Janet Mbugua – I’ve not touched alcohol since December 2021
According to media personality Janet Mbugua, she has abstained from alcohol since December 2021. Janet claimed that she made the choice carefully and hasn’t looked back since.
She said that even if her decision was temporary, she had made the choice to abstain because she was not now benefiting from alcohol.
“This is a decision I made in December 2021. I just said I will give it a break and it’s not necessarily forever. It’s not serving me anymore. Since then I have not had a drink,” Janet said.
She said she considers being sober for that long as a major millstone worth celebrating. The former TV news anchor also said she has not experienced any form of deprivation, saying she’s been fine.
“I mean, the difference is neither here nor there. I just feel like it’s not something I need to do now. And I say it’s not a big deal. I don’t wake up thinking about it all the time.”
Although Janet still goes out with friends, who love having social drinks, she says she has learnt to restrain herself.
“Every time my friends and family members drink, I constrain myself. And I go out with them and I still have a good time,” she said, adding that the decision is serving her for a season whose detail she didn’t delve into.
“As long as it’s still serving me, I lean on it. One day I might go back or one day I might not go back. So right now that’s what it is,” she said.
