Thank you Jamie! Thank you Annie! Jamie"s story was the missing link for me to feel part of "TNM" community. while I am eternally grateful for TNM & have thus far have been successfully AF, I felt like my story was to different from the other people in the community to really participate. I don't feel like maybe I'm in the wrong place anymore! #nopinkcloud. #highfunctioningwhiledrinking&depressed

Please stop confusing alcohol as a CNS depressant with depression as a common mental illness. It's like saying it's a depressant so it presses down on a button.

This loon really undermines your message Annie. I'd love to hear what your truly knowledgeable guests say about this silly woo. She has no expertise at all and almost everything she says factually is wrong.
