Recovery is no walk in the park, it’s hard work. But the thing about recovery, is that you can come back as a better version – the 2.0 you. And that’s what Tally’s done. In our conversation, we rewind five years to when we met in treatment to get clean and sober. As two very different people, we found our similarities and realised that although recovery can be lonely, it’s less so when you’ve got people to go through it with.


I loved recording this episode. Tally and I talked about going into treatment with an open mind, about the obstacles we faced, being stripped down and rebuilt, and about learning to take things day by day. In the years since we first admitted we needed help, Tally has become a qualified psychotherapist and yoga teacher, and I have of course created Gurls Talk and the most incredible community. We both want to use our experience to help others and prove that although addiction is a dark place, recovery and an all-round more positive existence is definitely possible.


Mad amounts of love to you all.
