It was the insidious, passive-aggressive, quiet bullying from other women.

But mostly, it was being used as a tool to make another woman feel superior.

It was in that moment that I realized there HAD to be a better way to get sober.

I didn’t need that woman’s approval (or anyone else’s) to get sober. All I needed was a willingness to find my own path to a booze-free life that I love.
