Lee-DavyIn 2009, Lee Davy gave up alcohol to save his marriage. It didn’t work. His wife divorced him, and in a blink of an eye he had lost everything he had known and loved for the past 20 years.

Undeterred he flung himself into sobriety and changed every facet of his life. Today, Lee has overcome addictions to nicotine, alcohol, gambling, sugar, and pornography, as well as becoming vegan, and learning to fall in love all over again.

He gives back to the world by inspiring and coaching others to do the same through The Alcohol & Addiction Podcast, The Needy Helper, The Needy Helper Hub, and The Needy Helper Community Forum.
