Emotional Eats Podcast

May 22, 2023

In episode 3, I have a real, eye opening conversation about alcohol and women with Deb Podlogar AKA the Mocktail Mom. 


Deb describes herself as just a normal mom who broke up with Chardonnay and began sharing delicious drinks she discovered that didn’t include alcohol.


In the episode, she gets real and shares how she got through some really hard times numbing herself with wine and the toll it took on her mentally and physically.  She shares about the shame and guilt of drinking more than she intended to.


We also talk about breaking up with mommy wine culture, and how people react to the word sober.


Listen until the end to learn the hidden gem of sober living.


You will also realize that sobriety can be fun and Deb sure is!

4:43  How it feels drinking alcohol, but also what it’s like taking a break from it.
