    Really, do we as humans, REALLY find ourselves to be powerless over this simple, yet at times, complicated affair, with a chemical that WE created, to be so hard to overcome?

    We most certainly have THE power to end it. WE created it.

    Alcoholism (to me at least) is like a bad marriage. I love alcohol, and I absolutely hate it, with all of my heart

    We know that this “power” of alcohol is a formidable foe.

    I have been battling this ******* for some time now, sometimes weak in the battle against it, falling back into the same old game…

    Some insight would be appreciated….:grouphug:
