That Sober Guy Podcast


My name is Shane Ramer. As long as I was high I didn't have to feel. Drugs took the pain away, and to be honest, I liked being high. I thought I was cool. I even had a nickname, 'Cocaine Shane'. I'm a regular dude from the suburbs in Northern California. After 17 years of struggling with drugs and alcohol, for the first time in my life I took a stand for something. I didn't care what anyone would say. I didn't care what anyone would think. I went to rehab and got sober September 11th, 2013. Now I talk to people about addiction, alcoholism, recovery, and more. If I can do it, you can do it too. Check us out at www.ThatSoberGuy.com

Scott leads others to recovery with empathy.

Thirty years ago he was on the edge. Struggling from addiction, considering suicide, and feeling like things were unraveling. He was at rock bottom. The day after trying to kill himself, he lew home and immediately entered treatment. He lived the embarrassment, fear, and helplessness surrounding addiction. And he has come out the other side whole.

Today, Scott gets to give back. He is now 31 years sober, working to empower others on their journey. He get results. 

Did you know? As founder of Second Chance, he worked to break the cycle of substance abuse, unemployment, poverty, and homelessness for 25,000 at-risk teens and adults going through the incarceration system.
