A local woman has gone from being a heavy drinker to encouraging addicts to get help by way of her writing.

Just three years ago Jennifer Triske's life was out of control and nearly ended. She was drinking a liter of vodka per day and doctors said her liver was starting to fail. The drinking started in college, and soon she used it as a way to cope with anxiety. She says she hit rock bottom after wrecking her car and now attends weekly Celebrate Recovery meetings at Hope Church, and blogs about her recovery in hopes of helping others with similar stories. Triske's blog can be found online at ourcrossroads.com.
