From an early age Kate thought being an alcoholic and junkie were cool. Her first drink was at a Saint Patrick’s Day family gathering at the age of 13 or 14. By 16, Kate started snorting and smoking heroin and fell in love with it immediately. After a couple stints in rehab, Kate received what she calls “the gift of desperation” and got clean and sober at the age of 19. She’s remained that way for 2 years now and is a fine example that recovery can happen no matter how young you are.
