ABC news anchor anchor Elizabeth Vargas is coming clean about her addiction to alcohol in a new memoir BETWEEN BREATHS: A Memoir of Panic and Addiction.


She talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about how she dealt with her addiction and much more.

“I suffered with anxiety and panic attacks all my life. Like millions of women in this country I tried to self medicate with alcohol. It worked for 25 years. I found myself addicted to alcohol. I wrote this book for those women,” Vargas said.
