Growing up in the UK and Africa, Emma remembers alcohol was always present. She and her friends began drinking in their mid-teens – they did not socialize without booze. In her 20s and 30s, Emma lived a hectic stressful life working internationally for some huge corporations. She moved to Australia, became a mother, and continued drinking – in fact, even with healthy hobbies like running, Emma’s world began to revolve around alcohol and she didn’t think she could do anything about it. She burned out, left work. A drunken fall sent her to the emergency room. On today’s episode, Emma and Annie talk about Emma’s journey to find freedom from alcohol and become a This Naked Mind coach as well as the impact of adult drinking on the children in their lives, even when there’s no physical violence or verbal abuse involved.
