Rising Festival Talk: How Quitting Alcohol Changed my Life
Clare Pooley, like many women, used alcohol as a way of dealing with stress. A glass of wine at the end of the day helped her to unwind – it was ‘me time.’ By 2015, however, Clare was drinking a bottle of wine a day, sometimes more.
Clare talks about the impact drinking had on her life, and what happened when she quit. She tells us how dealing with addiction and other life traumas needn’t break you; it can turn you into a superhero. And, finally, Clare encourages you to share your own authentic story with others, and help to change the world.
