Janet’s drinking habits started casually enough – the “typical” college experience and the leisurely glass of wine with her husband, but as she says, all of that changed very fast. Her casual glass of wine became multiple glasses throughout the day and into the night. Her habit led to big fights with her husband and big concerns for and from her family.

This was all happening while Janet worked at a church and she struggled to reconcile her faith with her life choices. As she shares during the program, her father said, “Alcohol has become your god,” and it was an act of love from her father that ultimately led her to seek treatment.

After a relapse, Janet fully surrendered to God and has now been sober 18 months! Janet opens up about the importance of a strong support system and how she found her way to sobriety. Her husband, Patrick, also shares briefly how Janet’s addiction impacted him.
