          How Traumatic Events From A Woman’s Past May Be Contributing To Her Severe Alcoholism


          November 6, 2018

          Amanda was once a fashion model who traveled the world and graced the covers of top fashion magazines. But now, after a series of traumatic events, the 31-year-old admits she’s a severe alcoholic who has died twice and has a pacemaker to keep her alive. She says she realizes she may not live very long if she doesn’t quit drinking.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          Amanda’s sister, Kari, and her mother, Michele, say they fear Amanda will die, and so they turned to Dr. Phil for help.

          In the video above, Dr. Phil reviews some of the traumatic events that Amanda has experienced since she was 12 years old and how they may have contributed to her desire to drink. Why do Kari and Michele say they don’t think Amanda has been completely honest?
