I’m a mom, wife, teacher, daughter, friend, and wine-lover. I gave up booze for almost six months in 2016.  I guess I thought I was cured, that I could control it, so I started drinking again. Then my dad died. Watching him decline was very traumatic for me and I soothed myself at night with wine.  That led to daily drinking and daily hangovers. Almost a full year of misery. And now I’m quitting again.
