Very well written, but my goodness is this pretentious and myopic. It sounds like you had an alcohol problem, and it is admirable that you were able to get yourself to a healthier place, but I have a real issue with the message of this essay. I can’t argue with your personal journey, but passing judgement from the side of the pool is not a win for women. You’re getting in line behind the men, the media and everyone else preaching what a woman should be and shouldn’t be, should do and shouldn’t do.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
