242: Cat Sims on alcoholism, mental health, and big balls

The Scummy Mummies Podcast

Nov 8 2022 • 54 mins

Our guest for this episode is author, podcaster and Instagram sensation Cat Sims, aka notsosmugnow!

We tackle some tricky topics such as Cat's struggle with drink and drugs, getting clean, and what to do if you think you have a problem. We also talk about

her experience of post-natal depression - what's the one sentence that sent her on a downward spiral, and how did she manage to climb back up?

There's some jollier chat as Helen sets a new date for giving up smoking, and Ellie shares her top tip for cleaning your toilet. It's more fun than it sounds. And of course we have some hilarious Scummy Mummy Confessions involving face paint and cat sick.

Cat's brilliant baby book, The First Time You Smiled (Or Was It Just Wind?), is out now. And do check out her ace podcast, You're Not the Only One.
