8 thoughts on “Anna from Storm in a Wine Glass

  1. I too am trying to embark on my own journey of taking control of my alcohol habits, without hitting rock bottom in the traditional sense. One day I realized that enough is enough and I can no longer make excuses for myself, but that I also need to put myself first sometimes. I think this is especially hard for women with people in our lives who depend us.

    1. “Enough is enough” is the perfect feeling for launching a recovery. People depending on me stopped me from doing what I needed to do to take care of myself. I think I could have stopped drinking much earlier had I been in a situation that supported going to meetings or rehab or whatever. Single parenting puts a lot of pressure on women. You’ve got me thinking about one of my favorite projects — to one day create a retreat geared to women where they can bring their kids. Most women don’t have someone who can look after an infant for a month while they try to heal.

      Putting yourself first becomes second nature after a while. Let me know how it goes!


    1. There will always be laundry … ha ha! But it feels so good to be caught up on things like laundry, you know? It’s like going to the dentist. Nobody does that regularly when they’re drinking, but keeping up with normal things that other people do is kind of rewarding. ๐Ÿ’•
