ABC News reporter Elizabeth Vargas has publicly acknowledged that shes 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, said Vargas, who noted that she had reported several 20/20 specials on drinking yet couldnt acknowledge her own alcohol dependency.

If I had to work for ABC, I suspect I’d be driven to alcoholism too.
She must have a shred of a conscience. Lying all the time probably drove her to the bottle.
Okay Lizzie, we all know now. Go take care of it.
ooh! good one!
I’m glad she is getting help for her problem but I hope she doesn’t continue to use her recovery as fodder for news stories.
What’s the big deal - wasn’t she “born that way”. Who are we to judge.....
What about Bill??? He'd have to be an alcoholic to be married to that.
“Nose like a vacuum cleaner.”
Welp, guess she is now eligible for disability, she can ask my x-wife how to apply.
Wasn’t there a made-for-tv-movie about Jessica Savitch being a coke-head?
I wonder about Diane Sawyer and how sober she is sometimes.
Maybe having to constantly LIE about the true nature of the country drives some talking heads to self-medicate.
Saw ‘Wolf of Wall Street’, and I’m convinced that at a certain level drugs and alcohol are the price of admission. The more you do, the more chances you take, and if your luck is good, you do well enough to be able to sustain your luck, through whatever means are available to you - illicit or otherwise.
What I want to hear from lamestream network reporters is: I’m a Communist.
I don’t know anything about her reporting “proclivities,” but I say God bless her, she’s taken Step One.
She can drink with me anytime she wants,,, just leave the boots on . .
What’s the big news?I thought ALL msm reporters were alcoholics.
Her being candid about it, I suppose.
Admitting this to yourself is the first step towards becoming a SUCCESS.
A Fellow 12-Stepper.
To be a Commie lib working for the All Barack Channel of course one would have to be boozed up
The first step is the foundation that supports the other 11.
Wish her success in her battle agaist that which is cunning, baffling, powerful.
So quit drinking and get on with your life. It’s not that big a deal.
So quit drinking and get on with your life. Its not that big a deal.
What are you? Maybe 18 or 20 years old?
Like you have an effing clue.
And if you actually are an adult, you might want to learn the difference between between a drunk in college and an alcoholic.
You’ve certainly set the bar for this thread. Really, really low.
