Tom Shanahan has been sober since 2012.
The New York attorney credits nutrition, fitness and spirituality for his continued success. So much so, he authored a science and fact-based guide on the subject called Spiritual Adrenaline: A Lifestyle Plan to Nourish and Strengthen Your Recovery. While writing the book, he’s launched a website, blog and Facebook Page.
Today, the adventure seeker has partnered with Out Adventures to launch a series of sober adventures in the Canadian Rockies and through the Peruvian Andes. He’s also off to the Azores Islands in Portugal with Body Roots. While they’re not exclusive to the gay community, the three travel experiences will focus on adventure, sobriety, meditation, nutrition/fitness and components of the 12-Step Program.
