Elizabeth Vargas to Write Memoir on Alcoholism

VargasGeorgeABC’s Elizabeth Vargas is writing a memoir about her struggle with alcoholism that will be published by Grand Central Publishing in 2016.

“When I first began to worry about my own drinking, I turned to books other women had written about their own alcoholism. I learned I was not alone, and it helped me find the courage to reach out and get help,” Vargas said in a statement. “I have spent my entire life telling other peoples’ stories. This one is my own, and is incredibly personal: the burden and loneliness of of the secret drinker.”

Vargas, the host of “20/20,” spent time in rehab last year. She talked about her experience on “Good Morning America” in January, saying: ““This isn’t what I want to be known for, but I’m really proud of what I did.”
