In this episode I hand the mic over to Sian to tell her story of moving from being a functioning alcoholic with a young child to being sober, and the journey of discovery and understanding things about herself this has led her on.
Alcohol can often be problematic, especially when it is being used to mask other difficult experiences that are going on underneath.
Thanks so much to Sian for sharing her story. I know that it can be really difficult to share these experiences (that’s one of the reasons I want to do it - to make it more common place), so I really do appreciate everyone who contributes and to you for listening.
If you could take a moment to rate and review this podcast on iTunes that would help these stories reach more people, and I’d appreciate that so much!
