    Ranchi: Beauty queen-turned-actor Dia Mirza found herself lost in drugs and alcoholism at a very young age.
    Professing anti-alcoholism, the former Miss Asia Pacific and Femina Miss India runner up 2000, shared how she had battled drug addiction and alcoholism for 14 years.
    During the third edition of IIM-Ranchi’s annual conclave TEDx, organised at SAIL auditorium in Ranchi on Sunday, the Bollywood actor admitted, “I witnessed the effects of alcoholism at the tender age of 9 because someone close to me was addicted to it. I struggled with drugs and alcoholism for several years."
    "It took me 14 years to realise that it is not an addiction, but a disease," she said while giving a motivational speech during the programme.
    "Don't hate alcoholics. Reach out to the people, who need help," she pleaded.
