About the Author

Michelle Smith is the founder of Recovery is the New Black, a digital community for women living or exploring an alcohol-free life. Since getting sober in 2016, she has been encouraging women to break free from the “mommy juice” culture and live a life they do not want to escape. Her sobriety support—integrating both her personal experience in recovery and professional experience as a mental health and addiction advocate—has been featured on The Today Show, Scary Mommy, TEDx, and Washington Post. Michelle lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and two children.
