They drink to enable themselves to manufacture a world without pain. Over time this is reinforced and when that time DOES come to put away the "blinder" all of a sudden those buried feelings and emotions emerge with a vengeance. People go back to the bottle because they never address those issues or they stop maintaining their recovery and life itself becomes overpowering. Life seen through the bottom of a bottle is distorted. The alcoholic "comes to" and they still see it as distorted. Only through accepting guidance and support can one "untwist the distortion and understand their fears are mostly unfounded.
