We are diving into Mommy Juice (aka wine) culture; from knowing when you are taking it too far to ways you can put yourself in check to defining what a healthy relationship with alcohol for YOU is. Joining me for this conversation is my friend, Michelle Smith. Her story is POWERFUL, and I know you will feel loved (not ashamed) as you listen to her share. Mama's, I see you. You are doing better than you think.  Michelle Smith is a bestselling author, keynote speaker, and the founder of Recovery is the New Black, a digital community for women living or exploring an alcohol-free life. Michelle struggled for years with alcohol addiction that looked like “overdoing it.” In reality, she was drinking to escape the stresses of life---and the “mommy juice” drinking culture was helping her self-destruct. Since getting sober in 2016, she integrates both her personal experience in recovery and professional experience as a mental health and addiction advocate toward normalizing sobriety in our boozy culture.    In this episode Allie + Michelle discuss:  ⚾ Plastic vs fragile balls that moms juggle and how to decide what to hold onto and what to let go of 🍷 When alcohol moves from being something you enjoy to something you use as a coping mechanism 🤩 How to handle being sober in a society that normalizes drinking + social drinking  💛 What a healthy relationship with alcohol looks like  Connect with Michelle: Website Instagram @recoveryisthenewblack Grab her Book! Living Sober, Living Free: A Guided Journal for Women Who Want to Stop Drinking.
