          Living on the Edge

          March 22, 2006

          Lisa was living the American dream: a beautiful home, a great job, many friends and a loving husband. Now her life is a nightmare of addiction, prostitution and despair.

           

           

          “My Drinking is Killing Me”

          An alcoholic for 10 years, Lisa needs at least nine beers just to stop her tremors. She’s one step away from being homeless and trades sexual favors for alcohol just to get through the day.

           

          “I have no hope, and I have no future.”

            


            

          Loving Alcohol More Than Herself

          Lisa has had some traumatic experiences in her life, including being abducted and raped when she was 16. She has a tumultuous relationship with her mother, Lynn, and partially blames her for her alcoholism.

           

          “My mother, may she rot in hell.”

            


            

          Drunk and In Denial

          A former prostitute and adult film actress has a message for Lisa. Plus, Dr. Phil makes Lisa an offer she can’t refuse.

           

           


          But is Lisa ready?
