  1. I’ve never been an addict but I can totally relate to Tiffany on other levels. I suffer from anxiety and depression & I have 4 beautiful boys. Tiffany shows REAL LIFE- not being able to pee without kids interrupting. She is such a great person and I’m so thankful I found her Vlog and FB Page (Juggling the Jenkins)

  2. Look at you go friend!!! I'm so very honored to know you. There are 23 million in recovery in the U.S and you make an extra effort to helping that number grow. We love You Tiff-Chrissy

  3. Go Tiffany!! She's fricking amazing! ? She helps so many people in so many walks of life. Everything from addiction to anxiety to depression. ? This woman rocks! I truly love her and couldn't be more proud to follow her.

  4. Tiffanys book and fb group are a big part of why I am currently getting clean! The day I finished the book I decided that was my last day using. Today is 55 days clean for me! thank you Tiffany Jenkins!! ♥

  5. Try having a Severely handicapped child, let's see So Called "Super Mom" handle that one !!! She couldn't walk a day in my shoes !!!!

  6. In reference to this post and the other more recent posts. There isn't a mom in existence that has it all together. If any mom says they do it's because they are paying people to do it for them. None of us have it all together. None of us are perfect. We are perfectly imperfect.

  7. When I see someone on The Doctor's that I "knew(of)" I feel totally relevant….and feel that I watch too much YouTube

  8. Watching Tiffany inspired me to become a sober Mum and gives me the drive when I need just by watching her videos.
    Sober since 28/06/18

  9. I don't know how to get off the pain killers. Doc just keeps lowering my dose but I can't control that I go get more from others to make sure I don't run out. It's too hard to come down by yourself. Im ready to quit, But how???

  10. No rehab where I live. Small town, 750 ppl. Can't even have pizza delivery. Too many ppl are all depressed in my neighborhood.

  11. Reach out for help, but where, how. You would be surprised at how….. some ppl really can't get help.

  12. Felony convicted drug attic is no roll model. Once you’re an attic always an attic for life. No one told you to Steel and use in the first place!
