Mary P. Ozanic Describes Being a Gutter Drunk and Discussions of The Bottom

Brett Lovins

Mary has described herself as a "gutter drunk" on many occasions in the meeting that we attend together. I asked her if she'd be willing to explore what that means and how bad it got for her during her active addiction. Along the way we also discuss "the bottom" as a concept as well several other things.

Please also be aware that the topic of suicide does come up in this conversation.

We also discuss the Jellinek Curve.
