Everybody Has a Story - 003 - Kara
An addiction is a compulsion to engage in any substance or behaviour in order to feel good or avoid feeling bad.
However, Kara doesn't think she has an addiction even though she drinks a lot.
The most abused drug in Australia is alcohol with 33% of serious car accidents and 75% of assaults are linked to alcohol use.
Kara says she will give anything to make the pain go away. She didn't realise how much help she really needed.
It is very difficult to overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol, especially on your own...
