Drinking and How It Changed My Life



Drinking and how it changed my life:  Ann Dowsett-Johnston at TEDxHomeBushRdWomen

This is just fabulous!!  Recorded in January of this year she talks about her book ‘The Intimate Relationship between Women and Alcohol

I agree with EVERY SINGLE THING SHE SAYS <sorry for shouting>

She absolutely nails it and introduces me to a word I’d not heard before ALCOGENIC

To quote Ann in a Guardian article which you can find here and is absolutely a must read:

We live in an alcogenic culture, awash with cheap liquor, where drunkenness is normalised. It should come as no surprise children are mimicking their parents.

We’re swimming in an ocean of cheap alcohol. Our children are in trouble. Women are too. We’re medicating what ails us with our culture’s cheapest drug. And as a culture, we’re in deep denial.
