Getting Started

Mar 19, 2020, 12:12 PM
In the first episode of the new alcohol free podcast, Over The Influence, BBC broadcast journalist Sharon Hartley and Guinness World Record holder Freddie Bennett talk about... Well, firsts!

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is get started on an alcohol free journey - the first social occasion, the first time you tell your friends, the first time you go to the pub - and in this episode Sharon and Freddie share some practical tips from their lives about how they approached it and succeeded.

If you're on an alcohol free or low alcohol journey - or thinking about starting one - this podcast is for you. Whether you're going completely alcohol free like Sharon or Freddie, or if you're just sober curious... Know you're not going it alone!
