In this episode, Jen shares her journey with alcohol, from her early days of drinking at 15 to her decision to become sober. Growing up in a household without alcohol, Jen discusses how she turned to drinking to fit in and cope with insecurities and anxiety, leading to her involvement with party drugs during her teens. She recounts her years of putting rules around her drinking in an attempt to moderate, which didn’t work out. At times overtaken by the mommy wine culture. A turning point came after two significant events that filled her with shame and led her to seek therapy, change her lifestyle, and find a supportive sober community. Jen also shares the positive impact sobriety has had on her life, including improved confidence, being present, and enjoyment of life's moments, and hopes her story can inspire others to reconsider their relationship with alcohol.
