SGR Ep95 - The Sober Señorita W/ Kelly Fitzgerald

 SGR Ep95 - The Sober Señorita W/ Kelly Fitzgerald

Kelly Fitzgerald always felt as if everyone had directions on how to live life, but she never got the manual.

She established her drinking career in college and became the life of the party. Her binge drinking and blackouts became a normal occurrence, but she was in deep denial about just how bad her alcoholism was.

After enjoying Spring Break in Cancun, she decided to move there so the party would never end. But Kelly began to wake up in strange places and did not remember what happened to her. She tried to control her drinking, but couldn't. Finally, after yet another of many failed relationships, Kelly calls her mom and tells her she is ready for help.

Now the Sober Senorita is a popular recovery blogger and wants to share her story so that other college students know there is another way. She is running the 6K marathon for Heroes in Recovery and says sobriety has allowed her to show up for all the people in her life.
