Lisa Smith is a writer and a lawyer based in NYC. Girl Walks Out of a Bar (released today!) is her story of addiction and recovery. Prior to beginning her more than 15-year legal marketing career, Lisa practiced corporate finance law at a leading international law firm.
We talk to Lisa about what it's like leading a double life as a successful, career-driven woman who was secretly relying on coke and alcohol for years to get her through, her friendships, meeting her husband and how she approached the, "Hey, I don't drink" conversation, and navigating the legal profession sober.
More about Lisa and her writing can be found on her website.
