Lee Squire, 51, the owner of Fernwood Fitness health club, Ballarat, was a high-functioning alcoholic.
She shares: "I was 49 and alcohol was ruling my life. It wouldn't have looked that way, though. I was a wife, mother and award-winning businesswoman. I was a high-functioning alcoholic and had been for years. It started with a bottle of wine a night - which, over time, became two. I'd often pass out on the couch and stay there for the night."
