My Not So Secret Recovery:
From The Author Of The Blog My Not So Secret Diary
Claire Hatwell is a wife, a mother of four and an advocate for sober living, having fought a battle with alcohol addiction and won.
Addiction comes in many forms, there isn’t a stereotypical addict or a certain way into recovery, and what works for one person won’t necessarily work for all. Claire shares her personal experiences to give hope to those in situations similar to the one she was in. Her intention is to show those in need that there is a way out of addiction, a way for families to understand those close to them, and a way to see light at the end of the tunnel. Claire says, if she can get sober, anyone can, “There were so many years when I wondered about my drinking, but people like me don’t have problems like that… or do they? Sometimes it’s hard to admit something to others, and harder still to admit it to yourself.”
Having written the popular blog My Not So Secret Diary for the past few years, this is Claire’s first book, and the story of her recovery and my journey to a life of sobriety. Claire has been sober since 2016.
