Alcoholics Anonymous - Janelle on 18MAY2023

Thursday, 18 May 2023 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
The real cost of Alcoholism

Janelle’s dad died when she was six years old, and she grew up in a single parent family in New Zealand.  With her mum out working Janelle and her older sister were free to do what they wanted after school. A self-confessed naughty kid, Janelle soon found her group and was shoplifting, wagging school and drinking alcohol as a 13-year-old.

When she left school Janelle worked in pubs and clubs where alcohol and drugs were freely available. Blackouts became common and as her young kids grew up, she tried unsuccessfully to give up the booze. With the support of her husband Janelle went into a 10-day rehab, became aware of Alcoholics Anonymous and found a stable recovery program during the Covid era.

Through AA Janelle has been able to get her life back to “normal” and has been sober in AA for over two years now.

If you think that alcohol may be a problem, then Alcoholics Anonymous could help you. Give them a call on 1300 222 222 or see their website
