In April, Emily Weir accomplished a remarkable feat by staying sober for five years.
The 32-year-old Home and Away actress claims she still struggles to stay sober throughout the holiday season.
Even though she is “proud” of what she has accomplished, she claimed that Christmas still involves some amount of exclusion for her because she is unable to have fun like those around her.
There are several gatherings and social events. She told The Daily Telegraph, “I guess I do feel something, not the pull or need to drink, which has happily subsided for me, but how will I disperse my energy and how long do I want to remain at that party until people get to the point where you can kind of be excluded.
“The reality is, I still occasionally feel excluded—not because people intentionally exclude me, but rather because I am not on their level.”
“So I leave early, and sometimes I do feel sad because I wish I didn’t have this problem, but then I would much rather be healthy and be sane than the reverse because if you don’t keep in front of it, for me to drink again would really imply some severe issues,” the speaker continued.
The serial star, who plays restaurant owner Mackenzie Booth on the Channel Seven program, continued by stating that it is “natural” for a sober person to feel conflicted about being “proud” while secretly wishing they weren’t.
She justified her decision to forgo socializing in favor of her sobriety by saying that the “price is just too high” to gamble.
Weir is scheduled to perform on the Carols in the Domain Christmas special, which airs right after the cast of Home and Away has finished filming for the year.
After spending the holidays with her loved ones, she said she will then jet off to Bali for her first solo adventure.
Weir landed her breakthrough role as Mackenzie on Home and Away in 2019.
Prior to that, she appeared in the TV series The Sleepover Club in 2003.
Weir described her casting on Home and Away as like a dream come true in an interview with Stuff.
‘It was like winning the Lotto for myself and for all my extended family members,’ she said.
‘My family still watches Home and Away. They call it Homie. When Homie is on… everything just shuts down. You are not allowed to make calls or anything.’
