The Sober Truth with Jenny De Lacy & Lara O’Donnell

After reading all the quit-lit (yes, that is a genre apparently) books and listening to all the podcasts on giving up drinking (including this one), both Jenny De Lacy and Lara O’Donnell felt like they had been sold a lie when they didn’t experience what is known as “the pink cloud” and feel AH-MAZING when they stopped drinking.
They had all these questions of all these people who were banging on about how great it was to quit. Because their experience didn’t reflect all the great stories they were hearing, they really did feel like something didn’t add up.
What was it that they were missing?
How can you just stop drinking after years and years and be happy about that? Like, how can you go from two bottles a day to just not drinking? What was the experience between stopping and feeling better? What happens next? Do you just automatically feel better? Why don’t I feel better?
Come and join us for this really great conversation where Jenny and Lara tell it as it really was for them to give up drinking (no pink clouds in sight) and we address their challenges and how they can be overcome.

My Mission

Fiona Redding


My mission in life is to share everything I have learned – and am continuing to learn – about turning my own life around and to really help you understand that happiness is to be found in the overcoming of obstacles and challenges in your life, and not in the absence of them.  To achieve your potential in life, you need to become your potential.  And for that to be, you need to understand yourself, and learn how to harness your strengths and overcome your weaknesses.   You have the power within you to create whatever reality you choose, and I am here to help you know that if you don’t like what you are experiencing, then you can absolutely change that.   But you do have to choose, believe, and be open to all possibilities, and to keep showing up every day, even when it feels really hard. Because if you do what is easy, your life will be hard.  But if you do what is hard, your life will be easy.
