Author Gabrielle Glaser knows about women and drinking. Throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s, she watched women move from glasses of wine to flasks to sneaking big Merlot empties into recycling bins. And she did a fair amount of drinking herself. She's written a book about it, called "Her Best Kept Secret". Don Merrill talks with Gabrielle Glaser about why women can be honest with themselves about their drinking and why AA doesn't work for them.

The state found me on the streets alone when I was two years old. I had lice, was suffering from malnutrition, and cigarette burns covered my body. While in the foster care system, I went through seven foster homes in which I continued to endure abuse. When I was four, a loving family adopted me. Because of my abuse, I had severe scarring all over my body, and my adoptive parents had to put vitamin E oil on me each night before I went to bed. As I got older, the state provided information regarding my abusive family history, but by that time my heart was hardened and guarded. When I became a teen, my parents were unable to emotionally reach me. They sent me to boarding school, but I left and ended up on the streets.
