Imagine that most of the people who know you, also know that you’re in recovery and that you never drink alcohol or do drugs.

When writer and editor, Emily McCombs hit a low point in her life she thought that she couldn’t possibly feel any worse if she drank, so she did.

But what would you do if six months after that first drink, you were using cocaine daily and facing financial devastation? Would you try harder to conceal your unmanageable life from the world? Or would you find the humility that it takes to come back after a relapse?
