DAVID CAMP­BELL Al­co­holism

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - REAL LIFE -

Camp­bell wasn’t an al­co­holic when he made the de­ci­sion to stop drink­ing, but he was well aware that he could be­come one. “There’s ad­dic­tion on both sides of my fam­ily and I was stand­ing at the door­way of a very dark room,” the To­day Ex­tra host wrote in 2015. “I don’t want my kids to grow up to think drink­ing is wrong, but I sure as hell don’t want them to grow up think­ing that get­ting drunk is ex­pected of them. I changed my habits so that they have an ex­am­ple of some­one who doesn’t drink. In do­ing so, I hope I’ve stopped the cy­cle of al­co­holism in my fam­ily.”
