  1. Thank you for this amazing Blog site.
    For any woman wondering, “Am I drinking too much?” and feeling that the label “alcoholic” doesn’t quite fit, my forthcoming book inspires and guides women to find an answer to this question while offering tips and strategies to drink moderately, or quit altogether.
    Excerpts from the book can be found on http://www.marlaobrien.com

    1. Hi Marla, it was great to get your feedback. Drinking more than is healthy can be challenging for some and becoming an alcoholic certainly is a progressive disease. If you ever would like to guest blog for us about your experiences or perspectives we would welcome you. Thanks, Kim
