Tricia Lewis, the host of Recovery Happy Hour, believes that recovery is impossible without support.

The Sobriety Diaries offer powerful stories of recovery from a queer perspective, that of host Nate Kelly. For Kelly, alcohol was an escape from his true self, a way to hide from his peers.

Today, on The Sobriety Diaries, Kelly hopes to help those who are still struggling because he believes that recovery is possible for everyone.
