Web Exclusive: A Glimpse Through the Window
A woman gets the chance to see the changes in her family life thanks to sobriety
"My husband saw me in the window at the sink, and gave me the most beautiful smile."
I never fully realized the extent to which my drinking affected my family, until I was given a small glimpse from my husband one afternoon 'through a window.'
My last year of drinking was a continued downward spiral into that black hole at the bottom of a bottle that many of us end up in. I had become a daily blackout drinker, and so much of what happened is was told to me by my husband, daughters, family and friends, usually the next day after coming to.
