an all-or-nothing mentality, leading to problems in their relationships and work life. Kirk believes that most addicts are born that way. Everything he does, he does so ‘like an addict’ from biscuits to cocaine. ADHD is something that both Kirk and Daniel have been diagnosed with as adults. It’s common for those with ADHD to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol. It’s hard for addicts to talk about their times of addiction, not just from the shame of things they may have done, but also because of the concept of wasted time and opportunities too. You have to admit to yourself the damage drugs are doing to your life before you can begin to get sober and create a better life for yourself. Looking back, Kirk believes that part of his reason for quitting his TV career was so he could use more. TV and acting got in the way of the drug use he wanted to participate in. After the death of his Dad, Kirk sunk deeper into his addiction and was at the point he would take any drugs to just feel something different. This was when he started to suffer from psychosis. Kirk got to the point when he felt like he was going to die, he even tidied his house in preparation for being found dead. This was the wake-up call he needed to seek help. After starting Cocaine Anonymous, Kirk has been able to stay sober for 500 days. If you’re thinking about going sober, don’t worry about not enjoying your life anymore, you are finding freedom, from addiction and everything that comes along with it. Kirk’s Dad’s suicide is what helped him become a man, but he is still devastated that his Dad doesn’t get to see who he has become.   BEST MOMENTS  “So many people talk about mental health, addictions, for the wrong reasons” “It ain’t the people around us, it’s us. The problem is deep in us” “I used to use drugs to pass the time, I hated my life” “With the cocaine comes porn, it’s another addiction” “If you want what they’ve got, do what they’ve done” “Everything is about mindset, I’m not missing out, I’m free” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.cocaineanonymous.org.uk CONTACT METHOD Instagram Facebook Twitter ABOUT THE GUEST Kirk Norcross Instagram “My name is Kirk Norcross, I’m 34 years old, I had a pretty good run, a TV career which I can’t even remember hardly any of that, drugs consumed my life I always used drugs like an addict but I didn’t use them all the time until my fiancé split up with me for no reason and never gave me a reason and I was so upset, hurt and confused. I started using drugs to self-medicate to shut my brain down to stop thinking and then spiral turned and turned and turned until I was like a wrecking ball everywhere I went every penny I had went on drugs, my whole life revolved around drugs I tried recovery a couple of times and kept relapsing then I lost my due to suicide, and it was like something clicked in my head that I need to step up to the plate and be the man that my father wanted me to be, and from then on, I’ve been so as of today’s date I am 583 days sober haven’t touched any drugs or alcohol or any other mind-influencing substance since then.” ABOUT THE HOST Daniel O’Reilly Daniel O’Reilly is one of the UK’s Largest Influencers, a comedian, actor, musician, viral video star and social influencer. With a portfolio of businesses, Daniel enjoys a busy lifestyle mixed with business and pleasure. Daniel is a father to two beautiful girls and enjoys spending quality time with them and his wife Shelley. With 2022 being a busy year, Daniel sold out his O2 stand-up show, released his British movie 'The Last Heist'  and is currently preparing for the upcoming release of his other film 'Miss The Kiss'. Daniel is a creative through and through, with a passion to strive in everything he does. Daniel is looking forward to the release of his podcast 'Menace 2 Sobriety' in 2023, his long-term position on GB News, Headliners, and the growing slate of films in the works with his production company, HYPRR.    PODCAST DESCRIPTION Daniel O'Reilly's newest venture sees the creation of his Menace 2 Sobriety podcast, a series of relaxed and open conversations with different guests and varied experiences.  After recently being diagnosed with severe ADHD and beginning his sobriety again, Daniel also set up a page on Facebook and Instagram called 'Men And Their Emotions' (M.A.T.E) an accessible, open and supportive group for MEN to post their feelings, thoughts and current life issues. Upon seeing the responses from men around the world to some of the posts on the group he was blown away and continues to be touched by the kindness and support offered by strangers. This all led to Daniel wanting to start up his own podcast and invite guests to join him in opening up about past experiences and talk about all things mental health, family & sobriety.  The podcast will see Daniel and his interesting guests' sharing their personal stories and learning experiences that they hope will help other people; whether it encourages one person to ask for help, talk to family about their struggles with getting sober/clean, or realise that they aren't alone. The Menace 2 Sobriety podcast has been created by Daniel to help people fight their own gremlins.Sobriety Podcast #wedorecover # recoveroutloud #addicitonrecovery #addiction #recoverytok #sobriety #sober #sobertiktok #sobertok #soberlife #sobercurious #soberliving: https://www.instagram.com/dappersinstagram/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The Large Hadron Collider is this massive ring (alright, calm down). Nerds use it to wind up particles, smash them together and see what happens. There are loads of conspiracy theories about this thing, saying it's an asteroid magnet or even a portal to hell. The mental part of it is, some of the best chat is actually rooted in proper science. Alternate dimensions, different timelines, that sorta stuff. Some people believe it created the Mandela effect, and I'm not talking the dodgy stomach you get the morning after a few too many beers.

As you may know, I consider myself something of an expert in moisture, but the conspiracy theory we’re bantering about this week is next level. Some people believe a mudflood swallowed up a whole civilization a few hundred years ago, and we’ve just moved into their gaffs. Apparently they had free leccy like that Elon Musk geezer or whatever, and the evidence is all around us. Jamie’s lost it. I’m calling boll*cks on this one, straight up. Hosted on Acast.

Browsing Wayfair is worse than getting dragged around IKEA by the missus when you’re battling a brutal hangover. I ain’t looking through 4,642 bedside lamps, and why you charging ten grand for a flatpack wardrobe that’ll probably turn out wonkier than me after an all-dayer? Conspiracy theorists have been coming across some dodgy, overpriced listings on there and arriving at the only logical conclusion: Wayfair is a front for child trafficking. Apparently it goes all the way to the top... if the top is Tom Hanks, anyway. Hosted on Acast.
