Jackie Elliott loves her wine. It makes her feel confident, relaxed and sophisticated. Drinking wine is normal. Drinking wine is fun.

But Jackie’s “Drunken Magical Thinking” is propelling her towards disaster. After surviving the disintegration of several relationships, her drinking becomes more than an bad habit.
