Episode Nine: Choose Life

 

In this episode I talk to my beautiful friend Sonia.

Sonia is someone who’s never had a drink problem but, except for the rarest of occasions, happily chooses not to drink. Imagine that! Who is this unusual creature? What made her thus? How does she cope? Pretty well, as it turns out.

She recognised early on that getting yourself all drugged up on a regular basis doesn’t add anything of real value to your life. And instead, learning to accept parties and people and feelings for exactly what they are, without habitually trying to escape from them, is how we truly choose life, just like Wham did in the 80’s.
