    The difference between sober and drinking is overwhelming.

    It's hard to have to view trust as anything less than second nature. I am guardedly optimistic.

    It is not a disease.

    It takes commitment to become addicted to alcohol.

    In my experience ( my mother was an addict and it killed her) most addicts are nothing but selfish and narcissistic and when the world which they believe should be all about them doesn't live up to their expectations they drink or smoke or shoot up.

    If it was only that simple. In most addicts, the inner hard wired pleasure and reward center of the brain gets hijacked, putting the drug or drink on top of the list ahead of food, shelter, sex, etc.

    But at the end of the day, it's the addict's conscience decision alone that decides the outcome.

    IMHO
