#85 Justine Whitchurch | Personal Trainer | Author – Sobriety Delivered Everything Alcohol Promised

Today in the Confessional, host Sandy Lowres chats with a remarkable woman and her journey to sobriety after an addiction threatened her life.

Justine Whitchurch is a personal trainer, author, and recovered alcoholic (now thriving) 49year old Mum of two.

There has never been a more pertinent time to speak a message of hope to all of those caught in the clutches of poor mental and physical health, alcoholism, and addiction during this challenging time of COVID19 and its aftermath.

Every day, people are suffering and self-medicating with alcohol which Justine refers to as the ‘EPIDEMIC that will outlive the PANDEMIC’.

Her writing and blogging experience is centred around self-medicating, alcohol addiction, how exercise was the key to her turn around, mental health maintenance, living without alcohol although being ‘around’ it, and so much more.

Her journey of recovery is detailed in her book ‘Sobriety delivered EVERYTHING alcohol promised’.

Justine continues to ‘make her mess her message’ to provide an example that life without the bottle is beautiful.

Justine Whitchurch is a Health and Fitness Coach, writer and founder of Justine Whitchurch Enterprises. She created her company after finding success in her own recovery from alcohol addiction and mental health issues, through health and fitness. At rock bottom in 2012 she entered a rehab program and counselling sessions in a bid to regain control. Her psychologist at the time ‘suggested’ she should join the gym and start exercising. This is where the magic happened. With every challenge she conquered physically she also grew mentally. She quickly learned the significant correlation between good physical health and strong mental health. Now she is on a mission to ‘pay forward’ the gift of wellness by coaching other women, helping them structure their lives to incorporate all facets of wellness but mostly find their sense of self-worth again through fitness. “Being physically fit and strong in turn gives you the ability to face life’s challenges from a much healthier perspective.” Recognising that one of the key factors to success in recovery is support and belief from others, The Life factory aims to restore life to those who feel they have lost it. “Sometimes you need someone else to believe in you before you can believe in yourself.” Justine is also the author of ‘Sobriety delivered EVERYTHING alcohol promised’ which details her personal experience from a near death alcoholic mum of two through the stages of recovery to not only survive, but thrive.
