1. Alcohol Dependency and Recovery. Why Sobriety Works Better For You than the Dark Side of Wine Mum Culture Clarissa Kristjansson 43:37

My guest this week is Agata Connor a certified Sober Coach for women who want to permanently remove alcohol from their diet. 
An ex-wine mum who is on a mission to share her story of alcohol abuse
Women’s alcohol usage has increased markedly over the last 20 years and is often portrayed as glamourous and fun.
However, there is a dark side of the wine mum culture and alcohol can affect us on a physical, mental, and spiritual level.

In this episode, Agata and I openly and frankly talk about a topic that is often hard to discuss openly. We cover:

  • her journey and why sobriety is better 
  • how do women fall into the trap of self-medicating with alcohol 
  •  what usually prompts people to start reflecting on their drinking
  •  what are the challenges people face when they decide to stop drinking
  • how she helps other women break free from the drinking culture.
