Anxiety is a very common problem. In fact, 30% of people will suffer from a bout of anxiety at some point in their lives.... and Vic is one of them In todays episode Vic tries to work out if past feelings of panic were 100% caused by drinking or was it her body crying out for help?

Too many of us struggle to find our confidence in our sobriety. As a result, we go out and less and less, become hermits and eventually relapse. The trick to a long lasting sobriety is rediscovering your confi ..read more
