Tracey says that coming to terms with her DUI was similar to how she's come to terms with her eating disorder. "The correlation with the anorexia for me was that I've always been the person who's the people-pleaser, the person who tries to make everybody else happy. I've come a long way and I've done a lot of work on myself, and I'm really proud of myself about that. But it's still a part of who I am."

Tracey explains why this happened in the first place. "I went against my instincts and my gut because I wanted to take care of the situation. And I didn't want to cause a scene and I didn't want to just be, like, 'I'm not going to do this. That's not going to happen.' I compromised what I believe because I wanted to take care of my husband, I wanted to get us out of that situation, and I wanted to help at that point."
