The Lights Were On.. …dimly

My inner bully/tormentor/scoffer/mocker is dying to tear into me about my silly accent, my crooked teeth, my impossible-to-style Lion King hair and a whole world of other ridiculous things, but guess what? I’m not listening. This is me. Whilst I’ve always deep down liked ME, I’ve always gone around assuming the rest of the world doesn’t. Any time I walk into a room, my (poorly tuned) gut instinct tells me everyone is immediately repulsed by me and hates me. And of course for that very reason, I used to escape and hide away, usually deep into a bottle of wine. Or three. But no longer! The drinking was one thing, learning new ways is another. It isn’t something you can suddenly let go of in an instant, but I’m getting there and I’m getting there because I’m sober. Figures, I suppose, given booze is a powerful depressant!

So here’s my chat with the lovely Norah Ginty.

Today I’m not going to drink.

  1. Oh, I loved seeing you live and in person! You are exactly as I imagined! And girlie, your hair is what everyone *wants,* you silly! Sleek and silky for days. Very good screen presence, yes, indeed. You tell your story so very well.

  2. Powerful interview.
    I saved the video for Sunday to watch.
    Over seven months sober and I find it beneficial to watch as a reminder to stay sober.
    Thank you for sharing.
