Yes its a disease, cunning, baffling and insideous. And I would wish it on no one. But with education you move from being a victim to a volunteer. It took me four years to get there. That the scariest thing in my life would be to pick up another drink. I have no reservations in he back of my head that I will drink "if this happens or I feel this bad.." My own history and the stories of other makes me realize it ONLY make things worse. And the suffering and pain that we may be experiencing now will only get worse to depths we cant even comprehend. And the interesting thing that happened when I finally surrendered fully this summer the desire to drink was lifted!! And Ive been heavily involved in recovery for 4+ years including 1 1/2 years of sobriety. So in the end - THINK. YOU are the only person who can make you drink, not other people, places, things, circumstances, pressures, deaths, losses, whatever.

I created a similar thread over on Trich World a couple of years ago (the Trich social networking site) and it's still popular! So I thought I'd...
