Victoria Vanstone started drinking at 11 but it took several decades and two children to realise her drinking was a problem. For her and for others. An embarrassing problem she could no longer ignore.

In this episode of No Filter, guest host Kate Langbroek speaks to Victoria about the massive red flags she missed in her twenties and thirties. 

So what exactly was it that turned ‘the life of the party’ towards sobriety? And does she feel like she’s lost her identity now that she is no longer a ‘party girl’?
