“Drunk Mom is an imperfect account of the events that occurred from 2009 to 2010 when I relapsed after three and a half years of sobriety,” says Jowita Bydlowska. While many might attempt to hide the binge drinking and blackouts, the chaos and confusion of alcoholism, Bydlowska bares it all in her controversial memoir. “This has been a painful story to tell. I wrote it ... because I hope it will help those who are struggling with similar issues, and give others a glimpse into what that struggle is like.” Meet a brutally honest author and mother who has met the glares of those who don’t understand and the criticism of those who say she’s bared too much.
