Stella & Georgie on the Child/Parent Dynamic


A Polaroid snap.

A desperate need for that feather in the cap. 

You thought your childhood was beautiful. You felt loved; you had fun; you don’t know what all the fuss is about, but I am telling you that when I was someone that drank alcohol, I was a Brussel sprout.

Kids. Such beautiful things. Kurt Douglas dimples in chins, sweet, sweet eyes, the smell of baby breath, and then I come along with the stench of death. 

Hoisting them onto my shoulders, swerving this way and that like a giraffe trying to become the zoo acrobat. 

I could have done much more.

I could have been much more. 

And that’s why I want to create this movement of a million people.

I want our children to see that it’s cool to be someone that doesn’t drink alcohol, but first, we need to wake the fuck up and take a look at the devastation that we are wreaking in this world.

Every time we hold a bottle of wine or a can of lager in our hand we are a walking, talking billboard for the alcohol industry. Our children become us: the imagery; the immorality; the constant psychological battery.

And that’s why today’s podcast is so crucial.

A child telling her mother how her drinking drove their relationship to a dead-end, and how the transformation to someone that doesn’t drink alcohol means she’s now her best friend. 

Stella.

Georgie.

Thanks for your honesty, courage and bravery.

Here is today’s podcast.
