According to media personality Janet Mbugoa, she has abstained from alcohol since December 2021. Janet claimed she made the decision carefully and hasn’t looked back since.
Even if her decision was temporary, she said, she chose to abstain because she now has no benefit from alcohol.
“That’s a decision I made in December 2021. I just said I’d give him a break and not necessarily forever. He doesn’t serve me anymore. I haven’t had a drink since then,” Janet said.
She said she considered being sober for that period as long as a large millstone was worth celebrating. The former TV news anchor said she had not experienced any form of denial, saying she was fine.
“I mean, the difference is neither here nor there. I just feel like it’s not something I need to do right now. And I say it’s no big deal. I don’t wake up thinking about it all the time.”
Although Janet still goes out with friends who like to socialize drinks, she says she’s learned to restrain herself.
“Every time my friends and family drink, I restrain myself. I go out with them and still have a good time,” she said, adding that the decision serves her for a season, which she did not elaborate on.
“As long as she still serves me, I depend on her. I may come back one day or I may not come back one day. That’s what it is for now,” she said.
