To celebrate 40 years of sobriety, Ross Fitzgerald published My Name Is Ross (2010) - the story of his battle with alcoholism. Although he has now succeeded in not drinking alcohol or using drugs for 50 years, in this revised and updated edition the author still calls himself an alcoholic, and pays extended tribute to the role of Alcoholics Anonymous in keeping him on the wagon.
Ross Fitzgerald is a successful academic, writer, reviewer and commentator in the media and acknowledges that it remains a daily battle to remain sober.
