For 31 years Irene Harris has lived with an alcoholic. Daughter of an alcoholic, sister of an alcoholic and mother of an alcoholic, she is faced with the crisis of her own lack of self-esteem.

She reluctantly seeks the help of the Queen Mary Hospital at Hanmer Springs, as a non-drinking co-dependent. Through their programme she regains the strength to take charge of her own life.

This is an engrossing story of one woman's determination to break the bonds of alcoholic abuse.
