This week's episode is with Clare Pooley, author of the hugely successful 'The Sober Diaries - How one woman stopped drinking and started living'.
Clare found the juggle of a stressful career and family life a struggle so she left her successful role as a Managing Partner in one of the world's biggest advertising agencies to look after her family. She knew the change wouldn't be easy but she never expected to find herself drinking more than a bottle of wine a day. The book is her journey back to herself, through getting sober and is an inspiring, funny and poignant story of living life to the full.
We chat about:
- when to consider stopping drinking
- how she knew she had a problem
- what she learned about herself through sobriety
- her sober social life
- sober parenting
Hope you enjoy it, to accompany the episode I've written about my own experience of sobriety over on the blog www.motherkind.co/blog-1/
