Has anyone been told by their consultant not to drink alcohol once diagnosed with breast cancer? I have and it's hard to swallow!

This was a question we had in the Facebook community and a flurry of messages followed. So I wanted to talk about my personal relationship with alcohol and how that has changed over the years.

So come and join me on my thought processes and why becoming teetotal was easier for me than moderating my alcohol intake. 

I am embarking on my 9th year alcohol-free and am loving it still!

Podcast mention: Myth Busting with an Oncologist 

About Dani:

The Menopause and Cancer Podcast is hosted by Dani Binnington, menopause guide, patients advocate for people in menopause after a cancer diagnosis, and founder of the online platform Healthy Whole Me. 

There is lots of information out there about the menopause but hardly any if you have had a cancer diagnosis as well. Many people say to me they have no idea what their options are, who to ask for help, and that they feel really isolated in their experiences. 

I started this podcast because there was nothing out there when I was thrown into surgical menopause at the age of 39, which followed on from my cancer diagnosis aged 33.

Through the episodes, I want to create more awareness, share information from our fabulous guest experts, doctors and other specialists in the cancer and menopause field. 

And of course, I will share stories from the people in our community.

So that together we can work towards a better menopause experience. For all of us.

More educated, better informed and less alone.
