Speaking with Amos, Cat & Angus this morning, The Queen Sesh’s Annaliese Dent shared her ‘mum confession’ after realising her ‘glass of wine a night’ had developed to more than the recommended amount.
It wasn’t until she was recently filling out a form at the GP that she realised she might have something to think twice about.
In a recent article for News.com, Annaliese revealed she lied on the form when it asked her ‘how many standard drinks do you have per drinking day?’ She wrote 1 - 4… but her husband laughed out loud when he saw, telling the receptionist “that’s an outright lie”.
This morning on air, Annaliese explained more:
“It got me to really reflect on my drinking of late and what I realised is, I’d sort of gone from that ‘social just enjoying it responsibly and living my best life’ to actually leaning on it as a bit of an escape.
“I was feeling quite stressed about life, about motherhood, and I was definitely leaning on it as an escape, which is a dangerous territory. It’s not healthy.
“If you put something out there like that, other mums, other women, other people going through it will connect with it and they won’t feel alone”
