Laurie Dhue and Elizabeth Vargas both very beautiful women and the last people you would suspect of being alcoholics. But that's our fault or maybe the fault of Hollywood of stereotyping what an alcoholic looks like.
On Feb. 5, 2014 I will celebrate 20 years sober. Trust me, alcoholics come in all flavors. I've attended meetings with entertainment figures, doctors, lawyers, teachers, police, business owners, priests, rich and poor.
Consider yourself fortunate if nobody in your families has had a problem. My sister-in-law, from a very well to do family, lost a brother and sister-cut down way too young. She was instrumental in getting me help.
Most alcoholics get plenty of help, but never surrender to the truth--they can never drink or drug safely.
