Web Exclusive: A Glimpse Through the Window

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.
