In this episode, we will have women on the show talking about how the stigma of alcoholism impacted their ability to reach out for help and get sober.

We all know what the stigma is: the homeless man in a door stoop with a bottle in a paper bag, or the woman who can't hold down a job or take care of her children are just a few examples of what we picture in our head when we hear the word "alcoholic".

The reality is that the stigma is one of the biggest roadblocks to getting sober (denial being the other one) and it isn't true 99% of the time. One in ten people in the USA suffer from this disease, and many (if not most) are high functioning: holding down jobs, raising children, being productive members of society.
