Today, Tammi and Sondra are honored to have on the show, Ann Dowsett Johnston. If you don’t know, Ann is the bestselling author of Drink: The Intimate Relationship Between Women and Alcohol and became the poster girl for the modern day alcoholic. The ladies talk about the alcohol industry, and specifically as it’s targeted to women, they talk about how quitting drinking makes sense as a #midlifesolution, the effects drinking had on her as a writer, and how Ann’s gratitude practice has been an essential part of her recovery. As a public speaker on these topics (if this is your first introduction to Ann, watch her TEDx Talk), Ann is generous, smart and well-versed on the real effects alcohol has on women, individually and as a culture. This is such an important interview, you may want to grab a pen and notebook!
This week Ann shares three items from her Unruffled Toolbox: (1) Daily gratitude list practice; (2) Writing in her journal; and (3) Her female sober tribe.
