Supreme Court Justice Terry Forrest said it was time for the mother to pick herself up for the sake of her remaining two children.
McLaughlin’s life became unhinged and she turned to ice when she lost her five-year-old son, Zane, in a boat accident in April 2008.
She cradled her son's lifeless body in her arms until he died after the family's boat collided with another vessel in the Patterson River, southeast of Melbourne.
McLaughlin, a successful pharmaceutical executive before the incident, suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and a major depressive illness.
She lost her job, left her husband and in 2011 started dating Mr Stevens - entering into a volatile relationship that was defined by their mutual drug use.
