          Man Who Quit Drinking: ‘Achieving Sobriety Was The Easy Part’


          August 31, 2017

          Linda, an admitted alcoholic, says she used to drink nine 24-ounce beers easily. The mom of three says she used to drive with her kids in the car and at times, chose beer over her children.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have family drama that needs that help?

          Her daughters turned Dr. Phil for help, saying that their mother’s drinking was destroying their family. When the family appeared on Dr. Phil, Linda’s husband, Scott, admitted that he, too, struggled with alcohol.

          Two years later, the couple, who are now sober, share how their relationship – and their relationships with their daughters – has changed.

          “Stopping wasn’t that hard,” Linda shares with Dr. Phil.

          Scott adds, “Achieving sobriety was the easy part … Our house was on fire. Now the house is put out, but now we’ve got to rebuild it.”

          Watch more of their story in the video above, including what Dr. Phil told them during their first appearance that inspired them to make a change. And, hear from their daughters and how they say their family has changed.
