Powerful Women

 
LA was amazing, and brilliant. I am so grateful I was able to go. It renewed my spirit, and reminded me why I do what I do. It's not always easy to be so public about my sobriety, but I see why it is necessary. If no one is willing to stand on the firing line and talk openly about it then alcoholism will stay the dirty, little shameful secret it always has been. It doesn't deserve that much power.
 
I got to meet all of the beautiful women in the documentary-what a powerful force.

  1. Thank you for posting this -- I am eager to watch the documentary, so please post when/where it is available for the general public. For so many reasons, I am convinced that women (especially moms) who drink too much is a grossly understated statistic.

    I have followed your blog since you were first in People magazine in Nov. 2009 (I think?). Thank you for being so brave!! You will NEVER know how many people you have helped. God bless...

  2. Follow up: it took me about 10 times to type in the correct "prove you are not a robot" letters to get the above published. I didn't realize I also needed to type in FIRST the two letters it showed; THEN I was to type in the letters (capital sensitive).

    This may explain the extremely low number of postings for ages now...and I miss hearing from all of you! Cali, are you still out there? Annette? Gloria? Others who used to post?

  3. More follow up: it took me maybe 20 times to type in the right numerical and hard-to-read alphabetical/numerical codes to publish the above.

    If you have something to say, please don't give up. I know many of us would love to hear your thoughts, despite the technological hurdles!

  4. Hi Montana - Cali here. Yes, I still check in on this blog. I am afraid I have not done very well - I keep trying. Hope all is well.

  5. I so miss hearing from you all!! Since I updated to the new Google blogger there has been problems. I had a little pity party the other day-and was all like "Why do I even blog?" so thank you so much for posting-it means a lot!! Emily
