Alcohol is the only drug you have to justify not taking! Janey quit for dry January 2018 and never looked back...but bizarrely there is so much shame attached to not drinking, it can take a while to adjust. Janey discusses the importance of self-care and reminds you that it can be hard but its so worth while. Her biggest surprise was to find that she wasn't in fact 'giving anything up' she was gaining a whole lot, She found, as the title of Catherine Gray's (a forthcoming guest!) excellent book says , The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober
Clare Pooley quit the booze and documented her experiences in the popular blog Mummy was a Secret Drinker, this led to the release of her best selling book The Sober Diaries,
