    AA has many strong points. However, it’s easy to think by it’s literature that alcoholism means blackouts, seizures, jails and institutions. But more current literature says that we already have a problem when it’s still fun. It’s not how much we drink, but what happens when we do.

    I agree. I live in a nice home, with a loving husband and son, drive a decent car (not a Rolls, mind you, but nice enough!)… on the surface I was a “high bottom” addict/alcoholic. But I drank/used for 12 years, and it made my life and the lives of those around me into a living hell. I am 24 and have a hell of a lot more than most 24 year olds I know. However, my life is just now becoming manageable, and is still a lot less manageable than most 24 year olds I know. More on the surface, less in the soul, that is me. But I am growing.

    maryjan,
    it don`t matter what others believe,it is what you believe,and I believe you have accepted the fact you are definitely a potential chronic alcoholic,altho you have not reached the worst stages of alcoholism yet-and you do not have too!

    I suggest you keep going forward with the steps no matter what,and in time,you will slowly lose that control friek stuff as you grow and mature in the program.
