Time To Quit Over Drinking
Now I have more experiences to ask your wisdom about and also, I have been talking about my decision to stop drinking for the past few months but never specifically a whole podcast episode dedicated to it. So people have been coming up to me whispering and asking, emailing quietly, “I’m thinking of … I think I want to stop drinking, I’m scared”. Then I’ll get, don’t tell me to stop, just responses and all I’m doing all is sharing what my experience has been. I’ve been writing about how it has impacted my marriage and my relationship and that’s been really interesting to see how people write to me about what I’ve shared and the fear associated with it.

I didn’t want to read it in public because I was afraid that people would think that I was an alcoholic.
