Leah Messer has been working on her life for the past couple of months, as she was tired of being stuck in the same old routine. Leah had struggled with depression and anxiety and her problems were shared on Teen Mom. But something clicked for her and she decided to pursue professional help. Despite a few hurdles along the way, Messer managed to finish her treatment while getting the support of both of her ex-husbands.
For a while, Leah thought that Corey was pursuing custody of their twin girls while she was getting treatment, but she has been able to fight back and they now share custody of the girls as Leah is continuing to work on herself. And this week, Messer took another big step in her recovery, as she decided to kick one ugly habit to the curb.

“Good for you! I had to quit a year ago when I suffered a brain injury. I used equate nicotine gum and it worked wonders! My aunt was also a heavy smoker for 30+ years, quit 5 years ago and the gum was the only thing that ever helped her! Good luck to you, you can do it :)” another person wrote, encouraging her to try different methods of quitting and support in case she feels like she can’t quite drop the habit.

“I love how transparent you’ve become for the sake of helping others through your struggles. You have come so far and those babies are blessed to have you! I hope Corey and Miranda have eased up and that y’all are all happy and comfortable with the situation. Not sure where you’re at with Jeremy and the new girl but one step at a time,” one person wrote to Leah Messer, sharing that it is awesome how Leah is now so open about everything she’s doing to get her life back on track.
When Messer wasn’t as active on social media, it was easy for people to assume that she was hiding something. On Teen Mom, Leah was seen taking pills, dozing off, and not being very attentive. But now, Messer is being open and honest about everything, which is making it difficult for the haters to be critical of her progress.
What do you think about Leah Messer dropping the smokes? Do you think she’s doing the right thing for her children?
