Podcast: Rosamund Dean & Clemmie Telford on Mindful Drinking & Sobriety As A Parent

This is a special episode of Not Another Mummy Podcast, recorded live in front of an audience at Redemption – a fantastic alcohol-free bar and vegan restaurant in London’s Covent Garden. My guests are Rosamund Dean, Deputy Editor of Grazia and author of the book Mindful Drinking: How Cutting Down Can Change Your Life, and Clemmie Telford, Creative Director, blogger & podcaster who gave up drinking earlier this year.

We discuss the link between parenthood and alcohol – why do so many of us use drinking to relax when the kids go to bed?

Rosamund talks about what mindful drinking means to her – how she plans in alcohol-free days every week and the benefits she feels. Clemmie talks about the moment she decided to go sober, how she’s navigating nights out and weddings alcohol-free and how she’s never slept better.

We discuss the connection between alcohol and mental health, the peer pressure involved with drinking and how both Clemmie and Rosamund reframed it – they’ve given up hangovers rather than depriving themselves of alcohol.
