Have you noticed an increase in your drinking or started drinking later in life? If you said yes! you are not alone.
With menopause, grief, and financial and work stress, women choose to start self-soothing with alcohol for the first time in their lives.
The good news is, you can get sober over 50 too!
I believe the same reasons we drink are the same reasons we can choose not to.
My guest today, Peggi Cooney, is on the podcast to share her story of starting to drink in her 50s and the methods she used to get sober over 50.
Peggi is the author of This Side of Alcohol: Random thoughts and candid words of pain, hope, humor, love, and all that is possible in sobriety. – I highly suggest picking this one up!
She is also a social work instructor and coach with a master's in Social Work from California State University, Chico, and spent 16 years in Child Welfare and Adult Protective Services as a social worker.
