Reviews for My name is Claire, and I am an alcoholic

This was wonderful and so beautifully written. There were two sentences that really, really struck me:

"She had always known she couldn't control her husband, but what she didn't understand was why she couldn't control herself."

"It wasn't getting in the way of Hot Flash or anything - not yet - but the alcohol felt like a crutch, and she hated feeling weak."

In those two sentences, I truly felt the essence of Claire Meade. I am so hoping that you'll consider writing more. :)

i read this on tumblr too! i think it's an awesome story and i think there arent enough mrs meade stories out there! she's under appreciated and anyone would kill to have her as a mom, when she's sober.

Really bold. I guess since I was married to an alcoholic for 18 years, (and certainly never loved him less simply because he was one), I always really loved Claire even more because she tried to deal with her drinking and was so open and authentic because of it. She was wonderfully flawed. Judith ROCKED that role!
