Hej hej and welcome to my blog corner on the Global Voices portal!
I’m Anna, a Swedish researcher, author, and interpretor as well as former president of the Swedish Red Cross and IOGT-NTO. In fact, I was the first female President of IOGT-NTO, the largest Swedish social movement for sobriety and democracy.
I’ve been a member of the Swedish sobriety movement since my youth. The fact that I found a commitment to a social movement for sobriety in my teens was absolutely life saving for me, as I grew up with a mother who had an alcohol problem.
Here, I’m writing about my experience and story to help uncover and undo the pervasive alcohol norm.
