Dear Viv: No-nonsense advice

by The Pool
Each Tuesday, The Pool’s resident agony aunt Viv Groskop tackles personal problems, emotional issues and all the nightmares of life both large and small.Viv Groskop gained her agony aunt qualifications at the School of Life, having made a load of mistakes, said a lot of idiotic things, smoked way too many cigarettes (40 a day at one time) and drunk too many glasses of wine, including wine she didn’t even like. She’s had lots of miniature everyday breakdowns where she’s used good friends, self-help books and lots of therapy to get through this occasional pain in the ass we call life. Now she's here to dispense the tough-love that your friends are too polite to give you.If you have a question for Viv, email All submissions will be kept anonymous.
