Pooja Bhatt is an Indian film director and known widely. She recently shares her experiences and journey of being sober for long four years. While she talks about her life changes through this. She wrote – “Four years sober today! Earlier it was pink champagne, malt & packed, city bars. Now it is pink skies & deserted, country roads. What an enriching, searing journey it has been. Gratitude to life & the divine force that has watched over me, kept me true, vulnerable, strong. #sobrietyrocks.”

Pooja Bhatt has always been under the impact of alcohol. She finally opens up about the alcoholism and says – “I want to bust the stigma attached to alcoholism in our country. Women particularly are discouraged from seeking help because it’s a matter of shame for the family. We don’t share our pain or frailties, we cover our weaknesses and it becomes a cancer.”

Earlier this year she did wrote this, sharing her thought – “Three yrs & nine months sober today. One more quarter and I will be four. As someone who drank openly. I chose to recover openly. I truly felt it was important to share my journey to tell others, women especially, who might be struggling that they are not alone & if I could do it so could they. Was ridiculed by some but lauded for being courageous by most.”
