          Woman Describes Event She Says Led Her To Become An Alcoholic


          May 5, 2017

          Aundrea admits that she is an alcoholic and a liar. She says she has been drinking for the last nine years, after she realized it made her feel better when she was upset.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: At your final breaking point?

          “I had an argument with my husband one night, and he laughed at me, and rolled over and went to sleep,” Aundrea recalls. “I still was just so upset, so I thought, you know what? A rum and coke would be really good right now. I think I’ll do that.”

          “So you got up and went and medicated yourself, essentially,” Dr. Phil says.

          “I didn’t know that’s what I was doing. I just thought, oh boy. This is great. Why didn’t I do this sooner,” Aundrea continues.
