From the moment she uttered the brave and honest words, "I
am an alcoholic," to interviewer George Stephanopoulos,
Elizabeth Vargas began writing her story, as her experiences
were still raw. Now, in BETWEEN BREATHS, Vargas discusses
her accounts of growing up with anxiety-which began suddenly
at the age of six when her father served in Vietnam-and how
she dealt with this anxiety as she came of age, to her
eventually turning to alcohol for relief. She tells of how
she found herself living in denial, about the extent of her
addiction and keeping her dependency a secret for so long.
She addresses her time in rehab, her first year of sobriety,
and the guilt she felt as a working mother who had never
found the right balance.
Honest and hopeful, BETWEEN BREATHS is an inspiring read.
