ABC reporter admits on TV to alcoholism

– ABC News reporter Elizabeth Vargas has publicly acknowledged that she’s an alcoholic, and said it took her years to admit it.

In an interview aired Friday on “Good Morning America,” Vargas said hiding her problem from others was exhausting.

“Even to admit it to myself was admitting, I thought, that I was a failure,” Vargas said.

She tried to bargain with herself.

“I started thinking, ‘Well, you know, I’ll only drink, you know, on weekends,’ ” she recalled. “ ‘I’ll only drink, you know, two glasses of wine a night. I won’t drink on nights before I have to get up and do “Good Morning America.” ’ But those deals never work.”

Last fall, Vargas spent several weeks in a treatment facility and is now in Alcoholics Anonymous.
