A&E Intervention TV show

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.

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 watch it frequently, watched a lot when I was a drunk too.

I watch a lot of hoarders too. Addiction and compulsion are fascinating

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.

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.
