Megan's Recovery Story
"There is no right or wrong way to recover. The right way is what works for you!" - Megan
The normalization of drinking alcohol to cope with the struggles and anxiety of being a Mom these days almost took me down--because OOPs....I got addicted to alcohol. I bought into the distorted group think that wine was my key to survival. A reward at the end of a hard day managing the stress of a full-time career, a home and a family. I felt like I had earned the right to drink every night, I felt like I deserved it. Before I quit, I believed that I needed alcohol. I couldn't fathom having any fun at a party, feeling any joy around the holidays or be able to relax on a Friday night--or any night. I feared I would lose friends, couldn't make friends and my relationship with my spouse would suffer. I was wrong. Dead wrong. I became aware of my addiction early and broke up with alcohol Jan 9, 2019. I didn't have to hit the proverbial "rock bottom" to realize alcohol was no longer serving me, I just needed to wake up .
