After experiencing her first alcohol buzz at the age of seven, Peggy’s drinking career spanned more than 40 years and included failed marriages, homelessness, and nearly losing her daughter. In today’s heartfelt and emotional episode, Annie Grace talks with Peggy and her daughter, Jessi, about how Peggy finally found freedom from alcohol, the effects of her new lifestyle on the family dynamic, big alcohol’s efforts to keep us drinking, Jessi’s battle with food and her current coaching work, and Peggy’s commitment to release shame and guilt.
