Brittany – whose bio is “My MESS Became My MESSAGE” – has made it her business to talk about recovery and addiction in her popular TikTok videos.
After years of struggling with her sobriety and even temporarily losing custody of her three children, Brittany sobered on February 9, 2020.
Since then, she has inspired her 1.7 million followers on TikTok to speak openly and honestly about addiction, recovery, and sobriety – all with love, self-care, kindness, and a good sense of humor.
In one of her most viral videos, Brittany captures the fear her children carry and the unique needs they have.
“They need confirmation, confirmation, structure, but mostly they need you to stay sober,” Brittany writes in her caption.
For those wondering what their kids think of making such emotionally packed videos, Brittany explains in the comments, “We’re filming out of context. You definitely don’t know the full story of what we are filming. I always show mine [oldest] Daughter my videos afterwards, and it was helpful for us to communicate about that time in our lives. “
