A woman from Jersey says going sober has saved her life.
Jen Browne decided to give up drinking after years of experiencing problems with her mental health as a result.
In the past, she says she often blamed other aspects of her life for her low mood - such as her work or relationships - but eventually realised there was only one thing coming between her and happiness.
At her worst, she even contemplated taking her own life.
Luckily, it never came to this and Jen managed to reach out to family and friends who have supported her in her recovery.
To mark her alcohol-free journey, she has recently set up an Instagram page called Sober Jersey Girl, where she posts about her milestones and achievements.
She says it has given her a new sense of hope, which she is keen to share with others who have had similar experiences.
