Kerrie had a pretty tough start to life, losing her mum at two years old, being fostered out for a while and then having to contend with an abusive step-mother. Her dad was an alcoholic as well and her siblings all developed drug, alcohol and mental disorders. Kerrie started drinking at 15 but it was the arrival of her first child at 24 that set her on a path of excessive drinking. Fifteen years later she turned to Alcoholics Anonymous for support, but was not really interested is stopping drinking. Eventually, after a six-month stint in rehab Kerrie had more time sober than ever before and decided that she wanted to keep it that way. She’d found recovery in Alcoholics Anonymous and has been sober in AA for over 9 months now.
