[WATCH] FLO 107.1 DJ SENEN “SLIM” RODRIGUEZ TALKS OVERCOMING ALCOHOLISM “…BY 730 PM I’M PASSED OUT DRUNK IN MY HOUSE”!!
Denver DJ for FLO 107.1 and Jammin’ 101.5, Senen “Slim” Rodriguez gets candid with his alcohol addiction.
Slim says “I was putting a smile on my face in an effort to entertain the city. But I was going home and I was miserable.” He also states that when he would wake up from his hangover from the night before, he would realize he would have to stop at the liquor store while he’s on his way to work, which definitely seemed like a cry for help.
“I got off work at 6 o’clock. And by 7:30, I’m passed out drunk in my house,” he said.
Not only did this addiction harm him physically and I’m sure mentally, he received a DUI, lost multiple relationships, jobs, pretty much everything.
Slim quickly realize he had to change but it wouldn’t be easy by far, so he started off by locking himself in his house with no liquor for 24 hours….and he did it.
“I went to my boss and I said “I’m over 24 hours!” and he said “no way!’ And I was Like ‘Yeah! I’m over 24 hours!’ And it was just so amazing.”
Slim expressed his story of addiction to his listeners and followers on social media when he started on his sobriety journey a little over a year ago. (Congratulation on your sobriety!!!)
He credits Alcoholics Anonymous meeting on his journey to sobriety, and now has a new show on FLO 107.1 where recovering addicts can share their stories on “Sharing Our Stories” on Sundays airing at 630am.
