"I was a mother. A professional. I was also an alcoholic. I would never be able to moderate my drinking. If I didn’t change, the physical problems I had started having; pancreatic and stomach issues, intense depressive episodes, exhaustion, and ocular migraines were all going to eventually culminate in decimating my quality of life completely. I wasn’t going to be a mother to my children and honestly, at some point I was going to drive home the wrong night and something terrible could happen."
