My mom is an addict.

And not like, “drank too much at the family Christmas party” or “popped an extra Vicodin when she pulled out her back” type addict.

More like…

  • Every cupboard in our house was FULL of boxed wine.
  • We had packages with HUNDREDS of pills getting delivered every month.
  • Meth dealers and strange people CONSTANTLY knocking on the door.
