Ask the Contributors: What Do People Say When You’re Open about Recovery?


Melissa PetroWelcome to Ask the Contributors, our video column featuring Q&As with some of most our esteemed writers. We’ve created this not only because we believe in out-and-proud recovery but also because we think you should see the people whose work you’ve been reading and hear why they decided to become so out-and-proud.

Today we’re talking to Melissa Petro, who has written for New York, The Guardian, The Daily Beast, Salon, HuffPo, Jezebel, xoJane and The Fix, among others. Today she talks about how others have reacted to her policy of radical honesty in sobriety.
