I am really loving the sobriety chats. This one was exceptional and included a lot of points that will help people in all stages of sobriety.
Unpicked was one of the first blogs I found when I started thinking about stopping. That led me to Mrs D and other blogs. I didn’t stop then, but it gave me hope to keep trying.
I also wanted to reply that years before getting near sobriety I watched her blog and was amazed how much fun her trips were and it gave me hope to find joy after being AF.
Really loved this chat thank you, so inspiring
I could have listened to Jean for hours and hours. I connected with so much of her experience which is such a comfort. Jean is so incredibly warm, honest and genuine and that sobriety chat will stay with me always. Thank you Mrs D. I’ll be looking for more from you Jean…..books, poems, podcasts….the lot! You are an inspiration. I am moved beyond words by your story. Amazing! X
Wonderful interview and interviewee. Gave me inspiration and Jean’s poem read by Lotta at the end was so heartfelt.
This might be my favorite experience story ever, beautifully told too. Thanks so much for this Lotta and jean! Thank you for being so vulnerable, Jean.
