Today, I am joined by the wonderful Sarah Levy! She is a writer and the author of Drinking Games which is a memoir and essays that explores the role that alcohol has in our formative years and what it means to opt out of a culture completely enmeshed in drinking. Sarah has been featured on Good Morning America, The Los Angeles Times, Buzzfeed, The New York Post, Apple Books, Pure Wow, Goodreads, Amazon, and more! Okay, I’m impressed!!
In this episode, she talks about her story with alcohol and why she decided to give it up. She is now six years sober. She is a new mom! She has a three month old baby and we kick off the conversation with some new mom talk!! We also have a super fun part of the conversation where we talk about Taylor Swift and our favorite books – this is a FUN one!
If you have been listening to this podcast for awhile, you know that I am super interested in the sober community and don’t love my relationship with alcohol so I love conversations like these. Plus what better time to have this conversation than during dry January!
I hope that you learn something in this episode and I hope that you feel encouraged and don’t feel any shame and I hope that you feel confident in the life decisions that you are making regardless of what they are!
