Hi and welcome to my guest blog!
I was a heavy and regular binge alcohol user for my entire adult life up until the age of 35. Disguising an ever-growing dependency within the realms of acceptable social alcohol consumption norms, I did not consider my problem to extend to one of being ‘an alcoholic’ but I knew, nonetheless, that I was not in control of alcohol.
After a particularly heavy binge that landed me in hospital, I decided to quit using alcohol altogether, and went on to found Soberistas.com in November 2012 – a social network website aimed at women with alcohol dependency issues.
In the last three years I have written four books on the subject of alcohol dependency.
I now work full time as editor and director of Soberistas. I live in Sheffield, UK with my two daughters, and am a keen runner. I’ve been a happy Soberista for over four years.
