By going back in our own drinking histories, we could show that years before we realized it we were out of control, that our drinking even then was no mere habit, that it was indeed the beginning of a fatal progression.TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 23
When I was still drinking, the smallest incident triggered a state of mind that believed it necessary to numb my feelings with alcohol.
But this numbing only made problems worse and led me down an emotionally harmful path – until one night when everything changed..

The conclusion of this post should be that alcoholism is a destructive disease.
It’s not something you can control, and the person may think they’re in control when really it’s just an illusion.
Alcoholism affects everything about their life, even to the point where they don’t know how to take care of themselves without alcohol.
Recovery for them starts with one day at time – it’s tempting but fatal to believe otherwise.
