Laura Cathcart-Robbins (TW)

"I was basically taking a lethal dose of alcohol and drugs to get to sleep" - Laura Cathcart-Robbins

Laura Cathcart-Robbins joins Samantha Baines to talk divorce and addiction. Laura openly talks about "improvising her education", entering into her marriage lying and using alcohol and drugs to 'cope'. The two discuss the five stages of grief, the importance of asking for help and Laura lets us know how much it costs to check into recovery in the US and the difficulties of getting divorced and sober at the same time.

Laura talks about the journey of first hiding and then sharing her story plus still having Thanksgiving with her ex husband every year.
