Janet Mbugua Celebrates 2 Years of Sobriety

Celebrated former news anchor Janet Mbugua is sharing her journey toward sobriety as she approaches the milestone of two alcohol-free years.

Through her YouTube channel, this renowned media personality opened up about how her decision to quit alcohol was entirely personal, with no external influence, and devoid of any set timeframe.

Janet emphasized that her path to sobriety is still a new one, and she hasn’t firmly decided whether she will reintroduce alcohol into her life.

“I’ve abstained from alcohol, and come December, it will mark two years since I made that choice. It’s a decision I believed was right for me. It’s something I may choose to return to in a year, a decade, or perhaps never,” candidly shared the mother of two.

She clarified that her reluctance to set a strict timeline was because she wanted to avoid putting undue pressure and unrealistic expectations on herself. She recognized that life-altering decisions like the one she made aren’t straightforward.

“However, I am not imposing any unrealistic expectations on myself. Making a decision like this can be difficult, but in life, everything can be challenging. It’s about choosing your battles,” stated the former prime-time news anchor.

Janet also offered words of encouragement to the family and friends of those fighting addiction or attempting to quit alcohol.

She urged them to support their loved ones and acknowledged that discipline doesn’t come naturally to everyone, especially after engaging in a behavior for an extended period.

For Janet, the journey has become more manageable because she can now discern the stark differences between her life when she used to drink and her life without alcohol.

“I’ve lived a life where I can compare what life was like with that decision and life without it. When you’re trying to cultivate discipline, it may not come naturally to everyone. Sometimes we desire things that come effortlessly to us. To those who have chosen to quit drinking, please refrain from pressuring them to take a drink. You never know what they had to overcome to make that choice. Let them be,” she emphasized.

Concluding, she emphasized that her focus is not on showcasing her sobriety as an accomplishment but merely sharing the beautiful decision she made for herself.

“When I say I don’t drink, it’s not a display of superiority; it’s simply the reality I’ve chosen for myself.”
