If you are listening to the bubble hour you may have also heard me in my early sobriety days.
In this episode I was 6 months sober. We talk more about early sobriety and how we deal with our families. You don’t need to be a mother.

Hi Anne. I enjoyed your honest share at the beginning. My depression and anxiety were big reasons for me to stop too. I’m so happy for you that you’ve changed your life for the better. Noddy x
Thanks so much for sharing this. Your story is amazing. I didn’t realise you had lots of day ones before it stuck. I too often have wondered why I have every aspect of my life under control, but when it comes to alcohol I just can’t get it together. You are such an inspiration and your kids are so lucky to have you. I’m sure their lives are different now that you and your husband both don’t drink (wish mine would stop).
I haven’t told my kids anything as they are younger. If they were older I think I’d be open with them. PDTG
Thank you. I’m glad a though to post this.
I did have many many years of trying to moderate or control my drinking.
Sometimes it worked. But the compulsion to drink became stronger and stronger. I was very scared.
Eventually the fear of DUIs, loss of job, death! was greater than the fear of sobriety.
