Show Notes

From a large Italian-Polish Chicago Southside family, Niki grew up surrounded with love . . . and eventually the love of drinking. But as it goes, the disease progressed into misery. Two years into sobriety, Niki is happy, joyous and free—present and available for her family and friends. 

“I didn’t want to stop drinking because it silenced my mind, but I didn’t want to keep drinking, because I knew it was hurting me . . . I wanted to want to stop drinking.”

"Things don’t happen to you, they happen around you.”
