Queen of #SobrietySecrets
Tami Harper Winn is currently a featured blogger on Drunkless.com. Her recovery and her writing are a true labor of love and have been showcased @recoveryrockstars and the September Edition of #LivesUnfiltered @ www.markgoodson.com, as well as regularly @sobergridapp. She was given serious consideration for Hippocampus Magazine's Annual Themed Edition “Firsts,” where she made the Short List. Her powerful story has been shared with hundreds during various speaking engagements. Tami works an imperfect 12-Step Recovery Program with the help of a very huge Higher Power. With over six years of sobriety, she openly breaks her anonymity on a daily basis to help others who suffer from the seemingly hopeless disease of alcoholism and addiction. Tami was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada where she received her Masters in Partying. She completed her Doctorate in Alcoholism on 05/20/2010 by getting sober in Boise, Idaho where she now resides. It is there that she attended and graduated from Boise State University, joining the ranks of Alumni. Her passion is writing but anyone who knows her, knows that her three children are her first love. She is the proud Mema to five and a soon-to-be empty nester/world traveler. Her long list of experience includes: Marketing Director, Managing Consultant, Editor, Public Relations Manager, Peer Recovery Coach, and overall Miracle Worker. Tami’s first book is currently in the works.

Staring me in the eye is the glass ballerina ornament my daughter hung with such love only weeks before she was to leave. “What do you want from me", I asked the silly thing. Tear streaks staining my cheeks, “I wasn’t ready to say goodbye”.
I am in recovery, and if I don't get a handle on this, I may very well find myself grieving over the loss of my sobriety. So, I'm going back to basics. I'm going back to The ABC's and 123's of Grief in Sobriety.
“The only problem I have is that you are still breathing" ...To say he hated me was an understatement.
Many of you will be feeling the sting of the holiday season as you read this.
Before the turn I can clearly see my street lined with police officers, paramedic crews, and news reporters – most of them centered around my home.
