Anne Atkins - courage in beating alcohol
I was very sorry to read Anne Atkins has a drink problem but it's good she's come clean about it, not an easy thing for anyone to do. She is a well respected broadcaster and commentator here in the UK in bringing the Christian perspective on topical issues. Although she has her critics, I have always found myself nodding and agreeing with her well founded common sense approach.
So, Anne Atkins and her alcohol problem have hit the newspapers this last weekend. As she points out, it's the kind of thing which can creep on up people, perhaps even the most unlikely of people. I find myself thinking "but for the grace of God....".
I trust that she will have every strength and ounce of courage to overcome this difficulty and believe some good will come out of it. It is poignant for me, having recently blogged and rambled about why I'm tee total.
