Synopsis: In this candid story of survival, famed author Laura Martella exposes her lifetime battle of alcoholism that stems back to her humble beginnings in Georgia. After nearly a decade of walking in and out of rehab facilities, Laura struggled to stick to a path that would set her life straight. It was when she finally checked herself into a “No Excuse” facility for 9 months that she finally found her calling to hold herself accountable. Laura recaps her inspiring journey from the ground up, and how a pedigree of Pomeranians played a huge part in giving her life a new found purpose.
