Risky Drinking Premiere

From time to time you've read about my collaboration with HBO for their documentary film on alcoholism.

This film challenges viewers to recognize and evaluate their own risky drinking behaviors. The film follows four case studies who are in a broad spectrum of risky drinking stages. Addiction experts explain the science behind the alcohol abuse disorder and provide statistics about its prevalence and hazards.

Thank you for sharing this information! Is it crazy that I'm looking forward to it? Its such a huge public problem but it remains still a secret hell for those of us in the throws of it. I think the more public awareness and education- the better. Thank you Linda! ❤️

Congratulations Linda! I know you've been waiting for this to happen. I would love to see it, but I don't have HBO. Is there any other way for me to watch?
