The British summer may well be unpredictable, but we'll always find time to have a long Sunday afternoon lazing on a picnic blanket in the warmth.

Sadness happens to all of us, but in much of the world we don’t know how to handle it. Let alone talk about it.

As was I. So why a…

If you've ever worked in a boozy workplace, you know how difficult it can be if you're cutting down or giving up.

When you're drinking, surrounded by your drinking buddies, and having a good time, it's hard to imagine what life would be like when you're sober.

If you're newly sober, will you be able to…
