How Do You Tell Your Family You're an Addict?

By Jane Velez-Mitchell 11/21/12

Fix video columnist Jane Velez-Mitchell says take care of yourself first and be "a living example of sobriety."

Reader's Question: How did you feel admitting you were an alcoholic to your parents/family? Personally, I find this to be the scariest part of "coming out" in regards to my alcoholism and have yet to do so. There would be so much embarrassment and shame on my part, as well as the difficulty socializing with them when drinking is such a key component during family gatherings.
