Suzanne was drinking heavily by her mid teens. Later she discovered cocaine could help her drink more. This lead to a cycle that she found it almost impossible to escape. In this interview, she describes her (lack of) education about alcohol, how her drinking and use of other drugs escalated, how she realised she had a problem and the lengths she went to to stop. Age 28 at the time of filming and with a young son, Suzanne had been clean and sober for two years.
