Grey-area drinking and other honest admissions

Grey-area drinking and other honest admissions

I appreciate this conversation with guest, Lisa May Bennett, about our shared history around grey-area drinking, sobriety, and the way in which addictive patterns can keep us stuck.

Lisa May Bennett is a repeat late bloomer and the author of My Unfurling: Emerging from the Grip of Anxiety, Self-Doubt, and Drinking. She had a flourishing career in marketing and communications for more than two decades, including an eighteen-year stretch at the National Organization for Women. By publishing her first book in her 50s, she hopes to demonstrate that it's never too late to chase your dreams. Lisa is working on book number two about the process of self-publishing. She lives in Maryland and plans to cross the country in an RV with her husband one day.
