YES! I'm a alcoholic and have been sober since 2002! The holidays can be very hard on Non-drinkers being around all the parties and lets face it DRUNKS! It's not easy seeing someone you love act like a jerk when they drink, but it's up to the person to know their drinking limit. When I was a drunk I would say and do things I really regret! But I have the most amazing children (Gan 26, Ken 23, and Annie 20) who forgave their mother for being the "Drunk Mom". So as a gift to your children during the holidays don't let YOUR drinking be the thing your children remember the MOST about the holidays.
Happy Sober Holidays!
