Jessica Landon was a successful Hollywood actress living a charmed & glamorous life, but it all fell apart when she spiraled into full-blown alcoholism at age 26 which led to jail, then living on the streets, weighing just 78 pounds. She lost it all, but somehow, after 9 trips to rehab, she found the will to leave alcohol behind and build a life she didn't need to escape from.
She now lives in Los Angeles with her fiancee and beautiful baby boy, and is an advocate and coach for moms in recovery.
Jess shares her powerful story with raw honesty, including the role that laughter, gratitude, and connection played in her own recovery.
Jessica and I discuss gray-area drinking, the sober curious movement, mommy wine culture, and the critical importance of community and connection for women when it comes to healing and recovery.
