PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Vicky Pattison has issued a lengthy post over her Channel 4 documentary on alcoholism. Yesterday, the Geordie Shore star shared a tearful selfie on Instagram. Vicky shared: "I've spent the last month talking about things that I've kept bottled up for years- in the hopes that people will watch my documentary tonight and understand a little bit more about addiction and alcoholism. But I'd be lying if I said it hasn't left me completely emotionally exhausted. Every interview I did I grew closer and closer to tears. "I went and hid in the toilets at the BBC today and had a little cry after my chat- which I'd been threatening to do all day if I'm honest with myself. If this documentary helps just one person feel less alone or brings one family closer together I'll consider it a job well done. And honestly, I don't regret a single thing, I'm proud of the show, so proud of my dad and finally I feel more in control of my life and future than I ever have before.

I hope you all get something from the show tonight. I hope it brings you some clarity and peace and more than anything I hope it helps you understand what those struggling with addiction and those that love them have to face on a daily basis." And today, after the doc aired, she wrote: "Recover is not a race. It is a daily battle that a lot of people will never understand. They will assume those suffering are selfish and seek to distance themselves from the inevitable chaos that addiction brings.

. And of course, I drank more to cope. "You'd think I have no more tears left to cry after breaking down and practically sobbing on pretty much every tv show and radio show in the country- and don't forget print interviews- I cried in those too But I am crying as I write this- not because I am sad- but because for the first time in a long time I am hopeful for my future- I have every faith that I can have a normal and healthy relationship with ercan, that I can be a good mam and that I can live a life filled with light, love and happiness and not one filled with heartache, pain and constant disappointment of the ones I love. "I am forever grateful to @channel4 and @firecrackerfilms for taking a chance on me and allowing me to and my dad to make this documentary. I had a firm belief that this documentary needed to be made, that it would help people, make people feel less alone... I had no idea that it would end up saving me from myself. Thankyou everyone for your gorgeous messages of support and kindness- I knew this was going to resonate with people but I genuinely had no idea how many people have been affected by alcoholism- it just further reaffirms my belief that we need to talk more openly and candidly about addiction and our experiences with it. "Finally I just wanted to say that I love my dad more than anything in the world and I'm so proud of him for being for honest, raw and above all else incredibly brave. You're amazing @johnpattison58." Vicky Pattison: My Dad, Alcohol And Me aired on Tuesday, August 2 on Channel 4 and All 4. The documentary is now available to catch up via the All 4 Hub.
