This is a very special episode of Over The Influence... Because to celebrate Shaz's 5 years of sobriety, Ben secretly invited her daughter Ella on the podcast!
Sharon has spoken about being an alcohol-free parent a lot on over the years... And has often reflected on how her drinking affected her relationships with her children. In this really honest episode, Ella talks about how she saw it from her side - and although there are definitely things that were difficult to hear in this conversation, Ella reflects on just how wonderful her relationship is with her Mum today.
As our Shazza hits five years alcohol-free, all of us at Over The Influence wanted to say a huge thank you and a Sharon-style BIG UP YERSELF to the one and only Sharon Hartley. Her willingness to talk about every aspect of alcohol-free life in an open and honest way has helped thousands of people across the world to rethink their drinking - and as the podcast grows and grows, we know that she will help thousands more to come.
