If you are like my wonderful guest, Lisa May Bennett and me in episode 250 - a woman who grew up with insecurities and self-doubt and found relief from anxiety and those insecurities by drinking, you will appreciate this episode today.

 Lisa is a repeat late bloomer who writes about personal growth and trying new things on her blog, Bittersweet Nugget. She first decided she wanted to be a writer at eleven years old but struggled for years with self-doubt and anxiety. Now, she has published her first book, My Unfurling, Emerging from the Grip of Anxiety, Self-Doubt, and Drinking at age fifty-six and hopes to serve as an example for others who wonder if it's too late to chase their dreams.

 In this episode, Lisa shares her drinking journey, from how it started and ended and how things are without alcohol. She also shares how she battled self-doubt and anxiety growing up, which led to her relationship with alcohol, and Lisa will of course share her wonderful book with you and how she is finding motivation to stay sober today.
