Mommy Doesn’t Drink Here Anymore


Getting Through the First Year of Sobriety
Author: Rachael Brownell

Part recovery, part self-help, and all real, raw stories of waking up for the sake of your self and your children, Mommy Doesn’t Drink Here Anymore   follows one mother’s journey from cocktail mama to sober mama.   The loving mother of twins and a newborn, Brownell used alcohol to maintain a sense of her adult self and be more than “just mommy.”   It didn’t take long before her drinking spiraled out of control, consuming her life and marriage, and she realized that she needed serious help.

Both heart-wrenching and inspiring, this is Brownell’s true-life story which provides hope and motivation to get into a program and balance your life as a mother and a recovering alcoholic.

The good, the bad, and the ugly of getting clean.  Through examples of community, wisdom, and support, this book provides a map for anyone trying to get through the early stages of recovery.

Inspiration for the first year of recovery.   Learn how a couple of glasses of wine lead to a big problem.   Understand how mommy cocktail groups and the desire to feel like “more than a mommy” can lead to addiction.

In Mommy Doesn’t Drink Here Anymore  you will find:

  • The good, the bad, and the ugly of parenting
  • The truth about the first year of recovery
  • Hope for a light at the end of the tunnel

Mommy Doesn’t Drink Here Anymore is one woman’s recollection of the pressures of motherhood, addiction, and the first year of sobriety. Without preaching, Brownell lets you into her heart-wrenching and inspiring story.
