Margaret shares her story as part of her double celebration: 50 years old and 1000 days sober!
As a kid who felt awkward but just wanted to fit in and be liked, Margaret lost herself into the expectations of others, choosing a career she wasn't passionate about and allowing her own wishes to fade into the background in an effort to stay agreeable. When she discovered wine, it seemed like a solution to her discomfort. As her pattern with alcohol became problematic, she had to overhaul her thinking completely.
