"I go to the gym … I do Pilates … I run marathons … I can’t be an alcoholic!"
Writer, broadcaster and Forward Trust Ambassador Bryony Gordon joins Clouds House Treatment Consultant Michael Rawlinson for a candid, nothing-off-limits conversation about how when everything in her life looked wonderful from the outside, she was really in the darkest depths of addiction. Bryony explains how she came to accept that she was suffering from a potentially fatal condition. 'It was just easier to accept that I was an alcoholic and addict. I could see that there was another life available to me.' Bryony also shares her experience of getting well in the 12 Step fellowships, how her emotional life has drastically improved and what she does now to keep herself safely in the middle of the recovery bed. For anyone who is unsure whether or not they have a problem but is curious to find out more, this short, moving, informative and funny video is a must-see.
