Binge drinking – how one mum gave up the booze – Daily MailPosted: July 16, 2010
Story of how more mums are hitting the bottle in DAILY MAIL newspaper this week.
Gill Fletcher’s real life story of how she used to binge drink appeared in a discussion piece in the Daily Mail this week.
Gill, who has two children, began drinking heavily after her marriage broke down. But the morning after a particularly bad night before – when Gill made passes at neighbour’s husbands – she knew she had to stop.
And from that day she has not had another drink. This is the third time I have sold Gill’s inspirational story and she was particularly delighted to see such a lovely photo with the article.
Gill said: “That photo was taken in a studio with hair and make up. Afterwards the photographer at the Daily Mail was kind enough to email me some for my own personal use. It’s now one of my favourites.”
She also hopes talking about her own binge drinking will help other women to see you can change your life. Since she stopped five years ago, she has lost a huge amount of weight and literally forged a new life for herself and her two children.
