Women and alcoholism


At 16, I was already an alcoholic in full swing. It took me a while to realize that I had a drinking problem. I come from a country that made it easy and acceptable to drink at almost any age. Until blackouts became a constant in my life and I could not remember what had happened the night before. When I was 22, after what seemed like a seizure, a doctor told me my liver was severely damaged and that it may be irreversible.
