Alcohol had been a hiding place for Uhuru’s niece to hide her biggest problems. It made her forget so many things. Before she could realize how much damage it costed her, Nana was already an addiction.
‘’At 21 Years, I checked into a rehab for alcohol addiction, I used to drink to mask other things I was going through at that time. I started drinking to forget and feel numb before long i got hooked’’ She narrates. Everyone was loosing hope in her recovery. She further gave details of how alcoholism was selfish. Luckily, she came out of it after given last chance by her brothers.
