Anyone watch this show? I know it can be triggering. I’ve watched it since before I developed my drinking addiction. Oh my god, the new episode tonight made me yell at the TV and wake my dog and my husband. Ugh. Fucking fentanyl.
Yes, I’ve been watching this show since it started. I was at an AA meeting and missed tonight’s episode though. Now I have to watch it. lol
You’ll have to tell me your reaction. This fucking guy. Ugh. You’re not going to like the end.
I will say that I remember seeing an episode of this in the early 2000s and thinking, “She reminds me of me…” and that was the first time I questioned my drinking.
I like this show too! I’m gonna have to watch it now!
Watch! I started a PM to discuss
I watch it frequently, watched a lot when I was a drunk too.
I watch a lot of hoarders too. Addiction and compulsion are fascinating
Lol, @Lisa07 and I are watching Hoarders right now! People and their dysfunction fascinate me. Including my own.
Mike’s story correct?
That was the Intervention show tonight (fucking tragic) and now we are into Hoarders with “Tim,” rouuughhhh. But you’re west coast so no spoilers!
Lol yes I like that show too
Omg I’ve been wanting to start this thread for so long!!!
Whoa. Codependency at its worst.
I definitely watched this show alot when I was drinking. It almost made me feel better about my own addiction knowing I hadn’t fallen as hard as anyone on the show had. It took me a long time to realize rock bottom is different for everyone and I don’t have to be homeless, drink all day everyday, or be in trouble with the law to be an alcoholic.
This is a really good point, and it was the same for me while I was drinking. Now it’s just sad and I can’t watch multiple shows. It does put things in perspective sometimes particularly as it relates to the family dynamic and codependency.

I noticed it on hulu and couldn’t get past 2 minutes. Quickly blocked
i’ve watched the crap outta that show! i love the interventionists a lot. havent watched the new season though.
The new season is based in Vegas and that’s what drew me back in, because all my mom’s family is there. They’re all in recovery, too, lol! I am so glad my parents moved away when I was a baby.
