July 2011: Momma Said
From the July 2011 Grapevine Magazine
I am currently serving a life sentence.
My momma always used to say, "Don't ever think you're smarter than Alcohol." Guess what? She was right.
I thought because I was successful, I didn't have a "real" problem. At 25, I was a pretty, married, emergency room nurse with two small children, a house, cars and other various toys. I was also drinking at 7 a.m. at a bar with my coworkers after our graveyard shift. Yes, everybody was doing it, but they all went home to sleep. I went home and drank more.
