Welcome!

If you are in search of hope, inspiration or just a sense of belonging—look no further.

I’m Tiffany Jenkins and most of you know me from my silly viral videos, but there is another side to me. I have anxiety, depression, and was an active drug addict for over ten years.

I found that sharing my truth was not only therapeutic for me, but many others as well.  This is a place where people just like you and I are sharing their stories of hope after a period of adversity.

So grab some coffee, kick back, and prepare to see addiction, motherhood, marriage and mental health—like you’ve never seen it before.

  1. Hi my name is Erin and I just started following you on Facebook. I have to say you are an amazing woman! I love the recovery stories and how you also talk about your personal struggle as well. I too have had my own stuggle and will be five years sober this September. Thank you for everything you talk about and do, I never thought I would find a place on Facebook that I actually like. Your are great and I’m so happy I found your Facebook page.

  3. I came across your fabfitfun unboxing video yesterday and for the first time EVER I was like OMG that’s me making a video. 😂😂 You are hilarious and REAL. I woke up this morning and another post was on my timeline and I had to go to your page to see what all you posted. When I seen you were a recovering addict I felt like I knew you more without ever meeting you. I am a recovering addict as well. I celebrated 10 years in February and I love nothing more to see recovering friends excelling and making it through this crazy thing we call life. So now I’m a fan. I followed all of your pages (social media sites) and I can’t wait to see more of all of your posts. Thank you for being a piece of hope for those who still suffer. Keep doing what you are doing girl!!! Thanks for bringing some laughter to my life and reminding me it’s ok to be me (even if I’m a little crazy 😜).

  4. Tiffany: About 2 days ago I shared your “Something is stuck in my kids nose!” video on Facebook. After watching and sharing I started watching your other videos and discovered your story. I am 1,000% convinced that I was supposed to find you. Because as of today, I am 4 days sober. Im a solid (& now recovering). I, like many others bought into the whole…”Mommy’s special juice/Wine O Clock/Baby on the hips, wine on the lips” mentality. Because it’s just wine right? It’s classy! Lol. I’ve tried multiple times to stop drinking, get sober & stay that way, and have always failed. But for some reason this time feels different. It’s something I’ve wanted for so long, and now that I see as a mom, I’m not alone…it inspires me. I can do this and I know this blog will help me get there. I can’t say thank you enough for sharing your story. You’re helping more people than you will probably ever know.

  5. I have just found your blog and youtube videos because someone reposted your conturing video (btw, freakin hilarious!!) on buzzfeed video and I’m in!! You had me within 3 videos. I’m also a recovering addict, 6 years now. I’m a Mississippi stay-at-home mom of 2 and you are most definitely a welcome addition to my day! Thank you for keeping it real and bringing on the snort giggles.
    Much love from another Southern Mama!!

  7. Hey tiff!! I started following your story about a month ago and your truly amazing!!!! A year clean on March 3rd. Having my daughter saved my life. I was an IV meth user and life is so much more amazing now that I can be a mom to my 3 year old son (he lives with his dad) and my baby girl. When I lost my son I thought life would never get better so my addiction got more and more put of control. I met an amazing man and he helped me get clean and I got pregnant with my baby girl [I named her journee]. I sincerely look up to you and love your videos! Keep up your hard work girl! Your amazing! *Randi*

  14. Thank you so much for the video on enabling. It helped me So much. I watched it 20 times and learned so much from it. I also love your video on anxiety. That is so how it is in our head for those of us who suffer from anxiety. The reason people relate to you so much is because you keep things real. Your kids are awesome.

  17. I ordered your book off Amazon. I am floored! I read 3/4 of the book in one night.

    It reminded me so much of my story. (3 years, 7 months clean) I wasn’t dating a deputy no, but you jail time, detox for sure been there (I had seizures I don’t remember) your treatment time, so similar.

    My relapses in the past had began much the same way. It sent my head reeling with memories. Ones I never should let slip to the back of my mind.

    Everyone has their own story, but somehow we can usually find about of ourselves in each others tales.

    Thank you so much for sharing that incredible story with me! With other addicts, it’s so important we all know we’re not alone. Recovery is the scariest thing most of us have ever done. Scarier than jail, using a needle, exchanging “adult stuff”, all those things that any average person would think were SO scary. That was just another day in the life of: any One of us.

    Scary is the recovery, the FEELINGS. Life on lifes terms. Quite frankly life can be a bitch sometimes. I never understood ‘roll with the punches’ until I got into recovery.I thought all that time I was out using I had been, but all of that was my own doing. Problem after problem, I dug the hope deeper, blaming someone, anyone, even life. Never myself.

    You’re truly an inspiration please continue saving lives, simply by sharing yours!

  19. Wow is all I have to say. Tiffany you are amazing. I was first drawn to you due to the hilarious videos you post on FB. As a mom I just appreciate the real perspective and sense of humor. The day I saw your videos was the day I realized that it’s ok that I’ve looked into selling my daughter on eBay. Like not
    really but kinda, seriously, not seriously thought about it. You know? Just one of those “I love you but I really don’t have to like you right now” moments.

    I joined the blog to see more videos about motherhood. That’s when I realized you were in recovery. I’m reading your book with tears in my eyes because so much of your story I identify with. I was Jekyl and Hyde. I hid my addiction for so long, hating myself for every manipulation and justifying every lie.
    I don’t feel comfortable putting my real name on here because I live in a small town. I’m blessed everyday and have come so far. I graduate nursing school this summer and have come so far. I just wanted to say thank you.

  20. I just received your book from Amazon and I can’t WAIT to start on it (if I could ever get my children to nap!). My family and I recently discovered that my sister was using heroin. Two stints in rehab over the past 6 months and she is just over two moths sober as of today. Your blog has helped me so much, and I can’t thank you enough for all of the good you are doing in this world. Whatever roads you have traveled in the past have led you here. This is truly your purpose!! There is no such thing as a lost cause, and you are the living proof of that.
