Heather recalls her first experience with alcohol and shares the effects of her experimentation.

My name is Heather and I’d like to share my story of addiction with alcohol and other things.

I believe I was born with the problem of addiction. I believe that it’s always been there and the first time I took a drink I remember being between 10 and 12 years old and I got so drunk that honestly, I don’t remember most of it.

I remember laying down that night. I don’t remember what I did. I know I was acting a fool because what people had told me and I thought that was okay because I was young. It was the first time I had ever drank and that’s what drunk people did, but that’s not what drunk people do, that’s what alcoholics do and I know that now.
