'I turn 65 on Christmas Day 2009. If I survive, I'll be 40 years sober. This means that I have had 40 more years on this planet than I otherwise would have had if I hadn't stopped drinking alcohol.'

From his first drink at the age of fourteen Ross Fitzgerald has struggled with alcoholism. His story is one about despair, courage and hope – and living to see another day. Insightful, brutally honest and inspiring, My Name is Ross is his account of life as an alcoholic and his battle to get sober and stay sober.

'This is a compelling and courageous exposure of an alcoholic's journey to personal destruction and beyond. Ross Fitzgerald has survived to tell an exceptional tale of love and power.' – Quentin Dempster, journalist and broadcaster, ABC TV
