Jolene gives a glimpse of what her drinking looked like in the beginning. She didn’t grow up around a lot of drinking and rarely drank in high school or college, but there was a pivotal point in her late 20’s when things changed. She began using wine to self-medicate the heartbreak of a lost relationship. Jolene talks about how her drinking continued and escalated into her 30’s and how she began hiding her hangovers more than her drinking. Even though Jolene was never a big volume drinker, her frequent drinking was becoming a problem. She shares how she started to weigh the cost/benefit of drinking and ultimately decided that drinking wasn’t working for her anymore.
