Dustin Dunbar grew up poor in Midwest America with an abusive, alcohol-addicted father and grandfather, and vowed to never be like them. Devouring psychology books and researching addiction in his twenties, Dunbar earned a doctorate in psychology and believed at that time that he had broken his family’s chains. In 2009, Dunbar was handpicked by Ryan Seacrest for LA Shrink and Endemol Productions Dallas Life Coach, where Dunbar was the “Shrink” and “Life Coach” on those pilots. After drinking moderately, responsibly, and socially for twenty years, he too became addicted to alcohol. He overcame his addiction at the age of forty-eight and has since been helping others overcome theirs. Dunbar is a coach at WeAretheAFR.org, a non-profit online community helping others with alcohol addiction and raising consciousness. Dunbar’s true passions are spending time with his two young daughters, writing, and sports. He currently lives in San Diego, California.
You’re Doing Great!
And other lies alcohol told me
Dustin Dunbar had it all. A beautiful wife, two sweet baby girls, a degree in psychology, and properties around the world—the building blocks of a nascent real estate empire. All the while, he happily believed every lie alcohol told him, such as how whisky, beer, and doing shots are almost part of the equipment for being a “real man.” It wasn’t until after many damaging years of alcohol dependency that he escaped what he dubs “the alcohol matrix,” breaking free from the myths that alcohol compelled him to believe.
Filled with entertaining true-life tales, hard-earned wisdom, and easy-to-follow advice for recognizing the truth about alcohol, You’re Doing Great! is a powerful invitation to discover the real you that thrives on the other side of addiction.
