I believe in miracles because I am one. This obsession/relapse cycle is nothing new to me, and it first reared its head in college. I believed that being the "fun party girl" was the only way to be accepted and loved, even when it got me into loads of ...MORE

For most, drinking isn't their problem or solution. They can socialize and control their intake without having to do drugs to bounce themselves right up. They can recollect their night knowing they didn't hurt or cause any damage. They are the life of the party.

I'm a proud mama bear with over 2 1/2 years sobriety. Problem drinking is on the rise and this culture of wine o'clock memes is out of control. There's so much pressure in motherhood you'd think we'd promote healthier solutions than drinking life's stressors away.
I'm on a mission ...MORE
