"I’ve never judged a year based on things I knew about it. I’ve never blamed a year for doing anything to me, never acted as if a year was out to get me personally. It’s 12 months on the calendar. I control what I can. I remain present. I treat those around me with love, kindness, and respect. I work for change where I think it’s needed. I respect differences – personal, political, cultural. I aspire to be the best possible version of myself and help others do the same. I live. I am not perfect."

"To those who think achieving a weekly, or more frequent, blackout is the only way to manage the burden college has placed on their shoulders, let me be clear: You will not survive adulthood. I take that back. You’ll probably survive. But, you will not thrive. High functioning alcoholics can only keep their crap in order for so long before it all comes crashing down. And, this blackout behavior gorgeously foreshadows full-blown addiction."

I hold back. All the time. I get caught between what feels like two identities – the alcoholic in recovery and the business owning married mom of two. I feel like I don’t share enough of my everyday life with those who follow my recovery story, and I feel like I don’t share enough of my recovery story with those plugged into my everyday life.

Sometimes I recall blackouts from my drinking days – now years after they happened – and still can’t piece together all the details. For the most part, I’ve come to terms with the fact I have pockets of memories I will never recover, and I am pretty good at not dwelling on them. That is, until something tugs open the drawers of my mental archive and starts rifling through the files.

It's all about the glass. Laura Ward and NBC CT's Kerri-Lee Mayland talk summer mocktails.

For some dumb reason, I took my mug into the bathroom off the kitchen. I set it on the side of the sink and tried to remember why I even went into the bathroom to begin with … something from the pantry, perhaps? Crash. The mug slipped into the sink and shattered. Coffee and ceramic everywhere.

We are a nation content with feeding alcoholism while starving alcoholics. It’s our culture.

This morning I did my very first Quit Wining television interview - watch as I talk with NBC CT's Kerri-Lee Mayland about about alcohol awareness how I'm "recovering out loud" and helping others through my blog.
