How one man went from eleven years of sobriety to becoming addicted again

On the outside looking in, Keith Meyer had everything he could have wanted in life. He was a husband to a successful wife and a father of three kids. He owned his own marketing consulting company and it had proven to be very successful. But on the inside, Keith was struggling after experiencing eleven years of sobriety.

Battles with depression and general anxiety, as well as a resurging alcohol addiction, proved too much for him to handle on his own. Keith joined the Project Recovery podcast to recall how his life spiraled out of control after drinking again. From sobriety to addict “I relapsed twice this spring,” he said. “At night, when everyone went to bed, I [was] down in the...

OMA urges Ontario government to rethink reopening of indoor bars

The provincial government should rethink its plan to reopen indoor bars, the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) warns.As part of Stage 3 of Ontario’s reopening plan, bars in a large part of the province were allowed to welcome back patrons Friday to their indoor areas, provided all drinking and eating was done sitting down.COVID-19 can spread quickly in indoor bars where alcohol consumption can lead to a lack of social distancing, the OMA says.“The evidence from other jurisdictions is that the reopening of bars carries significant risk,” OMA President Dr. Samantha Hill said in a statement Friday. “When people consume alcohol, inhibitions are lowered, making them much less likely to practise physical distancing, proper masking behaviours and good hand hygiene. Indoor locations with...

The “prank” has taken the social media platform by storm with TikTokers recording themselves pulling off the stunt and racking up millions of views.The videos star teenagers applying drawn-on wrinkles and wigs, some even lucky enough to have access to a walker or cane for a more authentic look. It’s unclear how successful the teenagers are or if a lot of them are just participating in the funny makeover part of the trend.Considering 80-year-olds are not the typical demographic for White Claw or whipped cream flavored Smirnoff vodka, it’s only about time shop c...

Business, not booze, is behind bar reopenings: Ford

The decision to allow indoor bars to reopen in Stage 3 is more about helping small business than accessing alcohol, Premier Doug Ford says.“You’re talking to a guy that doesn’t even drink,” Ford said Tuesday.“What I’m concerned about is the restaurants and the bars, keeping them alive, keeping them afloat, being socially responsible, having a strong plan when they move forward into Stage 3 this weekend.”A large part of the province will move to Stage 3 Friday which allows indoor dining and bars under certain conditions like no dancing or standing while eating or drinking.The Greater Toronto Area is included in 10 regions that will stay in Stage 2 for now, but could enter the next stage as early as next week.But other jurisdictions, especially in the United States, have moved to c...
